The Old Stein Inn is a survivor. The Edgewater restaurant and pub was almost destroyed by a December 2010 fire, but after $900,000 in renovations, it looks better than ever, just in time for its 30th anniversary. Expect entertainment every weekend through the end of October in the split-level beer garden, including strolling accordion players (Sept. 21 from 5 to 9 p.m.), music with alphorns and cowbells (Sept. 22 from 4 to 8 p.m.), and straight-up polka (Sept. 20 from 6 to 10 p.m.). Make reservations and come hungry: The pork shank and schnitzel are worth the trip.
On Oct. 4, the Old Stein is hosting an alphorn blowing contest on the patio during a performance by the Heidi und Heimut Echo Band, giving audience members a chance to try the enormous wooden instrument. Then on Oct. 6, the beer garden will host Spanferkel-Fest, with a pig going on the spit to roast at noon and music from Mike and the Continentals at 4 p.m. Reservations are strongly suggested.
