Beethoven's 9th: The Restaurant is a German restaurant just off the square in Paola, Kansas. Beethoven's 9th is only open Thursday through Saturday. The menu includes German food, steaks, seafood, hamburgers and other sandwiches. There are 20 side dishes, including hot German potato salad, spaetzle, red cabbage, sauerkraut, baked potato and Caesar salad.

After several visits I am quite pleased with Beethoven's 9th restaurant. Their Jaeger Schnitzel (pork loin - breaded and pan fried with creamy mushroom sauce) is so good that I almost licked the plate. Other dishes that I like include the cold potato salad, sausages, and hamburgers. Beethoven's 9th offers three types of hamburgers: sirloin, buffalo and chicken. The French fries and onion strings are nothing special.

The prices are reasonable and the servings of German food are large. The $12.99 sausage sampler appetizer is four large sliced sausages surrounding a large serving of sweet sauerkraut, and could easily be a meal. The sauerkraut is sweet and some of the best sauerkraut we have ever had. It is best when the mustard, sauerkraut and sausage are combined in the same bite. Beethoven's Finest Sampler for $17.99 could be a meal for 2 people.

The hamburgers start at $9.99 including the choice of one side dish. The burger is a full inch thick and stuck outside the bun around the sides. It was cooked perfectly to order.

Most of the desserts, including the signature cookies are baked on premises. Those cookies are a stand out. The chocolate chip cookies are thick like biscuits and have nearly as much chocolate as cookie batter. My favorite cookie is the peanut butter chocolate chip, but slightly under baked snickerdoodles are nearly as good. The cookies are $3 each and a single cookie weights about 1/2 pound.
