Old Style German Food

The postcard below shows KILLMEYER’S as it appeared around 1907.  Viewed closely the original shows that Monroe Eckstein’s Four Corners Brewery supplied the beer here.  KILLMEYER’S had already been around for half a century, at least.  Ol’ Cap Simonson claims that part of this building goes back to the early 1700’s.  The earliest maps show one or two structures in this area, so who knows?  We do know that Balthazar Kreischer sold this property to Nicolas Killmeyer around 1855.  The next generation of Killmeyers expanded the original building, made the upstairs hotel, and commissioned the beautiful Mahogany bar in 1890.  The Simonson family bought the building from the Killmeyer heirs in 1945.  It was known as “Rube’s” until the 1950’s when Cappy decided that the 100 year old structure would be better off called, “The Century Inn”.  In 1995 we bought it from the Simonson family, restored it and renamed it KILLMEYER’S OLD BAVARIA INN.
Whether you are planning a small get together in our private party room, listening to music in our large outdoor Beer Garden, or feasting on an authentic German dinner in our main dining room, you will agree that KILLMEYER'S is a unique and exciting piece of Staten Island history.

4 other great places to go&eat in Staten Island: 

Bario's Catering at 446 Nome Avenue (the nearest cross street is Richmond Avenue. Open for lunch on weekdays from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM and for dinner from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Offering traditional Italian fare, the $6.25 per person lunch special is sure to fill small and large tummies and the friendly atmosphere is conducive to the family dining experience. 

If your family includes older kids (4th graders and up) the Adobe Blues eatery is a good choice for lunch. Located at 63 Lafayette Avenue since 1992, lunch is served daily from 11:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Capitalizing on Southwestern food choices, families will enjoy spicy buffalo sausages, mini tacos, corn nuggets, and Buffalo wings along a plethora of main courses. Take the kids there for dinner at your own risk as the eatery's clientele gravitates more heavily to the saloon side of the biz. 

An oldie but goodie with respect to family dining is Applebee's and the one on 2720 Veterans Road West is no exception. This restaurant offers the kind of food choices kids love and you will be hard pressed to find any other restaurant in the vicinity where even the youngest and pickiest of eaters will not find something that appeals to their taste buds. Although chain restaurants are somewhat of a hit or miss proposition, Applebee's is exception to the rule and family dining was never easier!

For those in the mood for pizza, the Valeno Grill is the destination of choice. Located at 530 Forest Avenue, this restaurant is closed on Mondays but open for lunch and dinner Tuesdays through Sundays. Known for al fresco dining, this is a great place to take teens and older kids, and if they fancy themselves something of a singer, then open mike karaoke will be a great family activity for everyone involved!
