Hildrud (Wendy) Steiner
Ms. Hildrud Steiner is the proud owner of Gasthaus zur Elli in Newberry County, South Carolina. This is an authentic German restaurant where Ms. Steiner cooks and creates delicious German food. She learned to cook by watching her grandmother and mother cooking when she was a child in Germany. She came to the US in the late 1990's and carries on the family tradition in her restaurant. This restaurant has received many local and state rewards and was even named one of the best German Restaurants in the nation. The Newberry Oktoberfest benefits greatly every year from her service, though the community can enjoy her food all year. Thanks to her restaurant and tradition preservation efforts, Prosperity, South Carolina enjoys visitors from all over the state and beyond!
