Great vibe, lots of beer selection, good sausage choices include game meat. Worth to go back! Pretzels, schnitzels, oysters and schweinhake are recommended; esp schweinhake was so hearty and delicious, liked their side dish sauerkraut, very good too.

Just like a German beer hall. We met for a reunion of retired co-workers. Our server was so knowledgeable on the extensive beer menu (it's probably 100 times longer than the food menu). While the restaurant can accommodate groups of larger size in booths and...More

Fabulous beer selection, great atmosphere. Oysters are brilliant but the main course lies so. Had a great time here but had the food been better it would have earned 5 stars from me. Don't get me wrong the food is better than some other local...More

Fantastic drinking establishment with great food. Could not believe the wonderful assortment of beer both foreign and local in this Bavarian style facility. Cannot wait to come back!
