We happened upon this restaurant while walking around town and initially thought it was great because it has a beautiful beer garden next to the river. It was a great spot for an afternoon beer. However, we thought we would go for dinner that same trip and I called to make reservations since we have a party of eight. The... More

Found this place by accident and ending up going back a few times during our stay in Nurnberg. It's a fun, friendly place. Great location and good food. Highly recommend it!

We happened across this place after visiting Kaiserburg and Garden of Roses, enjoyed having beer and food in a lovely setting, then wandered back over the various bridges, nice way to wind down after a long travel and sightseeing. Would seek out again.

For me this was one of the two best beer gardens in the city. It's right by the river and some lovely old bridges and buildings. Service was usually pretty good. If you sit on the bottom level right by the river then you have to go into the bar to order your drinks

I go here every year with friends. The food, while nothing special or surprising, is good quality staple Bavarian food. It is, after all, a beer garden. On a nice warm evening its a lovely place to settle with some friends, have some beers, people watch, have some Nurnberger sausages and enjoy the atmosphere of being right next to the... More

The Kettensteg is located right by the river Pegnitz; with the lower level boasting of a little bier-garten and the upper level having a number of tables. The location is perfect and I highly recommend it for a relaxed evening out. I did not taste the food, but the drinks are really well-made and well-priced. Definitely visit it to explore... More

We were on a small bike ride along the river Pegnitz and decided to stop for a late lunch. As the weather was nice, the beer garden was a natural choise. The service worked pretty fast, even considering how many customers there were, so that's a plus. But also from the service, the meals arrived a few minutes apart to... More

Lovely meal on a recent warm summer night. It is a short walk from the center, but leafy and shaded, next to the river. It was packed when we visited as they had a large outdoor screen showing one of the quarter final Europe Cup matches. We ordered two pork shoulder plates and a plate of Nurnberger sausages, along with... More

A taste of Franconian cuisine in a fascinating setting, near the Pegnitz river.
