Haufbrau House is what the sandwich place is called above the cheese shop. Beer is cold, sandwiches are nothing special. Rueben is less than special. Cash only, and a very small place.

My husband and I visited the Hufbrauhaus Restaurant above the Cheese Cupboard in the Village Shops. It was great for an intimate quiet lunch. We both had the Reuben sandwiches which come with chips and a pickle. They were very lean and delicious. We also added a side of potato salad to share and it was outstanding.

Find this shop! It's in The Village, and it's above the cheese shop by the donut friar. You have to be looking for it, but it's worth the effort for lunch. My husband had the Reuben, and u had the hoagie. Wonderful flavor!

This little place is a hidden gem. You almost need to trip over it to find it but, when you do you will not regret it. The service was good and the Brots and Wurst were as good as the ones I fell in love with in Germany. Don't miss your chance at a wonderful affordable lunch in Gatlinburg.

I hate to broadcast this little gem of a deli above the cheese shop in the Village shops for fear that I won't be able to get near the place on my next visit, but being of German descent and tasting Ruebens all over the globe, this is by far, the best I have ever had!!! The corned beef is... More
