Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: With its idyllic location next to the river Main the Brauerei-Gasthof Alter Kranen has already a gorgeous setting. But if you let your eyes wander around, you can enjoy a postcard panorama view with the Alte Mainbrücke, Käppele and the fortress. Try a freshly tapped Würzburger Hofbräu beer and some of the typical Franconian specialties like Haxe and Sauerbraten. In the summer months you can sit in the beer garden Alter Kranen and enjoy the sun.

There are 2 entrances. The one near to the river has no steps but is a long way to push a wheel chair. The other has a set of steep stairs to get to the restaurant. The waiters and waitresses are mostly students (all very friendly). The food is edible.

We came by this place during our stay in Wurzburg. It was nice to get some great food which was not boring at all and inspired by the region. I got pizza style from Alsace which was good.

I can recommend this place by the river.

Enjoyed the food and the local beer very much. After sunset the lights came on illuminating the castle on the hill and that was beautiful. There was a wine festival going on and we were treated to a fireworks display. The service was good and they tolerated our poor German and spoke some English. They had an English menu which made ordering much easier. The highlights of this place are the river and the castle view.

Dinner outside. The location is great right by the banks of the Main. Try to get a seat in the area of the old crane, which is nicer than the side deck. It is a huge place, so less romantic candle light, more beer garden feeling even in restaurant area. Typical food from region, ok, buy neither exciting nor made with love. Fair value.

Had dinner there two nights. The staff is friendly and comes to ask you shortly after you sat down. They have excellent food and local beer. The setting is nice with the old cranehouse setting as well as the castle on the other side of the river.
