“Great beer, food is hit and miss.”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

Braustub'l has the atmosphere you would expect from a German brewery serving food, almost to the point of being a stereotype. The main attraction here deserves to be the local beer, and the various options are all worth a try. The food is traditional German fare prepared with various degrees of success. The Flammkuchen one of my colleagues had were pretty tasty, but other dishes less so. My schnitzel was well made but the accompanying potatoes were extremely undercooked and under seasoned. The same for my Apfelkuchen dessert: really tasty filling and pie crust spoiled by a burnt base.

Braustub'l won't win any food awards but it is still worth a visit for the beer and a snack to go with that

“Never again !”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

The staff here seem to be locked in to the dark ages of German service model - ie. the customer is a nuisance - and a necessary evil. Asked for spicy sauce for my rack of ribs - it was though I was asking for something totally unreasonable.
Food was bland - dry - left half the rack of ribs - only ate the first part because I was hungry.

“Good German Food”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

I have eaten here a few times and the food and beer is always of a good, consistent quality. Reasonably priced - try the beer sampler and the potato's.

“Standard german food with pleasant atmosphere”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

This restaurant is one of the most popular in Darmstadt if you want to have some local german food. The restaurant is huge, more than 3 different levels, with tables and booths around copper beer tanks. The menu is large to provide every kind of sausages, pork and other food you are looking for for, the prices are quite cheap, but food is good nothing special. They also have a very large variety of local beers and apple wines.
The staff is kind, very friendly and extremely patient, since we asked different bills and a separate bill for the drinks. The only pity is that it is too noisy but the very german and bavarian mood worth a visit.

“Popular place!!”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

We ate here while on business in the area. Very close to the train station and cinema complex. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food is traditional German - English descriptions available on the menu!! The food served was good - this is reflected by the apparent popularity of this place.
