“Locals Spot - try the soup”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

You can't go wrong with beer in Germany so you've got to do something special. The local Timm family introduced me to the local recipe Zolln soup. Damn good for bar food.

“Decent beer stop in Luebeck”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

Still mourning the loss of Paulaner's, and desparately in need of a sanity break leads me to this place. So spoilt i was by Paulaner's that expectations are high. They do serve their own excellent Dunkel beer and an Einbecker Ur-bock. Longish wait for drink to appear after ordering though. Mealwise, the Bratkartoffeln an Spiegelei was tasty and sufficient. In the absence of any decent alternatives, this will serve as my regular bolthole.

Reviewed 11 April 2013

We visited after being advised by a Lubecker that the food was good. It was good advice! the food was simple German fayre which went down well. The service was good and attentive. Try the alsterwasser as an alternative to full beer at lunchtime. Its worth it

“Al fresco lunch - old style”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Old style beer pub. Had lunch sitting outside, on the street (no garden). Straightforward, old style service, no frills: No lengthy explaining the daily specials, but a hint to the dishes that the cook supposedly can do best (for us, the Wiener Schnitzel was great). When it started to rain, however, no staff showed up to help the customers with moving their food (might have to do with the fact that there was a single, if efficient, staff member present during a packed lunch hour).

“Great food. Best beer in Lübeck.”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

We visited just for the off-the-beaten-path beer and were impressed by the food. Appetizers and mains were excellent. The atmosphere was great and so was the service. Enjoy !!
