“Good choice for a beery lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Great outside seating, extremely competent service and some of my favourite beer in Vienna. The lunch menu for EUR 7.90 is a bargain, not just because the food is pretty good and in very generous portions, but also because if you don't fancy what’s on offer, you can have pork chops/schnitzel/chicken wings/cevapcici at the same price.

They also have a handful of special dishes chalked up on the board based on what’s in season – typical for Vienna is a focus on asparagus, wild garlic or pumpkin, depending on the time of year. There are smoking and non-smoking areas and a room with a huge screen for watching sports. The brunch seems horribly overpriced, so we have never tried it.

For well-priced, typical Austrian food with reliable service, come here for lunch or order a classic such as Schnitzel or ribs with their homemade beer.

“Anytime”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

This restaurant has plenty of room - so even if its a busy Friday night there's a table waiting for you! We had the burgers which were excellent.

“Shady restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

Just left this restaurant after a nice meal but very out off by the shady service. Waiter refused to take our credit card making my husband walk to 3 different ATMs in the freezing cold to get cash.... After a half hour of waiting while my husband was running all over Vienna the server "miraculously" says I can use my card and " how much would I like to tip?" Shame on you Plutzer Brau. That's just shady and bad business.

“disapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

This was one of the more disappointing experiences in Vienna. Food and Service were below average, we were 5 people and not one Meal was above average. Prices are in no relation to quality either.

“Amazing ribs and Käsespätzle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Every time we come to Viena during Christmas season we go to the Spittelberg christmas market and have dinner at Plutzer Bräu, a typical Austrian Gasthaus with good food. This time we enjoyed lovely porc ribs and Käsespätzle. Big portions! Good beer! Heavy food, just perfect when it's cold outside...
