“Had a good time!”

Great food and generous portions. The atmosphere is really fun I enjoyed the trivia. It can get very busy though. I will go back!

“Close to Wang theater, worth a visit”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We were there with a group and had reserved the back room for the gathering. Appetizers were ordered in advance and were ready when we arrived. We had a few assigned waitresses to handle our group for drinks and dinner orders, they were efficient and food and drink arrived in a timely fashion. I enjoyed the German potato salad, Cobb salad and potato pancakes. I was a little disappointed in the wursts, they were average. Definitely would stop there again when in Boston.

One of the oldest restaurants in Boston-definitely worth stopping by. Fun atmosphere...great food, service and location. Large portions and great variety if authentic German food and beers. We will go back the next time we are in Boston.

“Great foods, not all German”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

We were there Friday, May 9th. Meet up with friends. Not far from South Station or Residence Inn on Congress St. Great fun place to meet friends. German hamburger and onion rings were great. German beer top notch. Gotta have there on tap German beer or a Sam Adams Boston Lager. I had the raspberry salad. Yum. There was a sing along thru out the night that made it more festive. It can get loud so raise your voice. Great night with friends.
