“Best Beer Hall in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

I've been going to Lederhosen for the better part of 7 years. I have never had a bad experience.

The food is excellent (try any of the wieners) and the beer selection is top notch. This is one of the few places that has Köstritzer on tap!

If you go, ask for Victor

“Memories of Munich!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

I had just returned from a trip to Germany and we just happened to walk by this restaurant. It's in the basement, the cellar, of a building, and there's nothing special about its exterior. During October, they had some special Oktoberfest beers - I tried the one from tap (but can't remember what it was), It was very good! Also they had weisswurst - and at night! I had been craving weisswurst and got my weisswurst fix at Lederhosen! Only wish is that they had served the weisswurst with a pretzel instead of "American style" in a bun, like a hot dog. There's a restaurant section in the back, but the bar in front is more fun.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2010

Just had the lunch special here (triple sausage) and it was amazing. The currywurst just blew me away... A symphony of flavors that lingered in my mouth for hours. If you love sausage, this place rocks! Great ambience too. it is kinda hidden though, but worth trying to find.

“Great All Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2010

I walked past this restaurant for about two years before I had the guts to try it out. It looks a little intimidating, a basement bar tucked away on a side street, but I can't think of a place I would rather be. Once you get in, the place is amazing. Great sausage. It's four bucks for a really filling sausage with kraut, onions, mustard and cabbage. Throw in some a huge variety of German beer (try the black lager) and you have paradise. The service is not your overly peppy T.G.I.Friday type, it's short and too the point. If you show them respect, they will make you feel like you are one of the gang. And the back room, oh man you need to see it for yourselves.

“The most German restaurant in the US!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2009

We had a great time here. The food is authentically southern German -- the waitresses are as inhospitable as they can be in Germany -- and the food is delicious. There are no windows in the restaurant, which was too bad, but the walls are covered with murals of the alps, an image of Neuschwanstein (the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang castle), Lake Constance, and other discernable southern German landmarks. Yousit at large comfy picnic benches and are served great German beer in the right glasses. The bar (in the front, with windows) seems like a neighborhood watering hole, and everyone is very friendly. We were there on Halloween and had a blast.
