    We had reservations for 6pm for Father’s Day - we got there early and they were able to seat us right away. Food came out quickly after we ordered (helpful when you have 2 little kids with you!) Noise level was pretty quiet as it was early and mostly families with young kids (like us!) Food was good - drinks were good - waitress was nice and attentive.

    Very good food and drinks and aervice....only small complaint is the menu on the website showed saurbrautam and another item that 2 our of 4 of us wanted...unfortunately when we got there those items were not on the menu and the waitress said there are two menus...summer and winter.....disappointing, but still enjoyed everything...especially the potato pancakes.

    The atmosphere is authentic. The food was mediocre. It had no taste, no flavor. With no entree less the $19 it’s not cheap. The waiter was cordial but lazy.

    This was third time there and it’s been lovely. It’s a really popular place so it can be noisy. The food that I’ve tried so far has been tasty. I can see this being a regular date spot.

    Typically my family goes here every month or so but had a terrible experience on 7/4. Seated quickly (party of 5) and ordered drinks - took 25 min to get the drinks and when we reminded waitress only 1 of the 5 came out...had to remind her for 2nd and then decided to not even mention 3 sodas that were missed until later. Ordered appetizers and meals. Waited another 20 minutes and no apps came out and nothing, finally meals came out - they forgot appetizers. I mentioned this to manager - he sent waitress out. she asked what she could do. I said I trust your jusgment - perhaps a small discount. She comp'd $7 drink on a $190+ check... Really surprised particularly when I spoke to manager. No one touched tables, no service recovery - very surprising for this place which is typically a place I highly recommend..maybe give it another shot ? Maybe not..

    I booked for 10 people. I called and was contacted by restaurant 4 times to confirm, which I did. I then arrived 5 minutes late and they gave my table away. After having to wait for the manager who bumped us to get us another table the meal was fine. Just disappointed in the way reservation was handled. Especially since I went out of my way to confirm

    First visit for a group of 8 friends who decided to do a beercation over the weekend. Great beer selection, great food albeit heavy (and large portions). The sauerkraut is a MUST, best I've even had anywhere. Also loved the German potato salad and the elk sausage. The pork schnitzel was outstanding (and huge as I said previously). Renovated warehouse style dining, high ceilings so very noisy, yet fun/lively atmosphere. We will go back.

    This old factory made into a restaurant has a great deal of character. Live music was great but would have liked some German music to make it more octoberfest feeling in October. Would love to see more German dishes on menu like Rouladen and more dessert selections and coffee. Only complaint was menu said chicken schnitzel for kids but it was just regular chicken tenders. My son and daughter were expecting pounded flat chicken schnitzel. Now we know for next time. Food was delicious, especially the pretzel.

    Authentic wursts, schnitzels and pan fried spaetzle! Great hearty food and an incomparable German beer collection. Inside is buzzing with concrete floors but sit back by stage side and it's a bit more tame. Rooftop biergarten is not to be missed. I also like the schnapps offerings to help with digestion. Service was somewhat inattentive for our party of 12.

    What a fantastic meal! I had been wanting to come here for months and the Biergarten DID NOT disappoint! Get the pretzel and potato pancakes! They are a must and will start your meal off just right! The only knock was being dripped on by the A/C but that did not dampen (pun intended) our evening.
