This was the perfect spot for a friend's brunch on a Sunday afternoon. Wasn't too busy, we were able to easily book a reservation for a table. The food is delicious and on a lazy Sunday, having a few cocktails with our meal was the perfect added touch!

Very cool place where the comfort is unique and cozy. The pretzels and perogies were OUTSTANDING. Spetzel was very good as well. The crowd was eclectic, the vibe was relaxed and fun. Definitely worth the experience- we will be going back!

My husband and I went there on a week night just because we love schnitzel and wanted to try the place. Our waiter was exceptional, the ambiance really nice and cozy, but the food was disappointing especially if you've had authentic schnitzel in the past. Unfortunately, both my husband and I had, having lived in Germany for a while, and also having had an excellent German restaurant near our old place in IL. The cut was very small and not thin enough, and it gave you the impression that it was deep-fried. The spaetzle were way too greasy and almost lost in the cheese and butter. The potato salad and pretzel were ok, but they were not what we went to the restaurant for. Finally, the drinks and beer menu were way over priced ( $11 for a glass of gluewein(!), $11 for Koelsch Frueh which is normally at half price even when it's imported). We really wanted to like this place, but we are not going back.

We loved the ambiance and food at Bronwyn! It was festively decorated for the holiday season and the music playlist was spot on. We ordered the charcuterie plate, Schnitzel and Knodel. All were fantastic!

Bronwyn is not just one of the best German restaurants in the Boston area, it's one of the best German restaurants in the U.S. Our meal was spectacular as always. Slightly pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

Everything about Bronwyn was excellent. Having lived in Germany, the cuisine was on-point and it transported me back to Bavaria. Also, the waitstaff was remarkably friendly and the service was exceptional. We'll be back.

Bronwyn is one of our favorites. The ambience is great, the menu enticing and the service is very attentive. The beer options range from a lite lager to a hearty dark - and many options in between. We had the potato salad and the spaetzle to start - both excellent. My wife had the spaetzle as her main course and I had the sauerbraten. While the sauerbraten was excellent, her spaetzle was a little undercooked and swimming in butter. Regardless, Bronwyn is an excellent place to return to over and over!

Amazing service from the moment I walked in. The hostess was very nice and recommended we eat in the front area near the bar because it was quieter. The waiter was extremely nice, gave great suggestions and also was attentive. Food was outstanding! I had Schnitzle and it was amazing. Highly recommend eating here.

The waitress was great and the food was very good also. My mother did no complain about the German food not being German. This is the first time , she always criticizes that it doesn't taste like being home. ( Heidelberg Germany. )

I love this place, my mom is from Munich so coming here when I’m in town is a taste of her homeland and change from my usual go tos. The details from the menu to the decor and beer offerings are perfect for family meals or dates. I definitely urge everyone that likes good beer or cocktails paired with hearty food to drop in. Parking is tight but a loop around the block usually allows for street parking or a spot in the small lot to open up.

Bronwyn looks like an authentic German pub with plenty of beer on tap and efficient wait staff . The downside is the food which is average at best . Great place for millennials .

Bronwyn was everything as advertised, I've been to Germany on business and this was just like being there, except with better service and quality. Not a clunker on the menu, which was nice and compact, and the beer selection was excellent. Cant wait to go back.

I really can’t say enough good things about this place. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The menu was small but provided wonderful options. The food was delicious, in fact we just kept ordering more and more food as the night went on. The beer list was lengthy, as was the schnapps list, and they offered a few creative and delicious cocktails as well. Honestly nothing bad to say! If you’re thinking of going... just do it.

The food was different than we had anticipated from other German restaurants we have been to. The knockwurst I am used to is like a double wide hot dog. Obviously not the same taste but looks and color are similar. These knockwurst were not close to what I have had in Germany. I would definitely go back because of the service. A bit expensive for 4 adults it was almost $300 with tip. That includes 5 drinks.

We very enjoyed the atmosphere, the service, the unusual menu at Bronwyn. It was great to sit outdoors on picnic tables. Inside the decor is charming and unusual. The food is quite good although I was a bit disappointed by my dish, the Haxe Hash. My husband got the potato dish which was better. The hash portion was quite small and I did not find it particularly flavorful. But everything else was good and the general laid back ambiance was great.
