It’s really nice to have an outdoor space available that serves a lot of great beer at a reasonable price. The dates were also incredible. I’ll be back for sure!

The outdoor patio is a nice size and there was a surprise music performance that added to the ambience. They have an amazing blue cheese bacon dip for fries that I will be going back for. The negatives was that there was a cat that was there that was allowed to roam and sit on top of various spots. To me this is not the time to have animals around and people petting it and not washing hands. Other than that I have no problems returning for outdoor dining.

We made our reservation, I called and confirmed with staff the kitchen would be open during our reservation time. The hostess told us we had 55 minutes to order food. When our server came to our table, we were informed the kitchen was closed early. We went home hungry. No effort to correct this oversight on their end.

I chose this establishment for my birthday because it was offering patio outdoor seating for brunch. I am also a big fan of German food and beer having spent some time in Frankfort Germany with the military. The array of sausages was terrific as I had the Kielbasa sausage with sauerkraut and spicy mustard with pickle slices and a side salad. The rest of my party had schnitzel sandwich and another type of sausage sandwich. The humus appetizer was just ok. The fries with the different type of sauces was pretty good particularly the bleu cheese sauce! I had the Stiegl grapefruit beer which was good. Only wish they had Shoenhoffer beer, my favorite!

Fantastic service both times we have been to their outdoor patio. Great confidence in their Covid protocols and they were extremely accomodating to my toddler which was very appreciated. We are telling all of our friends to go.

Hostesses were extremely helpful and accomodating! I cannot thank them enough for helping with my requests. However, the server we had was not very welcoming and at times standoffish. The timing of service was not the best and after asking for waters it took a while to receive a drink and we had to be ones to ask for it instead of being offered.

Food was delicious, especially the poutine fries. Highly recommend. Patio is big and there was live music which was great.

Before you walked into the restaurant, they checked your tempatuere and let you know the rules about wearing a mask which is great.

Service was poor, even with Covid this is not an excuse. Food took a long time to come out and was cold. Sandwich was $14 and didn’t even come with a side. Water is $1 per bottle and bottled water is only option.....
