Traditional German food of all kinds. Had freshly made pork rinds for the first time ever. My kids love to split the huge 20oz warm pretzel that comes with cheese and mustard sauces for dipping. The local atmosphere is so fun. Not a chain restaurant!! Love the bench seating for large groups. The beer steins are huge. Lots of different foods to try. See the extensive menu. If you’re looking for some place different try here. I’m told in warm weather you can go out in the pavilion.
Can’t wait.

Best German food by far in Milwaukee county!

The only complaint is the servings are so large sometimes I am too full to go for the desert ☹️

Service was slow. It was as if the waitress didn’t get our main food order in timely. Appetizers came out quickly which was nice.

The onion rings are always amazing. The chicken schnitzel was dry and the mashed potatoes and gravy were bland. Overall, a pretty mediocre meal.

Had Friday fish fry. Was ok but nothing special. Just like tons of other fish fries, but didn’t expect anything diff.

We go often for their veal dishes. Then we give 5 stars

And hey, it’s a big German beer y’all. Fun and noisy. Complete with German polka band !! Very Milwaukee

Reservation didn’t matter, we had to wait for table. Finally seated in back next ro bussing station directly next to another family - despite COVID protocol as this being the only exception we could see in entire restaurant where they weren’t seating with vacancy in between. Seated in our far off corner we did not receive service. After waiting for 20 minutes for server to acknowledge us we left. Restaurant was full. Service was terrible. Definitely a situation of understaffing.

First time going with a group of friends and we loved the aesthetic of the place. It's very loud with a live band of elders playibg music and children running around, the servers are quick and friendly, and the food came out pipping hot and delicious.

Due to Covid, we purposely made a reservation for the middle of the afternoon - hoping for a light crowd - which was perfect. Our hostess and waiter were outstanding, very personable and helpful. The food is always excellent - but this time two of us ordered the Pork Shank - which was just phenomenal. My husband had the Schnitzel - and it never fails to be a fan favorite.

The baked Bavarian onion soup was delicious. So cheesy. The pig skins were still cracklin after they had been at the table for a bit. The schnitzel was as big as the plate. So much food. Our server was very attentive. I was really hoping to hear some live music. But it was canceled due to the pending snowstorm. Understandable. Maybe next time.

I lived in Germany for three years and this was the first schnitzel I had the USA that has tasted authentically German. The ambience is wonderful and the beer is excellent. If you’re trying to choose between here and Mader’s, the Bierhaus is half as expensive and twice as good... HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
