Bavarian Bierhaus is a Communal Style Seating Bierhall. Beyond the décor, the entertainment, the food, and the beer, what the Bavarian Bierhaus especially wants to replicate is something called Gemütlichkeit. It is that warm inviting feeling Bavarians exude when they make visitors feel welcome and at home. However, while the Bavarian style of Gemütlichkeit is unique within Germany, it is not unique to Bavaria. Nashvillians would recognize it as southern hospitality.

We hope that you also enjoy your trip to Bavaria while you join us for an authentic serving of Gemütlichkeit at the Bavarian Bierhaus.

Fun experience for anybody that is a lover of German food and ambiance. Having lived outside Munich in college, it was fun to step into the atmosphere for a little while. The food was pretty overpriced (that seems to be a theme in that area of Nashville) and nothing to really write home about but that’s not really what you go for. It’s the fun of being back in a German environment that makes the place a good time.

We had a reservation at 630. We called to change it to 515. They said no problem at all. When we got there, they never updated their iPad. Hostess kept on saying oh we will seat you next. We waited 45 minutes to be seated. Very frustrating. If they couldn’t change the reservation they should have just said so.

Bavarian Bierhaus
Responded on October 14, 2019

I am very sorry for the delay in getting seated. Because you had a reservation, we should have seated you at the next available table that could have accommodated your party. I apologize that this apparently was not the case. Please contact me so that we can make it up to you and encourage you to give us another try. Thanks Bob

We had friends in town that lived in Germany for 11 years (military retirees) so we thought they might enjoy dinner at the Bavarian Bierhaus. They LOVED it and said it was some of the best "true German" cuisine they've had since they moved back home. Morgan was a stellar server and we had a wonderful time. We wish there had been German music to accompany our dinner but 50 Shades of Hay were very good nonetheless.

Responded on October 14, 2019

Barb, We are glad you enjoyed your visit and "50 Shades of Hay". We recently started adding some new musical lineups to our less busy nights (Mondays and Wednesdays). We wanted to mix it up a bit. Please check our home page to see our music schedule so that you can visit us when we have authentic German music in the house. Usually that is Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday night, as well as weekend afternoons. Prost! Bob

The overall ambiance was great, love how at the entrance is a mini store with cute trinkets and European candies. The service was great and well-timed, our waitress was a delight. However the food was not good at all..it claims to be a German restaurant but the food is not authentic and it was hard to eat something that you know was previously frozen or canned. One of the schnitzel plates we could not eat because of this. However, the beer options are fantastic, we had the one where it’s testers of 6 which we all shared.

Responded on September 10, 2019

Vic, I'm sorry you didn't like your Schnitzel. However, I can assure you that nothing you ate except the sauerkraut was previously frozen or canned. (And if you ever have made sauerkraut, you will know why we don't make it on site.) We have a German-trained chef and try very hard to remain authentic to Bavaria. Please contact me and let me know what you did not like about your meal. Thanks Bob

Having visited Bavaria on several occasions, I thought this pretty authentic including beer choices. The entertainment that night was a bit thin but the raucousness of the crowd made up for it. The red cbbage was superb as were the sausages( a wide selection).

We are sorry you found us tacky. We were stationed six years in Germany and wanted to bring an authentic Bierhall back home to Nashville. The comments we get from most people who have lived in Germany, and especially from Germans themselves, tell us that we pretty much got the decor right. We should hope so, since we spent many days doing "research" in Bierhalls. We hope that you will come back again and enjoy the fruits of our research. Prost!

Bavarian Bierhaus
Responded on August 18, 2019

Jeff, We are glad you enjoyed your "flavor of Bavaria". We're sorry if it's a little higher priced than other area restaurants. (Actually, we check around and we are competitively priced with what is around us.) But since we import almost all of our Biers and many of the ingredients we use in our from-scratch kitchen it makes us a little higher priced relative to the chain restaurants around us. We think the extra quality and the experience make us worth it. Hope to see you again soon. Prost!

We went in for a pre-Opry dinner on our 25th anniversary. We were totally disappointed. My wife is deathly allergic to MSG and when she asked if they used it in anything, they said they use it in almost everything they serve. Her anniversary dinner consisted of a pretzel. She was nearly in tears but insisted that I eat a meal. I had the saurbratten and it was fairly good. It came with red cabbage and German potato salad (served cold). German potato salad needs to be warm. It was just weird. This restaurant was a huge disappointment!

Bavarian Bierhaus
Responded on July 31, 2019

DrCEO, I am so sorry to hear that your visit wasn't what you expected. The team member did inform you correctly though, on most menu items we use a seasoning called Maggi (a everyday German seasoning). There are a number of things that do not have this (ie the Salads, Fish and Chips, and Flatbreads) that possibly could have worked. We always do err on the side of caution when a guest has an allergy. Please reach out to me at joe@bierhausnashville so we can make this right for you.

Food was hit and miss. I've been here many many times and is always been good to great. Tonight was very bad. We had large party and some said food was great! My appetizer was excellent but my main dish was room temperature. A few others also had issues with theirs from being dry and over cooked to also not warm or hot. The waitress was absolutely one of the worst I've had anywhere! Rude, in a hurry and just unappealing. That is also a first.
