    Service was fantastic. Food was bland unfortunately. We ordered chips with a chicken cheese dip. The dip was very watery and the chips had no flavor or salt. I had potato soup and salad. The salad was ok but the soup again had no flavor. My husband had a brat with fixings. It presented very well but he said again bland. I think it could be a great place to eat if they just use more seasonings, try and be more authentic instead of average.

    To say the most recent bist to Der Braumeister was an amazing time would be a gross understatement. Everything from the welcoming hello’s to the the service, food and beyond was remarkable. Hands down this is my favorite restaurant in the Northeast. Jenn always go out of her way to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves and having a great time. I highly recommend this fine establishment to all. They are the best.

    Unlike other visits, the event created back log at the bar resulting in slow drink service and the schnitzel and beef were both over-cooked. Usually everything is fantastic. But the event seemed to throw off the service and overall experience.

    Der Braumeister RestaurantResponded on November 28, 2021Again, we are sorry to hear your experience did not match your expectations. We also apologize that your server did not inform you that our flight of 12 takes a minimum of 18 minutes to pour. However, we are glad to hear that you have had multiple good experiences. If you like, we would love to send a gift card for your next visit. Please send an email address if that is something you would like.

    Love this place! I ordered the Potato Pancake Reuben, vegetarian style, with fries and it was so so good! The curry ketchup for the fries was delicious. The staff was friendly and attentive, and service was quick. If it's warm outside, I highly recommend sitting on the patio, it's one of the best in Cleveland!

    Out of many dishes at 7:00 on a Saturday night and then would not switch out French Fries for a GF customer. Sketchy location. Would not go back.

    Der Braumeister RestaurantResponded on October 13, 2021We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience. Our goal on Sat night is to run out of food so as not to waste anything (we close Sun-T) Our French Fries are a GF option! If the server did not communicate that, we apologize. Regrading our neighborhood, I am a 3rd-generation owner & live in the community. I am proud that it is one of Cleveland's safest & could never imagine living anywhere that did not share its rainbow of diversity. We are saddened you did not feel safe in our home.
