The beer Hofbrau Dunkel was cold and refreshing. The schweineshcnitzle and Spatzle was fantastic. Reminded me of when I was in Germany in 1980. Great place and atmosphere. Will be back.

Open bar area with no quiet place to sit. Pretzels were excellent! Burger and brat were nothing to brag about. The amount of time waiting to get our check was about 40 min.

I was excited to be there to celebrate my last day of cancer treatment. We were given free dessert.
The wait staff was awesome and of course Steve Gripp and the Band were great.

I had a terrific tender pot roast dinner and my wife had the beef stroganoff which she said was really tender and extremely tasty. My son’s loved the pretzel appetizers as did we. The best part was the price...very affordable for a downtown restaurant!

Went in for fish Friday. Food and service were top notch. But there was a party going on in the back of the restaurant that was super loud. Got us thinking that the arched architecture may have amplified it. Would definitely go back for the food drink and prompt service. Very historical building.

We started with the Giant Pretzel...and we all said best pretzel we have ever had. Six of us with six different sandwiches and liked them all. Think our top vote would go to the walleye sandwich!

Went for the Friday fish fry. Fish was hot, crunchy and delicious. Best hush puppies I've ever had. Very friendly waiter and excellent service. We went early (about 5:30) and I sure we were ahead of any kind of dinner crowd.

Awesome experience. We had reservations for 5:45 on a Friday and they were ready for us. We parked in the lot adjacent to the restaurant and were having a dinner before a Disney on Ice show with our 4 year old Daughter. Honestly for a bar/restaurant on the Friday before St. patty’s day they were family friendly and provided great service. The waitress gave great food and they didn’t seem rushed at all. We will go back soon!

Didn’t love the live band. Food was good and the drinks were good. Really could have done without the band.
