We had a great time! Band was wonderful. Food was good but they need additional options. Service was very nice. Service could have been more attentive but the servers were very busy so no complaints. We'll be back.

The food was great.The waitress was excellent. She had suggestions for my son in law,who normally does not eat German food. He was satisfied .See Haus band really got the crowd in the mood. It was not quiet but it was not supposed to be.

Sat at a patio table therefore quiet enough for conversation. Service was at first very slow but improved. We had a vegetarian with us and there really is nothing substantial on the current menu for a vegetarian. The salads are nothing more than over priced field greens. The large pretzel tasted stale and the Obatzda was terrible. The dip should be soft and warm. Theirs was cold and thick like drying paste. Beer is good. Go for a beer and fun but eat somewhere else first.

Our family had a great time. Service and food were excellent. Glad to give another star once they have a full menu. We’ve been to the original in Munich, glad we have one so much closer now.

I understand you are still on a soft opening but the menu is small and the choices we had were not very good.I had the goulash it was terrible as the meat was very dry, I cant understand how you can not even offer spatzle which is the easiest thing to make. The only bright spot was your waitress Zanda Lee she made the evening a little better.

Sit in main hall. No fun if you don't. Wine is small and overpriced. $6 for half a glass. Food was good ..not great. Pretzel best thing. Service was erratic. I'd go back...but needs improvement.

The food and beer were excellent, but our service was the worst I have ever had in my life! Our beer order sat at the corner of the bar waiting for our waitress to get them to us for over 10 minutes. When she finally retrieved them, she stopped and talked with another waitress for over 5 minutes while holding our beers. She disappeared again for about 10-15 minutes before she returned to take our food order. She ruined a good meal.

Highly Recommend - Made reservations online. Parking attendant was very helpful and worth paying to get on the onsite parking lot. Seated almost immediately. Service was great. Beer, of course, was excellent and the food was delicious and not overpriced. We were outside which was busy but fun. The inside looked like a lot of fun - people standing on the benches, singing, etc. Lots of energy!! Bathrooms were respectable, too.

Pretty authentic German Beer Hall experience! (Except for standing on the tables. They don't do that in Bavaria.) Don't come hungry if you are a vegetarian. The food is good, but the music, ambiance, and beer are the stars here!

This location only has a limited menu . My friend and i were hoping for more but that was ok . my pork dinner was fantastic. no complaints . but my friends dinner of a huge sausage not so great . the sausage was bland and no spice and the roll fell apart .let's talk German potato salad . who created this has never had good German potato salad . it was mushy potatoes with vinegar .it was horrible . served cold . even warmed up it was awful! Go back and find a better recipe ! Now dessert was really good . get the apple crisp .! dinner cost with a beer and tip 50.00! but i was ok with that . my dinner was really good . Hoping with bigger menu i can get her to come back. I guess a lot of people just use the patios for beer and snack . I'll come back but hot you can fix that salad !! good luck . service with Micheal was great !!

I've been here a few times so far and it has been nothing but great. Food is on point and it reminds me of food from my Fatherland. Not to mention their beer, which is some of the best I've had in Buffalo. Hefe is definitely a favourite of mine. If you are new to the German Bier haus experience this is a great place to start

We were on our way to the Major League Baseball game at Sahlen field in Buffalo NYS to watch the Toronto Blue Jays and the Red Sox and decided what an awesome way to start the evening to go out for beer and brats. Food and beer is always delicious. We were lucky to get reservations quickly. Service is always with a smile. If you enjoys German Brats and Beer as well as fun this is the place. Bring your friends along.

Seated on time. Server was wonderful…helpful and personable. The building/ambiance was great. Frankfurter was the best ever, as was the sauerkraut!. Pretzel was good. Beer selection….well, there really isn’t one. For a “Beer Town” 3-4 German beers might surprise many. I had the seasonal Pils, which was nice. A few local brews might be a welcome addition.

Looking forward to the extended menu “coming soon “ !

It was a very fun event! Well worth the $25 to get in. $40 for food was okay but not worth it fir me ad I didn’t eat much. A couple of the main dishes were empty and my fault but I didn’t wait for more. Overall great place and lots of fun.
