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.

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 “ !

Catie took great care of us. The beer is always so cool and fresh. Our favorites are the cucumber salad and the rotating soups. Had my 1st shot ski too.

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.

So happy they expanded the menu. The limited offerings that were available previously are all delicious but the chicken was phenomenal. The service was good considering the crowd and as usual the bier is worth the trip alone.

We sat outside on party which is much better then inside, really bad acoustics. I got a soup was lukewarm at best. Our waitress was to pushy, coming to our table too often as if she wanted us out to flip the table.
