My favorite place to eat. I had the wurst plate, fest beer and a delicious pumpkin cream puff. It was also the first night of bringing back live music.

We sat outside. It was chilly at sunset. Hopefully they will install heaters this fall and winter.

Sat outside in Bier Garten. Great service by Zoe. Friendly and personable. Tried the giant pretzel trio - loved the pretzel. I’m not much of a dipper but tried all 3. Shared a Reuben. Nice taste great bread - not greasy. Crispy fries. Ended my meal with a creamy flaky cream puff.

Wife and I love it, we took my son and mom for the first time Saturday. As usual the food and drinks are outstanding. Our waitress was exceptional and did an amazing job. We all loved her. We however didn't enjoy siting upstairs next to the wedding party that had a DJ on the other side of the wall. Hope to sit down in the main hall next time.

Their beer is amazing. Standard 3 beers are Lager, Dunkel Lager and Hefeweiss-Wheat. The Dunkel is authentic and can't be found elsewhere. The Wheat is also very good. They should add an authentic German Pilsner to their main/standard offering - they don't have a pilsner I'm guessing because that is not a traditional Bavarian beer - but that's the only thing missing from them having a very good representation of all German beers. Food is good - pricing on food is a little high. The Schnitzels are great. Sides are all very authentic and great. The sausages are just OK. They also have burgers and chicken sandwiches and chicken tenders if you don't like German-style food. Atmosphere in main hall with German music on some nights and weekends is special/fun. They do have some outside seating seasonally - and they have seating upstairs away from the music/main hall if that is preferred by you and your guests.

A fun place, with great atmosphere and great service. I highly recommend attending the monthly tapping of the keg, usually the first Tuesday of the month.

First visit, tried many items, all good: jaegerschnitzel, jaegerspaetzle, assorted sausages, sampler appetizers, bier cheese and pretzels, several biers. Service was great (Vanessa), ambience was fun for a Saturday afternoon. 14 yr old enjoyed it as well (without the bier, lol). Brought dessert home (cream puff and chocolate cake) and it was delicious when shared later that evening. Will definitely return.
