Always excellent and accommodating service in a fun atmosphere. Beers were tasty but in a heavily loaded microbrewery city don’t hold a candle to many available options locally. Need some diversity to try. Same with food. Only two specials that were not highlighted or explained by waitstaff and presented with limited description on a piece of paper easily lost on the table amongst menus and beers and app. Hot pretzel was delish as was mustard but the cheese dip was lukewarm and looked very unappealing in its too small cup. Currywurst tasted truly bland and Weisswurst sandwich held a variety of interesting flavors including a delicious homemade rye bread. The sauerkraut side was very flavorful and not overtly tart. Fun place to try.

The food was great, and huge portions. My wife first found currywurst in Berlin and though that served here was as good or better. The food came out a little slowly due to a large part that had ordered just ahead of us, but our server kept us informed and remained attentive.

We enjoyed our dinner, but we had asked for a high chair for our nine month old, and in the 2 hours we were there, we never got one. Luckily he was able to sit up on his own in between two people in a booth. A little awkward for him.

Growing up in Germany, it’s so nice to have this here in Indy!
We started with a small order of kraut fries...awesome!!!
My fiancé and I shared two different items.
The jagerschnitzel was excellent!
The rouladen was so, so. The meat should have been pounded thinner, was very tough.
Only complaint was, our food took a very long time and waitress kept apologizing.
Atmosphere was great as well.
Highly recommend the Duke beer.
We will definitely be back!

Food was great, waiter was good. Love this area of Indy! Only downside is it's really noisy and there's not a quiet area to ask for if you're with older diners or anyone that has a hearing issue. Otherwise - loved it!

This was the second time we have been to Liter House. The food is very good, but I think they could offer a little more variety. Our waiter was wonderful, very efficient and personable. We also appreciate that they take reservations. We will be going back.

It was our first visit, and we were pleased with the ambiance. Not knowing German food, we realized, after seeing some of the dishes going past us, that we should have ordered something else. 3 of us are wine drinkers, and the wine was pricier than what we’re used to paying. Perhaps that is because the specialty is beer? However, our server and all of the employees we came in contact with were super friendly and helpful. We’ll be back and try another dish next time.

Sat night reservation and were seated at that time or before. Staff were awesome! Food was incredibly delicious!! Got tricky figuring out whether to order from Devour special menu or regular menu as meals are slightly different. They made it a smooth process. We will all definitely return and hopefully come for brunch menu as well!

I was with a table of 4 and three of us ate off the Devour Indianapolis menu. We found our food to be above average, but not as good as we recall when we visited in November and again in December. The beer was really good and the wait staff was very attentive--though she did say something about the meal coming up in just a minute and it had to be another 10 minutes before it came. But the restaurant was really busy. We'll definitely be back-for the beer if nothing else. We all agreed the food had taken a step back.

Liter house has a great atmosphere and good beer. However, the food needs work, especially the Pretzel. I suggest that the find some better recipes. May I suggest that you replace that oversized Bavarian stale pretzel thing with whatever the Rathskellar uses. Also, the mustard the Rathskellar uses is better. The Kraut Salat is good and the Bratwurst was OK to good. None of the food was bad, it was just not that great. You may wish to broaden the menu to add some other items, such as a Rueben sandwich, and adding a couple of more traditional entrees such as a steak (or two), and a chicken entree. Although I realize that the profit margins on the Sahm-originated beers are probably greater, I suggest that you add some authentic german beers, such as Spaten Optimater to the beer selections. Just my two cents. Although the food needs help, the place is nice, and everything but the food seems to work well and be top notch.

Better German food than we had most places in Germany. The atmosphere was a little loud and hard to have conversation but there were a lot of people enjoying the last Friday before Christmas break with friends and co-workers. I highly recommend the Bratwurst and the Schnitzel - both very good and authentic.

Our first experience there was a good one. Our only minor issue was that we made reservations but had to wait longer than our reservation time. It just shows how popular the place is! The food was worth the wait! We made our next reservations for a future night while dining.
