We had a great experience. When I was not happy with my entree, the server offered to replace it with something else. I did so and the replacement dish was excellent. The beer was very good as well.
We will absolutely go back.

Great German food and there is something on the menu for everyone. The beer was delicious also. It was a little loud (poor acoustics/sound proofing?) and was hard to hear our table conversation. Overall I would definitely recommend it and we will be back when we’re in the mood for German food or some good beer. :)

The menu was very interesting and it had lots of choices, food-wise and price-wise as well. The food was very good -- flavorful and good as leftovers.Yes, I took the rest of my dinner home. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly - checked in but in a good way. I loved that I could taste a couple of the beers before I ordered and my selection was very good. I have already told my co-workers about Liter House and will definitely go back!

Food was excellent - everything was so fresh and cooked perfectly. Our server was awesome - explained the menu and quickly answered any questions we had. She did not rush us at all. It was like we were her only customers!

Great choice for Devour Indy Summer 2019. Cioppino and Bratwurst platter were entreé choices, with pretze appetizerl and bread pudding dessert. Sahm's restaurants have never disappointed me for food selection and value. 100% satisfaction!

They were out of the entree my wife wanted, which was the main reason we went after a preview of their menu. Beer was not cold. My entree of bratwurst was below average. Service was also below average. Other "German" style restaurants in town are much better, see Rathskeller. I wanted to like it but will probably not go back.

We celebrated a birthday there. We were in the dining area as we had a toddler with us. The pretzel appetizer was wonderful. I had the CHEESY VEG SPAETZLE. This was very cheesy and just what I wanted. I also tried the Tomato and Peach salad. Sounded weird at first but the taste was great. This is a big salad so I would suggest you share this creation. OMG the beer mugs are HUGE. There was a very good selection of beer for all that were at our table. We have already started planning our next trip.
We could smell the barbeque in the back and we plan on going for this next time. Highly recommend!!!

One of our favorite items on the menu was the chicken schnitzel...and we were devastated to find it was no longer available. As we don't eat pork products, the number of options available to us, without modifications, is now much more limited. Sad to say, we won't be back unless there is menu change to add non--pork items back.

The food was very good, but according to one of my German friends dining with me, not very authentic. Service was good. The only big negative is the parking, it is very limited, so get there early and plan on parking on a nearby street. Note that this review is for the Liter House, not Half Liter, although the parking situation is still the same.

We ate here for a group family dinner (11 people and a baby). We could all hear each other, and the food was incredible. Don’t be deterred by unusual choices on the menu - everything is delicious. The pretzels are the best we have had anywhere.

I would, but I can’t tell how disappointed we were with the change in menus. The food we had was excellent-absolutely no complaints there. Everyone was pleased w the taste. But we brought family who live in Germany and they had been so looking forward to the wonderful big menu of German Foods you had, and it has been significantly pared back. The spaetzle was very tasty- but it was more of a risotto. The former menu was unique.

My wife and I shared a plate of the Bratwurst - there were two good sized ones. I was disappointed that there was no sauerkraut included. Brats with kraut is like cereal with milk, a no brainer. Also, we wanted to eat ours on a bun, like we usually do at home or at the State Fair. We had to ask for bread separately.
It all tasted good, just not quite what we were expecting. The beer was very good, I might add.

Food was great this time, our waitress could’ve been a little less annoyed I guess. Not sure what her issue was but it made for a sort of uncomfortable experience. We thought we could mix Half Liter with Liter House for food but apparently not. Also LH has a bad shipment of chicken so there was NO chicken dishes available. I think that should’ve been made apparent before we were even sat. We made do with portobella dishes and they were both superb but my husband ordered HL to go.
Also she made it a point to tell us several times that Warhead beer is not available anymore, and never will be again,not that I care about the beer, it was her overbearing tone. We didn’t even ask for beer. Idk maybe that’s just her way of explaining things but as a customer it was very off putting. In hindsight, we should’ve just gone to HL. I’m wondering why LH wasn’t very full but HL was packed. Better service maybe? Not sure but that’s where we’ll go next time. If we want German cuisine we’ll just order it to go.

We went to Liter House in the early afternoon. Half Liter was much busier and louder. We had a voucher for Liter House, otherwise we probably would have went to Half Liter instead. That being said, the food was delicious. I have the poutine, and it was the largest serving of poutine I've ever had!

Food and drinks were great. I think the server might have been having a bad day or something. We felt a bit like were we an inconvenience to her but we brushed it off and had a nice time regardless.

Vegan options were disappointing.
Side dishes not marked vegan. Stew was weak broth, mediocre. Kale amount skimpy. Expected more from Chef driven restaurant. Out of pretzels. Not many choices of sour beers. Noisy take-down of tables next to us. Not enough healthy choices.
