Enjoyed our time at Paulaner Brauhaus. Food and beer was excellent. Service was very slow because it appeared that there was only one waitress for the restaurant and many runners.

S super German flood. Didn't like live of the sausages but other than that a plus.

Solid adaptation of German cuisine for an American bar scene. Pleasantly surprised a kids menu was offered. Beer was the highlight and primary reason I would return sans kids. Nice booths for small parties but best use for this place is for large groups looking for a spot for a spirited dinner or night out for casual drinks.

Excellent food and beer! Nice menu, including many selections besides the typical beer garden items. Excellent smoked trout and pretzel appetizers and I love the cod dish. A must try!

They were not prepared for the crowd that showed up to watch a soccer game. The staff was totally overwhelmed. I won't hold it against them because I've been several times, but they need to re-evaluate how many employees they have working during any soccer finals.

we came on a quiet, grey sunday afternoon to grab a drink and snack. it was almost empty but has a great atmosphere that would clearly be a fun place when there's a sports event or it's more crowded. most significant to me was that i am currently on crutches and the staff saw when i stood up to use the restroom, which is downstairs. the maitre d' promptly caught up with me and escorted me to the staff restroom in order to avoid the stairs. greatly appreciated!! sometimes when a restaurant is quiet, the service is worse as the staff slacks off, but here, their attention never faltered. we enjoyed the service, atmosphere, and food - we'll all be back :)

The Sauerbraten was ok, only the Spätzle were too moist.
The service was outstanding as were the beers, both the Hefeweizen as also the Salvator.

I was a little disappointed. I was looking for an authentic German Biergarten. While the food was very good, the atmosphere was a little phony to me. The music was modern and trendy (rap and pop) as opposed to cultural themed music. While it was a nice restaurant, and decorated "Germanish", it wasn't exactly what I was looking for. What salvaged the evening for me is that the service was excellent, and the food was very tasty. It depends on what you're looking for. So if you want a lot of German influence, I don't think this is it.
