Most tasteless Weisswurst ever ( I am from Munich and travel there frequently). The Pretzel looked like the real thing but the texture - OMG, rubber. You can buy better ones in many grocery stores. BTW, the mustard was of an absolutely poor quality and there is no excuse for that. My German lunch partner had the Schweinebraten (pork roast) and she liked it, so maybe if I ever were to go back I would try that.,
Delicious German fare as usual—never disappoints!
A friendly, welcoming atmosphere, and on this night a fabulous trio of country and surf music with an strong, local following! Really fun evening !
Wonderful service and authentic German food. I will be back. Its worth a 30 min drive.
Excellent in every way.
Always good food and excellent service. Lively, energetic patrons. Authentic German restaurant atmosphere
I’ve been there once with my girlfriend and I really enjoyed the food and beer. So I decided to take my boyfriend there and he really loved the food. I ordered the tri tip and he had the stuffed cabbage rolls. Both entrees were delicious. They also have a great selection on German beer. He’s really not into beer, but he had tried the one I ordered and really liked it.
I would recommend making reservations. They get really packed on the weekends. We are definitely going back to try the other dishes.
Good German food. My family and I have dined here a number of times. Sometimes they are very busy and other times it’s a slow night. We’ve always enjoyed eating here.
Great food but a lot of noise from nearby tables
We love the band that played, The Americano Social Club.
Our seating request always gets granted. The food is authentic, great menu both food and drinks. Service is excellent, timely, attentive.
We were celebrating our 31st anniversary and the waiter surprised us with strudel and ice cream. Although we had told him we were too full for dessert, we had no problem finishing it. Very tasty!
Awesome 😁, love this place for everything!
We are never disappointed with Speisekammer. Whether we're there with friends or just family we completely enjoy ourselves. The wait staff always remember us and we are always free to take our time and enjoy the meal.
Always a great stop for comfort food!
we love this place - it’s great for all ages from tattooed hipsters to local fogies like us.
but we’d never been seated in the fireplace room... which was cozier and quieter than the other sections.
the food was absolutely fabulous and mom had a terrific 80th birthday.
highly recommend it!
Always a great time to be had here with incredible German food and beer. This restaurant is what lured us to Alameda to lead us to then buy property here.
Had a nice time with my friends but my food took an hour to get to me.
This is an all around good place to eat and drink. They have a tremendous variety of great German and American beers and excellent cocktails. The food is classic German, but has gotten lighter since Speisekammer first opened. The servers are also happy to split meals for you. This can be an inexpensive place to eat for that reason. We split a pork shank and each of us had plenty to eat and the check was light.
Had a wonderful meal with my mother and great friends. Shared all plates and all was delicious.
Very good food, great music, great service! Will come again.
Took my wife here for a special date night, what an awesome experience! This place checks all the boxes for us, most importantly being extremely celiac friendly (GF)!
Our server was so conscientious, knowledgeable and friendly about making sure the GF options were explained. She took great care not to cross contaminate and informed the kitchen staff regarding our restrictions as well.
The vibe was fun and the food was delicious and interesting! Who knew German food could be so gluten free friendly?
Live music Friday and I think Saturday nights. The bar area seemed full of friendly people enjoying eachother and the music.
5 Stars for sure! If you need to eat GF, this is a must try in the bay area!
It was our anniversary. A nice clean restaurant with a good musical combo. Love German food. Server was very nice to us.
This place is the best! Service is always awesome, staff is always so friendly and accommodating. Good place for good food and a good time with family and friends!!
Always a great meal at Speisekammer. The pretzel is always fresh and the schnitzel is a reliable great.
What’s not to like about Speisekammer? We’ve been dining here since shortly after they opened. They’ve only gotten better and better. It has a nice neighborhood vibe, and the food is always outstanding. Oh, did I mention the beer?
Love love this place! Been coming regularly now for about 4 months, never a miss only good food and good beer! Had the smoked pork shoulder last 2 visits wow! Love that they mix up the menu. Great food, go now! 😜
Good food, potatoes with weinerschmitzel were the best
Restaurant management/employees should ensure the restaurant atmosphere is enjoyed by all with zero tolerance from other customers drunk and yelling in the restaurant. Oct 9, 2018, was a big group seated in the back of the restaurant and most of the were literally yelling in the restaurant even when they were seated right next to each other. Most of them were drunk and obnoxious and disrespectful to others in the restaurant. Management can refuse customers that are drunk in any public establishments and or ask them to keep in it down or be removed from the restaurant. We won’t be coming back to this place nor will we even recommend it. Our server provided great service and kept apologizing for the loud abnoxious group.
Authentic, delicious, large portions,great service, really great.
After living in Southern Bavaria for three years, this is the best German food we have found since returning to California. They serve traditional gasthaus fare with an unbelievable selection of beer, both on tap and in bottle. Further, the restaurant is furnished with authentic furniture, from the wood tables to the shranks that litter the little alcoves nooks in the restaurant. If you like central European cuisine and miss echte Deutsche Bier, this is the place for you.
I go to this Place once or twice every two months and generally have excellent experience. Unfortunately this time the service is not what I am accustomed to at this amazing place. Sometimes it appeared that the waitress forgot all about us being at the table. We got the one bottle of water is that was the only drinks that we were going to have it got empty and wasn't replaced with a full lunch service. The food was excellent as usual but this deserves a lower than five star because of the lack of attention in less than Stellar service on this visit this is the first time I have been disappointed in my dining g experience.
This is our go to restaurant,,,our family loves it.
Speisekammer is our standard for genuine German food outside of Germany. We say "it's good, but it's not Speisekammer!"
Love this place and have been here multiple times. Only drawback is the noise level. Been here a few times with other friends and family and each occasion the noise level was too loud. It's the biggest complaint I get from them. The food is the best in terms of authentic german cuisine in a cute setting but the noise level is unfortunately enough to discourage me from taking others here. May just have to settle for just me and my husband.
Was looking for a great place to have a business dinner in Alameda that could accommodate the size of my party. Service was great, food was great, atmosphere was spot on for Oktoberfest, my guests had a great time and enjoyed the selection of beers and food! A Hidden Gem! Thank you!
This is a fabulous place for great German food & beer. The noise level is what keeps me away but I suppose that's a sign people are having a good time!!
We enjoy Speisekammer. It's not "5-star" like Chez Panisse -- but it is outstanding for what it is -- a wonderful neighborhood eatery. Great (and distinctive) food, wonderful beer, relaxed setting. I always look forward to our next visit.
Our waitress Hannah treated us old guys special and made us bowl that way too!
Very good food. Great service. Great selection of German beer. Will be going again.
We've been fans of Mitch Polzak and the Royal Deuces for awhile, we went mainly to see them. Very entertaining, they play there every first Friday, authentic rockabilly, truck drivin' songs and old-school country! Stuff you don't hear on the radio anymore and probably won't ever again. The food was delicious and authentic, my only issue was after we ate, there's no area for folks to sit or even stand and hear the band, without getting another table, after we had already eaten...the bar was packed all night. It seemed like we were in the way wherever we stood, I finally went and sat outside, and could still hear and see the band OK. We will definitely go back, but now that we know the scene, we'll try to get a table in the front room where the band is. Oh, and the parking situation is pretty bad, but the neighborhood seems quite safe which is a good thing, because you'll be parking several blocks away and walking.
