Wiener Schnitzel (veal), apple strudel, ohh...
The German cuisine is wonderful. We went for the live music and heard a terrific band called the Luxomatics. Service was slow, but the restaurant was VERY crowded to capacity inside and out. The food was so good that we didn’t mind waiting. A very enjoyable dinner. While we were there a videographer from CHECK PLEASE BAY AREA was shooting video for an up coming show.
Have enjoyed many REAL GERMAN dinners over the years. And will do so again. I always have a reservation, can get busy.
I've been to Speisekammer quite a few times. The food was not as good as usual, BUT the live music absolutely made up for it!
We enjoy coming here because we miss Germany. We have been here several times. The schnitzel was not as good as in times past. (Underdone breading), and I suspect the potatoes are instant. But we'll be back I'm sure.
Great food and draft beers. I like this restaurant and we will be back.
Authentic, great ambiance (sat next to fireplace), great food and excellent beer with great beer serving practices, e.g. proper serving temperature and glasses/mugs! I’ve been here several times and highly recommend it!
Great authentic German food and beers. Fun time !
Best potato pancakes ever!! Authentic German food. One of our favorite spots.
Went with just me and my 3 kids. We all had a great time. Food & service were fantastic!
Great food, drink and atmosphere
This was our third visit, the food was excellent as usual. Good variety of german beers on tap. Service was a little slower than we would have liked, but we enjoyed the company at atmosphere. Despite looking small on the outside, there are three separate dining rooms to break up the crowd of people. Excellent German cuisine. We'll be back, for certain.
One of the few places in the bay area to get German food. Outdoor seating, just like in Germany.
Authentic, terrific food, and generous portions. Mixed salad is an excellent accompaniment to various dishes. Been there many times, never disappointed!
Very good service. Thank you😃😃

Good German food
The food never disappoints here! The appetizers are amazing, the food is authentic and delicous... and plentiful!
It's our first time listening live music here. We enjoyed it.
Happy environment and good food. Very friendly service. It's a great place for adult gathering with great beer. It was a nice family dinner but the kid wasn't being patient.
Sadly, they were out of pretzels, but the spätzle and schnitzel we had were fabulous!
Our table was ready for us when we arrived. The food was outstanding, as always. Our server was very good. Checked on us often, but not intrusive. This is one of our favorite family go to places.
My friend invited me the first time I came for the live music, which I really enjoyed.
I invited my two friends, because they are fans and we ordered light meals, which were
served with friendly servers.
We got a table reservation on line so it was ready when we got there.
We had a great time.
My husband and I enjoy trying any German restaurant we come across. Based on reviews, we were very excited to try Speisekammer!
We started with their Potato Pancakes and Pretzel with Beer Cheese dipping sauce. Both were enjoyable but definitely not the best we’ve eaten in our experiences at other German establishments. The Potato Pancakes were light and crispy but with little seasoning/flavor. The Pretzel was very chewy in a stale sort of way...however the delicious Beer Cheese dipping sauce masked that nicely.
For our entrees, my husband enjoyed the Sauerbraten. It was a decent amount of meat with a luscious gravy and classic sides of Spatzle and Red Cabbage. Both sides were mediocre. I ordered their baked Spatzle (think of a German take on Mac N Cheese.) They used rich and decadent cheeses and came nice and hot. I was given the option to add ham or bacon for an additional charge and I chose ham. Nice and necessary addition! Also for an additional charge, you can have their side salad - I highly recommend AGAINST this...chopped lettuce, pickled veggies all drenched in what tasted like the pickling vinegar. Waste.
Drinks. Although they had many options for many patrons (children, non alcoholic, wine, beer, cocktails...) we were so disappointed in the small amount of German beers on tap. Needless to say, my husband had soda and I tried a nice light Austrian wight wine.
Staff. Very friendly, attentive and informative! They gave us a beautiful cozy table at their romantic fireplace. Beautiful!
Wonderful good again tonight. Both had Bratwurst dinner with sauerkraut and mashers.
We came here for a weeknight dinner and had a great time! Excellent food and drinks, and friendly, attentive service.
We love this restaurant....have never had a bad meal...great neighborhood gem.
It was great!! Food was outstanding, the service perfect!! I highly recommend this place!!
Came to listen to the band and enjoy a good meal!
We love Speisekammer! Great service, food and drinks.
Love the ambience like a European pub or bar, with a collection of steins on the wall and other decorations. Food is good, with good service. What attracted us was the live music Friday and Saturday nights. There are two rooms, one with cozy booths, another with tables, and the garden outside. Loved the roasted butternut squash. Beer is delicious!
Great for family
Noise level was okay because we asked for a quiet table but much of the restaurant was quite loud. The food was uniformly delicious and we will be back!
We had a great first experience at Speisekammer. We just heard about it this week and went right away because we had been looking for a good German restaurant. With Speisekammer, we found it. All of our dishes were excellent.
Enjoyed a lovely post-holiday dinner with friends! They were very accommodating with our 3 kiddos and their varied needs/requests.
Late Saturday lunch. Even though the menu was shortened, it was perfect for trying new dishes and sharing a meal. The fish platter was exceptional. The pretzel with cheese sauce was a hit. Of course the beer selection is what it should be in a German restaurant....love the black beer. Always a great place. Highly recommend .
We have been coming here for quite a while and just love the food, ambience and great staff! Everyone is very friendly and professional, and it is so great to have them always come by to be sure we are never out of water or ask if there is anything else we need. (It is nice to come to a restaurant where a customer doesn't have to ask for these small things). Our favorite dishes are the Potato Soup, the Pork Wienerschnitzel, Sauerbraten and Bratwurst entrees, and their roasted potatoes with bacon bits. Even their bread and the buttery concoction they serve is delicious. The desserts are good too, especially when the dessert chef whips up the delicious toffee cream brulee. We have never been disappointed at this restaurant and the prices are very reasonable too! It will continue to be one of our favorites. The only negative thing is that sometimes parking can be a problem, especially during Fridays and Saturday evenings.
Have been here several times and love the food, beer and service. Great place!
Solid, very authentic German food at reasonable prices. Casual, friendly service. Definitely going on our rotation.
A little taste of Europe in Alameda. Always busy but the food is great! The place always has a good vibe...a little noisy but a fun spot.
The cozyest spot in town.
