    We had a great time. The beer, food and music were wonderful. While it did take a bit to get our service started due to staffing, our server was quite attentive. Our appetizers and main meals were delicious. We will definitely be going back.

    Food was okay and portions were large. We have had better German food from other places. Service was okay but nothing special. Dessert took well over a half hour to be delivered -- clearly was an issue with the kitchen. Overall, a bit disappointed but still okay visit.

    Food was very good with large portions. The jagerschnitzel was good but could use more of the mushroom sauce. The spaetzle was also tasty. The garlic fries were okay, but I would recommend making the spaetzle the side that comes with schnitzel which is more authentic. The room was very noisy and we were seated by a staircase that was busy. Not a great location. The restaurant was busy, but our service was slow even with the number of staff available. I liked the food and beer, but if we go back, we will not sit in the area we did and hopefully will get better service.

    Stay in the bar where things are under control. The restaurant area is like a truck stop. Poor service and piled up plates. Warm drinks and cold meals. Harried waitstaff and some rudeness. Spend your money and time somewhere else.

    Looking for quality German food and a great selection of German beers at reasonable prices? Come to the Village Brau Haus! We particularly liked the Jaegerschnitzel with homemade German potato salad and Hefeweissen beer! If you have an appetite, start with the hubcap-sized pretzel with cheese sauce and 2 kinds of mustard. Aus Geseichnet!

    The main entrees were very tasty. While some of them can be pricey the portions are large and you could split them family style in some cases. Be patient with the staff and understand they are short and it will make your visit more enjoyable.

    TL/DR - Food and staff amazing! Would return I went here with the family last night to celebrate my husband's birthday. I will start by saying the service was fantastic! We had Doug as our server and he was amazing!! With that said, plenty of other people working there also checked on us throughout dinner. All of them were amazing and attentive. There was a young woman, I unfortunately didnt catch her name, that was so sweet. She interacted with my kids, brought them crayons and stuff to color with and would often check to see if we needed anything, even though she wasnt our server. We felt at home here. Now, on the the food. Since there was 6 of us, we got a few things to share and ate family style. We got the pretzel, potato pancakes and fried pickles for an appetizer. All of them were amazing. For our main course, we got the Brauhaus Wurst Platter (OMG SO GOOD) and the Jagerschnitzel. While I didnt care for it, my husband and son really liked it. I lived in Germany for a bit and it just wasnt what I was used to. The Spätzle, potato salad and red cabbage were all delicious, but, I didnt care for the sauerkraut. Again, I think its just because its not what Im used to. In all, I would definitely go back so I can try a few of the other items.

    I've been to this restaurant several times. If anything, the food has gotten better over the past couple of years, although it's still annoying to have an entree like wiener schnitzel paired with French fries, as opposed to something more appropriate and authentic, like warm German potato salad, etc. The tap hefeweizen was Weihenstefaner which is ok, but not nearly as good as other options, such as Paulaner, Franziskaner or (if available) Augustiner. I'd also recommending educating the wait staff a little better. It was annoying hearing wienerschnitzel pronounced by the waiter with an American "w". If you're playing German restaurant, the help ought to know the pronunciation basics. Otherwise, just put "breaded veal cutlet" on the menu and be done with it.
