Great beer selection, great brats and fries! Service is also great - they are attentive without being overbearing. Great spot to hang out.

The food was okay.
The staff had a major overreaction when a man was asking outdoor tables for money. They called the cops even though the guy walked away when asked.

Please don’t call the police on Black people.

Thanks Pete. We do not tolerate racism in any form, and are compassionate and friendly within our limits. The man was hissing racial slurs at some Asian patrons, stealing beers off tables, issuing death threats and flashing his genitals. He was slapping people as they exited Detour (the establishment across the street), shadow-boxing people, and he charged and threatened our manager and servers. He was arrested under an outstanding warrant by four officers. Race had nothing to do with it.

Really impressed by the level of personal service. Reached out to the restaurant before our visit with some menu questions and received a very helpful reply. Received a call on the day of our reservation to confirm and talk about seating options. It was clear that Willkommen was invested in making sure our experience was positive, even on a busy holiday evening. Excellent variety of sausages served in good portions. Everything was delicious but the standouts were the spaetzle (creamy and enough to share), hot pretzels (buttery and soft) and the bratwurst and knockwurst. There were so many Black Hammer Brewing craft beers on tap -- we are already planning to go back to try some more!

With the recent opening of the state and city, reservations are a must. The place is lovely because of the quality of food and beer. The only thing is that there was just one young lady who was both hostess and server and person who took down your order. She was amazing, I felt so bad for her because she was a one woman team but she executed the best she could. There was a crowd of people outside and that will tell you how good it is and that you need to make a reservation! Please tip well, the people who work there are great and are trying the best to accommodate the crowds.

Food & service were just OK. Beer was great. Had reservations for outdoor seating but they didn’t bother to set up any heaters so we had to eat inside because it was so cold.

The staff was friendly and helpful. I had the duo with the nuremberger bratwurst and smoked hot beer sausage and a hefeweizen. It was delicious. My friend had the green with the nuremberger, which he liked. The table next to us ordered the schnitzel with a side of sausage that looked really appetizing. Next time. Overall, nice ambience, good food, good value and nice staff.

This was my first experience dining at Willokemmen since February 2020. Keep in mind it was the first and only time I had eaten outside there . The situation with the homeless population makes it a challenge and why the ambiance was rated at just a mid level. The staff all get very high marks, and food is great. Next time I might try being seated on the Sanchez Street side .

They are the perfect place to have outdoor seating - and we LOVED our little outdoor nook. Their partitians protected us from the wind and the privacy protected others from our loud toddlers and preschoolers. It was also a relief to be able to book a table in advance. With kids we are not going to take our chances on walk-ins. We will def be back for the inventive beer, great food and super relaxed atmosphere. Dankeschoen, Willkommen!

We sat outside which was not a good idea as it was cold and windy, despite the sun. When it's a hot sunny day, you'll love it outside! The food was great, we had a variety of sausages and the pancakes. The pretzel bread was a bit too salty and the obatzda cheese a little too fatty but otherwise tasted good. The beer selection was also inspired. Especially enjoyed the Midnight Luau, a pineapple stout; Starshine (Trappist Singel); and Sparkle Pony, a Belgian Blonde. Would love to come back for more delicious beer and sausages!

Things seemed a little frantic/scrambled. Also reserved an outdoor seat but a walk in just before us got it so we sat inside. Service was spotty but perhaps because there wasn’t enough help. The food was amazing though!

It really felt like they were not interested in serving us or having us dine with them. We arrived early and all of the outdoor dining spaces were open. Instead of moving our reservation earlier, they made us wait the half an hour. Understandable but ALL of those tables remained open even up to our reservation and beyond. Once we were seated, a half an hour later, the service was fine and food came quickly but it was pretty annoying that they wouldn’t seat us despite having a completely open patio. The food was OK. I was really happy that they had a gluten-free beer and their food was OK. I’ll come back again but I’ll definitely come exactly at my reservation time because it doesn’t seem like the house staff is very accommodating at all.

Really nice brunch option to enjoy with friends. I would like to see glass pitchers vs the plastic ones so the beer stays colder. However, the workaround for that is to order glasses vs pitchers ;)
