Loved their brunch. Doener and schnitzel were our choices. Fast service. Quiet and kid friendly.
TV blaring. Asked twice to turn down the volume. No luck. Waiter was excellent. Food was pretty bad. But the beer and the pretzels were amazing!
Great experience on Valentine’s Day for my friends birthday. Wasn’t overly romantic filled except the heat shaped giant pretzels which were so amazing, we got two!
It was Valentine's Day and we showed up a bit early. Even though we had a reservation we were sat by the front door which was cold particularly in view of the cold weather and for my wife who has fibromyalgia. Food was OK but not really German but someone's variation. Beer and schnapps were very good.
The food was mediocre. The server was fun but she took forever to come around. We were there 2 hours and 1 minute and a lot of that time was just waiting for the server to come back. I definitely won’t be back.
Very short pour on wine, while not cheap. Food is bland. Everything tastes the same. Huge hall, not intimate. Lots of little kids screaming. Parking is not good.
First off, I made a reservation for a table of 8. They are known for large tables, so I figured it would be no problem since they took the reservation. When we got there, we had two tables of 4 next to each other. This is NOT a table for 8. We ended up only being able to talk to our friends at our own table, as you couldn’t hear the conversations at the table next to us.
Thankfully the food was good as the service was TERRIBLE. It took 3 hours for a meal that should have taken 2, at the most. We ended up bussing our own table, since we were seated next to it. Server very inattentive and then got our bills wrong. But service was included, so he didn’t care.
Beer, sausages and mustard, and bocce ball - what else could you want?
German food was very good, beer was great, service was TERRIBLE. Wait staff is immature and careless and does not care about serving patrons.
With the exception of a very loud TV tuned to a Thursday night football game that I don't think anyone was watching, we enjoyed our first visit here very much. Food was good, great beer, outstanding service. But turn down the TV!
Decent German food with a good beer selection with a rustic ambiance. Even the kale salad was good.
Good food, nice service, excellent beer.
The food here is always good, haven't ordered anything on the menu that I don't like. The staff is friendly, and the beers are extra cold. The atmosphere is fun, but it does get really crowded on weekends so plan accordingly (reservations on opentable?).
Fantastic pretzels! Great beer!!! We enjoyed the kaesespaetzle and a vegetarian sausage plate. Definitely gong back sometime soon.
We went to the Rhein Hause to celebrate Oktoberfest.
Disappointing. Nice ambiance but beer flat. Pretzel good but other food mediocre.
Authentic, great-tasting food! I'd return there anytime.
We really enjoyed our food and the service was very good. I would describe the fare as a good “take” on German food. I tried the Jaegerschnitzel. The take? It was made with beef! Interesting and delicious. My wife’s Pork Schnitzel was good, leaning more toward a picatta. Our next dining partner’s sausage plate was excellent.
The reason we didn’t rate the place higher? The Sunday football games playing on the big screen TVs were so loud it hurt. Turn it down a decibel or two fellas!
Was a fun, unique place to visit.
Great food fast service. Very friendly staff. We love playing boci ball.
The food was mediocre at best and over priced for the value. We love to treat ourselves to fine German food when possible and it was our first time in Seattle. There were more than a few choices for German food. Unfortunately we were disappointed with our choice.
Great beer. Fantastic brats (except NOT the veggie brat). Wonderful atmosphere. Be sure to order the huge pretzel!
Our small group had lunch there recently. It was quite compared to what I've heard it can be. The place has a great atmosphere and plenty of bar area. The food was good and the service was very good with nice people. Service may be different on a crowded Friday night, but that won't be me. The bocce courts add a great social time, but if you are a "serious" bocce player who knows and plays international rules, this is not the place. Courts are ~ 45'L x 7'W which is half the length and near half the width of a regulation court. The courts are enough to have fun with friends and drink. Prost!
With an excellent selection of beers, dark moldings and benches, and a high ceiling, there's a feeling of being in a German beer hall. The pretzels and sausages are all homemade but I found the bratwurst to be milder than I would in Germany. What makes this place different is the presence of five bocce courts, which are right in the middle of the building and rentable by the hour.
Our waitress, although just finishing her training, was competent and very friendly. She was willing to substitute German potato salad for the standard mashed potatoes and allowed us to add a second kind of sausage to our plate for five dollars. The best item on the menu, in our opinion, is the warm German chocolate cake with ice cream and embedded coconut flakes. Maybe the apple strudel is better but it wasn't available.
Because the high ceilinged hall requires a lot of heating, temperature is definitely on the cooll side so, if you come in the winter be dressed for it. We think this place would be best enjoyed on a warm summer evening with a lot of friends.
I've dined at Rhein Haus a few times when I've been in Seattle on business and it has become one of my favorite places in the city. Great German food and beer in a lively atmosphere.
Best sausages in town at a very reasonable price. Order a big plate, and share it with your partner
You may still have to ask for a doggy bag. Good list of beers as well
Great food and beer, we stopped by before the U2 concert and parked our car nearby then uber-ed to the Century Link - best idea instead of parking at the Stadium. Staff were friendly, quick to serve us and food was hot and delicious - selection of sliders, spetzle, curried brats and decadent chocolate cake! We were out in a timely manner, only wish we had had more time to enjoy a game of Bocce!
Liked it a lot. Great place and love to come again.
The restaurant was quite cold and the service was inattentive.
Great spot for lunch! We loved the house made pretzels, large beer selection, and playing bocce ball.
It was a sunny Tues. evening so we started outside with happy hour. Nice fun causal atmosphere. Great service, amazing pretzels!
Moved inside for dinner. Ordered the platter with a great selection of food to try. It fed 3 people. I had the brat wrapped in bacon, yum! To finish it off the German chocolate cake is just a perfect ending!
The food was delicious, large portions and vey reasonably priced.
Located in the heart of Seattle, near Seattle University, Rhein Haus offers a unique change from the more famous seafood restaurants along the Waterfront. Service is great, atmosphere is tremendous and there are even some boccie lanes. This is not a Geman Gasthaus so there are some liberties with the menu, but nonetheless Rhein Haus will meet your family or business dining needs in a one of kind setting.
Delicious German food, as good as I've ever had! Went with a group of 7 and everyone was very happy with their food. My aunt said she got the best bloody mary she's ever had (and she's tried many in her lifetime). Would highly recommend!
I came to celebrate my 35th birthday. We sat in the balcony directly above the entrance. Our server was gracious and humorous. He attended to our needs, but wasn't intrusive, and felt like a genuinely caring person. The bocce lanes were below us, and there was a corporate event in the space. It was a bit intrusive, as one of their party was shouting strange things at random intervals in a most annoying cartoon voice, but this is more reflective of the lack of couth on their part, not the fault of Rhein House.
The menu is overly expansive, and is difficult to parse information from. It needs to be a bit narrower. Combine the drinks menu with the food menu, so there are less things taking up table space.
I will definitely be making happy hour arrangements here again, and now that I understand how the bocce courts work, I will plan ahead. I think that I would be the perfect daytime guest for Rhein House, but I fear that the evenings will be too chaotic and collegiate for my taste.
Homemade kielbasa, German draft beer ,all good!! A beer hall in Capitol Hill Seattle ,tv's ,bocce ball a playground.
Great German food including currywurst, the most popular street food in Germany. Good German root beer, unique setting and bocce ball.
Delicious schnitzel and potato salad. Great value. Decor is both elegant and rustic. It is slightly noisy here, and it has sports screens. I'd happily return for dinner, and I look forward to trying brunch.
First time we've ever been to Rhein Haus and will definitely go back. We had a $75 gift card and planned on dinner, but happened to hit Happy Hour and had plenty of food and two drinks; plus we still have enough money to go a second time. There are several areas where guests can play boccie ball. We didn't play this time, but will definitely do that the next time.
We met a friend here for an early dinner and lucked upon happy hour prices. The atmosphere is energetic but enjoyable. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were delicious.
