The food was great, and the beer was quite flavorful. Mixed drinks were just ok, and the speed of service left much to be desired. I would still highly recommend it for large outings and special events, though.
The food was good, some really good other bits less so. I loved the fried artichoke hearts but my friend got two inedible fuzzy ones in a row! Appetizers took an age but they apologised and assured the mains would be quicker, and they were. The beer was great, the ambiance was pleasant and everybody was happy by the end so that's why the overall rating of very good but less than perfect. I've had a better patty melt but Sudwerk felt really nice. You choose. I will go back happily
We went to Sudwerk for our son's graduation party. We had several family members from out of town, and I think it was a huge success. The food was very good, large portions, and came to our table in a reasonable amount of time.
I was disappointed. I've enjoyed going here before. The service was very slow. My food was cold.
The service was pretty awful. The food was just "meh" (even for typical bar food). I made the mistake coming back once — I won't make that mistake again.
This is our third time having a business get together here. Food is ok for a brewery. Service seems to consistently slow, even when not busy as we usually get here at 515pm. With that being known, order drinks and appetizer's ahead of time. We usually order a couple baskets of fries to get things started. Burgers and Pizzas are solid choices.
Service was very disappointing. Not up to the usual prompt service.
We've been here before. Good place to eat, mostly sandwiches, salads, and soups. Oh did I mention that they have beer? The beers were excellent but the wine list was weak. But then, it's a beer place! A bit noisy, but not intolerable. We'll certainly go back
Big restaurant and friendly service. Seems like it should be better than it was.
Grilled salmon was overdone. Server was very nice about it though, and replaced it immediately with a much better piece.
House salad was sub par, and dripping in an unappealing dressing.
Crab cakes mushy, without the nice grilled effect that one hopes for.
It's a brew pub. Sampled a beer flight, which was decent. It's all about the pilsners and lagers here, not about the ales.
There were three of us for lunch....we all loved the food and the wonderful service! Very attentive! And the salads were the best ever! We will be back for sure! Thanks so much for a nice afternoon!
Six of us, two had patty melts which were goid. One person had the Reuben and said meat was tough. Another ordered brushetta, we all tried it, way too spicy. My pot roast sandwich was just ok. Sorry. Would not go back to eat except maybe a burger. Beer was great!!
after trying to book reservation online using OpenTable, the booking ostensibly stopped due to our trying to do the booking within 2 hours of the planned dinner time (that is what a notice indicated). Only by dumb luck did I check my email looking for an unrelated email from a relative. Upon checking, I saw an email indicating that our reservation for 5 had been approved, as requested online.
Suffice it to say that had I not seen this, the group was heading to our plan B.
My friend is from Munich so we had to have a German beer experience. We were passing by on our way to Sacramento and we stopped in here based on yelp. Can't tell you how great this place is. I'm not normally a beer drinker myself preferring red wine but when I had a Hefe Weizen I actually had a second mug. It was delicious with a slice of lemon. The pizza was awesome and the burger was cooked to perfection! I highly recommend this place
Food was good, but the service was very slow.
From the time we were seated until our food was served was one and a half hours. No explanation and the restaurant was two thirds empty. We sat outside because it was noisy inside. The weather was perfect, all was fine except the service was non-existent. We finally left to get dessert elsewhere. I would not go back. It's not the good German menu and good service I remembered.
We met for a graduation party with out of town guests. It was a wonderful experience for all of us! Appetizers came quickly - fried calamari especially light and tasty. The most amazing imported cider! Beer on tap has such a wide selection, everyone was happy! Burgers cooked perfectly. A grand time was had by all. Thanks Sudwerk!
Beer was great, service was great, burger not so great. Meat was over cooked. We've enjoyed the Folsom location a few times and find it more pleasing.
The food was amazing. Lots of flavor and good portions. The service was good at first than it got slow. I waited for my waiter for 15 to 20 min just to ask for a refill and ask for napkins. Also I felt rushed brought my check too early I wasn't even done with ordering dessert. Overall food was great but they can use improvement on their customer service.
Worth a try but we were looking for something cozier. Would be a great place for Monday night football I suspect.
We were a group of eight and Angela, our server, handled this number with aplomb. The food was good - not great - and was up to our expectations. We'll be back!
