Food was good. Kitchen seemed overwhelmed and wait was longer than it should have been. Wasn’t much of a problem since we weren’t in a rush, but I would avoid if you need to be somewhere at a certain time.
Delicious and unique food for a great value. Cute location and great service! Lots of authentic dishes - Schnitzel was spot on and Rouladen was amazing! Indoor and outdoor seating available - outdoor dining area was very nice.
We really enjoy The Bier Garden - even though it is an hour drive each way! Only authentic German food I know of in the area. Only slight draw back were the flies outside! Nothing they can do about - we wanted to be outside - and they were very accommodating
Food is always outstanding!! Our server was very kind but it took far too long to get the food. It was delicious as always but it wasn’t busy enough to warrant such a wait. Wait aside, I don’t believe you can order a bad dish from the menu. :)
Love the Bier Garden! Great place, food and beer!
Authentic German food and Beer. A most stop every trip to the area.
The waitress was excellent,but the kitchen staff was short staffed. The food took way too long.
Great food and fantastic beer selection. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menus both food and beer. Be sure to visit the gift shop.
It was as quant and quite as I remembered.
The fried mushrooms and The lentil soup was amazing!
Always awesome food! Service was slow this time. Somewhat out of the ordinary. My wife was born and raised in Munich area. This is one of a very few German restaurants she’ll go to. Try the Aventinus beer! The best by far
The food was amazing, and our server was excellent!
Really cool place! Awesome food and sitting on the outside patio around 5:30 on a gorgeous day just made the whole e patience worth it. The food was really great and everything we had was phenomenal. Can’t say enough about it. I had the schnitzel and my coworker had the pot roast. We had sides of saurkraut, purple cabbage, spaetzle and two other sides and nothing was left. Awesome flavors and food was cooked as it should have been. Awesome job to the cooks as well!
Authentic, great tasting German cuisine.
Great food. Great beer! We always enjoy our experience at the Bier Garden. The authentic German food is wonderful...takes me back to mother's cooking. Serving staff is helpful interpreting the massive beer list. The ambiance is great, too.
Really enjoyed our dinner; I had the Schweine Schnitzel and it was excellent; my son had some bratwurst and the wife had Rouladen. All were great, and for dessert we shared a German Chocokate cake (by 7 PM they had already run out of Black Forest Cake) a Apfel Strudel (not sure is the spelling was like that on purpose or not). My son and I both had some different beers on tap, they were great! Would recommend to everybody!
Excellent food and service. There was a party happening which made it a bit noisy, but once the party left, it was perfect.
We lived in Germany for ten years. Sorry this was not good German food. My husband loved the beer that was it. The käsespätzle was horrible. We never had bad German food in Germany. But this was sooooo bad.
Our server was friendly and attentive; the Bex Riesling was so good; the red cabbage is to die for; the rouladen is second to none; and my son tried new food--a wonderful evening!
Wonderful German food...the beer selection is outstanding.
Normally love the Bier Garden, but something was off this time. Wife got the schweine schnitzel, with potato salad and cucumber salad, and that was delicious as usual. I got the gulasch with spätzle, and this is where it went off the rails. The spätzle flavor was bland and the portion of gulasch was very small. I'll continue to eat here, and will especially enjoy the very large selection of beer.
My friends and i will definitely be coming back for lunch dates. this place had a great vibe, amazing food, and was overall a really great place to choose for my prom dinner. affordable and just a great place. the german cheesecake is so delicious !
Our server Megan was great with a large group of people. The table was ready in advance and we enjoyed a very pleasant and comfortable meal.
Not like it used to be, great service and beverages, but a downcheck on the quality of the food particularly the jagerschnitzel which was "average" at best.
There were 8 in our group and we all agreed that we ejoyed the charm of the restaurant as well as the food. It was a perfect evening for eating outdoors.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner beers from the tap and dessert. Service was fast and curtious and we love the atmosphere of the Bier Garden. We bring OOT guests often.
We had a wonderful experience. Our group of 7 was seated promptly and given excellent service. Highly recommend!
My wife and I date here once a month. Always a favorite to try new beer and the German food
Went to celebrate my birthday. Great food and service.
Reasonable schnitzel, potato salad, and cabbage- presentation could have been a bit better. Home style meal.
Great German food! Loved it but have to say it's very noisy too so go with that in mind and you won't be disappointed.
Great food, wonderful staff. I always enjoy going there and reliving my many years of living in Germany.
No complaints. The food tasted great and the portion sizes were also great. Great experience.
Great food and an amazingly large list of beers. Went on a Tuesday and it was pretty quiet.
We absolutely loved The Bier Garden! My husband had wanted to find a German restaurant in the area but hadn't been able to find one until I found The Bier Garden on OpenTable. A nice and cozy and little place in downtown Portsmouth with great food and great service. Not really knowing much about German food, I read up on the menu before we got there. We both ordered the Sweiner Schintzel with the fried potatoes. Too much food for me though! I had enough for lunch yesterday! The service was great, too! The young lady was very knowledgeable about the menu.
Every February we drive 3 hours to The Beir Garden to celebrate our German heritage friend’s birthday. He says it is the best German food around and we have to agree. See you next February! Your Maryland friends love The ambience too!
Great place for a dinner date with the significant other
Had the best time celebrating our anniversary here the other night. It’s always been a favorite of my family so I was very excited to introduce my boyfriend to it. The service was fantastic and the food(as always) was amazing! He also loved everything and insisted we come back very soon.
Have loved this place for many years! Always friendly staff.
Always great when we go there for dinner and drinks. The meal, the beer were excellent. I recommend
it to anyone looking for good meal, drinks and atmosphere.
