Food was good. I think the cook was watching too much football and left things in the fryer a little too long. I enjoyed the casual atmosphere and am happy to find a German restaurant that is close.

Great location across from Bethesda Metro. Needless to say a terrific selection of beers as well as great pretzels and sausage. Happy Hour has some nice specials. Establishment was quiet on this visit yet I would chalk it up to a December weeknight. I'm sure the place is vibrant on weekends as well as during warmer months or special occasions.

On the plus side, my wife's mussels were good, and she enjoyed her mixed drink. My experience wasn't as good: forgettable sausages and a dissatisfying beer experience. I ordered the Monk's sour, which is a favorite and fairly moderate in cost compared to other Belgian options. For $11 for 0.3 liters, I got a small glass which later proved to be marked for "0.25 liters". I just felt ripped off, and mentioned to the server who said he'd mention it to the manager in a few days. Never have I met a less empowered person!

So, it's a nice little hole-in-the wall in the heart of Bethesda where everything else is crowded, noisy, and overdone - but I's probably not got back for dinner, and I'd like to see a decent beer priced a bit more reasonably than $44 per liter.

I was surprised at the tables and chairs - basically picnic tables and benches bolted to the floor. So not very comfortable. But great beer selection. Food was OK - my sausage was a bit dry.

What a great place this is! Instead of the typical inventory of American craft beers, this place has a wide selection of German, Belgian and maybe some other Euro-beers. The place reminded me of a friendly German Beer Hall - good food, excellent service (prompt, knowledgeable staff) and beer to match. I had been meaning to stop in and now am sorry I waited so long. I plan to return.

We decided to try Tyber Bierhaus because we had errands to run in Bethesda and love St. Arnolds in Cleveland Park. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was about 2/3 empty so it was a little quiet. The big long tables and benches give it a beer garden flavor but everything was bolted down and designed for really large people - the table was about 2 feet away from me sitting on the bench. Our server was nice and we each ordered mussels - the St. Arnolds and the Thai Curry. Both came with fries and a few pieces of bread. We had to ask for 2 more servings of the bread as there was not enough to soak up the broth after we were done with the mussels. Everything was fine though not much excitement. We think the problem is really with location. Even on Saturday nights, Bethesda's street parking is only for 1 hour until 10pm. Tyber is several blocks from the nearest parking garage (free on weekends) but on a cold or wet night, it's not ideal.

I found Tyber Bierhaus while randomly looking for “ethnic” restaurants on OpenTable. We are over in Bethesda from time to time – so I thought this looked like my kind of place – you know good beer and good food, in that order. Wow, this place is awesome! I took my wife out to lunch on a weekday, because you can tell a lot about a restaurant by how they take care of their daytime patrons on a limited wait/kitchen staff. My wife had the off-menu lunch special, three cheese grilled cheese sandwich with a side of tomato bisque soup. She loved it, the bread was rustic and the cheeses were melted, gooey, and perfect. The soup was absolutely yummy. I had the Pastrami Sandwich w/fries: seared slices of house smoked pastrami with gruyere cheese on pretzel bread. Simply one of the best pastrami sandwiches I have ever had in my life. My wife had a cider and I had the Ommegang Abbey (a dark double ale for a cold snowy day) to drink – perfect suggestions from the bar staff. They have a beer menu that would make any Belgian blush, if you are looking for great German, Belgian of Czech beer – look no farther. The restaurant has the feeling of many of the cozy beer haus I have spent time in across northern Europe.I also sampled the Aventinus Unser (a German Weissenbock with the perfect hint of banana) before we left – I will return and partake of more!

Went to Tyber Bierhaus for dinner the other night and had a great time. It was fairly empty at the time, but I could see this place being a lot of fun when it is livelier. Had a hefeweizen that we very good. Also got a sausage sandwich that was very good and peirogis that were also delicious. The chicken wings were slimy and left a lot to be desired. That was the only negative of the meal. I am sure we will be back for a beer.

cheese and it was delicious! We also ordered mussels and they were fantastic. We went on a weekday night and we were the only ones there but I can see a big sports crowd there on a weekend or event night... the ambiance was appropriate for a beer haus, lots of wood furnishings and simple. We would love to come back here with a group of friends for a fun night of drinking belgian beer and watching something sportsy. Oh, and our server was excellent and everything came out hot and in a good amount of time.

This restaurant is owned by the guys who run St. Arnold's Mussel Bar in Cleveland Park. There are German, Czech,, and Belgian beers on tap to satisfy any hankering. If you go, try the Hungarian Goulash. The place is a cross between a German beer pub and an American sports bar.

The location of Tyber is about 30 feet from the Bethesda metro stop, which makes it easy to get to. The beer selection is good with beers that should make everyone in your party happy. The weekly happy hour specials are a good way to knock off a few bucks as well. The food is good but I don't think it's good for the price they want. Overall, it's a good restaurant. When we went it was not busy at all for a Friday at 5 pm. We may have just missed the rush though.

Very enjoyable experience! Really liked the pork schnitzel a lot especially with the great red cabbage. Goulash ,though good, strangely had curry in it. Mussels are large, perfectly cooked and delicious. Liter boots of beer started out the evening for our group perfectly. Great waiter. Beautiful, model like manager arranged for treats for our friend's wedding anniversary on the house. Very thoughtful.
Hope to return often for the fun music and jovial vibes.

This place had such high expectations among my friends and thus far has been awful. The beer prices are expensive and they are always out of two or three drafts such as Hennepin, resulting in the customer having to get an overpriced standard German or Czech beer that is nothing special. Food is ok, but not worth the money. I love St Arnolds, their sister restaurants and think the food is awesome there and they have a quality beer list. In the three times my wife and I have come here we have been nothing but disappointed and someone is better off going down to Cleveland Park instead to their other places.Quite frankly, I hope they overhaul this place soon or it closes allowing a chance for something else.

On web and in-house, Tyber advertises Hofbrau and Staropramen beer. On two visits, no Hofbrau and Staro in bottles only. Take down the signs and banners if you don't sell the product. I dined early and was the sole customer. I guess that was the justification for serving "frites" that were clearly fished out of the fryer. They were disgusting.

Food was really good but not a huge selection of choices. The pastrami was amazing. Lots of beer choices..20 or so draft plus bottles. Only negative is the beer is over priced. Half liters are $10 mostly where as other German restaurants are $10-12 for a whole liter. Happy hour is the way to go. $20 for a liter plus a sausage platter.

Good variety of German & Belgian draft beers (albeit a bit expensive).
Server seemed knowledgeable about the beer offerings. Compensating for forgetting to keep our water glasses filled by bringing two extras wasn't seen as a humorous solution.
Much-improved menu offerings (greater variety) , but companions were glad for the St. Arnold's mussels recipes.
Compliments to the wurst sampler platter and the meatloaf sandwich as well.

Designed with viewing television sports events, so expect plenty of noise when there's a popular sporting event.

Tyber user very fresh ingredients, but does little to enhance the flavors. It is not a good place for viewing sports if one wants a comfortable seat with a back instead of a high stool. The TV screens are not large enough for the space; the sound, while loud, is of poor quality; and the most comfortable seats in the back are far from the screens and have poor sight lines.

The food was good, there was a large selection of beers. They had huge soft pretzels, and other classic German fare. Most of the tables were long benches, which I think was trying to emulate a German Beer Hall. They looked a bit artificial, and the table itself was very narrow. But it was fun place and I would go again.

Monday night is half-price half liters of beer and special deals on mussels. We had the mussels with beer/duck fat sauce, which were really great. Plus three great beers (Wittekerke, Paulaner Hefeweizen, and Pilsner Urquell) to wash them down with. Just across Old Georgetown Road from the Bethesda metro. A real winner!

My wife and I were attracted to the "biergarten" advertisement but found this to be more of a lunch or perhaps Thurs/Friday night after work place than suitable for a Saturday dinner out. The German food & beer were pretty good but it was almost empty on an early Saturday evening.

This bierhaus opened in what used to be the location of a night club or sports bar to which I never went. But, I'll definitely be going back to this place. Authentic German bierhaus atmosphere and great beer! The food was very good too with both traditional German and more modern American offerings on the menu.

I know this is supposed to be a beer hall, but low ceilings plus concrete floor plus wood tables = really loud. Difficult to understand or hear the server or to have a conversation. Upon leaving found there is a quiter section at back... would have been nice to have been there.
Beer menu would be well served to have some descriptions of the beer to help in selection. Food was good, mussels in particular were good. Would be worth a revisit if were a little less noisy.
