After checking out the place online , my friend and I drove 45 minute, paid for parking, and walked 6 blocks only to find that the place was closed for a private party during normal operating hours. No mention was made on their website. I was extremely disappointed that they would be this inconsiderate of other patrons.

The beer list was the best I've seen in the US and can purchase some in Liter sized mugs. The food was excellent as was the service.

My husband and I took a taxi here from our convention center area hotel. We very much enjoyed the traditional german food. We both had the weinerschnitzel and beer. The schnitzel was delicious, beer was great, and the homemade bread they brought out before the meal was delicious as well. We would def eat here again

Very pleased with a recent visit to this German restaurant on South Street. I wanted to treat an old friend to dinner on a Sunday evening while she was in town. Her choice was an authentic German meal, just like her mom made. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent, both in taste and presentation, and the service was... More

Friendly staff, extensive German beer list (draught and bottle). The food was excellent and authentic yet accessible. The atmosphere is cool as well. It's a big place but the layout is suitable for busy times/events or quieter moments.

Food was fine - some special; some just okay. Service was terrible and weird. Very cold windy Friday night. Restaurant was mostly empty. They sat us right near the door - every time someone came in was freezing. We asked to move to the back of the restaurant - we could see dozens of open tables. There were only 4... More

Our party of 8 had a great time at the restaurant. The German food was prepared well and was delicious. The beer was also cold and tasty. Our waitress was very friendly however the service was a tad on the slow side. Overall we had an excellent time and all agreed they would happily return in the future.

Great choice for lunch for a group of us who had all been to Munich over the years. Not just authentic and traditional meat selections, but excellent rothkohl, spaetzle, et all to accompany. Wide range of German bier on tap, of course. Friendly staff who helped with our meal choices, even given our familiarity with the cuisine. Reasonable price, good... More

Went with my daughter it was crowded but we were able to get a seat. Beer is excellent with a large menu, and the food was terrific. We shared the large sausage plate with spätzle and sauerkraut .Awesome food and drink and the atmosphere is terrific.

Well, we used to LOVE this place...but...not anymore. The service was good, atmosphere fun, but, food, not so good. Ordered 3 apps, German meatballs, salmon and trout spread, fried kraut balls....I'm really pissed about the meatballs..it was ONE meatball, sliced in to 4 pieces!! How insulting..if you don't have enough of an ingredient, then don't offer it, the smoked salmon... More
