    Awesome beer cheese.

    Obviously get the boot. The 1L is probably the better choice as it is glass vs the 2L plastic

    Monday nights are the best!!!! After work jazz and chorus girl or burlesque performances. Live bands are always spectacular and you'll see some good dancing too.

    The pretzels are imported directly from Germany. Classic look, classic beers, just respect for the tradition is what made this place one of the best we have ventured to in the last couple of years. Read more

    An indoor Biergarten. It gets a bit loud but that's not a problem. The schnitzel is really good with authentic sides. Get the "mas" and you'll be good to go.

    A typical beer garden in food and drink. The shot ski (four shots on a ski) and hofbraü make it a fun atmosphere with good beer.

    One of the many "not-quite-authentic" beer halls popping up in Manhattan. But, it is one of the better ones.

    The only authentic thing here is the beer. Below average food -- sausage was lukewarm, salads drowning in vinegar, schnitzel frozen. And i am qualified to pass this verdict having lived in Munich

    This is the worst bar in New York. The bouncers are racist, low life pricks with nothing better to do than hang out in Midtown on a Saturday afternoon. You're better off giving your money to Wendy's.
