    Good selection of beers and nice place to watch a game with friends and grab a bite. However very poor in healthy options.

    Great variety of beer here. Also, a piano player leads everyone along in sing-a-longs. Had a lot of fun singing with the bar.

    The best schnitzels in Boston. Try the German mixed grill and sausage & sauerkraut balls with hundreds of German beers too.

    Total pub atmosphere. No frills but good burgers and sausages! It's a big place and gets really crowded!

    THE most pathetic excuse for a pretzel. Skip this spot and head to Harpoon Brewery for beer & a pretzel instead.

    Wonderful german restaurant! 🇩🇪🌭🍸

    Don't k ow why we ordered a hamburger in a German joint, but lesson learned. Stick with the sausages. The beer list will keep me coming back.

    Def go to sing along with Mel (on Friday nights!) the best way to kick off your weekend. Cheap pitchers, meh bar food

    Huge selection of beers, awesome margaritas. Saturday nights are fun with the sing-a-long piano sessions :)

    Best bar ever, you can sing while you are drinking that's is a party!!!! SING-ALONG WITH MEL.

    Don't go here for the food - it is as far from German food as Your local Chinese take-out is original Chinese cuisine. Tried the jäger schnitzel and the sauerbraten - both mediocre.
    Niels Boegholm · July 19, 2015
  • Kina
    Love the fried chicken blt. The warm chipotle turkey sandwich is amazing too. For beer get the speak easy baby daddy session IPA or the Jake's house Lager.

    The coleslaw was delicious. Had a decent beer selection, and the live entertainment was fun. Check the place out.

  • Joseph D.
    A legendary Boston restaurant which badly needs a reboot. Standard American fare with some German dishes is pretty good. The sing alongs are fun too.

    Great place to get some beers and brats while catching a soccer game. I recommend the sauerbraten and schnitzel sandwich.

    Fantastic selection of beer, and not all German! Service also fantastic. Our guy was from Nepal and I'd be hard pressed to remember a better waiter in all of Boston.

    $1 root beer floats are great for your underage friends.

    Looks like time stopped here. Definitely my favorite German place in Boston. One small thing: I suppose the level of service could be a little bit better. The food is really delicious though.

    The Reuben, cornbread and beer-battered mozzarella sticks were fantastic!

    beer battered mozzarella sticks. (discovered at phantom gourmet's food fest), even better at the restaurant!

    The smell of German food and beer is good. Reminds me of when I enjoyed such fare. Thirty years ago.

    Great service even on a Saturday night. Clam chowder and cornbread is an epic meal on the cheap.

    Oder a pint of Jacob's beer and a pretzel appetizer! Go on a night they have a piano sing-a-long for extra fun.
    Emiliy Marino · September 11, 2014
  • Rob H.
    Pretzels are a great appetizer. Mixed grill makes a tasty lunch or dinner.

    Great restaurant in the heart of Boston! Live piano on Friday nights is brilliant fun! Traditional German food and beers as well as regular dishes. Cannot recommend enough!

  • George P.
    Crowded and constantly busy, but in this case that's part of the appeal. Huge selection of beer and great food, but the service can be slow at times.

  • Jasvinder K.
    The atmosphere is great without it but the live music adds a certain charm to the place.

    Their small plates versions of bigger dishes are pretty hefty.
