    Fancy Chandeliers, scrubbed wooden tables, glowing gray walls and lovely patio for warm days make LowBrau a really cool spots for brunch in SacTo. Some vegan sausages options & rare beer list !

    This is our kind of German Beer Hall with great lighting, warm staff, and some of the most delicious, and definitely the most beautiful, sausages we’ve ever tasted.

    Duck Fat Fries and Schnitzel! Kelsey was a fantastic waitress- she tended to our every need, was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable about the drink/food menus.

    Enjoy cocktails or a beer off their ridiculous list, then prop yourself up on the deck, soak in some rays, and stuff your face! We loved the Hot Link but maybe you should get the Sausage Platter.

    The pretzels. The beer. The identity and interior of this place! (I'm a designer and couldn't help but geek out over that.) Such a pleasant experience all-in-all! Sit outside - it's lovely!

    Great food, awesome beer selection, and shitty service! Don't go there expecting the wait staff to care, the food and drinks are great though.

    Get any of the brats on a pretzel bun. The melon tomato salad was also amazing.

    It's the only sausage/brat place in town. Solid German beer selection (10+), as well as common Euro beer types like sour/lambic, hefe, and Belgium.

    If you have friends into beer, this is a great place to take them. Makes me feel like I'm in a German pub!

    So... I left a crappy tip about the plastic basket, and well I take it back. We were served on plates this time, and it was fantastic, so was the beer, the service, and the food. 4 stars.

    "Carmelized onions" means formerly frozen brown mush. Look at the photo. It's mush. But there's lots of it! Sauerkraut had no flavor. Chives were the best part, Horrible/nonexistent service.

    The duck fat fries are delicious! Curry ketchup is one of the best sauces.

    I'd steer clear of the brats/sausages and the pretzel buns. Juicy Lucy is solid though.

    They took the Juicy Lucy burger off the menu. What crying shame. Without this burger this place is a 9/10 for atmosphere and a 5/10 for food.

    Call to see if they are actually open. I drove for half an hour to get there and even though their hours online said they were open 'til 2am they were closing at midnight :(

    $10 for a LITER of fine Bavarian lager. Use that to wash down the star of the menu: the Dirty Duckfat Fries.

    Check your receipt. They will want to auto-charge you gratuity, and if you miss it and tip on top of that, you’re being ripped off. Shady business.
