    Try the chicken ( doesn't matter what kind because it's all great) and apple cabbage.

    It doesn't get any better than this place. Authentic as hell. Food's to die for; beer is even better.

    Make sure you have the German chocolate cake shot while you enjoy the accordion player

    It is a very good thing for my wallet, my liver and my waist line that I live a half day's plane ride from this place. Oh my, is it awesome in every way! Just start with a big mug of Dunkel

    Get a beer paddle to sample the four year-round beers plus the monthly seasonal beer.

    Just chill outside and break steins with friends. The bouncers love it.

    Food was horrid and beer tasted stale

    Most of the servers are good, but if you need guidance you should ask for Parker. I'm guessing that this guy makes a small fortune in tips.

    This German-style beer hall is perfect for a fun but laid back afternoon-into-evening outing: Long, communal tables, an outdoor patio, big soft pretzels, and even bigger beers. - © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    If you attempt to play the drums while the band is on a break, you'll get kicked out.

    Pretzels and bier cheese!

    Service is amazing! Try the pretzels with bier cheese!

    Victoria Canby · July 28, 2013

    The Bier cheese is a bit to strong to smother chicken in... It is awesome for pretzels though

    One of the best experiences I've ever had (and I went to the original in Germany, too!) Ask for Parker to be your server. He is the best server in the world! You won't be disappointed.

    Michael Rotgers · July 21, 2013

    One of our fab stops in Cinci. Check out the patio. Great German food and beer. Take the $1 shuttle. Drops you off right there.

    Scott Landers · July 8, 2013
  • Lori G.

    Server was slow and slammed things down on the table. Took 15 minutes for anyone to even acknowledge us. Food was great once we got it.

    Lori Graves · May 27, 2013

    Giant pretzels and bier cheese with Heifeweizen!

    Avoid Nancy's section! She's slow and if you have gay face, she will ignore you.....

    Avoid Nancy at all costs. She ignores her tables.

    Best potato pancakes and sauerkraut balls!

    8 dollars x a liter of beer. They do not show you the prize till the check

    The corner of 3rd and Saratoga looked a lot different in 1910. Notice the streetcar heading for Fort Thomas. Read more

    Great place at night, good beer!

    It's good to experience once or twice but if you are looking for a really good bar that treats you right go to the lager house in Cincy instead.

    Joseph T · November 25, 2012
  • Joseph T.

    They could learn a few things about hospitality. They close at 2am on Sat but the bar and the band stop at 1:30, they close the bathrooms off, force people to down their beers and kick everyone out.

    Joseph T · November 25, 2012
  • Joseph T.

    They have really good beer and the service is pretty good. It's Kentucky so they allow smoking inside.

    Order anything. Drink everything. You cannot go wrong. This place is heaven on Earth.

    Oktoberfest!! Parker is the best server EVER.

    Laura Endicott · September 15, 2012
  • Ken S.

    Was not impressed. It is hyped up in Cincy b/c it is the only German place around. Would rather drive an hour to Columbus or somewhere else to get better food.

    Ken Shulock · August 11, 2012
  • Joseph P.

    Schnitzel Cordon Bleu is the only way to go!

    I don't suggest hitting this place up for lunch unless you have plenty of time.

    If you have younger kids, ask for Parker. He was great with the kids - got drinks and food out to them right away. Knew his stuff, too.

    If you don't drink Dunkel, you're a pussy.

    Anna Norman · May 8, 2012

    Kind of overrated but it might be more fun in summer. I'll have try it again. The Dunkel was good, definitely get a liter of that
