    Love this place. Excellent sausages. Try the kielbasa. Great selection of German beers. Take down das boot. Get here early, tables are tough to get and they close at midnight (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Awesome authentic food and service. If you're in a rush, don't bother. The atmosphere is authentic in the sense that you should relax, have a beer, and enjoy your food, and don't worry about the time.

    Traditional bratwurst is great here, as is the weisswurst and bauernwurst; you really can't go wrong with whatever tubed meat you pick. Read more

    The apex of the menu is the wursts;sausages in seven varieties served with bread and pickled salads. Smoked kielbasa and the Berlin-style currywurst are the most memorable. Read more

    Grab a giant soft pretzel here and wash it down with a Das Boot. The potato pancakes and sausage are also not to be missed, so save room!

    God I love Lederhosen. Get a sausage, drink a beer, enjoy a view of the majestic Alps, watch out for the Satanic horse in the corner of the mural.

    Very weird "beer hall" since it's indoors. But the owners have tried as hard as possible to make it a celebration of the German-style which is respectable and fun.

    The wiesswrust is amazing. I prefer mine boiled and they were happy to comply. As appealing as it seems cheese is totally not required on the spatzle.

    A $5 brat and a beer at the bar is all you need for a simple and delicious after work dinner. German potato salad is awesome too!

    Pretzel is lackluster. Just a generic NY street cart style pretzel served warm. Accompanying mustard is delicious.

    Waited 20mins+ for food, they forgot to place the order. Waited 20mins+ for utensils, our friends finished their food before we got up to get them ourselves. They offered us free shots, never came.

    It's spendy for workmanlike German bar food, and the name is embarrassing, but the draft is superb, fresh; notably HB Dunkel.

    Poor service, single stall restroom (rare in a German place). Beers on tap a bit skimpy. Sausage was good. Probably not worth it, though.
