    Beer gardens are better than real gardens. Booze here while snacking on the pretzels, which're stuffed-and-covered with a mix of Gruyere and Parm. Read more

    The back patio is where it's at when the weather's nice.

    On 6/13, the Germany v Australia match will be playing here. Stop by for a chance to win a free pair of Havaianas! Australia has arguably the funniest nickname in all of the 2010 World Cup: Socceroos

    A beer garden with a great selection of brews. Bring your friends, get some pretzels and sausage, some beer, and enjoy!

    the large beer is the size of three human bladders.

    Try the Pretzels with mustard

    Never ever get the 11 0.2L glasses of Gaffel Kolsch. The beer is nasty and the form factor is just a scam to sell you way too much of it.

    Order up a side of currywurst sauce with the fries. Nice little kick to balance that liter of beer you have. Prost!

    If you're getting food, order the currywurst.

    Fun and laid back atmosphere and top notch service. It can get really crowded and loud but food is great. The food is typical German fare, i love the Schnitzel Fingers with fries and Sausage.

    Grab a seat out back in the garden and enjoy good company and a liter of Radeberger Pilsner with a Bavarian Bretzeln or a Frikadelle mit Pommes Frites.

    Good beer & good bar food. Also, great for large parties.

    Solid backyard. Do what you always do at a beer garden: get a pretzel and a 1L beer!

    Best Biergarten I have been to in Manhattan. Tacos are to die for, amazing non-wheat beers, friendly staff. If you can't get a seat outside, they play some sweet tunes inside. Surprisingly not loud!

    grab your dudes - and start drinking and eating sausages/schnitzel/cheese and liverwurst - and don't stop until you cant remb stopping

    the pork meatballs with fries and the tomato curry sauce are amazing and it's a good amount of food compared to the other small plates.

    Nick Pardo · November 5, 2010

    Best hot pretzels with beer to match

    steer clear of the curry wurst. you want it to be like Berlin. it's not. not by along shot

    Massive glasses of beer! Go during Oktoberfest to try all the fun seasonal beers they offer.

    The basement is a great place for a private birthday party! They allow you to play your own music and staff the bar.

    Meaty entrees include the brined, braised and roasted pork shank, sausage platter with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, and thinly pounded pork schnitzel. Read more

    Great Biergarten with a outdoor patio and legitimate German food (except for the würst tacos, that doesn't make any sense)

    Good beer. Great food. Awesome vibe.

    Reibekuchen are not fresh but processed food and "summer salad" is just plain bad. Very disappointing. Don't go, it's not worth it.

    Lacking on bathrooms

    Try the Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock. Its the strongest beer in the house with a 15% alcohol content (I think) and tastes a little like an espresso. #goodstuff

    Order anything on the menu that ends in _wurst. You won't regret it. (Unless you're a vegetarian...)

    Who knew such a small spot would have such a large outdoor seating area? Enjoy your steins outdoors on a hot NYC day.

    One of the best spots in NYC for a beer lover to celebrate a with friends. Reserve the downstairs with enough people to get your own bartender for the night.

    This cheese pretzel featured in Thrillist is only available sometimes and not on the menu. But ask for it, it is pretty tasty - 2 to an order for $7.

    Not sure why I'm drinking cocktails at a biergartden, but don't be tempted by the Birne Helene cocktail, while it sounds delicious, it's not so great.
