    Good service. Nice beer selection. Burger was good but extremely overcooked. Brisket sandwich had too much sauce and the smoked flavor was overpowering.

    The giant soft pretzel served with mustard is really good, especially with beer cheese. It really is giant, though, so plan on sharing--half a pretzel is big enough to be a whole meal or 2 by itself!

    Do not underestimate the large pretzel.

    The giant pretzel was delicious, the staff pick wheat beer was fantastic the beer cheese soup was tasty. My salad, however, was very disappointing, as the figs were cooked to charcoal. Skip the salad.

    German beer is always great. Service was a bit inattentive at the bar, but I hear that's not common. Burger was great. Pork belly Ruben is a great idea, but over-smoked.

    It was loud but the hunky bartender bought our drinks.

    The Steeler fans rent the place half of it on Sundays. They have nothing to do with Germany so beware if your looking for an authentic place try a different day!

    Grab a liter of Brau Weis and the ginormous pretzel. I'll see you when you get here!

    The potato pierogies are a delectable appetizer. The portion is probably only enough for two people. They glisten in photographs.

    Nice atmosphere, but most beers on tap are literally twice the price of the other german bars in the city
