    Best of all the main dishes is the grilled rainbow trout. The whole fish arrives grilled beautifully, butterflied and filleted, but with the head left on, so you can fork out the tiny cheeks. Read more

    A full liquor license propels the crowd, and the food menu includes a fine selection of wursts and other charcuterie selected by chef Kurt Gutenbrunner. Read more

    Although the Biergarten is open year-round, we love it best for summer drinking. With communal seating, ping pong tables, unique beers on draft and pretzels for noshing, it's a fun al fresco hangout.

    The room in the back is great if you're looking for something a bit more quiet and tucked away. Get tickets for beer & food at the entrance, or just go straight to the bar at the right for cocktails

    Beer is always amazing! Gets crowded, but can usually swoop up a seat for you & your crew within minutes. Fully enclosed with heat lamps (that work) all winter. Oh, and there's Ping pong, nuff said.

    Line up to buy tickets which you have to use at the beer and food bars. Then cash them in for large, salty and soft pretzels with spicy or wholegrain sweet mustard. For non-beer drinks, 1 cocktail bar

    Incredibly crowded on summer evenings and weekends, but it can be nice on a weekday. The highline above acts like an echo chamber and it gets super noisy. And what's up with the tickets?

    Nice on a warm day, but no air con as it's basically outside, so be prepared! Great cocktails.

    Such a fun atmosphere. Only serve beer, so make sure that's okay with everyone you're with. A great place for a first date, laid back and fun, kind of like a grown up, classier frat party.

    Such a great contradiction to the pretentiousness of The Standard Hotel. Such a great outside area for young people who just want to enjoy a good beer. I would absolutely go back.

    Decent selection of German beers. Nice and loud like a proper Biergarten. Pretzels and sausages are also fantastic. Great place for happy hour but get there early! Young crowd.

    Cons: Hard to get seating, Im almost always standing Pros: Drink token system is sometimes irritating, but its efficient, and the heating os great, can be outside even on a cold night

    You have to buy tickets for each beer at the entrance. Tickets cost 8 bucks which is reasonable. Nice atmosphere for hanging with friends. But the pretzels are also a ticket (ie 8 bucks!) Ridiculous.

    Great location, right underneath the highline. It pays homage to The roots with the wait staff dressed up & the German named cocktails & beers. Food is standard. Sadly The crowd has become douchey

    Grab some tickets from the wooden booth as you enter ($8) then hit the bar on the left for light, white or dark beer. 2 tickets for a litre stein.

    The sparkling water is 4$ for a small glass of dispenser carbonated tap water, strong taste of chloride. Drink beer instead, probably brewed according to german purity standards :)
