    Have a zwickel and the bratwurst platter. Great during World Cup or Euros matches. When Germany isn't playing, it is more laid back and easy to get a table. When Germany is playing, well, it isn't.

    Fantastic sidewalk seating, German food and drink options and without a doubt, the top NYC viewing party for the German National Team or any big Bundesliga games.

    A Bavarian bierhaus in the middle of Alphabet Cit. Sommelier Michael Madrigale (Bar Boulud): “Best schnitzel in New York City and my favorite beer on draft, Jever, from Northern Germany.”

    Andech's German beer on tap!!! I believe that this is the only place in the US that has Kloster Andech's beer on tap. A must visit when in NYC! The food is good and the service is great!

    Love sitting outside on a beautiful sunny day drinking German beer. But food is worth coming even if you have to sit inside. On weekends get the Hax'n special if you love pork and yumminess.

    We tried the pork roast and the special goose. The meat was delicious and obviously the beer was great. Overall this is a great place to get some amazing food for cold weather.

    Who needs to drink any other beer when there is Spaten Optimator from Munich here on tap? Dark, strong, fruity, malty, creamy and with a caramel after taste. I love it and this a great German place!

    Beer and pretzel were so good I didn't have a chance to take a pic before taking a bite. Beer hall style tables are good for groups.

    This place is excellent and the food is very authentic. Get the Schweinsbraten with Knödel. Also, get a Radler, it’s not on the menu, but they know how to do it!

    The special Pork Shank is crispy perfection on the outside, tender on the inside and comes with great Bavarian sides. Just be prepared, skip lunch if you must to fit this gargantuan serving in!

    Munich meets Loisaida. Cheap brats, great outdoor seating, and a friendly staff always willing to give a recommendation.

    It's off menu, but they almost always have Schweinehaxe (roasted park shank), served w sweet stewed red cabbage, a large dumpling, & a dark smoky gravy. Best Teutonic comfort entree in the city.

    The best beer gardens in Bavaria aren’t new: they’re old, well-worn places with big mugs of traditional brews. 4 seasonal beers including Paulaner Salvator & Ayinger Celebrator are on the menu. Read more

    Get a massive pretzel and some beer from Bavaria. Awesome outdoor seating makes this one of our favorite places in Alphabet City when the weather warms up.

    A good Bavarian beer deserves an authentic brat with it. Go for the sausage platter and the Weihenstephaner. Thirsty? Get the large litre mug.

    Start (and maybe end) your night here with a liter of Hofbräuhaus Traunstein and either a Weiner Schnitzel or a Bratwurst Platter!

    Lots of fantastic German beers, but start with the two breweries sold exclusively at Zum Schneider: Traunstein and Andechs. You'll be speaking German by your third liter.

    If you are a homesick German guy you definitely should visit this venue. Eat one of the delicious pork shanks and gulp a Hefeweizen and you'll getting better in no time.

    Get the "large" beer. You basically have to and it will be worth it. Baked camembert and bratwurst are both delicious. Definitely sit outside if you can snag a table.
