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

    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.

    Good beer selection but they shut early and are cash only. Also, somehow a major bro hang. Be prepared.

    The Bratwurst is good and there's a large selection of German beers. Come prepared, it's cash only!

    Go during a weeknight and order a few things from the menu. You'll never have the opportunity to if you're just there for beers on the weekend.

    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.

    One of the best spots on C. My #1 German bar in NYC. Has a great German specific beer selection and outdoor seating in front. Cash only.

    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!

    Awesome selection of beers, nice outdoor area - and real Germans as servers. Show up in Lederhosen and this place is a home run.

    A neighborhood gem that just so happens to be one of the best places to drink huge beers and eat German food in the city. Bring friends

    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.

    Prost! This is a great spot for watching football (the one where you play with your feet) and in general for beer or hanging out

    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.

    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.

    The menu consists of hearty German fare like beef goulash, homemade spatzle with cheese and bacon, sausage platters, smoked pork belly and more. Read more

    Really great for food, but some of the worst service I have ever had. Was completely ripped off by a waitress and the whole staff backed her up.

    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!

    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.

    Grab a table early on the corner at this Alphabet City beer garden. After a couple of Spatens, take a stroll to East River Park.

    Feature dishes: Züricher Geschnetzeltes (a sliced veal cutlet in a creamy mushroom sauce) and Kaiserschmarrn (chopped, fluffy German pancakes with raisins served with applesauce).

    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.

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

    The freshly baked Brezeln (pretzels) are delicious and do a great job of soaking up all the beer you just drank.

    One of the most authentic german beer halls in manhattan. Thrown on some lederhosen, sit outside and order a liter and a pretzel.

    Traditional yet unpretentious. Perfect for large, convivial gatherings and choice people watching. The place gets packed, especially during Oktoberfest (but then again, that should be expected). Read more

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

    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!

    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!

    Schweinebraten is the shiz. Braised tender pork and dark beer gravy was so delicious. Comes with a side of various salads.

    literally the BEST beer in all of NYC. Fresh flown over from Bavaria - some beer not available anywhere else, served perfectly. Amazing vibe. Love it.

    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.

    Mulled wine warms your belly almost as quickly as the Aventinus ice bock* *beware the ice bock. Twice as strong as Aventinus double bock. Tastes like whiskey!

    Order weissebeir in 0.5L glasses like they are meant to be served in. And if you are self-respecting do not order 0.2L beers...

    Get there early as they get pretty packed. Oh, and if you can go for Oktoberfest, then definitely make the trip, get some beers and dance on the tables!

    Zum Schneider celebrates its b-day with beer, pig on a spit, & a performance by the owner's band, Mösl Franzi & the JaJaJas. Swig the beers from Haufbräuhaus Traunstein while available. Read more

    Solid rendering of German foods and beer, unbeatable spot for summer day drinking! But... Rude (and hectoring!) waitstaff, poor service, bad attitudes.

    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.

    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 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.

    it's an ideal before-party place. every time I went thre the crowd was cool, beer was so good and the legs hanging off the ceiling were still there. no they didn't fall down yet.
