At certain times itís a decent place to visit, but by and large itís a place to get drunk. The selection is so-so, certainly nothing uncommon or rare. That being said, the food is decent.

If you want big German drafts, this is the place to go. Food is decent. Prices are high overall, even for DC.

Went here twice, but neither time was too spectacular. From a beer perspective, this place doesnít really have much that is all that interesting. I donít think that they ever change the tap or bottle selections (their poorly printed menus look like they have been there for years). All the beers are German macros that you can find in any half-way decent beerstore, like Franziskaner, Erdinger, Weihenstephaner. I managed to try two new beers at this place, but they were both off the very small bottle list. To add insult to injury, the beers are all very much over-priced, which I noticed is the standard for most beer gardens. The decor and stuff is pretty nice though, and the back patio looks mostly like a proper beer garden. Pretzels were ok, but kind of a rip off. Food was wicked expensive.

Of the half-dozen places beer-oriented places we visited in DC this week, this was the least satisfying. one. We love German biergartens because of the conviviality. atmosphere, and lack of loud television sets. Germans are under this strange impression that people can actually talk to each other without the need for a television set to provide entertainment. This place was totally ruined by numerous large, LOUD television sits displaying various sporting events. The beer was overpriced and the food not particularly good. Our waitress acted like sheíd rather be ANYONE else than at work. All in all, a lackluster experience. Oh, BTW, not only did it have the least interesting food and beers of the places weíve visited, it resulted in the highest bill.

Perhaps not the best place to go for craft beer, but I had a pretty good time there drinking large quantities of German beer. Stayed inside, as the outside was packed when I went. May be worth heading back again sometime when I hit H Street, since this is one of the few establishments Iíve seen worth entering into.

Sort of a gimmicky place from a beer nerd perspective but another addition to the crazy, weird bars on H St. that are a refreshing "fuck you" to the downtown DC bars that charge cover and refuse entry for wearing sandals. Biergarten is actually what it says, a German beer garden with tons of German beer decor in the main "tavern" bar you walk into. But this is not the place to hang out- you gotta sit outside on the benches like a real beer garden. They had digital projectors running to show various sports games in giant format while I was there. There is also another bar stationed outside. In terms of beers, you can get a lot of normal, easy to find 500mL German stuff like Ayinger, Weihenstephaner, Franziskaner, Paulaner, Spaten. On tap, nothing too exciting at the time- mostly hefeweizens and probably Spaten Helles and maybe Optimator. The bottles we ordered didnít seem to fresh- pretty stale overall. Iím sure the tap list changes, but be prepared for ordering large format hefeweizens and helles lagers. Fun place, good atmosphere, and a favorite even among non beer geeks. But is it a place I would want to go very often? Not really unless a group of people wanted to go there to watch a sports game. I tried some of the food- good pretzels and mustard and what not. Didnít have a full meal here.

A lot of fun. This place has an authentic German feel. Their beers come in two options, 1/2 liter or liter. The food is mostly German but they have a great sausage sampler. Good German beer. Only problem was that the seating was uncomfortable and there was too much Spatan on the beer list.

H St is an underrated gem for beer geeks. And this while kitchy and themed itís actually a less-kitchy place in the neighborhood. As for the bar itself, the inside is barren, empty and not anything special. The outside patio is what its all about. Itís big, has plenty of TVs, and fun. The servers while not the most knowledgeable on earth, for the most part were German and knew what they had on the menu. Plus our waitress was authentic in the sense that she carried out a half-dozen liter steins to the tables. The selection when I was there was still Oktoberfest stuff so not a great selection in terms of diversity, but at a German biergarten Haus themed restaurant I donít anyone should expect a diverse selection, just a ?German selection - which it succeeded greatly at, imo.

Opened in June 2010, in time for the World Cup, in the "Atlas district" in DC. Itís owned by an American guy and a Lithuanian, so I wasnít sure how authentic this place would be. When the waiter spoke German, I took that as a good sign! Decent selection of tap and bottled German beers, more than the usual suspects. Beers are expensive, and the smallest size draft is half a liter. We only tried the smoked fish appetizer, which was tasty, but I will return to try the food. Nice addition to the neighborhood.
