Bottle list is quite nice, really have all the standard Germans and more, though I was disappointed to see so few from Franconia and basically none of the very small-scale bottlers. Taps were of a higher-than-normal quality, and varied. Decor is a little touristy-kitsch but not bad like plastic sites can be; it would certainly fit the stereotype for someone seeking it.

The food was good and had a distinctly German character to it, as if there was a German in the kitchen or just well-honed recipes; friendly servers/bartenders were quite American. Food menu warmed my heart, has some things I just can’t find in the States. Just one major drawback to this place: expensive!

Excellent German beer selection, including some rare and exclusive finds. The Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier was tremendous. Authentic German cuisine and very good and attentive wait staff. A bit loud, but tolerable. Worth the effort to make the trip. A must for German bier and food lovers.

Very good draft selection of German brews, best in the city. Food was OK, though some dishes a bit disappointing.

The Brauhaus Schmitz is an excellent getaway from the mainstream bars that I am surrounded by. It’s balls out German themed from the entrance to the bathrooms. The beer selection is vast as well as the schnapps. Delicious food. Rather pricey but the Brauhaus is part of Restaurant Week 2 times a year I believe. Four course meal for 35 bucks, so you have no excuse not to visit!

Great ambiance from when you first walk in the bavarian style archway. Everything is made to look like a German pub. The wait staff is comprised of traditional beer wenched with certain assetts prominently featured. Nice friendly and helpful service though sometimes hard to track down when you are in need. The selection is wonderful and German-centric. No better place in the city to find a good Berlinner or Dunkelweissen. The food is fantastic with their Wurst being the best (lol). Overall, this place is fun for the whole family.

Very cool place. Food is excellent, but pretty expensive. Selection of german beer is amazing. Beer is about on point but happy hour is a great chance to have some of the more expensive ones. The place is really cool on the inside. Defiantly a place worth checking out if visiting the city.

Schlenkerla  (413) , Austria | January 2, 2013
When I visited this place the second time in 2011 I met the brewmaster of Schlenkerla / Heller Braeu who was doing a beer presentation the same day in the restaurant. They had on tap Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche (Doppelbock) and the Urbock of Schlenkerla. When I was there the first time in 2009 they had Hofstettner Granitbock (one of the best Austrian Bock beers), which on tap I could never find before, even in Austria. Great place if you like German/Austrian Bockbiere.

Visited on 21/05/12. Good German selection for a US bar backed up by an average US bottled selection which is what interested me more. Mock beer hall style set up. Can’t say I’ve hit on too many places that look like this in Deutschland but can see what they are trying to do! Service was lacking a bit, one girl rushing around. We were there between 4 and 5 on the day of a Phillies home game so things were starting to get busy and one person wasn’t enough.

Good german beers on tap, and good pretzels to go along with them.
