Sweet vibe, bar is small and very old world feeling, lots of outdoor seating. Bartender was great, knew his stuff and was friendly as you could be. Selection was way better than I expected, European heavy, but that’s cool; st. Bon chien on tap! Food was great, amazing bar food with a German touch. Definitely worth the stop if you’re in the area.

Stopped here last night. Warm atmosphere on a chilly night. Wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable about the beer, and friendly. Food was good but not spectacular.
Great beer list....all kinds of styles. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Stop here.

German inspired restaurant with all the traditional dishes you can imagine. Food is very good and in a typical homecooked style. The beer list have large selection of international and domestic brews. Heavy weight on German beer. In the bar in the back however, this all changes and you have a wide selection of any kind of microbrew you can imagine. Definitely a must visit place if you’re in the area.

23 beers on tap, pretty decent bottle list, but nothing too rare. Outdoor seating is a plus in good weather. Didn’t try the food. Prices on the high side of reasonable. Overall a good bar, bit nothing i would go out of my way to find.

Quality beers with some fine food. Can get a bit cramped in the back bar, however.

The Bier Garden is a German restaurant in downtown Portsmouth with a rather extensive beer menu. The food is good to excellent from what I have had. I have found that the waitstaff is very knowledgeable about the beers they have. I have one annoyance, however, that continues to bother me everytime I visit The Bier Garden. For some reason this place never has enough beer menus. Instead they would rather recommend a beer for you and never give you a chance to view their extensive beer list. Eventually you may be able to track down a beer menu but it doesn’t seem like it should be so damn difficult to have enough beer menus at a place called THE BIER GARDEN.
