I fell in love with this place at first sight. A brass band, the best German beer list that Iíve seen in a restaurant (even surpassing anywhere I visited in Germany!), and good food. The one downside was that all tables were first come, first serve and most of the people were parked at their tables for the entire polka night. I would recommend getting there early if itís polka night.

I had a great time here. A unique german restaurant with an awesome selection of german beers. We came on polka night, so the place was packed. You should try to get there early if it is a Saturday night, because it was really busy, and most people were staying all night.

Located in an old train depot, this place feels really German or how I imagine Germany to look like having never actually been there. They had mostly German stuff on tap with the Evil Twin Even More Jesus being a real surprise find. The place was packed and had a really good atmosphere even if it was mostly those under 25.

Hit up this joint with my boy Jake while in town for bid-ness. Not a huge place, but had a cool old school type vibe. Focus is on German beers of course, but they did have quite a few other European bottles available. Pretty hysterical when some dude broke one of the drinking boots and then had to pay $50 for it. Looking forward to visiting again, but when the weather is a bit nicer.

This is a fine place to visit if you enjoy German Lagers vom fass. Beer served in half liters, maŖ, and boot. Fairly large place with good food as well. Great crowd when a live polka band is playing. Everyone sings along. The website usually lists what they are pouring. One block away from Court Avenue Brewing. Only bad thing is that they allow smoking. Bring your respirator with you.

This is a fun German bar. Some nice German import selections on tap and boots available to drink them out of! Open seating and a good size bar to sit at with happy bartenders. The interior is styled after what I would imagine a German beer hall to look like.

Good german selection but other than that nothing special. Have done the "boot" a few times. Fun atmosphere.

Good atmosphere, good food, and most importantly good German beer. Service was friendly and somewhat knowledgeable. Food was very good--try the kraut--and reasonably priced! My only gripe is their draught selection, which seemed to be mostly weizens.
