I loved this place. It was not completely done (the biergarden was still being built) but the atmosphere was perfect. Long German style benches/tables with normal booths/tables around the edges. Long bar and a nice deck that looks over the dirty river. I sat outside but when the doors open you could hear the whole room singing German folk songs. At one point I went to the bathroom and the accordion player on stage had a row of people doing the chicken dance. Beer was good, if not typical. They didn’t have the monthly specialty beer ready yet, so I had a litre of the dunkel and hefe. Beer cheese was great as well as the hot girls dresses as German Oktoberfest servers. Will definately go back.

I went here to watch the World Cup final and the place was really packed. I was able to get seated outdoors, but their was no TV in that area, but I watched partially on my phone until the 2nd half. The service for being so crowded was very good. The server checked on my table 5 or 6 times during the hour I was there. The food was excellent and the ambiance of being there during the WC finals was amazing. Although it isn’t the original, you do get friendlier service. 5 beers on tap at a time. The prices weren’t terrible and were less than I expected. Parking wasn’t expensive either in a garage.

A solid brewpub in South Side, Pittsburgh. Valet parking only, but you can find street parking a few blocks away. It’s a huge place with 4 large fermenting tanks outside. They have a bar, a bunch of booths, several long benches German hall style, and several outdoor patio seating areas. I believe they have daily music (German style of course). As far as beers, they have 4 regulars - premium lager, light, hefe, and dunkel. They also have a seasonal which changes each month. The beers are of surprisingly good quality for a chain - even though I am not really a German beer fan, I can always fall back on the premium lager. The beers are served in half or full liters at pretty amazing prices ($9 ish for a liter of beer!). They also have a gameday Steelers special which is a blend of the hefe and dunkel and is pretty tasty. The food menu is German style, of course, and it’s pretty good. I haven’t had much to complain about. They have monthly food specials as well. Overall, I think this place gets a bad rep because it’s a chain, but I enjoy myself whenever I’m there. The beer is surprisingly good, too.

Atmosphere is really fun. Big German beer hall with c-shaped bar on the front left. Big wooden tables with big wooden benches. I asked how much the six-packs were and the lady said I didn’t want to buy them (she was saying they were expensive). The waitress was nice and gave me a sample of the hefe. The hefe was good. You can park on the street (if you can find a spot) or pay three bucks to park all day at the garage which is a few blocks away. The second time I went we had food, Jagersnitzel was great. Sampler was all of their brews and was cheap. Half liters was reasonable also. Surprised so many families were there. Guy singing and playing keyboard. A guy was making balloon animals for the kids. Really kid friendly. They have a little shop you can buy a variety of paraphernalia. Good time was had by all.

It’s a German place so always keep that in mind - expect lagers and wurst. The best part is the beergarten - on a warm sunny day there’s no better place to heft a Mass of Hefeweizen. Great views of the Mon!

Went here for an early birthday party. Great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, live accordion music and great and plentifully flowing beer. Lots of toasting it seems. The big German-style communal tables and really good food. The spaetzel and wiener schnitzel were really solid. All of the appetizers were great. Definitely try the sauerkraut balls and the potato pancakes. Parking garages within walking distance. Definitely go there. Have their four constant house beers plus a monthly seasonal.

What you’d expect at the Mills... an overdone, soulless money pit. Yes they have benches and bands with accordions, complete with costume. Food is mediocre as is the beer, tap list usually limited to 4-5 beers. It’s all overdone, I mean you can order a "shot-ski" which has five shots lined up on a wooden ski. And I got kicked out of here once, almost twice. That’s never happened to me in Germany or anywhere else in fact.

Located overlooking a river in a fairly new commercial development, It looks like how I’d a imagine a German restaurant in Germany would look. They only have 5-6 things on tap with a very strict seasonal rotation. The beers range from Boring to decent. The food was solid but not ribsticking amazing. The prices were reasonable if you don’t factor the cost of parking your car in a parking garage. I can’t imagine coming back here unless there’s some event going on.

A nice Germanic atmosphere. A huge place and generally very busy and loud. Decent food. Attentive service but not very knowledgeable about the beers. Prices are ok. An interesting diversion.
