This place dates to the 1860ís which only adds to its charm. Brightlyblutnwith only a couple of tvís so itís a great place for conversation or on this night listening to the piano man. They have over 40 taps written on a chalkboard above the piano. Itís mainly local and regional craft with some German selections thrown in for good measure. They seem to do a number of beer events as well. The food was fantastic, especially the BLT Mac and Cheese. The prices were very reasonable as well. Another great find courtesy of ratebeer.

A nice old fashioned restaurant with good traditional German food and a decent selection of draft beers and imported bottles. Thereís a rather cramped bar area near the door and a large raised area for dining on rickety old wooden tables and spindly chairs. (Last visited 21 October 2012).

A beautiful and huge old school type of place, very 1920s look, wiith lots of roundtable, a super cheap snack menu (1.95$) from 11h30 AM till 5 PM. A nice and bottle selection shown on a huge blackboard, and nice and friendly service. Nice upscale pub menu...I will go back! 5$ pints, 2$ entrees, wow!

Old fashioned and historic German place. Traditional German nosh. The beer range is more eclectic with a few US craft beers - Dogfish Head 60/90 Minute available both times we visited. I assume the house beers are Harpoon rebadges. Pleasant atmosphere. Not much bar seating. Worth a visit for the traditional feel but not really a beer destination. That said, the range was wider than most German restaurants Iíve been to so mustnít grumble.

We went there last night and had a real good time. Had some good beers at the bar with friendly, knowledgable, helpful bartenders and a guy sitting next to us. Food was very good and reasonably priced, although we had to get 5 soft pretzels if we wanted any. Itís German beer hall atmosphere and nicely done. Bar area was busy and much smaller than the dining area which was vacant. Iíd sure go again!

Not my favorite spot. Itís in a weird neighborhood near the financial and theater districts. Clearly an old restaurant thatís hung around forever. Has a very old Boston (like early 1900s, not actual historic) feel. Beer selection is fins but not particularly cultivated. Food is not great. Service was lacking. I suspect that once upon a time this place was actually one of the better beer spots by virtue of its number of taps. It has been so drastically overtaken by so many places over the years it now looks quite pathetic. Itís time this place just got retired.

busy service personnel that may have been shortstaffed, none the less good service. Good authentic German and American food and drinks priced well. Good selection of brews on tap mostly German with some bottles. I like the atmosphere tin roof style open bar/restaurant retro 1930ís.

Good selection of bottles and taps. I had a great reuben. Wasnít too busy when I was there, so I had solid service. Open interior with old wood tables - nice if a little jammed.

A wonderful historic bar and restaurant in Boston. Tiny bar, only a few stools. Nice selection, but VERY expensive. $6.50 and $7.00 for a pint!

La sfilza interminabile di spina lascia senza fiato, e anche la selezione di birre in mottiglia merita. Líambiente Ť caratteristico e accattivante, con un esercito di eccentriche spine in disuso che torreggia bonariamente sui tavoli. Il cibo, di tradizione tedesca ma non ligio a uníortodossia intransigente, Ť eccezionale. Una visitina a cena, Ť di dovere; anche due-tre!
