The interior is excellent, very old school with a fair bit of room. Canít speak to food as I havenít had any, but their selection is not bad, with everything from some European favorites (Aventinus) to West Coast selections (Bear Republic). Overall, not a must see destination, but if youíre in the neighborhood youíll get a much better beer here than you will elsewhere.

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.

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!

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!

Nice place close to downtown Boston. Older place, and the inside and outside both show it, but in a very appealing manner. Food is great, beer is as well. Have a few local-only brews (including the house brew) as well as some regionals and macros. Great place for seasonals. Moderately inexpensive compared to most Boston bars/restaurants, yet it isnít a dive either. Would reccommend to anyone, in fact, I already have.

Iíd read some good things about this place, but I wasnít all that impressed with it, on the whole. I found it to be a little dank and quite lifeless, although it was very busy (probably too busy for my liking). The service was a little slow and the food wasnít all that good, not awful, but somewhat over-priced. The beer selection was good, but not huge... in fairness it catered more for European brews rather than American ones (which isnít really what I came to America to taste). Their own Jakeís Dark was fairly good and I had a couple of other nice brews, but it proved too pricey to drink all night in the place.

A well known old restaurant within walking distance of South Station. Worth stopping by for a serious choice of beer. Includes a Belgian tap of Leffe and many others. I tried the Jakeís Dark on-tap ($5.25 for 16oz glass) that had good carbonation, some maltiness but was balanced with a slight burnt coffee aftertaste. Decent dark. Food choice was reasonable but service was off this time due to no communication between our waiter and the cook staff. After waiting a 1/2 hour for fried scallops and everyone else served at our table our waiter informed me that the scallops were off and had to be thrown out. Cook staff did not inform the waiter of this fact at order time. Ultimately an alternate entrť was served at no charge to me.

A damn good restaurant, the food is superb, and the beer selection is impressive, with a large number of German and Belgian beers on tap, plus a couple of local brews as well as a couple of special in-house brews. Go on Friday from 8-12 for the legendary singalong. You have to experience it to understand itís full greatness. If you do go to the singalong, thereís a good chance youíll see me there.

Large bar on Stuart Street, close to the hotel I was staying at, popped in here for one more brew while i was out and about. Huge place, plenty of seating, nice staff, after seeing some of the ratings on here, i wish i had decided to grab a bite to eat, nice selection of brews, no top 100ís, but not a bad place to chill. If i am in the area again, maybe i will stop in for lunch.
