Really cool little German restaurant featuring mainly german brews. You are able to get a 2l boot or 1l mug of beer if you are into that sort of thing. Food was tasty but very rich (as expected). Service was friendly. Overall a good stop.

Kind of plainly decorated place with wooden tables, sort of what you’d expect from a German restaurant, I guess.

The beers are almost all German, though there are a couple Belgian things available, too. The food is kinda what you’d expect. A lot of pork and potato products offered here. Sausage and all that jazz.

Not as good as GHS down in Redwood City, but it’s still a solid visit.

Stopped in prior to an other engagement. Mostly mellow crowd although it did get busy in the 30 minutes I was there. Not busily decorated which added to the mellowness and comfortable feel. Taps were decent with a few unique brews. Didn’t have the food. I’d stop in again to check out their selection. Staff was friendly allow me to sample a few and checking in on my selections.

Visited for dinner with the parents a little while back.

The place is kind of barren on the inside. My parents, who lived in Germany while the wall was still up, had a good time joking that this place is like an east German restaurant where they have a bunch of things on the menu but they dont actually have most of them in stock. The walls had minimal decorations, the tables plain wood, and it was crowded. If that was the theme they were going for then fine, just not my thing. Also, the one and only bathroom that I know about is in a skinny doorway which is hard enough to get through without servers constantly walking through there with plates and trays.

Food was pretty good for German food which isnt the most inventive food but when everything has pork and potatoes I can’t complain. Had a half liter of a schwartzbier that I hadnt already tried but they also had some other stuff that I was tempted to get.

Not a bad place and now that Schnitzelhaus is closed it’s probably the best place left.

Had dinner here with my girlfriend and her folks. Pretty serviceable German cuisine; not entirely authentic, but a pretty good effort for a US joint. Classic German beer selection expected in US; Weihenstephaner, Ayinger, Kostritzer, etc. Nothing showstopping, but not a bad place for some sauerbraten and a liter of brau.

Can’t believe I had to add Suppenküche to this site. Oh well, crazier things have happened. This is currently the premier German beer bar in San Francisco, although you’ll find a better one a half hour down the peninsula in Redwood City called Gourmet Haus Staudt. Atmosphere is fine, although it can get a little cramped and the lighting is not ideal. Service is average to good. There are a good number of taps, mostly German with maybe a couple Belgian. There are also a good number of bottles, again mostly German. Listen guy, you’re not going to find some über-rare tick at the ’küche, but if you want beers that drink pretty good, you’ll get that. They have Das Boot available (see "Beerfest") if you’re up for challenging your liver. If you’re there for your birthday or bachelor party or something, expect your friends to force you to drink one. The food is very good, again not as good as Gourmet Haus Staudt, but still very good. The prices are a bit on the high side, but not bad for San Francisco. There is no beer garden here as far as I know, so you’ll have to head over to Zeitgeist for that. Nice place overall. No Gourmet Haus Staudt, but hey, what is?
