Odd, thought I had already rated this. Itís a pretty great spot when out in Lisle, offering plenty of beer selection. The food does leave a bit of something to be desired. In terms of value itís pretty solid, not over priced but not a loss leader. Good rotation, good events, good ambiance. Solid spot.

June 24, 2012 - Probably the best beer restaurant in the íburbs. I am a sucker for all things German so of course loved this place. They had lots of glassware around and some of it was for sale, so I did pick up a glass to commemorate the visit. It was a little dark in the building, but maybe they were just trying to keep the sun out due to the excessive heat at the time in Chicago for June. Service was quick, but the guy just did not have much beer knowledge. Guessing that will be hit or miss depending on who you get, so not going to let that dissuade me from stopping by again in the future.

Their beer is great but their food sucked. I was really disappointed in the place. Went with a couple of friends and we all thought it was pretty bad.

First time here, very nice spot. Lots of beers on tap from some breweries that i havent even heard of. I had a Bear Claw from flossmor station, very nice wheat wine beer. Didnt get a chance to try the food but looked good.

I adore this place. The food is outstanding and authentic, the portions are generous, the selection is wide and I have always had good service. The beer selection is very impressive and I am always able to try new brews here. I wish I could go much more often.

A: Very cool. German-looking place and I like that you can sit at individual tables on high stools without being too close to the bar, while still getting the bar atmosphere. Q: Both the beers and the food are of quite high quality. Also, the website is outstanding--has a list of beers that are currently on tap, as well as those that will be coming soon. S: Every time that I have been there the service has been quite good. I canít attest too much to their serversí knowledge of the product, as Iíve generally used their online beer menu to pick out what I was getting before arriving. S: Great selection of craft brews on draft from around the country. Good deal of Belgian beers as well. Their bottle list isnít as large as many other places, and thatís really the only thing holding them back here. F: Traditional German style food. The hamburgers served on pretzel rolls are my personal favorite.

Cute woodsy theme...for the Black Forest I suppose. Fantastic German food! Try the liver dumpling soup and any of the schnitzels. Beer selection is fantastic with something new and different every time weíve been there. The bar area does get really crowded and their hours are a little odd.

HUGE selection of draft and bottled beers alongside an authentic menu of traditonal German cuisine. Northwoods lodge atmosphere makes this a great place to eat a meal and sample hard to find draft beers. My one downside to this place is that it can get busy and the service tends to be a tad slow, although extremely knowledgable.
