This restaurant right off the Altes Rathaus has the highest prices I’ve seen in Bamberg for a beer (just under 3 euros a pint). However, it’s probably the only place in town which serves 3 or 4 Sankt-Georgen-Bräu beers on tap. They also have smaller servings, which is rare in these parts. The food was a little fancier than the typical German Gaststätte, or at least the traditional dishes were done with a touch of pizzazz. The apfelküche makes a decadent dessert.

The mirrored owl, the owl’s mirror, the..,.. oh forget it.
Enjoyed one of the best days of my life and until today the best beer of my life here so it cannot be all bad. Bar maid wasn’t much for serving me and my wife, my broken Deutsch-English not quite conveying how great the beer and meal was. Nice long bar, sport it’s main feature as we visited on World Cup time, but there wasn’t a rowdy prick or complaining ol’ nag amongst us, all patrons were lovely people. Meal was wonderful, sparked up Franconian fare. Two tiered, toilets in back, slim-lined, but perfectly located just beyond the Altes Rathaus, which links the two-sides of the ’Bourgeois’ on the Regnitz (built in the middle of the river as the Bishop of the time refused to honour land to the people. Love thy neighbour, hey?), leading down into the shopping district of the north. Many outside, not too many in - to agree with Eithcubes. Bar curved around to meet a hidden wall, yet all chose to sit in the Summer sun. Don’t blame them, beautiful to play it down, and this bar serving Buttenheim’s finest, though not strictly local, was even better.
outdoor seating available on a crowded street out front. stone floor inside. dark wood. c reamy yellow ceiling. eclectic decor- puppets, old beer bottles, flowers, toy race cars, bear paintings. the song "girls just want to have fun" playing in the background. gerogebrau keller, pils, lagerbier on tap. couple others. central location. worth popping in for a peak and st george keller bier on tap.
Touristy spot in the old part of the town. Not really a beery place... altough I wouldn’t have wanted to miss the great selection of Georgenbraû beers that this place offers! They have a few on tap and a couple in bottle aswell.
Inside was empty save for me, porch was crowded - location is pretty fantastic. Decor is a „hip“ take on tradition, save for the series of Eulenspiegel figures adorning the many-mirrored walls. Food was OK, as was the service, only reason to go is the St. Georgenbräu brews sold here.

Touristy spot, mostly notable for a great patio location and some outstandingly fresh St. Georgenbrau Kellerbier. If you’re not going to Buttenheim, stop here to see how good this beer can be.
I had some nice schnitzel here plus some lovely beers from St. Georgen Bräu. There are far better places for beer in Bamberg but this is a nice restaurant with decent food and some good beers on the menu.
Ambiance - Fairly touristy dimmly lit pub with lots of dark wood decor. Decent amount of guests but most sat outside. Service - Very German with one young very friendly waiter that didn’t have much of a clue and one older fairly rough gentleman who had all the clue and a fairly unpolished sense of service. As a unit they where quite fine but on their own they weren’t very good. Selection - A couple of local beers of decent quality. Food - Solid hearthy German food. Had the bratwurst and saurkraut in a beer sauce. heavy but quite tasty! Value - Fair. Additional comments - None!

cool little restaurant with two draft georgenbrau kellerbiers. food was good but not superb, staff was friendly, crowd was mostly tourists. good decor, fun place, should just be on your list for the fresh draft kellerbier.
