We went for Oktoberfest and it was awesome. Staff was friendly and did a great job checking on us as we were sitting outside. Several German draft beer options and plenty of sausage options to choose from. Pretzel and food was all outstanding. They make their own sauerkraut too which was excellent. I was impressed. I expected more of a bar doing German things but this was authentic and I will certainly be back!

On August 8th, I made a reservation specifically for "Outdoor Seating" due to concerns regarding COVID and the fact that it was a Saturday night so I knew it could be difficult to find an outdoor table in Alexandria. When we arrived, the hostess and the manager told me, "We don't take reservations for outdoor seating" despite the fact that they pulled up my reservation and saw that we were confirmed for one. The manager did say that he could give us a free round of drinks either seat us inside (which was not an option for us and the whole reason we made the outdoor reservation in the first place) or we'd have to wait at least 30 minutes (and probably longer since there were only a few outdoor tables). Since there was no telling how long we would actually have to wait, we left to find another place to eat. I understand that mistakes can happen and they obviously made an error when they entered their listing on OpenTable but this was a feature on the website that had already been in place for several weeks so it surprises me that it took until our visit for this mistake to be discovered. Then, as if that wasn't bad enough, later that night, I discovered that we were listed as a "no show". They never checked us in! I called the restaurant immediately and the person I spoke to already knew about the earlier incident. He apologized and said that he would leave a note for the manager to fix the mistake on my OpenTable profile and call me back to make things right. He told me that he agreed that both of these issues were unacceptable. So, It is now 5 days later and I have not received a phone call from the manager. In fact, the only way that I was even able to put in this review was by contacting OpenTable so that they could change the status such that it was no longer listed as a "no show".

First time eat out since February. My husband and I decided to have a special anniversary dinner in our favorite German restaurant, and we love it. Food was great, service was good and no crowd. It was Friday at 5 pm. We had have a free desert, which was a nice surprise for us. Great anniversary dinner🎉

Beer and appetizers were great. The goulash was served on fusilli instead of egg noodles. The schnitzel was good but a little tough. I’d definitely go back for happy hour!

Totally a ‘meh’ experience. It reminds me of someplace I would have gone in high school with my nerdy friends. Or the inside of a restaurant at a theme park. For beer—great. Food...mediocre.

We booked for a birthday dinner, happy that there's a German restaurant closer than an 90-minute drive. But overall it wasn't what we hoped. The best part was the cold wurst & cheese appetizer. They've taken the sauerbraten off the menu and now make it available as a sandwich only - this is not reflected in the online menu. The Wiener schnitzel was good, but my wife and our guest found the goulash under-seasoned and underwhelming. I would recommend this only to allow others to judge for themselves.

Delicious and authentic food and beverage. Whether you have a small or a large party, the restaurant is able to accommodate. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. I have a great time every time I visit and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a hearty meal that isn't overpriced.

The wait staff were friendly and cheerful, the pretzel appetizer was fresh, hot , and good. The accompanying mustards were good, however the cheese sauce was dull. The first main we tried to order was unavailable (although this was not noted on their web site), the others items desired were available. The Jägerschnitzel was over cooked in what appeared to be old oil (color and smell) and contained inedible bits of what appears to be joint material. The accompanying mushroom gravy, red cabbage, and spätzle were bland with little to no flavor. Overall not a great experience!

What a great time! Classic German beer hall, great food, beer, and ambiance. The noise was a little high but frankly that's part of the beer hall experience. Enjoy!
