    The vibe of Biergarten Haus is distinctly Bavarian, with a shaded open-air patio out back, well-suited to knocking back a litre or three of hefeweizen while dancing to polka or watching fußball. Read more

    Authentic, German Influenced Beer Garden with indoor and outdoor areas as well as a rooftop deck. The food is fantastic and they have a large menu of imported German Drafts.

    The pretzel bun things are delightful. Pretty good (but pricey) beer selection. Satisfying schnitzel.

    Schnitzely goodness comes in your standard, lightly breaded Wienerschnitzel, and Jagerschnitzel. This 7000sqft bastion of Bavarian revelry fills up quickly for big events, so be sure to arrive early. Read more

    Good beer and outdoor space, obviously, but the cloying traditional German music, played a touch too loud, ruins all.

    The food is amazing, the beer is great, but severe understaffing makes for some pretty sad service. It's not your server's fault! He's got way too much to do! Tip well.

    Was here for lunch and the Wurst platters were the only avail. Item - but YUM. Knackwurst had best flavor, then the Weisswurst. Brat was ok, but grt w/the mustard. Good kraut and a pretzel roll too.

    "Ham" burger was delicious but the service was HORRIBLE. I watch my waiter sit and watch the basketball game for the majority of the night and still got 20% gratuity.

    Huge beers for what feels cheap after downing a liter. Food is so-so. Avoid the obviously microwaved pretzels.
