    Excellent food, excellent drink, excellent service. Get a pretzel, some sausages, and a radler and experience bliss.

    We ate about half of the menu & everything was excellent. Particularly liked strawberry salad, knackwurst, spaetzle. We tried all 3 desserts & unanimously agreed that the financier was the best

    Radler brunch is the best-kept secret in Logan Square. Bloody mary, pork belly, benedict, biscuit, doughnut — all are the best I've ever had.

    Cozy space with lots of bar seating and long wooden picnic tables. Pretzals, beer cheese and mustards lived up to the hype. Not much of a beer drinker, but nice tidy selection of cocktails.

    Now open, former Vie standouts Nathan Sears and Adam Hebert are hoping to raise the level of Bavarian dining and beer in Logan Square.

    German gastro. Like a really nice French bistro but without the tude. Sausages, assorted picklings, creamed spaetzle, and cheap good draft BEER starting at $4.

    Spacious German beer hall! Delicious sausages akin to what you'd find at The Publican. Nicely situated on Milwaukee Ave with a good view of the El.

    A unique menu with delicious food. A little adventurousness is required due to the authenticity of the fare. Huge beer list too.

    Even things that shouldn't be amazing, like a ham sandwich, are amazing here.

    Like no-nonsense beer and brauts? How about a whiskey list longer than the bible? Then come in, get the meat sweats and leave happy.

    The food is great but the bar itself is excellent. Awesome beers on tap and a great drink selection.

    The Shanks Pony might be my new summer drink. Who knew bourbon & framboise would combine so well?

    Get a pretzel for the table. And get a liter of beer. The braised beef was outstanding.

    Wednesday nights they got trivia at 8pm and it's quite popular. Also hard AF. They also got $4 40's of Miller Highlife. Hammerschlagen after.

    At the least, get a liter of beer and a haus pretzel. It'll be as RAD as it gets. (See what I did there?)

    Not your typical German spot-but what is typical in Logan Square? Try the Pretzel and the Rabbit dish!

    Our drinks always took a LONG time to come, so just get one of the giant beers right off the bat.

    Sounds cliché, but they are serious about their German beer list and sausages.

    The beer list here is mind-boggling and impressive. Pair beer with either the pretzel, German onion pie, any wurst available, or a smoked ham sandwich. Dinner nightly and brunch served on weekends. Read more

    A bit too hip for its own britches. I'd rather play beer hall at a real beer hall.

    The venison schnitzel was exactly what I needed on a cold, December night.

    The dinner menu is divided into two parts: "The Best," featuring seasonal dishes like veal schnitzel, braised rabbit and German onion pie; and "The Wurst," of which one plate is an immediate standout. Read more

    The smoked knockwurst ($9 for a quarter pound and $17 for a half pound) is "haus made" pork-belly sausage dressed with plum and celery jam, chips, fennel and dill mayo, roasted broccoli and mustard. Read more
