Well, clearly it’s German beer. Stopped for the beer and enjoyed some simple German bites. Weird as it is the red cabbage reminded me of a trip to Germany. Beers are pretty straight forward and the IPA lover and Belgium drinker both found something we...More

This is the best brewery/beer garden in Charlotte. Large outdoor area is the perfect place to relax with friends. Indoor areas are fantastic for entertaining, eating or just getting out of the weather. A great selection of beer and food. You won’t regret a visit...More

A large palace designed as a beer garden with an eating section. We ate the bratwurst, the schnitzel and crab cakes. Very tasty and well prepared. The beer mentioned in the subject was excellent. Nice service and reasonably priced.

A fun place, with lots going on. We recently went during their Mecktoberfest, and the place was packed. Lots of good beer choices, but the German food seemed a little "mass produced", and pretty average. And it's very over priced. But it still was a...More

Stopped at Old Mecklenburg Brewery for a tour, lunch & drinks while staying in the Charlotte area. Great time for all. Wonderful beer selection, great food (best Rueben that I've had along with great pretzels). Atmosphere much like the beer halls of Munich. Plenty of...More

I’ve only lived in Charlotte for a year, and as a small business owner with only a home office, I will jump at the chance to have a meeting at Old Meck. It’s a big German-esque beer hall but doesn’t get too loud and the...More

Not the 1st time I've been here, but it's been very nice on both occasions. Food is excellent, sausages are very good, as is the reuben sandwich. A must has to be the hot pretzel, simply delicious. Order it with the mustard AND the cheese...More

We stopped here with our dogs while waiting for our hotel room to become available. Nice shady area, wide paths, music, good beer. Food was ok, and too pricey for the portions. We had a nice time there.

It's a huge place with a huge outside area and they have some pretty generic foods for pickier eaters but the food is great. Outside sometimes has live music and some outdoor games like corn hole. I took my 4-6 ye olds a few... More
