Have to have reservations for this place because it's very popular with the locals. Newly renovated exterior and a warm, inviting interior with two massive shiny copper beer kettles in plain view of the diners. We went on a Saturday night and got last minute reservations for a party of four. At 6:30pm it was packed with people having dinner... More

Great brew, great food and exceptional service should be expected at this modestly priced, german "pub". This is a great kniepe and should not be missed if you are in Ratingen.

What a great Brauhaus. Food was exceptional, accommodated a table of 14 people with little notice. Neat ambiance and delicious beer. Would highly recommend if you are staying in Ratingen.

Nice place with a bit of history. Enjoyed my time here. Nice food and great craft beer. The servers helped with an English version of the menu and the limited skills with English. Outside siting is better as it gets a bit stuffy inside.

This is a very popular bar/restaurant (micro-brewery ?) mainly because it is very close to the Messe/Gruga Halle. If there is a convention in town it is best to book a table in advance. If you don't you might find you are perched on bar stools at small round tables near the door or totally out of luck. The service... More

Authentic comfortable surroundings, big portions of delicious well-prepared food with excellent presentation, excellent beer and drinks, and all at reasonable prices. Friendly welcoming service even though we were plain ordinary American tourists and not RIck Steves walking in with a camera crew. We haven't been so satisfied leaving a restaurant in a long time. We rate them #1 in Germany,... More

Thanks to trip advisor we went early to this restaurant in town. It was packed and buzzing with noise. Excited locals all meeting up for dinner and or drinks. The waiter managed to find us a fabulous table and provided us with a menu in English. We were delighted when our orders arrived including the baked Camembert and other snitzel... More

I was bought here by a friend who lives in Ratingen as he told me the local Altbier was what everyone drank in the area. After drinking the beer that is brewed here I was sold on the stuff! The beer is fresh, full of flavour and the pub itself was what I expected a small town German pub to... More

If you like good home style German food, full of flavour, very large portions washed down with great beer and friendly staff, this is the place for you (and me). Plus the prices are fantastic value for money.

Pork with sour cabbage and mash potatos is what I got but the real name of the dish? Who knows, may be other reviewer could help here but anyways the real deal is their dark ale in house brew. Really good beer. My friend allowed me to taste the pork veil with roasted potatos and it was also great. Top... More
