My husband and I were looking for a place to get a good dinner after the dinner rush hours, (about 9pm) I had never heard of Grunauer but it seemed to have favorable reviews and was one of a slim few still open late enough....More

We took a chance. Booked the reservation....highly suggest booking one. You will wait until they can fit you in. Unlike Restaurants in Germany, the bread is complimentary. So we ordered our alcoholic beverages and browsed the menu. I tried the farmers plate and my sweetie...More

Great selection of German Beers. Bartender was great. Menu had a huge selection of German dishes and sausages but we didn't eat due to already eating next door.

So, I am German and took some colleagues to dinner. The beer had no German taste to it as did the food. Sauerkraut with Peppers? Currywurst with yellow cheesy sauce? No way! The Käsespätzle were very dry and overall, the dinner was very disappointing. The...More
