We were celebrating my husband's birthday and were on the East side for dinner. With time to spare we stopped into Von Trier. Time must have stopped here. It is a lovely German Tavern with a great selection of beers. We will visit again for dinner. The waitress staff was knowledgeable about the history of the restaurant and suggested a... More

Went to recreate my first date with my wife in 1990. We just had drinks and shared a pretzel, but will come back for a meal next time. Great ambiance!

Fantastic selection of beers in an ornate atmosphere. Leave your accordions and lederhosen at home. This boutique cocktail lounge plays jazz and European classical music, has very knowledgeable bartenders, and a pleasant wait staff. Try a variety of wurst from their simple menu. Great place for a date, a work gathering, or even for the weary traveler.

We just walked in and out after asking for food and they said they didn't have any. We neglected to look at the chandelier that came from the Pabst House. I wish I had. It was probably as tasteless as everything else on the interminable tour of the "mansion" that had us corralled and unable to use the powder room... More

This is an excellent bar for fans of German food and beer. Excellent selection, great food, and wonderful atmosphere. Not cheap, this is for those wanting an experience, not to party. Would go back for sure.
