Great choice for lunch for a group of us who had all been to Munich over the years. Not just authentic and traditional meat selections, but excellent rothkohl, spaetzle, et all to accompany. Wide range of German bier on tap, of course. Friendly staff who helped with our meal choices, even given our familiarity with the cuisine. Reasonable price, good... More

Went with my daughter it was crowded but we were able to get a seat. Beer is excellent with a large menu, and the food was terrific. We shared the large sausage plate with spätzle and sauerkraut .Awesome food and drink and the atmosphere is terrific.

Well, we used to LOVE this place...but...not anymore. The service was good, atmosphere fun, but, food, not so good. Ordered 3 apps, German meatballs, salmon and trout spread, fried kraut balls....I'm really pissed about the meatballs..it was ONE meatball, sliced in to 4 pieces!! How insulting..if you don't have enough of an ingredient, then don't offer it, the smoked salmon... More

What a really nice looking authentic German restaurant in the middle of weirdo south street. Lot's of beers to choose from! The food was good, the portions were large and the wait staff was on point. However, the restaurant was very loud inside and it was hard to carry on a conversation and the music they played was lame and... More

I lived in Germany for 15 months many years ago. Have visited many times since. Love a good German meal, and that is exactly what we got at the Brauhaus. Long list of German beers on the menu. Great German menu, lots of tempting options, both for dishes as well as sides. My husband and I chose the Gulash and... More

We decided to visit this restaurant after seeing it on Burgers, Brews, & Ques on the Food Network. This restaurant did not disappoint as the food was amazing and they had an extensive list of German beers. We started with the soft pretzel, which was pretty large and tasty. Then we ordered a bratwurst sandwich and brauenwurst sandwich with sauerkraut.... More

Parking is not easy near this restaurant. OK, Saturday evening, but we were shown to a table at the far end of the balcony as far away from the restaurant ambience as it was possible to get. The poor waiter had to stoop underneath the ceiling to serve us. Our first two requests for beer were met with "just gone... More
