We ate here for lunch before going to the Mariners game and loved it! We had schnitzel (definitely get the mushroom sauce) and the bratwurst meals. Everything we ate here was truly incredible. The schnitzel was especially good. Don't get it without the mushroom sauce....More

It seems slightly out-of-place but this German bar is excellent. They have a great selection of beers, and can serve them in the (obligatory) glass wellington boot. Service is rapid and polite. Have the steak!

The German cousins said that they enjoyed the restaurant so I tried it too. I had a great start when the Ayinger Weissbier was served in a real Weissbierglas. The aroma of that beer brought back memories! I ordered the Wiener Schnitzel and a side...More

On the hunt for a good beer, we were tipped off to try the Alstadt and couldn't have been happier. Donald was behind the bar and was friendly and a great advisor about food and drink choices. On our last nite in Seattle we found...More
