1/2 liter of Bitburger served in this German restaurant, $5.00 was an OK beer. Gruner Veltliner, $7.00 per glass was dry and tasty. Rustic-looking Alsalce atmosphere filled with wood. Bratwurst, $13.00 consisted of a skinny hot dog, 2 scoops of sauerkraut, french fries. Overcooked and...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!

Family of eight ate at this German restaurant in Pioneer Square. Wienersnitzel was very good. Steak very good, Bratwurst okay. Mustard excellent. Pom frites and pretzel very good. Server got the job done, but took forever, bringing out food at different times. Poor attitude.
