unexpected surprise, this biergarten is up there with some great ones from Germany. It has a huge outside garden, ,unfortunately we were there in winter.SO had to be inside. the Beer choice is awesome and so is the food choice. Great atmosphere. Wish they would get rid of TV's as this turns it into more of a sports bar.

This is a great place to eat and drink beer. I loved it. I suggest to be there earlier than peak hours or after since it is hard to find a place specially during the winter time. The pretzel is amazing

Had a tall beer with browsing the different crafts kiosks at the Old Mecklenburg Brewery. Lots of nice crafts and very good beer with a giant crowd on a very cold afternoon. Heaters spotted among the tables and shops outside.

Visited while in town with a group of eight around 7pm on a weekday. The beer selection was great with a variety of options. Not a tremendous amount of choices for German food (basically, sausage, schnitzel, pretzels, sauerkraut)...even had burgers and pizza. We had to change tables three times as it is first come, first served with about 5-6 long... More

This place is definitively unique, the atmosphere is completely different from other places. They have many varities of really good beer and wine. Also ,the food is really good and perfectly pair up with whatever you're eating. I recommend this place to beer lovers.

Look, you cannot deny that the venue is amazing. Kid and pet friendly with games, plenty of seating, good drinks, and the food looks like it has potential..., but that is where the problem occurs. We arrived on a beautiful, sunny, weekend day. This was our first visit and were trying to figure out the restaurant protocol for a late... More

Great German style biergarden. Benches. All styles of craft beers. Big place...bring the dog, children because they have a big field for them to keep occupied. Great indoor bar and eating area thats dwarfed by the outdoor seating area. Bunch of people here but parking is available around the place if you look. Great marzen, dunkel. Dont know about the...
