Had lunch there. The buttermilk fried chicken with truffle gravy with grits and garlic spinach was absolutely amazing, I loved it! I also had the Karbachtoberfest as marzen is one of my favorite styles. It did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Service was great even during the busy lunch time.

This brewery was once a Houston gem, producing great local craft brew for their loyal Houston Beer fans. The brewery has since sold their operations to Anheuser-Busch to cash out of the industry. What is left is a sad shell of a former Houston glory still trying to hang on to craft relevance as they shill for Anheuser-Busch and try... More

Enjoyed a burger and couple of pints while in Houston for a conference. Houston is not the easiest place to get around without a car but the bus system works and can get you places but it does take time. Once there, found a decent place with modern concrete / wood / metal finishes & furnishings. Beers are excellent: Weekend... More

This is the second time I've been to Karbach. The atmosphere is great and the beers are even better. I would like to try their restaurant next visit.

Plenty of great beer choices and options to sit indoors or out make this a good place to visit, the only thing that let it down for me was the small portion of fish we got.

For those who have not been in the area in a while, the expansion has been tremendous and wonderfully accomplished. The biergarten is well shaded, with ample seating, good access to the taps, and just far enough from the stage that the amps from a DJ or band will not drown out the conversation. For those wishing for a very... More

The beer, particularly the German styles I tried, is right on the mark and is truly excellently crafted. We also enjoyed the BBQ pizza and had very good, friendly service.

This is our second time to Karbach and we liked it both times. It is a bit far from our house, but both times we were running an errand on this side of town, so it made perfect sense to drop in for a beer and a bite to eat! It was a hot day in Houston (October 30), but... More

I met an associate for lunch here a couple weeks ago. It was both our first time here, so we didn't know what to expect. I got there early to ensure I had a good seat in the restaurant and I wound up beating her by about 30 minutes. The server couldn't have been more polite and kept occasionally checking... More

I was at a business event here then when finished thought we would go outside to sample their beer - and what a surprise! This place has a huge outdoor area very similar to a German beer garden. Bands playing, giant jenga and pretty good atmosphere. The beer was good too!
