My friend and I had been in Dresden for 3 days at the Christmas Market before we found this place on our last night. We both ordered the same thing - schnitzel and beer. It was a lively, friendly restaurant. Highly recommend!

My friend and I were staying in The Westin Hotel almost opposite this restaurant, and therefore was a convenient place to eat. We had already been in their the day before for a few beers. The Brewhouse had a great atmosphere and was very popular with locals and tourists. When we were eating, there was a pianist playing which added... More

We were recommended the Watzke as a traditional saxony restaurant. The beers they served were good with a decent selection to choose from. The menu itself seemed a bit boring to me and in the end I went with a half chicken and a salad. The food was OK nothing bad about it. Service was good and talkative - just... More

It is essential to book a table at this restaurant as it is very popular. The decor is typical Brauhaus - dark wood, large tables, with unusual large portraits on the walls. The staff are friendly and helpful even though they are very rushed and busy. There are several tables outside for warmer evenings. Food is German, mainly Saxon, so... More

I was brought here by a local, and it was a good choice. I've tried the typical pig knuckle and a locally brewed beer, both excellent and very reasonable prices. I would go back.

We weren't really hungry, but we were thirsty and a stop at Watzke Brauereiausschank for a one-liter Watzke Altpieschner Spezial (4.90€) on a chilly, damp day was just what we needed. But one can't drink on an empty stomach. So we decided to try the Watzkes Bierstange, bread roll (2.00€) and had to try the dazu eine Portion Schmalz, with... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by some German colleagues and have to say the food was fantastic the service friendly and super efficient and as it brews its own beer it was some of the best I have had in Germany. I have been back on my own and as my German is not good it was good to... More

This is a typical local german beer house. The service is good and quick. It was crowded but we found a table. The food was typical german food but very well prepared. I recommend the pork knuckle.

Thank Earibal
