I had lunch here on a weekday in February. The room was almost empty, and the server was bored and "reserved" (to put it politely). The Braun Beer I ordered was truly outstanding, the Schweinesbraten a bit below average for a German Gasthaus.

This biergarten....brewery.......restaurant is situated directly across the street from the Altstadt Hotel Mollitor. There is outside seating on the street. After about 5:00 pm, there is an open area just above the Regnitz River. One evening we were sitting at a table right against the wall above the water when a local couple strolled up to the table let us... More

Went in after walking in the cold visiting Bamberger Dom. The liver soup was served piping hot, so soothing after being outside in the -5 degrees , taking in the sights of Bamberg. The fish dish comes with much potato salad and a plate of fres h salad. Enjoy the combination. After that we had pancakes with berries for dessert.

Very cool old building, friendly service and great beer. Try their Schwarz bier. It is easily the best I have ever had in that style. Tastes like a perfectly poured Guinness but better! Nice creamy head with a beautiful malt body.

We arrived in Bamberg in the evening looking for somewhere to eat and found this place. Nice atmosphere, friendly and food filling and tasty. Sausages, traditional Schäufele (pork shoulder with crackling) and beef were consumed, plus lovely beer. Sadly we were only there for two nights but it was much enjoyed.

Came to this brewery to try the famed local smoked beer. The beer is great and the beer garden by the river on a sunny day is wonderful! I did not have food or sit inside, so can't comment on the food or interior of the place.

Wow never had smoked beer before and perfect for winter! The dark beer is the richer of the two but you can't drink as much!

A small selection of beer brewed at the location. Warm recommendation for the "Kellerbier"-style brew. However the Kitchen closes early.

Inattentive staff and arrogance when we wanted to order more beer. You can get the type of food anywhere else in Bamberg, so not worth the risk of getting pissed off. We sat for two hours, the waiter came only one time to take orders. The view over the river is spectacular though..

Slightly away from the bustle of the town centre, Bamberg's oldest brewery serves excellent beer and food (the Schwaerzli especially recommended). A large terrace overlooks the water and has views of the Rathaus. It's well away from the passing traffic and beer-drinking hordes so noise is kept to a minimum, just locals chatting amiably. Service is great, highly efficient and... More
