I was here with a group of friends from work. Had a great time. Hostesses were very good and efficient with a large table. The boot of beer is great, best to share! The eisbein is amazing! Let me repeat that, it is amazing. Best I have ever had! Great vibe!!

Great place to enjoy typical German food and an ice cold beer. If you take a seat at the bar and you speak German you might learn to know some interesting people.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, we liked the staff. They were friendly en the service was fine. BUT... the food wasn't good at all. The German specialty: my schnitzel was very bad quality meat, greasy and not tender at all. My husband took a steak, that was ok-ish.

Step into the restaurant, and you step out of Africa, and into a German brauhaus type place. Good solid German food, and efficient fast service. Some good beers on tap. A good place to go in big groups.

I will not go back to Brauhaus!! The food was excellent. I do consider my upbringing to be cultured. I have been fortunate to experience different cultures and living abroad for the past 18years but the servers at Brauhaus were not very welcoming. Our server finally "warmed up" to us.
