Had dinner here with business associates before a hockey game. Varied menu with good appetizers and drinks. Service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy. Food was good but not memorable.

Stopped for dinner and it was tasty! Asiago garlic fries were of course amazing. Got sirloin with seasonal veggies and it was all great!

As a German I have to say the food wasn't real German. But a good American adaptation. And it tasted really good! Friendly staff!

Wow, Happy Hour at 3:00. Except it's in the bar area only. Tiny print somewhere. So we ate in the dining area. Two burgers, garlic fries, and two cold Marzen beers. The end of summer promotion got me in and my prize was $4.00 off...More

It is inexcusable for a restaurant to have such proximity to the great culinary traditions of San Francisco and to deliver such lackluster mediocrity.
