Excellent atmosphere and the fishbowl size beers are frosted. The food was good but can get a little pricey depending on what you order. Our meals were around 12 bucks. They can go up to 25.

We had a great server, were excited to be able to find my husbands favorite German beer that he had not been able to have since leaving Germany. When the band finally began, it was fun to have going on and they even began with a happy birthday to a customer. We had high hopes with the beer and the... More

We visited Great Haus on a Saturday evening while in Nashville to attend the Antiques and Garden Show at the Music Center downtown. It was a wonderful escape from the Saturday night crowds, the exorbitant parking and traffic the long waits for a table to relax and enjoy the evening at the Gerst Haus, a venerable Nashville landmark with the...

The first time I ate here was over forty years ago and still look forward to each return visit. It is not quite the same, but neither am I. German dishes are featured but other items are offered. One of the daily specials was blackened catfish and it was spicy good. Upon arrival, about 12:30p, the place was almost full... More

Wonderful music and even better smoked sausages with sour kraut, baked beans, and great rye bread. The apple strudel is to die for. Enjoy this Nashville treasure!

We have a group of Presbyterian men types that come the last Friday before Xmas each year. We've done it for almost 20 years and look forward to it. I call the day before and reserve a table and we get great service...until yesterday. I called, I confirmed separate checks, I gave a number that proved to be correct. In... More

We stopped here for a huge tailgating party before the Packer Titan football game. Close enough to walk to the stadium. Great outdoor party, delicious Bloody Mary's. Great bartenders! Great fun! Huge crowd!

One of my Nashville favorites seems to be on the decline - both in the way of food and service. What was once great is just now average.
