I have heard mixed reviews about this place, mostly on the "okay" side. After visiting myself, they proved reliable. The bartenders are extremely friendly, but some of the waitresses are absolutely rude and unaware of their own products (which are tasty and fairly portioned). I will try to give this establishment a second try but I would advise caution. There... More

Went with friends and had a great experience. My friend was just in Germany said the hall is just as you would find in Germany. My friends (one of which we have dubbed a beer snob) loved the German beers. We loved the large pretzel and cheese spread, the three sausage chili and sausages on a bun. The potato salad... More

Excellent food - Knackwurst was awesome on a roll with spicy mustard. Quick service and washed it down with a Hofbrau. Highly recommend, especially before a sporting event.

I stopped in after a Bucks game at the nearby Bradley Center. The place had a nice atmosphere and I tried some German style dark lager and some local brats, which were pretty good.

Went here with friends and had a great time. Love the atmosphere and sharing tables with other patrons. Went on a Friday night and the whole place sang with the oompa band. Fun friendly casual. Enjoyed the Munich style beer too.

We stopped in while attending a wedding in Milwaukee - between the church and the reception. What a fun place! Great, fun atmosphere, the servers were adorable in their themed dress and were VERY pleasant. We ordered a few very large beers and the MOST DELICIOUS pretzels I've ever had.

The dining area is small with communal seating. It wasn't busy so we had no problem being served. It's a no frills experience. Food was okay, but not over the top. One strange thing was the meal was served on super small plates filled to the brim. Liter beers were half price. The beer is good--we've had it before at... More
