We have visited the Brauhaus many times. It always delivers a good selection of lunch items. Excellent beer selection. The best part is that the waiters know quite a bit about the beer and they let you taste some samples before you buy if you...More

We only had time for a beer, but the beer selection was mind blowing, it actually comes in a book. Since there were so many choices, we asked our server to recommend something, and we loved both of the choices he made. Unfortunately we didn't...More

They may have a great beer selection here, but that is just as well since lots of it is needed to wash down the indifferent food. Schnitzels were overlooked and dry. The only food we enjoyed was the side salads.

My boyfriend and I came in on a Friday night at around 10 and the place was pretty much empty. Not that we minded. It's a nice change of pace from a NYC bar, where empty seats/tables are a luxury. I was actually able to...More
