I remember going quite a few times when it first opened and throughout the years – I even had a date with the drummer of their polka band. (Just one date? Two words: fanny pack) Honestly though – I haven’t been in years! I work just across the river and one day we were at a loss for someplace different to go and decided to try it again.
We went for lunch and it was pretty dead. But the place is HUGE so it’s hard to even imagine it full. Now we were there for lunch so we weren’t partaking in their huge bier selection – but it’s definitely one to check out.
Dawn went for the Pretzel sandwich – it’s a big sandwich and definitely filling. She really liked it and it’s hard to go wrong with ham and swiss – especially when you throw Bier Cheese on top! The pretzel was soft too.
I had a TERRIBLE time deciding – traditional Schnitzle? Abgebraunter Leberkase? (It’s meat loaf)
Mettwurst? I had a nearly impossible time deciding!!
And how can you not love a place with an oompa loompa on the wall. There is live music nearly every night and they have a wall of steins and you can join in their bier club if you choose.
Why Should You Go? I haven’t really had their beer in long enough to remember it but I was pleasantly surprised by their menu options. It’s a little expensive for a work lunch – but the service was good and the food was tasty as well.
