When I first looked at the beer list and food menu, I was shocked to see it was mostly American options. However, they do have some German options that more than make up for it. The Mixed Plate is a fantastic mix of schnitzel and sauerkrauts. Weihenstephaner was a new discovery that hit the spot. My next trip into Boston has a new spot on the itinerary!

Not the best gin selections if you don't like Bombay Sapphire. The nachos were good, though! The beer selection was also pretty good.

Great food, good staff. The burgers and sausages are hearty and delicious. Their house dark beer is really dark and yet light.

Food's great! Beer's cold! Live music is entertaining! The place to go if you're ever around the Theatre District of good ole' Boston!

In over 30 years of sporadic visits, I've never encountered any of the service issues listed by other customers, but I'll readily agree the food is rather bland, and often served room temperature. Once in a while, I'll get a stellar meal where everything is just so. That fact, plus the fact it is one of the oldest beer halls in North America, keeps me coming back. The menu isn't entirely devoted to German stodge, the greater portion features common American bar and tavern food like wings and potato wedges, soups and salads.

The sauerkraut balls were great. The only dark beers were Guinness and Jake's Dark. Jake's Dark was good enough. Had the wiener schnitzel with dill spaetzle. The veal was tender but in general all very bland. I'd go back once more to try some different dishes and perhaps change my opinion.

44 beers on tap, but food isn't very good... The restrooms definitely need major renovation. Service is very slow, but very friendly

I like it. German beer hall with loads of German beers available. Food is good. Nothing more to say. :)
