Both the atmosphere and food here are great! Atmosphere: They have a covered outdoor seating area that gives off a very cool ambiance. There's booth seating for larger groups. At certain times they also have an accordionist playing & singing. Food/Drinks: Lots of beer. But the best part is the pretzels and the Wursts. The only thing I'm not really a fan of are the Currywursts; they're good, but kind of boring. Parking: There's a small underground lot that you can get to from the alley behind Wirsthaus, or street parking. My Recommendation: Scharfe Wurst

I bought their Wild Boar ($17) wurst and banana beer ($8).. They charged me $123.00!!! How did this happen behind my back? If I didn't check my bank account that day, I would have not known they were robbing me. Double check your bank accounts, they're shady!!!

I been coming hear since they open there doors, I've come for special occasions only such as my birthday during the month of October. Last year, and the year before I rated this place 5 stars. The food use to be really good, quality food, quality servers, and quality service overall. Today, I rated this place terrible. My husband called ahead of time to RSVP for a party of 10, the "server" was impatient and not prepared. We notice they were new servers, still this not give any person any reason to not do there job as it should be done, like answer questions regarding specials or the menu. I love the gal that was working while pregnant, she knew who we were, was on top of her A game. This server, couldn't even figure out absolutely anything, he would have the bartender take our orders, and serve us. Also, when my mother in law asked him for a clean plate, he rolled his eyes, and told her that I know that's her plate all my mother in law was asking was for a clean plate because she didn't want to eat in her salad plate.He was so rude and didn't have the ability to give her a clean plate 2) the food quality was terrible, last year they had an incredible chef who made by tasty German food. I was looking forward to the potato pancakes and I was so disappointed that they were so so bland and had no taste. Nevertheless, I wasn't expecting a five star service but it was no surprise that I was coming in with a big group of 10 we have given them an RSVP a week ahead of the date. I came to this restaurant to impress my family what a great place it has been for me and It is so unfortunate that the day that I bring in my German family so they can see that L.A still had some homemade quality, that was the day that everything that could have gone wrong went wrong and for that I will never set foot again because my family was not impressed, I was not happy I wish that this restaurant would go back to what it used to be an old fashioned German restaurant. Nevertheless I am NOT German but my husband is German American and he has taught me quality German food and nothing will compare to his homemade cooking . Our service date was on October 20th at 7 p.m.

Loved my first visit here! Good service, great food, awesome beer selection. And I got a free pretzel with a Yelp check-in! I told the waitress I enjoyed red ales and brown ales and she recommended the popular Paulaner Oktoberfest. It was awesome and I'm glad she recommended it. I also ate the rabbit sausage with potato salad and fried potatoes - delicious. We played Jenga at a table outside all night. Had a lot of fun and think it's a great addition to a pretty bland part of town. Excited to go back.

Fun and funky place, plus, I'm a sucker for litres of beer! I liked the vibe of this place. It had a good, though a little watered down German authenticity (what do you expect? It is in LA, not Bavaria or Cincinnati.). The servers are all smiling and very pleasant. The food was alright, but didn't sit well with me later. The wurstplatte was not happy in my stomach, but it tasted good with the saurkraut and potato salad. Oh, and ping pong in the back!

This authentic German restaurant has a beer garden and serves hearty classic, comfort German food in a friendly and lively atmosphere. Order the Reibekuchon, six bite-size potato pancakes with mascarpone cheese and dollops of applesauce with a little sprig of dill. We also like the Bretzel, a Bavarian pretzel with sweet yellow mustard. The mustard was heavenly. They serve it with their sausages too. The Jaeger Schnitzel is sautéed breaded pork in a creamy wild mushroom sauce and a Geflugel Wurst, two large chicken sausages. Both are served with two side dishes. The choices include fried potatoes with or without bacon, mashed potatoes, fries with or without onions, potato salad, red cabbage, sauerkraut, cucumber salad or green salad. We tried the tangy red cabbage and potato salad. Be sure to order a slice of homemade apple strudel. It was served warm with freshly cooked apples and a small side dish of cream.
