Great place to grab a drink

Our group stopped here to check out what a brewery in Heidelberg would be like. It was early, so not many people were there yet but we sat down at a table and were served nearly right away. The place is a great looking German brauhaus, or brewery, complete with the long wooden tables and robust... read more

Great food (had vegetarian options), great bier brewed on site, great service and restaurant décor was so much fun! When we go back they may need to brew an extra several gallons of the pilsner!

Showed up with a colleague around 8:30, very crowded but waitress was kind enough to help us navigate to a couple of seats. Home brewed beer (unfiltered) was very good. Food was plentiful and prepared well. Nothing exceptional but good old world German cuisine.

Unfortunately I can't rate the food or beer. The service however was terrible today. We stood in the front entrance for about 15 min. Three staff members completely ignored us, a waitress brushed past us 3 times averting her eyes. Not at all what we expected - we did however find another excellent restaurant with friendly staff.

Loved it here! It's really friendly both the staff and the locals! The beer is home brewed and you can see the copper tons in the room, the hop 'chandelier' really add character! Read more on: http://wp.me/p4bgzH-kZ

Nice little brewery with great atmosphere. The food is better-than-average traditional german food, but the real draw is the great, home-made beer on tap. Definitely worth a visit, especially in the summer when you can sit outside right down the street from the Alte Brücke (old bridge).

We stopped in Heidelberg as part of a river cruise. We asked around and Vetter was recommended. It is on a side street that feeds into the market square. We sat outside. The menus were in both German and English. We had their own brew seasonal beer which was very smooth. I had the schnitzel and my wife had dumplings.... More

We visited Vetter for lunch and really enjoyed our time there. The place had a nice authentic feel and our server was very friendly. Both the schnitzel and the brat we had were good and the house beers were very good. I particularly liked their dark beer. The prices were good too.

Vetter is between the Cathedral and the Bridge Gate. Their house beers were very good and were generous pours (compared to the US). We also had the house schnapps which were worth trying if one enjoys hard candy.

The homemade sausages are very tasty and the beer is just amazing. I'm not a big fan of wheat beer but Vetter's beer is just incredible.
