good local food and beer

Tipical German pub with heavy food and beer. Nothing special, but does the job. Can be very crowded in the evenings, but there is always some space to have a beer/schnaps.

Wenn you want the German food of good quality and with a great German atmosphere you just have to go here!! Great variety of food and drinks and good personnel. But be aware it's busy so when you want to go there make sure you make a reservation.

We went here for a big lunch with a 1 and 3 year old and the staff could not have been more accommodating. They were really friendly and helpful from the outset and could not have done more to help. It was clear that they were more than happy to have small children there too. The waiter had good English... More

Decided to try traditional German good tonight. We started with a special; Lobster Bisque. It was very rich (of course) but really tasty. Plus it was served with a skewer of 6 grilled shrimp. We easily could have shared one, just to try it. We both ordered schnitzel. I was a little disappointed in mine. It had an egg on... More

Visited twice in the space of one day during weekend trip to Dortmund to watch the football. The Christmas market was taking place outside, so very limited outside seating, and therefore very busy inside. Good food, which all seemed to be traditional German fare, and service very good.

We ate here during a football trip to Dortmund and had the Westphalian platter of local specialities which was excellent. The cost was very reasonable and the beer was probably the best we had on our trip. The inside of the restaurant looked good but we took advantage of some good weather and sat outside. Service was prompt and we... More

Decided to try the locally famous place and do not regret it. Ordered a combination plate of German sausages and got what I asked for: heavy, oversalted stuff that had to be washed down with lots of beer. Cannot complain, but will not go much higher than that.

We came here a couple of times, once for drinks and the other time for food as well. Both times the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was good. Lots of traditional dishes, and good local beers.

What a lovely place, we came here on the Friday evening for a couple of drinks when we first arrived in Dortmund and everyone was really friendly and the drinks and service were fantastic. We came in on our last day for lunch - I had the schnitzel and my partner had the ham hock (pork knuckle) and I have... More
