Brew Pub Visit

This is a typical German/Austrian Brew Pub. I had an excellent schnitzel and my wife had a very good goulash with a dumpling and bread. We ate here strictly for the meal since neither of us are beer drinkers. Both meals were very good and the wait staff we very friendly and helpful. Would... read more

Been there for a dinner because of a business trip. The atmosphere is very nice, same as the own Josef brew beer. The menu has some nice dishes on it but the potato soup and the cheese spätzle are alright. Already had some better once. Maybe next time some other dishes!

To get the access to the restaurant area you got to pass throughout the smoky bar area with loud music. The restaurant is totally another atmosphere. Ambient and very relaxing music. It is possible to chat with people at your table with normal voice tone. Nice lights architecture. Very good service: staff is always smiling and ready when you need... More

Barlike atmosphere, with an Austrian twist. Here you are able to get snacks as well as dinners well prepared. The atmosphere is like being in a bar, a trendy bar. Prices normal not too expensive. One thing to mention though, is that some of the waiters do not speak english, which once in a while causes language problems, - misunderstandings... More

Had just arrived in Linz after two planes and two trains from the U.S. We were hungry and tired after traveling. We chose the restaurant because of the TA reviews and the proximity to our hotel. We got there about 8:45 pm on a Saturday night and had no problems finding a table. We elected to sit outside because of... More

We were seated right away in the garden at the other end of a table with another couple. The host made sure... More

Great central location, excellent food, cozy atmosphere, affordable prices. If you're hungry for a breakfast, dinner or lunch, this is definitely the place to go. They also have beautiful inner garden. Also good choice for bigger groups or business dinners.
