Best garlic bread ive ever had

While i find the music at this place too loud, and hard to have a conversation with, i was very impressed with their sourdough garlic bread. Probably the best tasting garlic bread ive ever experienced, i must go back!!

I got off the manly ferry and saw a sign about they serve the best ribs. Well they should change that sign immediately. I walked in and asked can I get a table for 1 and was asked where I wanted to sit. I said the high bar just next to her waiters station outside the door. As I was... More

Good beer and great food! The pork was to die for and the staff were friendly and helpful. Prices were quite good for the quality of the food.

We went to this restaurant twice for nibbles and drinks. Both times we were hot and anxious to get a drink ordered. We felt as though the blond waitress was ignoring us and kept going to other patrons who were there after us (it wasn’t crowded). Luckily we caught a guy bartender who could see we were a bit annoyed.... More

My husband and I have been here quite a few times over the last couple of years. Normally in a larger group. No matter who you are there with you always have a fantastic time there. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food and beer are amazing. It's a spot I would always recommend to anyone.

If you like German beers and food, it's the place to go to. I tried the pork ribs which was cooked well. The half rack is actually quite a large serving. It's in the city and relaxing place to catch up with friends. Music can be bit loud though. Check out the waitresses there....

I love this place and having lived in Germany for 5 years I know good German food. The pork knuckle is fantastic and so is the sauerkraut and red cabbage. There is an assortment of many German beers on tap and to not like this restaurant is to just admit your misconceptions of this cuisine. Beautiful giant room with nice... More

If you want a good hearty meal then this is the spot for you. I ordered veal served with mash and was so pleased with it. A very generous serve of meat over a good portion of mash with mushroom ragout - delicious!
