Big beers

If you want big, German beers, this is the place to go. Unfortunately, the staff wouldn't turn more fans on when we were there, because of flags on the walls, and everyone knows how hot it gets in Cairns. This made the evening a little less enjoyable. The food servings were big but the food was... read more

Unfortunately, the staff wouldn't turn more fans on when we were there, because of flags on the walls, and everyone knows how hot it gets in Cairns. This made the evening a little less enjoyable. The food servings were big but the food was average, as expected.

Group of 15 of us after a three day dive expedition, we were hungry. No waiting staff, you go to the counter and order, where you are told there is a 15% holiday surcharge! But the huge beer was very tasty and the pulled pork was interesting. Carry your own used plates or sit with them for the entire evening!... More

My wife and our daughter and I were keen to give this place a go as we love our beer and our daughter loves her food and the beer house reportedly has large meals. I got the kransky and bratwurst with mash and sauerkraut. My wife got the pork schnitzel and our daughter got the kids sausages. All meals were... More

Went to Bavarian Beerhouse for a friends birthday dinner, he and I shared two main meals (to get the best of both worlds) the Jägerschnitzel was quite nice although the schnitzel itself was quite thin. We also shared the Sausage platter, which had a decent sized Bratwurst, a decent sized Cheese Kransky, and a very small 3rd sausage which was... More

Our last night in Cairns, and we decided to try the beer house out.. And pleasantly surprised! Friendly and professional service and the meals were exactly as described.. The chef has put effort and love into the meals and you can see it!! Thanks for a good night.

the place was packed on a Saturday night, and the service was slow. But the beer kept us entertained!

Perhaps it was just a bad choice, but I didn't enjoy the traditional roast pork. It was tender but tasteless, as were the accompaniments of red cabbage, potato dumplings, and red wine jus. The waiter didn't ask why I'd hardy eaten any of my dish. My friends enjoyed their schnitzels, and a pie with mash and mushy peas. We were... More

Really enjoyed the food and beers at the Bavarian Beerhouse. Service was excellent and considering we dined there at a busy part of the evening. I'd highly recommend it.

We came here on Christmas Eve for a feed, I had the bratwurst and the cheese kransky combo and my boyfriend had the knackwurst. They came with mash, sauerkraut, red wine jus and mustard. A completely delicious dinner, we were so stuffed! Service was good too, the waiter gave us recommendations on both food and drink. A little bit pricey... More

On the esplanade it's a good place to have a feed and people watch. Food was good and authentic. Many German beers and beverages to choose from. The pork knuckle is sensational.
