SPIESEKAMMER is a German restaurant located on Alameda Island, CA. The cuisine at Spiesekammer is authentic, and management does not try to cut corners by Americanizing the cuisine. Speisekammer is one of the few cultural attractions, and perhaps the only excellent restaurant, on Alameda Island. The fact that Alameda Island has been a navy town for so many decades, likely...

I love German food and I have been to the two German restaurants I know about in SF a number of times. At those establishments the food is great tasting and the flavors are complex even though the dishes are straight forward. The food at Speisekammer, on the other hand, was disappointing. It tasted off -- I don't know if... More

We've been here a few times, once even with take out and a beer while we waited. Wish they had more parking. Love the food and the patio.

My husband is a former resident of Alameda, and we have to visit this restaurant whenever we visit (which is not often enough). We dined here last weekend, and the food was delicious and enjoyed by our entire party, including 3 children under 10. My smoked and grilled pork chop was perfectly cooked, tender, and juicy. The sauerkraut was so... More

The beer was great. A good selection compliments the wurst and schnitzel offerings. My companions enjoyed the offerings as much as I did. Sitting outside was a treat in August. I have dined at this restaurant before in January and it was fine inside too. Service was pretty good as they were busy. Not fancy but fun and the beer... More

Specials are the best. Big selection of beer. Good entertainment on the week-end & no cover charge. A bit noisy in the bar eating area. Young crowd to young children

You definitely need to be in the mood for heavy, fill your gut, you gotta roll out the restaurant type of food if you come here for dinner. It's everything German food is supposed to be so in that regard it's good. Most everything is served with sauerkraut and covered in gravy. They do have a vegetarian section of the... More

We've loved this place for years, but it's doubly awesome now during the World Cup. The menu has something for everyone, including several vegetarian and gluten-free items than make it work well for a diners with dietary restrictions. Of course there's plenty of pretzels and sausage too! And did I mention beer? BEER! lots of great German beers including a... More

The food is really good. That's the bottom line. A wide selection of German beer -- not so easy to find around here -- with all the tradition German menu selections...the wursts, bratens and all that, along with good spatzel. Live music on the weekends can make it hard to carry on a conversation at times. but it contributes to... More

This restaurant is in a neighborhood half a block from Park Street so that generally parking can be found within a block or two. In front is the beer garden which is popular. The bar is in the first room as is a limited dining area. In back is a large dining area which can accommodate larger parties. Speisekammer has... More
