This is regarded as a 'must do' for visitors to Sapporo. While it is definitely a tourist destination, it is still fun to do and is not too expensive. You really are free to order as much beer, meat and veg as you want if you buy the all you-can-eat option which is likely the best option for most people.

Tourist trap on one hand, but that's to be expected. What isn't is that while the Japanese generally do a lot of externally-imported things well, I have to say that either a lack of knowledge about....or consumer demand for...has relegated the "beer garden" to a pretty lame celebration of both their own beer, and a time honored German tradition.

It is reallly touristic: three different large rooms with entire large buses coming all around. You will be in a huge room, which smells a lot, and eat BBQ lamb with beers. If you like this atmosphere and like the lamb grilled, then go there! We have been there 8 years ago and came back specially for it when we... More

This is a big restaurant. Food is above average. We are served unlimited servings of fresh and frozen lamb and vegetables for BBQ. The fresh lamb tasted better than frozen lamb and we ordered plate after plate. If you are a big meat eater, then this is probably value for money, It is just next to Sapporo Beer Museum, so... More

This german-styled beer cellar restaurant IS a tourist trap - as we pulled up in a coach, there were already 8 coached parked - but it is still a fun evening out. There is only a simple choice of food (lamb, seafood, vegetarian hotpot) and a binary choice of beer (light or dark) but the service is very swift, the... More

The Beer Museum is well worth seeing, but skip this tourist trap of a restaurant. The dining room is attractive and the staff is pleasant enough, but the food is extremely overpriced for what you get. In a city full of great restaurants, you'll be wasting your time at this one. The big thrill here is the Genghis Khan lamb... More

Went to Sapporo Beer Museum but unfortunately it was shut so we went and had dinner at the Sapporo Beer Garden restaurant instead. The dining room was interesting with the big beer distiller in the middle. Agreed with other reviews that it was rather touristy but quite fun to be there and the BBQ lamb was very tasty. We were...

We didn't managed to try their famous Genghis Khan BBQ as we were full from our sushi breakfast. However, we enjoy our snack size dishes we ordered and the atmosphere at that time as it was snowing. Coming from a country where it doesn't snow, we enjoy our time chilling at the restaurant soak in the view as we enjoy... More

The Sapporo Beer Museum is definitely worth a visit if you are a beer lover and best of all, it's free! The restaurant on the other hand is extremely touristy and lacks the fantastic atmosphere that you are sure to get in smaller restaurants that are plentiful around the city. The restaurant has a range of menu items which you... More

Good food and lovely atmosphere. A good place for a meal especially if you are visiting the museum. I would imagine that it will be quite good value if you are a big eater and drinker. Otherwise, the ala cart options are also quite filling. A lot of tourists
