The food is a three, the fun is a five

It's very German, with boots of beer, big pretzels, liver dumpling soup, schnitzel, and sausages galore! The atmosphere is loud and fun with dancing to the oompah band and big families celebrating! We always go to Brauhaus for the fun!

There were 4 of us. Each was more than happy with their selections of food AND beer. Their soups are wonderful. Their 3-meat meatloaf is very tasty. Their sausage plate is perfect.......balanced and flavorful. Their spaetzal was a little different.......shaped more like a pasta than small "droplets". But the flavor was there. We would recommend this place for good German... More

Happy 50th birthday this year to the Brauhaus. Has a very authentic feel and atmosphere. The menu is excellent and highly traditional. The beer selection, whilst small, is all Deutsch bier! As Michael Fassbender says in X-men...... Bitburger.... Das bestest! Go to the Brauhaus, it's fun!

Nice late Saturday lunch. Both my pork and bacon and my wife's veal sausages were very good. Here German potatoes were also excellent. Service a bit slow, traditional atmosphere was nice, Took a while to realize the older gentleman was human, not a stature, and that he was playing an electronic accordion.

Love this place - Saw it on Diver's Diners & Dives and had to visit! We had a table of 10 and they were very accomodating - infact, we stayed for several hours and still hated to leave! *Make reservations 2 weeks in advance! This isn't a modern restaurant - it is a homey, old-time gem. German beers, nice bar.... More

Overall a great place. I will definitely visit again. I would recommend staying with the classic German food items. I ordered a plate of sausages and German potatoes and it was fantastic. However, my daughters rib eye steak, was good but I am pretty sure it came with canned peas--yuck. My wife's Rueben, I am pretty sure again, was not... More

They are very friendly. Suggest to call and make reservation. They get packed fast. Very good homemade food. I called to find if they were open because trip advisor app gave out the wrong times.

Where else would one spend a Saturday night celebrating Octoberfest? Of course with a restaurant full of people doing exactly the same thing and all having a good time. However, it is the food that will bring me back...authentic, well prepared and delicious. All of us in our party had different items from the rouladen to the leberkasse to the... More

Have come here for years at the last Friday Cubs game of the year. Love it but expect to pay dearly for the Octoberfest beer. Still the ambiance of the place is always lovely and the German food is excellent.

It is a fun restaurant I will admit, but thieves come here during Oktoberfest and prey on the guests. They think visitors here will be too drunk to notice their belongings have gone missing because this restaurant gets very rowdy during Oktoberfest. We were sitting at the restaurant bar and someone found my purse, dug into it, and stole my... More
