Worth the wait

Extremely popular and no wonder. Amazing menu and variety of authentic German cuisine. Bar well stocked with huge array of beer and ales and you'll no doubt make new friends while awaiting your table. Portions are vast. Lively atmosphere despite te dated decor.

We were in New Paltz and the first restaurant recommendation we were headed to turned out to be closed. The bartender at Jar'd suggested we go to BrauHaus and she turned out to be right! The sauerbraten was fantastic and fell apart with the touch of a fork. The potato dumplings were an amazing surprise! I'd never had them before... More

This place has absolutely gorgeous food. From the german traditional, to garden fresh vegan, everything is so satisfying and creative and tasty. With their amazing menu and their scenic vantage point beneath the Shawangunk mountains, the restaurant is so popular that you will find that the wait for a table may be longer than you'd expect from a small-town restaurant....

The Mountain Brauhaus is located at the base of the Shawangunk Mountain cliffs, about 15 minutes West of New Paltz NY. Located in a beautiful setting, the Brauhaus serves delicious and authentic German food. The wait staff dressed in traditional German costume adding to the overall experience. The wide selection of food was enjoyed by everyone at the table. The... More

Mountain Brauhaus is my happy place. The food is delicious, fresh and plentiful; the staff are warm and wonderful; the beer, wine and cocktail list extensive and mouth watering; and the old school sense of place heartwarming. It is the sort of place where people of all ages are hanging out at the bar and laughing. In the summer months,... More

We waited almost an hour for a table - apparently it's always like that so be prepared to drink a few beers while you wait. It was worth it, though, and the food and service were terrific. The chowder and the schnitzel were the highlights of the meal for me.

Let me start out by saying the food is great here. Definitely worth the drive for good German food. However, when my party and I arrived, we were told there was a 30 minute wait. An hour and a half later, we still were not seated. The host staff didn't even have the courtesy to let us know what was... More

This was our first time here and we were not disappointed. The wait was long on a Saturday night (90 minutes) but we should have realized that when we saw the full parking lot on Friday night. Once seated the waitstaff was excellent and attentive. Our meals were excellent and the portions were more than enough. Will certainly go here... More
