Great German happy hour!

We visited at just the right time, too early for dinner but just in time for happy hour. Split a French onion soup and cabbage rolls on the appetizer menu, then got the feast to share, which they did without charging extra. Fun beer hall atmosphere and a nice selection of beers. Recommend!

Really enjoyed the food and beer. Authentic German atmosphere including live music. I would recommend this place for a good meal at a decent price.

I love the fondue here and the pretzels and sausage are great too! We stopped in on a recent Sunday and were pleased to discover that it was all-day happy hour so the appies were $5-6 each. It's a good place to stop for a drink and pub food with the kids in tow.

Nice variety of choices on menu. I chose a roast pork with red cabbage and my husband had cabbage rolls. Both dishes were deeply flavorful. My pork was tender and moist, the cabbage had a nice bite to complement the meat. We'll be back!

We stopped into Gustav's for lunch because we knew what to expect in the way of food and beer. We have been coming to Gustav's and the sister restaurant - Das Rheinlander - for the last 30 years. There appeared to be only two or three waiter's for the entire pub (on Valentine's day?) and service was slow. It took... More

Gustav's is a well known local eatery. It is in 3 or 4 locations around the Portland area. Always very good German food.
