New location, same great food!

I love the new location. The restaurant is larger and so is the parking lot! Although it's a bit further from home, the extra few miles distance won't stop me from going. I almost always order the schnitzel. It is always delicious!

This is the first time to the new location. I always order the smoked ham hock. Usually it is "falling off the bone" tender. My meal this time was dried out and so tough I barely made it through several bites. I said something to the waitress and asked for a steak knife to saw my way through the meat,... More

Haven't been to the new location yet, but went several times when they were off Hwy 7 and loved it! The cucumber salad and schnitzel is just like I remember my old Austrian great-grandma's !!! We took extra of the wonderful cucumber salad home with us. Glad to see it's open now at the new location and plan to go... More

The address listed for this restaurant is wrong. We know because we just went to the old location. We eventually found our way to the new spot on Bridgeport Way. Make reservations!! We were a group of six and they couldn't seat us together so we had to take two tables for four. There was a large banquet in the... More

First went to Bruno's after seeing the DDD story on Television. Great food, great service. We become regulars. On Tuesday Nov. 24, 2015 decided to have lunch at their new location on Bridgeport Way. A line of 9 people waiting to be seated when we arrived at 11:55 AM. There were many empty tables but the three young girls serving... More

Excellent food choice, great food, and next to authentic atmosphere. It's small yet homey space feels like eating at a favorite family members' home for a special occasion. The wait staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the different food choices, and made suggestions which met our needs. Would've loved trying the desert choices, but alas, we were too full...

Bruno's is a world of it's own! The staff are dressed in the German regalia and very friendly and helpful in explaining what an item is if your new there. They serve a Hangover Stew that has about everything you can think of in it, including pickles! The wait might be a bit long if they are packed, but that... More

Great German Food for the Tacoma area! Very reasonable prices, a nice variety of German beers, and of course a varied menu for Greman food! I understand they are moving from their Parkland location to a new Lackwood location. The parking will be much better, and a larger Resturant! That will be good as always hard to get reservations, especially... More

I'd heard about Bruno's for months and finally met some friends there and had a delicious German meal. It was plentiful, tasty and well priced. Dessert was a wonderful warm apple struedel, two ample pieces. I was very satisfied.

I always go to Bruno's to satisfy my crave of schnitzel. The cabbage roll is yummy too. Start your meal with an amazing hangover soup. Lastly, pick a dessert to end your meal. They have a selection of desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth. They offer lunch special menu between Tuesday and Friday. Lunch special comes with a cup... More
