Authentic Sauerkraut

If you are in the mood for a good sauerkraut, you're in for a treat. I am not sure about their other dishes but this is as German as it gets.

I sure hope this is a great place for watching sports and drinking because the goulash was an abomination. I was thinking of trying other food here but after tasting the goulash I will never willingly go here again even if somebody else pays. It was $14 when the amount of food was more like $7 and when you consider... More

We came here for dinner as my brother wanted to try this place out. They have a nice bar and some tables that resemble a beer hall but also regular tables as well. We ordered goulash, fried calamari as starters. for main courses, we ordered the bratwurst, wienersnitchel, a hot link, and the special of the day, roast chicken. The... More

Lets start with the service, we were greeted right away with a smile. The waitress was extremely knowledgable about the menu and offered suggestions. She also offered suggestions on... More

They have some very good beers on tap, the hard to find Czech Staropramen and the German Spaten Optimator among the best. Salad was good. Tried the Hungarian Goulash (beef stew/soup),not bad, not fantastic. I prefer... More

Very good menu with a nice selection of German beers. Prices are reasonable - service is good - the restaurant was too warm. We will go back.

San Francisco has so much to offer, and Steins, 731 Clement Street is a great new establishment, especially if you want a beer, wine and some great german food. It's new and clean. Very impressive family owned business, with the family members working in the restaurant, and bar. They not only offer german food, but fish of the day, salads,... More
