This is one of my favorite spots in the city. The key is to make sure to go when their house band, the Ja Ja Jas are playing as it gets really crazy then. Amazng food, great service, delicious beer and, when they're there, a fantastic band that will have you humming ooompa tunes for a week. A

German Food is not as easy to come by in NYC as, say, Japanese or Italian, so it is wonderful to try and find an authentic German restaurant in a wonderful location, serving the REAL THING! Even though Zum Schneider will be celebrating it's 14th anniversary in August, it was our first time, but certainly not our last. We tried... More

Although it's not really a Biergarten in the traditional sense of a large outdoor space with communal tables, Zum Schneider has a fun atmosphere and an excellent selection of very fresh beers. We did not eat a full meal here, two of us just shared an order of O'Batzda, a soft cheese mixture, found in most restaurants in Bavarian. Good... More

Funky wooden tables, lots of locals and amazing beer. Fun, noisy, crowded and full of happy folks. Did I say great beer?

A real bavarian place in NYC, they serve a lot of authentic German variety of beer, as well as foods. Atmosphere is vibrant, like in Southern Germany at a Biergarten. Going back next time I'm in NY

This is a great little neighborhood spot. We stopped by on a Sunday evening. The weather was perfect so we sat outside. It was very busy, but our waitress took very good care of us. The outside area was a little tight, but that didn't bother us one bit as we had friendly people all around. The food was great,... More

This is an unassuming watering hole in the East Village. You can sit out for a mug of beer, weather permitting. The food is ok and inexpensive.

Was there for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Great atmosphere with cool live oompah music. Food was good but did not wow me. For what you get it's on the pricier side.

There are a number of places called beer gardens in the US that market themselves as German because they serve beer in large glasses and serve cheap American hotdogs and call them wurst. Real German food, even at moderately priced pubs in Germany, has a wide variety of great tastes, with delicate fresh vegetables and salads, light and airy noodles... More
