Maybe coming from Cincinnati our expectations were a little high for German fare. Other than the cheese curd appetizers, the rest of our order could have stayed in the "kitchen". I have never had burnt spaetzle and the 3 wurst, never had worst. As long as you go for beer and apps you should be fine. Both dinners were overlooked,... More

Just grabbed a bite for lunch here. It was great. For $8 I got a brat with bacon on it (yummy), pub fries, and a nice sized salad with a great cranberry vinagrette. They brew their own beer, so I tried a couple different flavors, both lighter ambers, both good. They had taster sizes for $1.75 which worked out great.... More

We went to Sprecher’s for dinner mainly because they had gluten free options available for my grandson. We were seated promptly. They asked if we preferred a booth or a round table. We chose the roundtable–obviously a poor decision on our part. This table did not seem to be assigned to any of the wait staff. My daughter-in-law mentioned it... More

Great atmosphere...a little dark and loud...but then what bar/resturant isn't. Food was great. My and my son's burger was a little well done, but that might have been due to the large business crowd that was there getting lunch and watching the Big 10 game. The staff is pleasing, polite, and professional. Kids like it due to their own brewed... More

I ate here because I was staying within walking distance. From the outside, it looked kind of boring and quiet. Once inside however, there was a few minute wait to be seated and it was very much alive! I sat at the bar and the service was very quick and attentive. The food was very good and served quickly.

Great restaurant. The German influence makes it a fun place with a different variety of food options that makes it stand out. Their homemade sodas were a hit with the kids. The beer our party had, Abbey Triple and Mai Bock, were pretty good. Although I was a little disappointed and surprised when they told me they were out of... More

Sprechers have a wide variety of craft beers. The Abby Triple is a great super premium done in a Belgium style. The food is above average and there is a wide selection of appetizers and specials. The service was friendly and fun. The happy hour is great. There is a huge outdoor patio that looks like a resort. I'll be... More
