Enjoyed the casual atmosphere, warm fire, and great beer selection. The service was friendly and prompt. Our meals were tasty with generous portion sizes. Would definitely recommend if you're in the mood for something easy, filling, and a delicious brew.

“Stay away at all costs.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This place should be closed down. The food is terrible. The service is horrendous and insulting. The waiter we had said to my face that he didn't care if we were satisfied or not because he didn't cater to clientele like us. A German restaurant, they ran out of spaetzle at 7 pm. Save your time and go anywhere else.

“Your Belly Will Thank You...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Himmel Haus is serving up the goodness. I am not even a big Yelper but had to write a review after having a few outstanding meals here. For starters, the bier selection is excellent. You can tell that these guys know what they are doing when it comes to putting the drink selection menu together. Then comes the food...generous tasty portions for reasonable prices that leave you very satisfied. Whether you are looking for apres ski or just a dinner out with friends, this is one of the best places in South Lake. Kudos to the owners for staying true to their vision and creating an warm and consistently inviting atmosphere for guests. I will be back!

“Beer was highlight...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Dining here was a BIG mistake!. Spaetzle was good except for it swimming in "butter"... lots of oil for "butter"!. The red cabbage was very lame as my wife makes it frquently... the brats were fine... if you want some good German beer, this is the place. Hungry, forget it! No Weiner Schnitzel or Sauerbrauten on the menu...

“Try the game of the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Great little "hole in the wall' pub/restaurant. More of a fresh local food restaurant than a German place. We had the camel burgers (game burger of the day). They were excellent. Very good selection of German beer.
