“What a find and worth the wait.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Recommended by our hotel we visited Max Stark at 6pm on a Saturday night. The place was buzzing! Had to wait for a space to stand. The beer was very good and after a wait we were seated. The waiter recommended the pork chop (HUGE!!!!) at a bargain price. Although we were the only non-locals in the place we were treated with the same great service. Would highly recommend you seek out this place and be patient and wait for a seat.

“fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We found this place on trip adviser and we were not disssapointed. This seemed like a rough and ready sort of place but do not be deceived the food is first class an the portions are over generous. If you have never been to Cologne you must realize how proud the locals are of their local beer Kolsch and the Kolsh served here is. outstanding. My wife who is not a beer drinker was downing glasses off the stuff with the best of the locals

“Real nice atmosphere and good food. Close to Marriott”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This is a good restaurant to visit if you are staying at the Marriott. Opposite direction to the city centre but only a couple of minutes away. Good food (perhaps some it was a bit too salty and their focus is definitely the meat) and service.Well priced and very popular (we went on a Monday and it was full).
