“One of my favorite places for brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food is delicious, especially the smoked salmon! The service was very good. We are in our 60's so really did not enjoy the music which was pretty loud. In the winter months when you cannot sit outside I definitely recommend reservations.

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

The snitzel was great and the hanger steak was outstanding! Took my parents here and they couldn't stop talking about it.

“Nice Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We ate at Lyon Hall mid afternoon on Sunday and were able to enjoy their brunch selections (at the last minute). The service was great and the food was very very good. It was a relaxed Sunday afternoon crowd, the table area was quiet, there were more people at the bar, but I would not say it was noisy. When we visit Arlington, we will definitely eat here again for dinner, lunch or brunch.

“Enjoyed it Thoroughly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a very different kind of restaurant - a bit noisy, but the food is very very good- very eclectic and non-standard menu. The selection of beers is pehnomenal, and overall adds to the fun of the evening. Our waitress was great! Really helped us make selections and added tremendously to the overall enjoyment of the evening. We are looking forward to returning soon!

“Happy 4-7”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I tried out this spot while close by in Arlington. The menu was varied with several Bavarian/German/Hungarian dishes. The beer and wine selections are above average and each day at Happy Hour a couple of each are featured at a reduced price.
My friend and I each had an imported beer and shared appetizers. The Spaetzle and home made Mini Franks were delicious.
The atmosphere is warm and inviting and it is easy to carry on a conversation at the tables. The bar gets full pretty quickly, so plan to get there as early as possible.
If you arrive early enough you may even be able to park right out in front on Washington!
