“Wasn't sure what i was expecting as we walked in the door...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant side is lit incredibly stark bright so we chose to sit in the bar side. Last tables were by the drafty front door or by the open-plan kitchen. Sat outside the open-plan kitchen; the floor had manky area rugs and food dropped everywhere. (*shivver Seems this is also where the second exit is) Not once did i see anyone wash their hands..
Though a but curt, service was not unfriendly.
Beer was big and cold and tasty.
Sauerbraten arrives (on a plastic plate). So its a brined roast beef with sides of Spatzle and stewed red cabbage. Not the most attractive plate and by itself, each component is rather bland. A bit of each on the fork together makes for a complete bite.
Would i recommend? For the one time visit just so you could say you've tried it, sure. To make this a go-to place, imho, not really.

“Best Restaurant in Hastings, MN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

My favorite restaurant in Hastings, MN is the Bierstube. It specializes in German foods such as ruebens and bratwursts, but my favorite food is the sirloin beef heart steak. They also have a variety of hamburgers, steaks, and other sandwiches. They have many specials each day. On weekdays during the lunch hours, they have a delicious all-you-care-to-eat salad bar with soup, chili, and bread sticks. They have a large selection of drinks, specializing in German beers. The Bierstube is celebrating its 50th year in business.

“Take a dive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I wasn't too impressed with the food at the Bierstube, but we made a stop on a short road trip down to Treasure Island for a concert. It had a wonderful German beer haus atmosphere within it's townie/dive bar type setting with bar games, lots of classic beer lights and more.

“My very favorite in Mpls/St. Paul Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

My favorite restaurant when I am back in Minneapolis. Worth the drive to Hastings. I always order the "heart steak" ....not really a heart, just an excellent beef steak. I can remember when it was under $3.00 many years ago, but now it costs a little more, but it sure beats anything in a fast food restaurant by price and quality. I love the neighborhood corner bar character.
