“Bit of Bavaria in the Hamptons....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Went there with my wife as we drove by and made a quick decision to try it out late in the evening around 9pm when other places were shutting down. The setup inside is like a Bavarian beer hall. Tall ceiling, long wooden tables and benches and communal seating. We had a great conversation with another couple sitting with us. We started off with some Oktoberfest beers. I had the Taunsteiner festbier and she had the Paulaner Oktoberfest beer. We each shared a bratwurst platter with 6 various types of sausages serves with red cabbage sauerkraut and with a size of spatzle with brown gravy. The meal was quite filling and we topped it off with a Kaiserschmarn an Austrian/German desert pancake served with fruit sauce. If the urge for German food is calling to you, don't hesitate to make a stop here!

PS - Found out later this is the second location. The original is in the East Village in NYC.

“What's not to like?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Starting on a purely selfish note, I was very happy to find Schlenkerla Rauchbier being sold here.
One of the best beers in the world (in my opinion).... but very smokey. Takes a bottle to get used to it if you've never had it before.
Very good range of other beers here too and it was nice to have confidence that the lady serving us knew just what she was taking about.
The food was excellent too. Needing something to soak up the beer, we went for the Wurstplatte. Didn't look much for the money, but very, very filling. Almost left no room for beer!!
Very friendly place, really good atmosphere and good food. You've got to try it. Prost!

“Great happy hour spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Stopped in recently after arriving in Montauk for a couple of days. For an off season Sunday night the place was full of locals and others like us. We sampled a couple of the German beers on tap. The selection was abundant considering the location. The food coming out of the back looked hearty and delicious. Happy Hour specials are a great. Even though it is a German beer garden, Zum is a can't miss in MTK.

“Ganz Gut! Danke Schein!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Home cooked German food the way my mother used to make!! Sauerbraten with Bread Dumplings like no other place. Potato Pancakes were perfect for the kids. Many German Beers to choose from. The restaurant was set up like a beer hall. Family run and very comfortable.
