4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

Just stopped by for a large beer after walking around. Nice place to sit & relax at the outside tables in good weather.

“The crowd loves it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We were here on a warm October Friday night and place was completely packed. All though just beside a miniature park (Frances Green), the Biergarten itself is a concrete affair, fenced in like a basketball court. The usual long tables and wooden benches don't do anything extra for the place. It is the crowd that does it: a happy bunch of 20-70 year olds having a great time. The selection of (German) beers is quite limited, the simple food tasty but overpriced.

“Good value and tasty beer but over priced food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Met a friend here recently for a beer and had not eaten the whole day and was very hungry, ordered the Bratwurst pack which was basically 17 dollars for two bratwurst, a few curried potatoes which did not have much flavour to them. I would think they could have given more potatoes for that price.
The beer was nice, being San Francisco it was chilly and provide you with blankets which was nice. But who knows when they get cleaned. I would go back for the beer but whilst the food was tasty, I thought it was a tad overpriced for what it was. My friend had ordered the pulled pork sandwich which was tasty.

“Great outdoor patio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is a great place to drink a beer on a sunny SF day. The beer selection changes and you can find good German beer and imports on tap. Also, Suppenkuche dishes are served on the patio. Doesn't get much better than that! Expect a long wait to get in if the day is warm and it's a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday!
