“beer! beer! beer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Came here for St. Patty's Day since we live close by. The decor inside is pretty cool. My husband commented that it really reminded him of an authentic beer hall in Germany. There are a lot of beer options and the best part is the prices are pretty cheap (esp considering its location). Our waitress was really nice however the hostess was not the friendliest. Other than that I would definitely recommend this place.

“super fun place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a great all-ages kind of place. It is loud, but so big that it is not too crazy. It gets packed inside, but the service is quick and friendly. Bocce ball courts had 3 hour wait at 5:00 PM on a Sat. Line out the door by 6:00.
Food was good (we just had appetizers). Beer is better.

“Festive atmosphere - OK food - friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Von Trapps is a German restaurant, American bar and Italian bocce courts all rolled into one.They specialize in German food. Von Trapps has that college energy buzz from the local college crowd and is a great place for a festive party or a few drinks. It is bustling and a little noisy but borders on an 'Oktoberfest' atmosphere. The service was super friendly and efficient. My partner loved his food, but I found the Spaetzle (the German answer to mac and cheese) to be doughy and tasted like a bit flour-y and the price a bit higher than I thought it should be. Since it is in a deeply urban part of the city, count on parking a block or two away. Fun for bocce lovers and an outing with friends, and good for people watching. The food was decent and I'd go back since I live here.

For fabulous German food in Seattle, try Heidelberger Haus (subdued, more elegant, spendier, and outstanding food, more upscale experience) or Bratz in the U-district (easier parking, indoor picnic tables, German pop music, lower prices, larger quantities, closed Sundays - quality German fast food!)
