My wife and I happened upon Stieglkeller by accident and are we ever happy that we did! We were in Salzburg for the Christmas Markets and found Stieglkeller on our first day. We liked it so much that we came back two more times! Our first stop was just to take a break from orienting ourselves to old Salzburg. It was later afternoon, so very few people were around. We enjoyed the awesome views overlooking Salzburg along with a couple of their beers. Our second visit was for lunch and it was much more crowded. The offer a good selection of traditional Austrian/Bavarian food and we enjoyed the meal and very good service. Our last visit was again for a couple of beers while catching up in our journals before heading up to wander through the Fortress. We really, really enjoyed this place and will recommend it to anyone traveling to Salzburg.

Loved the beer there. Also had the traditional schnitzel and Schweinebraten. Both was nice, we enjoyed it. Dessert wasn't our taste, was called Salzburger Nockl.

A beautiful spot for afternoon or evening refreshment with a stunning panoramic view of the city from the hillside below the Festung Hohensalzburg (Salzburg Fortress). We stumbled upon the upper level of the beer garden after exploring the nearby convent and enjoyed a lovely Sunday afternoon sipping beer with bread dumplings & mushroom sauce, German potato and cabbage salads. At the mid-afternoon time we were there, the waiter was able to serve only drinks and dessert, while other food was only available through self-service at an indoor cafeteria line, which caused some confusion, even though we had a family member who speaks fluent German. The service was ok, food was quite acceptable but not amazing, though the remarkable location made up for any other deficits.

The food is good, the rooms are interesting and the views when the weather is good are nice. They serve a few Stiegl beers here but there are more at the restaurant at the Brauwelt. You will need reservations here for dinner.

We arrived in the evening and asked to sit on the terrace as it was a great view of the old town. They thought we were mad because it was cool but it was fine for us. Food reasonable price and very nice. Great strudel :)
Definitely recommended

My daughter and I ate here on our last evening in Salzburg. It was a Sunday when a number of restaurants are closed. This place is run by the eponymous brewery. It's vast - all wood panelling, high ceilings and antlers on the walls. The staff wear traditional dress. Our waiter was attentive and entertaining. He recommended an organic beer which went down very well. The menu is traditional Austrian hearty fare. But it is done very well - tasty and huge portions. We had beef broth with dumplings followed by Weiner Schnitzel and roast pork with coleslaw. The Salzburg Nockerl dessert to be shared has to be seen to be believed. An enormous meringue concoction designed to look like Salzburg's three mountains served with raspberry sauce. Our waiter was very happy to pose with it for a photo. Brilliant time!

It's a simple restaurant with a simple menu, but the food, the service, and the ambiance is absolutely fantastic!!! All food was freshly prepared, the house beer was delightful, and it was served by a friendly & eager staff....my husband & I highly recommend this Austrian gem!

Went here in the afternoon for lunch because the Augustiner Beer Hall wasn't open until 3 pm. There is a great view of the cathedral from the beer garden/ balcony. It appeared though, that the best tables were being reserved for future dinner services and we sat away from the ledge. The tables were large and tidy, the waitress took our drink order and food was self service. It may have been due to the odd timing, but the crowd was mostly old people and families with little children which detracted from a potential festive atmosphere. To give you an idea on price, the beers were $3.90 euro for a 1/2 liter and we shared potato salad, bratwurst, sauerkraut for $9 euro. Nothing bad to really say about it, but nothing great either.

We went to Salzburg for 3 days, and for sure was the best dish we ate since we arrived.
The beer is just amazing and the view... the best!

They make you work for your beer, here! The brewery is at the top of a rather steep hill, kind of on your way up to Hohensalzburg. It's a climb for sure, but definitely worth the effort.

Oh yeah - you get to the top of the hill, find the entrance to the brewery...and then have to climb a couple of flights to get to the restaurant itself.

We stood at the host stand with a few other parties for several minutes before someone finally came out to help everyone. We weren't there for food, just for beer, so when it was our turn, he directed us to the self-serve bar area near the back.

They have a small sitting area separate from the dining rooms, and a large outdoor patio, which I'm sure is breathtaking in the right weather. (When we visited, it was breathtaking in the "it's so cold, my nose hairs are freezing" kind of way).

There was only one other group in the bar area when we arrived, so we hopped up to one of the open tables and opened their menu to make some hard decisions.

For my first round, I decided to go with a Stiegl-Hausbier Christkindl; my husband went with a Stiegl-Spezial. He went up to the bar to get our drinks while I held our spot at the table. He was gone for a while, and I was confused as to why - I saw one woman step up to the bar ahead of him, and knew she'd come in alone, so I wasn't sure what the hold-up was. Turns out she'd ordered a pint of beer, and had the nerve to give it back to the bartender because there was "too much of a head" on the pour. Apparently the bubbles ruined her Instagram-perfect picture. Or something. Some people's children, I tell you...

At any rate, the Christkindl bier was a holiday special with a flavor profile description that immediately drew me in. On tasting, it had an inviting aroma and deep, slightly nutty flavor that perfectly matched the lovely color.

My second pour was a Stiegl-Hausbier Butterblume; my husband went with an Original Stieglbock. The Butterblume promised butter tones balanced by spicy kicks, all tied together by a malty finish. I was eager to give it a try. On tasting, I found it had really nice sweet tones, which balanced out the slight hoppy finish. It also had a bit of citrus on the palate, which showed up after swallowing.

There were about three or four other beers that I really wanted to try, but we wanted to get back out into the markets before everything started closing up for the night, since we only had one more day in the city. I kind of wish we would have just taken our time at the brewery, as I really enjoyed the beer and the views, and feel like we could have managed all our shopping the next day. Ah, well. Hindsight, and all that.

At least I know I can find some Stiegl brews at liquor stores in my own city. Small consolation, but I'll take it.
