My wife, two kids and a family friend visited here last night. Both I and my friend have resided in Germany in previous lives so this restaurant was up against two resident critics. Suffice to say they passed with flying Colours. Nothing about the beer or food was faux. Everything was spot on and the service from Alyssa was wonderful.... More

Went with friends after a few days of skiing on the basis that it was supposed to be lots of fun with great food and is right outside the parking lot at Heavenly California Lodge. The place is definitely casual with lots of t-shirts / jeans and kegs stacked against most walls. Place is split in 2 rooms with the... More

Authentic German food, in a location that is fitting. Have you ever had home made pretzels? These guys are doing it right and fairly authentic. The location is tucked away in a neighborhood facing Heavenly resort..stop by dry off, and dip a pretzel into the cheese sauce. We always do!

Such a unique, fun place to eat with a group friends. The tables are set up length-wise for multiple people, the food was great (and there was plenty of it) and the German Champagne was amazing (Schlumberger white). The champagne glasses were HUGE and they even offered to sell them to us. Most importantly the staff was so friendly. Our... More

I have been here a few times and I love it. While the biers are over priced, this is the only place I can get food like my grand parents used to make. The Brussel sprouts are on point and honestly everything is really good. If you're going to come during the winter the parking sucks so be ready to... More

Some friends and I had dinner at Himmel Haus this past weekend during our short stay in South Lake Tahoe, and we all had a really great time. The food was excellent (HUGE portions, though!), and our server made sure we were all well taken care of and having fun during our meal. Great beers on tap, too! I highly... More

I found this place on Google Maps and it resonated right away given my penchant for German food (its in my DNA) From the Beer Hall tables to the friendly (and hip) service to authentic German food this place is running on all cylinders. Dinner was Schweinhaxe (Pork Knuckle) on a bed of sauerkraut and mashed potato alongside a wonderful... More

Had another great German meal at Hummel Haus. Brussel sprouts were great!! Pretzel is huge and delicious. We all had different beers and food ( 4 of us) and enjoyed it all! Pork roast, spaetzel, schnitzel, brats, all wonderful. Will be back again and again. Enjoy the atmosphere...rustic. Nice fire in fireplace too.

Just arrived in South Lake Tahoe and was looking for a quaint little place to have a little dinner. Found this German food place nearby and thought we'd check it out. Right away felt like we were in "Cheers". We were greeted warmly and the service was great! Very friendly place with a fantastic selection of hard to find German... More

My husband and I met up with a friend for dinner here one Monday night in October. It was quiet and we were seated right away and given menus of both food and beer. I ordered the pork schnitzel and it was very well made, tenderized pork steak coated in panko and fried. mmmm... It came with mashed potatoes with... More
