Good traditional German food in a central part of the town with good self-brewed beer. However, it is a bit tourist-oriented and might occasionally be crowded and noisy.

Food was decent but this was the worst beer I have ever had. The hefeweizen was particularly disgusting. I and my coworker had to find a coffeehouse after eating here too get the taste out of our mouth. Several people recommended this place but the beer was disappointing. Food and service and location were fine, but the beer overshadowed everything.

You can't do better for a great brewpub. If you're lucky, you might get to try the Weihnachtsbok, and the Helles brew is also delightful. It's fun sitting with other folks at the big wooden table beside two big copper mash tons, beneath two huge dried bundles of hops. We had mixed sausages with sauerkraut and fried potatoes, excellent, and... More

We went to Vetter's for a quick beer with a group of five, but were not actually served. The waiter was shockingly rude – I'm German myself, in fact, and we're not exactly famous for being over-friendly, but this went beyond anything I've ever experienced in a German restaurant or bar.

Locally brewed beer at economical price ( Eg 1L at 5 euros) - Check Delicious German food - Check Relaxed Ambiance ( The candle-lit tables may confuse you when you peep in, but once inside its a relaxed pub atmosphere; however without the music) - Check In all a great place to try out German beer and Food.

The brewery has a great atmosphere and a good selection of beers. Their beer is very reasonably priced. I recommend trying their selection of 4 x 2 cl beer for a start, since it's about 7 euro, and you get to try out their 33 % beer as one of the samples. I especially liked the weizen beer.

The food was delicious and not too pricey for the price, the beer was phenomenal and the atmosphere was one where you didn't want to leave. I could have stayed in there all night. It's hard to find a seat if you don't have a reservation, so make sure to plan ahead. The reason why I didn't give it an... More

We went to the restaurant on the recommendation of our student tour guide. The schnitzel and sauerkraut was outstanding. the service was fast and efficient. Were were able to order from a English menu. Would highly recommend it.
