We come here a couple times a year and always have an enjoyable time. I can recommend the strawberry beer punch for the ladies. It may sound a bit strange, but it is delicious. The food is fairly good. It has never let us down,...More

Vetter’s has the best schnitzel I’ve ever had in my life! The atmosphere is very friendly and the staff was patient with our inability to speak German. My brothers really enjoyed the beer and sausages. I had the meatloaf, which, as the server informed me...More

We two couples spent a short break in Heidelberg and twice enquired at the Brauhaus about booking a table. It looked like a nice restaurant to enjoy local cuisine. On both occasions we were given ‘short shrift’ by a member of staff. This person was...More

My husband had the flight of beer and loved the "dunkle". There was nothing outstanding with my Radler, the spaetzle or the wurst but the oven fried potatoes were quite tasty. It is all about the view of the bridge and people watching.
