The beer is tasty and it is being offered with (partly) local cuisine. This is a nice place to have dinner with 2 or a group of people. The service was fast and the quality of the food was good. I had an enjoyable evening.

This place has good food, a really nice outdoor area and even better beer. We had a special beer at the time that was brewed at the brewery and was very tasty! The food prices are not expensive and the portion sizes are good. The only criticism I have is that the waitress was not overly friendly and my food... More

After having being served drinks, we were told we could not order food because there were to many customers and only two people in the kitchen. I was offered to go and see the kitchen to confirm, but as this would not being me any closer to getting fed, I kindly refused... At 11 the kitchen closed for good and... More

Hmmhh, from time to time, I like to come here, mostly for a beer only or a small snack. Yesterday with an old friend we decided to have a real dinner, and also enjoyed the best beer in town - As I judge this beer from their micro-brewery. Service was good as food, and beer outstanding as usual.

Good selection of local foods, great salads, good locally brewed beers, and reasonable prices. What more do you need to know? Oh, friendly service, too! Go there.

Beer and german specialities very tasty! It's an artisanal brewery with also seasonal beers and serves german specialities in a nice Biergarten. Käsespatzle were really appreciated and the quality of raw food is really worth the price!

I was here last week with work colleagues. We watched the football game (italy vs spain) and enjoyed the local special beers. It was a great experience. The food is ok but the beer is fantastic - i had a red beer and Hefeweizen which was perfect for the summer evening. We had the pretzels with cheese and mustard -... More

No matter which branch you go to, Durlach, Ettlingen or Karlsruhe, you're in for a really fine micro brew. Vogel unfiltered Pilsner is an institution. The food is ok, but that's not the reason to go.

My colleagues and I met here for an informal dinner during a business trip to Karlsruhe. We enjoyed the plentiful informal outdoor seating, the excellent German food and the patient service. We had colleagues from France, uk, Germany and China so we had varied needs. I had a huge portion of schnitzel and fries, and the other dishes were well... More

The food was pretty average, as was the beer, but the staff was amazing. And I don't mean average is a bad way -- just as similar to other reasonably good food in the area. But did appreciate that staff.

Thank Russell M
