We were a group of 8 visiting a congress & having dinner after a long day of sessions. The staff is extremely friendly, the food was very tasty & the atmosphere was fun. It was worth the visit!

We were looking for a place for a quick German dinner and a good craft beer and we found it in the lovely town of Ettlingen. The menu is not that big and various as you can maybe find in bigger biergarten, however, the service...is excellent and very quick. The spetzle were excellent like the maultaschen, however the chips were a bit undercooked. I do not recommend the Vogel burger, it is just a piece of meatloaf in a piece of breadMore

Local cuisine and their own beer. They have an awesome beer garden (but make sure you dont walk straight and go into the another restaurant).

Coming here together with a friend, we wanted and of course got some beer - best in town! As we also wanted to take our dinner here, I did not expect the very best, and - of course it wasn't poor, it was ok, but...by far less exciting than the beer. One tip: they often brew a special beer for some time only, like just one month in the year... it is worth to try!More

If you like to eat proper local food on your travels - this is the place! Huge portions, home made food and great beer. We tried schnitzel with spätzle, sausages, sauerkraut and gulas soup and boy it was - 'Lecker'! We struggled with parking around...but the food and beer wiped grumpiness away.More
