Beer Garden

Beer garden with very good and cheap food, f.e. chicken, knuckle, salad, tarte flambe, etc. Unfortunately, a lot of times, there is no more roasted chicken since it is sold out already early in the evening.

Went with a group from work for an informal visit. A mixture of some locals and guests from overseas. Overall the restaurant is ok but is more of large dining room that doesn't have a great atmosphere, just a place to go and have a quick meal and drink. The beers were very good and the food average cafeteria style.... More

Visited this beer house twice in one week. Food is very good value for money. Typical German cruisine made simple and always tasty. Beer of the house changed every month or so (Please check on their website). We were offered white or brown beer and of course I went for white. During my visit was a winter beer period, the...

The place is nice and the beers good, but the menu is really little for the lunch and also the weekly menu is always the same. In the last period we are not going anymore there because you have to eat always the same. They should change a bit the variety of the weekly menu.

Here you can have one of the best beers, brewed by themselves. You will have your drink in an old cinema, where I saw films 30 years ago. Here I sit once a month together with my friend and we call it "Stammtisch"

It is a beer garden type place with a slightly more modern looks to it. The beer is good and there is plenty of it to choose from. The food reminded me of my old uni canteen in Goettingen - alright but not really impressive. Fried chicken, burger, chips, veal cutlet etc I understand it is tough to make a... More

I visited this place a couple of times during my business trip. The food is pretty good here. The beer is good as well but a but too heavy for my liking. This place has many seats so waiting for a place to sit was not an issue. The wait staff is friendly and some can speak English which is... More

I've been there two times and I liked it. The food assortiment isn't big, although they have weekly changing menus. Not expensive. What I liked much is beer. They brew it directly in the building. And I liked gulaschsuppe. The second time I ordered it. The first one was kind of sour. And what is nice - the portions were... More

After-work dinner worked good for me here. With a few beers (home brewed) and some quick food, they just bought me! Quick service, great ambience (quite spacious). Well recommended!

Restating the obvious, people like different beer. Personally I prefer many many types of Bavarian brew but also love Kölsch from the west and Radeberger from the east. Vogel is way below those brewing standards. It could be their relatively short history from 1980s or plain wrong recipe. Their pills is way too sour while their wiess is just ok... More
