Been to many bier gardens in Germany. This is a really fun place to meet friends, have some yummy drinks and food. Service was excellent. Wish we had this restaurant in Socal.

In walking in the aromas of fine, fresh food welcomed me and the hostess immediately came to seat us. The front dining room is very comfortable. There are sparkling clean windows all across the one wall giving a lovely view of the patio, I especially liked the view while slipping my green tea mojito. The back dining area has a... More

Looking for a little bit of Bavaria with some local flavors as well this is the stop. Good hearty faire, great beer selection and good complimentary wines. Worth a visit and great outside seating on a warm Bay Area day!!

My mother was German, we lived near Yorkville in NYC--the German area of NYC, so I am well versed with German fare. Speisekammer really does hit the mark quite well on the entrees that my German familied husband and our friend had. My sauerbraten was delish: full of flavor, tender and piping hot. The red cabbage soft and piquant. The... More

Split the Grilled Meat plate with my teenage son. Plenty of food for us. Pork chop was very good, Most of the sausages were good, but not the best I've had. Liked the sauerkraut and red cabbage. Not a lot of gluten-free choices, but it was nice that they were labeled.

Excellent German-style food, good beer selection (also radlers), great staff, indoor & outdoor seating, live music on weekends. Love their potato pancakes, weiner schnitzel, sauerbraten, family meat platter if larger group. It's a fun place, with consistently good food, a must when you're in Alameda.

This has become one of our regulars in Alameda (our home away from home). We were here for dinner two nights ago and as always the food and service were excellent. I had a half order of (my staple) snitzel with mushroom sauce, my partner had sauerbraten ( I thought our son had ribs but I don't see that on... More

This past Sunday we rolled up to Speisekammer for dinner after the movies. We snagged the last parking spot in their lot that accommodates about 10 cars. After checking in at the hostess stand we were ushered to the back room and the back table. There were a couple of large and load groups in this area. We asked her... More

We really enjoyed the "common" tables and benches outside. Lots of great Deutsche drafts. We like the Dunkels which are similar (if not the same) to stouts. Big portions so get an appetizer or two and share a salad and entrée. Lots of fresh flavors

I came here for lunch with a group of friends to pick up a boat in Alameda. We sat at the patio on a warm sunny day, and it reminded me of small beer gardens in German towns and villages. The beer selection was fairly extensive. After finishing my first beer, I asked the waitress if they make a radler;... More
