Good German meals like my Grandmother used to make, brought back great memories as a child. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Selection of beer and authentic matching steins is very impressive. If you enjoy German beers they have a large selection of beers on tap. Enjoy a great meal. I would recommend reservations.

Every meal is memorable. With friends, with family, or just us. The availability of smaller portions is a welcome feature for some of us older folks. This is German food for people who think they don't like German food. The beer selection is also outstanding. Good value, also.

The food is very good. The music is fun with Bay Area bands. The clientele is friendly and enthusiastic. The service is very good. It's a fun place to go for dinner and music.

The atmosphere at Speisekammer varies from noisy to pleasant depending on where one dines. While the front bar area can be noisy, the back room with the fireplace is quiet and comfortable. Most of the dishes offered are meat dishes and there is a good vegetarian ratatouille with a carrot sauce which is worth coming back for if you are... More

I wanted this place to be great, I really did. The Good: Great Outside Biergarten, Great Environment, Great Music, Great Service. The Average - Food. I'm not picky, but it should be better execution of the entrees than I've experienced over the 3 times I've dined here. Beers? Flat & Lukewarm...and I love German Beers. Food? The Jaeger Schnitzel was... More

This is the best German restaurant we've experienced to date. We love the service, the food, the beer and cocktail selection are incredible and the live music is a special treat. If you love your family and friends you ought to meet here.

As a person of habit, I usually order the schnitzel. This time, however, I ordered the jäger schnitzel (schnitzel with mushroom sauce). While I prefer the schnitzel plain, both are terrific. Service is always good. And, of course, if you like beer, there are plenty of good choices.

We were a large group and we had a great time. Food is tasty. You can get half orders for less expense and the drink menu has lots of beers, wine and cider. There was live music which was fun too. This place is very popular and busy. I had the bratwurst and sauerkraut which was so good. I recommend... More

Really good, hearty food, extensive beer list (husband loves this), accommodating service, and fun live music! We have been here many times and always enjoyed ourselves. The German food is very authentic and portions are large, but you can always order half sizes for most entrees. The outside patio is terrific, the bar area can be a little noisy but... More
