This is our go-to place for Schnitzel! They do it right, it's the real thing. Plus great sides, german salads. We choose the half-orders which is plenty of food. Cute authentic atmosphere, relaxed. You've stepped into Berlin!

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.

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!!

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...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....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
