A nice place to visit, with good (but not great) german food. Having lived in Germany for many years, I wanted to try this place. Had the schnitzel, which was good. However, the noise level was really too much. Not sure if I will go back.

We had dinner here and were both very impressed with our meals. I had the Saurbraten and was very pleased. She had the Schnitzel and loved it. The prices are low for what you receive in portion size and quality of the products. Our waiter was very nice and even spoke a little German with us. We also enjoyed some... More

Although the food was very good and the bartendeter where I ate was good, I did not appreciate the employees eating (sharing a steak) next to me and the girl kept slamming her glass literally in front of me every time she took a drink of her Mountain Dew, probably would not go back.

My wife and I have traveled extensively in Germany, so anytime we have a chance to enjoy German cuisine here in the states, we grab it! We brought two couples with us to OB's Brau Haus in Appleton, hoping we would find some flavors simile to what we've enjoyed in Germany. For the most part, we weren't disappointed. The menu... More

Great service...home cooked food. Large portions. Can't wait to go back thank you for a great meal. I had the meatballs and Greg had the schnitzel of the house. Both were served very hot and quickly.

We chose OB's because it is literally 1/2 block from the Performing Arts Center -- we parked once (on the street, for free) and just walked over to the concert after a FANTASTIC dinner. I don't think it's common for sauerbraten to be made with filet mignon, but that's what I had -- with a "gravy" that complemented rather than... More

My husband and I love this place especially the pork shanks and the goulash !!!! So tasty .... Pork that falls off the bone is always great . We brought my brother in law and his wife here and they were really happy with their dining experience!!!

Thank Lynne K
