A large group of us visited Ludwigs for an evening meal, and had a great time. The food was very good, with fast service, but the beer was excellent. A good choice of German beers available in various sizes up to a 2 little boot!!

Ludwig's has inside and outside (Bier Garten) seating. Inside is mostly long picnic-bench-like tables that you share with other people, as you would in some restaurants in Germany. The server we had was very friendly, helpful and efficient. There are not a lot of options...More

Great German beer and selection of Austrian wines. The food was very nice. We had pizza, pretzels and sliders. There is an outdoor patio and banquet hall. The staff were fabulous. Two thumbs up.
