Radler is a low-key German bar with small bites and a nice selection of beer. Staff is always extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We live in the area and stop here often for a quick bite and a beer.

Adam and his team always do a great job! I have had the pleasure of enjoying a number of tasty creations from the kitchen at the main restaurant, as well as from their farmers market location on Sundays. Their wurst is definitely the best! #havemeatwilltravel

The Radler is a unique German bar with an excellent selection of beers. I came with friends around 9pm on Friday night. There was a nice crowd playing games and some others eating but it wasn't very busy. Service was a miss on this occasion....More
