We went there for a fun night and were not disappointed. Beer was great and sitting outside with good music not too loud gives a wonderful atmosphere. Be aware of parking space. There are two more places like that close by and so there are many cars around. You may have to walk a little bit

OMB is a great place to hang out, grab a few beers and have a bite to eat. Their beer is brewed onsite and you sit outside in the courtyard or inside the bar. The outside is pet friendly.

We stopped in at about 3:00 on a Wednesday afternoon looking for a "family friendly" craft brewery and this did indeed fit the bill with the spacious Biergarten outside and Brauhaus inside. It was a bit hot that day for us Yankees so we chose the Brauhasu inside which was still quite comfortable for 7 kids and 3 adults.The clean,... More

Olde Meck is always a good time - particularly in the summer when you can enjoy a cold brew in the outdoor setting. Can get crowded and loud, but that's half the fun.

So, I went to Olde Meck for a business lunch. Probably not why people go there and probably not my first choice for lunch again. I did not take advantage of the German options on the menu but went with a grilled Gouda and tomato sandwich with homemade chips. The chips were a bit greasy/floppy or overdone. The sandwich was...

We had beer and brats in the outdoor beer garden. Plenty of room for kids to run and play, plenty of seating choices. Indoor restaurant has German menu. Outdoor food choices were very limited.
