What a disappointment... for years we have passed this place on the way to the OBX and with my husband being huge into craft beer and both us loving german/bavarian food we finally made the decision to stop.
The good: large outside seating area that...is pet friendly, we had barely sat down and the waitress brought a bowl of fresh water for my dogs, which was impressive. Menu had a good amount of options on it. Beer menu was thorough and the flight my husband ordered came with a second beer menu that explained each of the samplings and also had fun pictures showing how the beer process works. Waitress was super friendly and greeted my dogs several times and was just overall extremely pleasant.
The bad: the food. I ordered the schnitzel sandwich, and husband ordered the Brooklyn Burger. The schnitzel was practically inedible, super chewy, barely any breading, very dark looking meat. This was no where near a good thin schnitzel patty, burger was decent. Not the best burger I have ever had, sandwich was dry needed more sauce and/or cheese. Overall food was just bad, if we stop again it will be just for the beer can't believe this place has such good reviews for the foodMore
Don't know what more you could ask for. I even asked for a couple of substitutions that didn't cause any concern and were delivered exactly as I ordered. Great service.
We actually stayed in our camper in their parking lot overnight as part of the...Harvest Host program. Gracious hosts and close enough to OBX to allow us the luxury of a leisurely drive to Cape Hatteras tomorrow.More
We didn't eat here,but rather got deli meat , mustard, beer, root beer,& apple strudel to go.Restaurant was busy. There was a viewing area to see the factory/brewery.The restaurant is only a small portion of very large building.There were two live goats in a fenced...area outside.They have t-shirts,steins, etc. for sale.They are using paper bags,not plastic(better for the environment).Apple strudel pastry was too thick.More
I buy my beer here all the time . In my opinion they have the best beer I've ever tasted. If you like dark beer the black radish is to die for. The food is always delicious. The only complaint I have about this place...is that it doesn't stay open that often they close early. By the time I get off a work they are closed. This place has so much potential for functions as well.More
Great stop on way to OBX! Casual and servers are super nice! Had a great turkey rueben and potato soup. Everyone had a good meal and enjoyed the stop. They also have an outside area that has table service and allows dogs!
We began with the Beer and Brat tour, which founder Uli Bennewitz conducts himself. The tour was not what I expected - the usual here's how you make beer and here's a sample - but was much better. Uli discussed his saga of navigating local,...state, and federal bureaucracies, beginning with attempting to start a brewpub, then an illegal business in North Carolina, in a dry town, all the way to today as he works to bring his 200-mile farm-to-table dream to fruition. Uli's commentary is passionate, informative, and entirely enjoyable.
During the tour we sampled the OBX Beer, a Kölsch-style (from Cologne) brew; the Red Ale; and the Black Radish, a Schwartzbier (German dark beer). All of them were great but my favorite remains the one I eventually had at lunch - the Corolla Gold, their version of a Munich-style Helles (think Augustiner, Paulaner, Hofbräuhaus). We also had samples of the Weeping Radish's bratwurst, beer bratwurst, and Andouille sausage, served with curry ketchup and the Radish's new German sweet mustard. The sausages were amazing and it will be very difficult to go back to the processed varieties at the local supermarket.
We stayed for lunch afterwards and all three of us had the 3 Sausage Sampler, which comes with sauerkraut and a giant pretzel. We all chose the bratwurst, beer bratwurst, and apple bratwurst and were not disappointed. The sauerkraut was good, as was the red cabbage I'd gotten as an extra side. We ate at the bar, largely to have access to beer refills, and the service was excellent. My only disappointment was that the fantastic sweet mustard is not available in the restaurant. It's only available for sale in the retail area, though hopefully as they increase production that will change.
We loved everything so much we bought a package of beer bratwurst to grill ourselves and a minikeg of Corolla Gold to wash it down.More
Made the trip from Corolla to the Weeping Radish and we weren't disappointed. We had the sausages and Reuben and enjoyed both of them. I enjoyed the flight of beers (Black Radish was a favorite) and my wife liked the root beer. We had the...chance to meet the owner at Whalehead Wednesday where they were offering tastings and enjoyed learning about the history of the Weeping Radish.More
