We went to Bruno's for a birthday and will return soon. My son just spent a month in Germany so we were excited to see if this little place stacked up with his experience in the old country. We all order something different. As always...More

Bruno's is truly authentic and we really loved eating here. My husband is German and he practically moaned through his whole meal. I don't particularly love beets but the borscht was incredible.

Bruno's used to be very close to us, and was one of our most regular stops. (Citron is at their old site now, and is also worth a visit.) Bruno's consistently has some of the best food in town. Still good, but we (I am...More

Polish sampler was just ok. Polish sampler was so, so. Meal wasn't real warm. Loud in the restaurant. Beer on tap was ok. I wouldn't go back. I'd rather have bratwurst and sauerkraut at home.

We have come to Brunos several times and enjoy it tremendously. The German food is excellent (billed as German and Polish), the German beer even more so and the staff friendly. The Polish dishes are also tasty, and they also have other European beers. They...More

Went here for lunch with a few friends. I had eaten there before they moved to Lakewood. The service was great but the food was average. It's still one of the best places to get authentic German food.
