“Friendly Folks, good Bavarian Food”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

We Chose to eat at Gasthaus Brauwastl one night due to its proximity to the lodge we were staying at in Garmisch. It was a couple days before we were to fly out and had turned in our rental car so with us being on foot, a 700 yard walk from the Edelweiss Lodge seemed better than a 10 Eruo cab ride to downtown.

The first thing we noticed upon entering was that the place was filled with local Germans. This is always a good sign. There was some sort of game being played in a corner that was seemed a cross between pool and bowling. Without understanding much of the conversation it was quite entertaining still. Hmmm dinner and a show.

We were greeted warmly by the traditionally dressed waitress and soon had drinks in hand. Due to the chill of the evening, my bride chose the grog which was hot tea with rum. It more than does the trick she reports. I of course stuck with my trusty mug of Dunkel. Please see the attached pic for the allotted times for Happy Hour.

The food was not fancy but it was of very good quality and our waitress was always ready to get us more drinks when we were running dry. Her and my wife actually exchanged girly giggles and gab for a bit.

The next time we are in town, we will be back.

See you on the trail and remember, don't be one of "those."

“Great cozy place for German food”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We are repeat customers to this restaurant whenever we stay in Garmisch. The food is traditional German. The family that runs it is very nice. It's a small place and has never disappointed us.

“Great local inn”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

On my first trip to Garmisch, I wandered into Brauwastl because it was fairly close to where I was staying. From then on, it has been a go-to every time I come back to Garmisch.

The service is exactly what you should expect at a German restaurant, attentive without being overbearing. The food is not fancy at all, it is traditional German dishes. Very good and very filling. Everything from the schnitzle to the spatzle is very well done. The dining room always has locals in it, which is always a good sign in a tourist area like Garmisch!

In the summer they open up the outside seating area, which is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening. They even have live music playing on the weekends during the summer (Saturday evening, if I'm not mistaken).

Overall this is one of our favorite places in Garmisch due to its great food and service. It is a great place to take in the local atmosphere!

“Stopped by for Breakfast, became regulars for Dinner”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Went for a walk to find breakfast and opened the door. The place was empty, but it was only 10:30 am. The kind staff feed us an amazing breakfast, and we knew we had to come back for dinner.
The quality of the service, food and value are amazing.
If you don't like having an amazing meal and saving money, you shouldn't come here.
Thank you!! From Alaska

“Our go-to place in Garmisch”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We've been to this restaurant quite a few times and we have always enjoyed ourselves. No matter what time of day we walk in, they are pleased to see us and they seem to love when we bring the kids in. The food is not fancy, but it's very tasty and the portions are nice, and the prices are very reasonable. I recommend the roast pork and red cabbage or the cordon bleu-- both very tasty and filling The decor and seating arrangements are great-- it's a bit like eating at Grandma's house (assuming your Grandma is Bavarian and knows what she's doing in the kitchen!) Great happy hour specials advertised and very close to Edelweiss and bus stops. I wish I could give them 4.75 stars, but that's not an option..it's very, very good!!
