I have visited this place at least a dozen times over the years and it never disappoints. This restaurant has been serving bratwurst since 1313 at this location. I recommend going for lunch where you sit snugly at communal tables.

I've read other reviews saying it was too touristy and rushed for dinner. This is not the place to go for a leisurely, quiet dinner--NO, this place is packed with tons of tourists and YES, locals. It's a whirl of activity: the huge grill in the center is flaming & smoking the tiny bratwurst over beech wood, the taps continually flow with delicious beer, the wait staff (wearing traditional trachten) are efficiently delivering piping hot pewter plates of Franconian (the region) fare.

There is a bread/pretzel basket on the table, you may help yourself--they will ask you if had bread, then charge you for the pieces. This is common practice throughout Germany.

Go for the food, go for the atmosphere, go for the history, just GO!

A must visit restaurant for a plate full of the famous local Nuremberg sausages. A great location for exploring the old town. An intimate and when we visited very busy restaurant, so be prepared to wait for a table. Order a dozens sausages and they come on a heart shaped plate!

While the bratwurst and potatoes did taste nicely, this place is definitely a tourist oriented place. Did not see many locals. On the plus side, the location is very good. On the down side, the dishes are basic and not inexpensive. On the night that we were there, the waiting staff were rushed and we did get the feeling that they wanted us to hurry up. We may come back though to give it another try.

This is THE place to experience the famous Nuremberg Sausages. A little bit touristy but worth the visit. As a matter of fact it is the first place I visit when I go to Nuremberg. Get six mit potato salad und bier; batteries recharged, it's off to all my favorite Old Town haunts. If you are lucky you will be seated with someone who speaks your language and have a pleasant exchange. LOVE THIS PLACE.

We stopped off here for lunch one day and I must say that the Nuremburger Wurst (sausages) were excellent.

The place was busy and based on the quality one can see why. Service was good an attentive, and the clothes are traditional Bavarian.

Inside is very nice, done like an Alps cottage although as it was summer then we sat outside.

Definatley worth a stop for lunch or a snack.
