Went here because it's considered to be one of the oldest restaurants around Nuremberg (since the 15th century). It's easy to spot near St Sebald Church and on the way to the Nuremberg castle. The inside is cozy as tables are close to each other. There are large tables to accommodate large parties, and it seems when we were there, families of 7-8 were there. The place feels like a pub with wooden decor and the floors divided into rooms (each named after what I assume are historical people). We were greeted by a waitress as soon as we walked in and were seated immediately. The English menu is after the German menu, and there was no problem with communicating with the waiters/waitresses.
We ended up ordering the 6 Nuremberg sausages and the ox cheek special dish. The sausages are okay, but we thought the outdoor stand for the Bratwursthäusle was the best around Nuremberg. The ox cheek was topped with lingonberries and served with wine-sauerkraut and a potato dumpling; this dish was delicious and probably makes me choose very good instead of average for the restaurant.
They serve Tucher beer, which is locally brewed, and goes well with the food. I ordered the dark beer, which is a little sweet and appropriate for the winter cold. My wife had the wheat beer, which was light but very gassy. The beer is nothing to celebrate but suits the scene.
Based on the trip advisor reviews, there seem to be many other great restaurants. This is decent to say you went somewhere old, and to have what I see (and been told) typical Bavarian cuisine. The prices are okay and not terribly high for going out. They only take cash.
