Having enjoyed a meal here last year and noticing how busy the restaurant was, we booked ahead by email, got a positive reply and turned up looking forward to sampling the menu's local specialities. Alas, our booking had not been noted in the book and we were offered seats in the very crowded brewhouse part of the premises, where a short version of the menu operates.
So instead of dinner with wine we tucked in to lyoner sausage salad and a baked potato with (tasteless) cheese, washed down by the Stiefel's own unfiltered beers (the light being tastier than the dark). Our waitress was most attentive despite being run off her feet (more staff needed?) and this, along with very reasonable prices and a lively ambience, partly made up for our initial disappointment.
Recommended, but don't trust their booking system!

I visited Saarbrucken two weeks ago and one of my friends took me to this restaurant to try the Saar food ... I just love that restaurant! and the food is just delicious and with big quantity! They make their own beer so make sure not to miss it. I really enjoyed this restaurant.

The "Stiefel" is a restaurant with typical german brewery interior. They serve local beer and typical german and "saarland" food! Especially in the evening or at the weekend reservation is recommended. I can recommend this restaurant to everyone who stays in Saarbrücken and wants to try some local beer and food!

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant and we were so happy we went back a second time! The staff was great and so helpful. The food was great! Now if you are looking for anything other than great regional food go someplace else! If you are looking for great regional food and drink this is your best bet in Saarbrucken. The price is very reasonable. We can highly recommend the Saarland Saurbraten and the pork dishes.

A friendly atmosphere and generous portions of home-style cooking. Excellent braised veal. table staff were over-stretched the night we were there but the cook was cheerfully coping with the orders and acknowledging thanks.
