I have been going to this place since the original owners attracted locals and tourists. They came from Germany after the war and introduced some of the best schnitzel, etc. to what was a small college town and farmers. It is at the bottom of the "gunks" which is still popular for mountain climbing and hiking; those driving to the Catskills passed by too before the Thruway was built. They expanded the one room into the place it is today, complete with a bar.

It remains a family restaurant with a home cooked flavor, right down to the hamburgers. Faces and names have changed over the years, but the tradition goes on. There are times I can imagine Emil and Kitty still being there.

I doubt anyone is ever sorry they stopped. Good place to restore your perspective.

Big disapointment, we went here for our Daughters Birthday she has been to Germany and wanted German Food for her Birthday. Everything started out fine drinks, apps. bread & salad.
After that we sat for about 45 minutes watching other people getting food even ones that came after we did. Our server kept saying that our order was comming...and when it finally did about 45 minutes later, it was kind of cold and the vegies on my Daughter primavera were a bit undercooked. Don't know what happened?? But this will go on our list of been there, done that, but never return. No explaination was ever given as to the wait for the main course! We did not even stay for desert! Sorry Mountain Brauhaus for this review, but people need to know.

We love this place. This time was our second visit and it did not disappoint. All the meals and appetizer were perfect, good comfort food. It did take awhile to get served but i guess home-cooked meals need time. Beer was good as well.

Always crowded. Plan to wait a while even with a reservation. Bar area can be very crowded as well. Service sometimes suffers from the large crowd but the food is out of this world. Avoid going there in a larger group. Really delicious!

Went with friends for a mutual anniversary dinner. A Wednesday night (they are closed Mon. & Tues.) & by 7:00 p.m. all tables were full with locals. Food & service is always good, plentiful, & unrushed. Authentic German cuisine! Weekends are packed; so expect a wait. Portions are large & nice selection of beers & the raisin pumpernickle bread is to die for.
