In all fairness we probably should have tried the beer and German food, especially given the other reviews. However, we ate on the patio (nice live music) and ordered barbecue. Will not go back for the food. The meat (brisket and ribs) tasted dry and reheated, no barbecued (smoky) flavor Although we asked for spicy sauce (choice was between sweet and spicy) the sauce was sickly sweet. If we got what we ordered, can't imagine what the sweet sauce tasted like. Sides uninspiring. Service really slow even though nobody else was eating, only drinking (should have been a red flag for us). But servers were friendly, as was the resident weimeraner. They appear to allow pets outside.

Resident weimaraner is affectionately known as the Beer Garden Dog. Like you, we were not thrilled with our BBQ presentation in 2014. For 2014, we have scaled back the offerings (pub food), and likewise scaled back the prices. The food is not necessarily better, but the value is. Hope to have you again as a guest.

This upstairs restaurant has a dining room and an enclosed balcony with windows that open to let in the mountain-fresh air. The welcome we received and the very friendly and efficient service were top-notch. And the food (we both opted for Wiener Schnitzel) was truly authentic. As good as any we have had in Europe.

Live bands from 7-10pm. Great service and people! Nice place to hang out alone as a couple with no children around in the evenings.

We do offer a great variety of live music. as many as 5 acts each summer weekend. And we are an all-ages venue (until 11pm). Glad you enjoyed your visit!

Fun place to enjoy beer, barbecue, music, and dogs! Ended up there several times during our stay. Very fun--you won't be disappointed.

Casual and laid back "Hangout type of place for decent food and drinks. Pub style food with some German items as required for Leavenworth. Good selection of local beers, wines, and spirits (careful of the moonshine). Bartenders were friendly and amusing, fun to joke around with and made the visits enjoyable. Good variety of seating choices from benches, chairs, stools, couches, to meet your needs. They even let people bring their dogs in, which gave it that homey feel. Live music the night we were there (Winston & the Churchill's), with no cover charge. Not a high class, fancy type of place just a good working class hangout. I'm sure when the weather turns nicer, the place can get really hopping with the outdoor patio/beer garden. We will make another trip this summer to hangout.

Thanks for the feedback. Our menu is brand new as of June. All BBQ. With most of the meat prepared on site from fresh. Pitmaster Jordan runs the show now. And the food is much, much better!
