Love this place!! Great environment for all ages. Fantastic German style beer and food. Never had a thing bad here, always friendly and busy but great service. I like that If you need to leave the tab will be charged a 20% tip, which is what we would leave anyway.

unexpected surprise, this biergarten is up there with some great ones from Germany. It has a huge outside garden, ,unfortunately we were there in winter.SO had to be inside. the Beer choice is awesome and so is the food choice. Great atmosphere. Wish they would get rid of TV's as this turns it into more of a sports bar.

This is a great place to eat and drink beer. I loved it. I suggest to be there earlier than peak hours or after since it is hard to find a place specially during the winter time. The pretzel is amazing

Had a tall beer with browsing the different crafts kiosks at the Old Mecklenburg Brewery. Lots of nice crafts and very good beer with a giant crowd on a very cold afternoon. Heaters spotted among the tables and shops outside.

Visited while in town with a group of eight around 7pm on a weekday. The beer selection was great with a variety of options. Not a tremendous amount of choices for German food (basically, sausage, schnitzel, pretzels, sauerkraut)...even had burgers and pizza. We had to change tables three times as it is first come, first served with about 5-6 long... More

This place is definitively unique, the atmosphere is completely different from other places. They have many varities of really good beer and wine. Also ,the food is really good and perfectly pair up with whatever you're eating. I recommend this place to beer lovers.
