We gave OB's Brau Haus a try with a GroupOn. It was a Friday night (early, the place filled up by 6). Wife ordered fish, me the Jager Schnitzel. Large order of beer battered haddock and fries, good portion of the schnitzel. We had the german streusel for desert/split, good. I believe the place is a micro brewery, I only... More

We had a group of about 8 come for a birthday dinner. The service from Christine was great (as usual) and they made us feel at home. I had the Jaeger Schnitzel which was cooked well and delicious. One of the party who doesn't typically like German food really enjoyed the meatballs in rahm sauce. If you like micro brewed... More

Great food and great service! I got the meatballs and spaetzle and it was delicious. Too bad it was so filling that we didn't have room for apfel strudel-next time for sure!

This place is incredible. The service, the beer and the food were all top notch. The cheese spaetzel was incredible, as we're the cheese curds and fried pickles!

Don't let the outside fool you. There is great food, drink and friendly staff inside. The jagerschnitzel was awesome topped off with apple strudel with vinilla sauce for dessert. Sampled several of their beers as well. Lager, pilsner and dopplebock all well made and went well with dinner. I defenitly recommend stopping in.

A nice place to visit, with good (but not great) german food. Having lived in Germany for many years, I wanted to try this place. Had the schnitzel, which was good. However, the noise level was really too much. Not sure if I will go back.

We had dinner here and were both very impressed with our meals. I had the Saurbraten and was very pleased. She had the Schnitzel and loved it. The prices are low for what you receive in portion size and quality of the products. Our waiter was very nice and even spoke a little German with us. We also enjoyed some... More

Although the food was very good and the bartendeter where I ate was good, I did not appreciate the employees eating (sharing a steak) next to me and the girl kept slamming her glass literally in front of me every time she took a drink of her Mountain Dew, probably would not go back.
