I am German and this place is authentic. The sausages on the sausage platter (an excellent choice) tasted the same as if I were eating a wurst on a German train platform. Great selection of beer and very friendly waitstaff.

My appetite for German food and its historic restaurants knows no bounds, and Red Lion didn't disappoint. The interior is sureal, with artifacts that probably haven't been disturbed for 20-30 years. Beer was better than the food, and both were good. Had the sausage platter,...More

Cool atmosphere on the roof bier garden. We reserved a table for 10 and it barely accommodated. The seating wasn't very comfy and we were squished together. The service however was great. All the servers were very attentive. Food is good. The appetizers are the...More

We visited this tavern/restaurant just before Christmas. We ordered the sausage platter and a pretzel. The sausage platter was served with a variety of sausages, mild peppers and pickles. It was a nice variety for three people to enjoy as an afternoon large snack. We...More

We were visiting my brother in LA and they suggested drinks here as they are frequent guests. There is quite an impressive schnapps and Bier list, all authentic. The smells from the kitchen were irresistible, so we ordered some food too, some of the best...More
