We went there on the spur of the moment, looking in part for an alternative to the always-crowded-and-noisy Spiesekammer in Alameda. When we arrived, the place was nearly empty (there were some folks seated outside). I ordered the Brotzeit Sausage Platter, a choice of two...More

First time eating at this restaurant. Went with friends last night. They have a outside patio as well as an inside restaurant. They have an extensive beer menu and my dining companions took advantage it. We shared the potato pancake which was somewhat greasy. My...More

A nice selection of beers, including Belgian and German beers, and a traditional Radler. Traditional German fare, including Kaesespaetzle, Wienerschnitzel, and wursts (sausages).

Been to Brotzeit three times over the past 18 months. The beers and drink are delicious and the food is good (albeit a bit pricey...$12 for an a'la carte sausage on a bun?) when you finally get them. So why the three strikes? The first...More

Nice German meal in casual atmosphere with reasonable price. We had the Schnitzel Plate and were all happy with the food and the service.

This is such a convenient restaurant to the Homewood Suites hotel that I eat here at least once during every trip I take to Oakland. I have never been disappointed in the food or the service. I've had many of the dishes and by far...More
