We were rather disappointed. The beer was good, but the schnitzel just didn't measure up to our 13 years in Germany. Seating was long family tables which was awkward when we had to repeatedly get up to let people in or out of their seats. At least in Germany the benches had no backs and you could climb over the...

We site says "free beer, no strings attached" Fridays at 6 pm u til keg run dries! This was not our experience and we were a group of 10. In order to get two very small plastic glasses of beer you had to give the bartender $1 per beer! If he served 245 glasses, that is $245! It was called... More

They have very authentic German food and beers. All fresh. Made fresh to order. It's right on the trendy Pier Park plaza so the atmosphere reflects that but the food is great. They even have an accordion player playing nice German music.

If you like a German beer garden atmosphere, good beer, good food, friendly wait staff and perpetual Oktoberfest going on, then you will like this place. Quiet and subdued it is not. We really enjoyed lunch and dinner here.

We have been wanting to visit this place for some time now. Today turned out to be the day for us. Sat outside and enjoyed a couple mugs of German lager to go with our meterwurst and potato pancakes. Everything was very good. Service was excellent. Sorry it took us so long to visit but we will return.

After patronizing several local bars and restaurants where they know how to give you a cold beer and hot food, this place was disappointing. Beer had a huge head on it(OK, I guess I can accept that) and wasn't cold. The knockwurst with sauerkraught was barely warm and hardly has any sauerkraught on it(what is cheaper than sauerkraught?) French fries... More

They have authentic German beer as well as other beers to chose from. The menu is also authentic German, but if you want a burger you can talk then into one. Typical German Beer Garden seating inside and out. They have a patio out back and one in the front of the restaurant.

Cold Beer and fantastic atmosphere. Always a fun place to spend a Friday evening and much better than Tootsies which has the warmest beer in Panama City Beach

Authentic concept and attention to detail. The food wasn't the best German food I've had, but it was decent. I had a schnitzel and it was good. Beer was good. I've giving a 3-1/2 very good rating due to the location right in the middle of beach seafood places and being the only German place around (that I know of).... More
