They have good bar food but terrific entertainment! We loved it and we love staying at the attached Adventure Inn as well!

We have hosted some 600 music acts since opening. Some are great. Some are just ok. But hardly ever a bad one in the group. More

BBQ Pulled pork & pulled chicken sandwiches were very tasty and recommended dark beer was very good. Ping pong tables were in use so we played shuffle board - a fun time overall.

Our extended family stopped here for a lovely afternoon -- school aged to grandmas-- and appreciated the Bavarian atmosphere, great German pretzels, and boutique beer. The outdoor patio with games and spacious bench seating kept everyone happy. Satisfactory staff. But all the other patrons were also friendly, laughing, shard their children and games, offered to take photos of us, etc.... More

If we look out from the service window and see three generations of people all having a good time at the same time, then we consider it a successful day. Thanks for sharing your family with ours. More

I can only attest to the ambiance and brews, but this place was awesome in both respects! We weren't there during the live music but overheard it one night as we were walking by. This should be on your Leavenworth bucket list if you are there during the warm weather months.

In all fairness we probably should have tried the beer and German food, especially given the other reviews. However, we ate on the patio (nice live music) and ordered barbecue. Will not go back for the food. The meat (brisket and ribs) tasted dry and reheated, no barbecued (smoky) flavor Although we asked for spicy sauce (choice was between sweet... More

Resident weimaraner is affectionately known as the Beer Garden Dog. Like you, we were not thrilled with our BBQ presentation in 2014. For 2014, we have scaled back the offerings (pub food), and likewise scaled back the prices. The food is not necessarily better, but the value is. Hope to have you again as a guest. More

This upstairs restaurant has a dining room and an enclosed balcony with windows that open to let in the mountain-fresh air. The welcome we received and the very friendly and efficient service were top-notch. And the food (we both opted for Wiener Schnitzel) was truly authentic. As good as any we have had in Europe.

Casual and laid back "Hangout type of place for decent food and drinks. Pub style food with some German items as required for Leavenworth. Good selection of local beers, wines, and spirits (careful of the moonshine). Bartenders were friendly and amusing, fun to joke around with and made the visits enjoyable. Good variety of seating choices from benches, chairs, stools,... More

I wanted to use my voucher for food-to-go on my last day in Leavenworth. The foods I could get were problematic as far as causing bubble guts. I could only get the sausage/kielbasa (?), house made chips, pretzel, appetizers, etc. I had a long drive back to the Seattle area and I didn't want a gut buster of a drive... More

We do offer food to go, but it is basically pub food (fried, BBQ'd) and better consumed on-site with a cold one. Hope to have you back with a little more time to spend. More
