Such a pleasant surprise! Visited with a party of 6 and we all were impressed with the delicious food and tasty beer. A few of us are vegetarians and it was great that there were options for us! The vegetable risotto and potato pancakes were to die for. We also had the homemade apple strudel which was outstanding. The waiter was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was comfortable. Will definitely come back!

I love German food and frequent other German restaurants around the city of Cleveland. This was just didn't stack up. The beer was on par. I wouldn't brag about it but it was good. The food was also just ok. There wasn't anything bad about it, I just felt that it was average. What bothered me the most was the lack of ambiance in the dining room. The walls are stark white with some wood trim (some real wood, some painted on). There were some sparse decor items on the wall but it overall lacked the ambiance of a German eatery. It felt much like a warehouse. The bar was even covered in corrugated metal which didn't help the lack of ambiance. We did not get a chance to check out the store next door as it was closed. Overall, it was fine if you are in Ohio city and need a place to go, but if you are willing to travel a few extra minutes I would explore other places in Cleveland for German food and beer.

I had a great Oktoberfest brew here. Had a great conversation with the owner. He just kept on giving me tastes of their different beers. The building has an awesome Bavarian feel to it. Lots of pine wood trim

Great place for groups, couples, families or solo. The food is delicious, the waiter, Nick, was on-point and the beer selection is perfect.

We first visited last year shortly after they opened. It was okay but not fantastic. We've since returned twice around the time of their 1st anniversary. They have improved. The food (Eastern European fare) is great as is their beer. In nice weather they have a patio (which would benefit from some table umbrellas but none the less is great) but their main dining area is beautiful with walls of windows and lovely tables and chairs. Hope they are around many more years.
