Quite nice restaurant with a big patio. It's quite busy on a Borussia match Saturday. The service is quite slow. They serve tasty Zwickelbier.

Well, the place has a terrace wich for a cigarette smoker like me is like the best thing possible for a restaurant. They have one of the best beers I have ever tasted and the food is very good too! Portions are huge like in every german restaurant.

The beer and spirits variety in Hövels Hausbrauerei is exceptional - and all their own finely crafted and perfectly distilled spirits. Superb attentive and efficient service with a smile. THE place to visit for a homely German evening out.

Great meals with lots of local dishes to choose from. The Hövels beer is delicious too and service was excellent.

We took our two boys (14 & 10) to a Borussia Dortmund match around Christmas. We dropped in here for dinner. It was quiet but quickly got busy. The food (schnitzel, currywurst, rosti, Surat) and drinks were lovely, they have a children's menu and no-one tried to speak to us in English which was great! Nice atmosphere. We'd go again.

Very nice, typical German brewery. Plenty of space between tables. Food is typical German with home made beers. Price range is average.

Eight of us visited this restaurant last Sunday afternoon and we were very impressed by the food and drink in quality and quantity, as none of us spoke German we were helped by the waiter who could translate the menu for us.

Visited this restaurant a few times for work dinners and a few solo dinners. This place is a local brewery producing Dortmunds local beer. It's a dark amber type and is absolutely delicious! All of the food here is fantastic as well. Can't go wrong with your choice!
