It was better before with the previous owners. It was like a true German Restaurant before. The food was very good before. Not sure if we will go back. It's too bad. Three of us had the Alaskan Walleye & the seasoning was very salty....More

We tried the goulash recently, with disappointing results. Potatoes and carrots were so over cooked they were just tasteless mush. We ordered our meals and the food was delivered before our drinks arrived. This tells me they must have a big pot of goulash in...More

My husband & I ate at the Brauhaus and enjoyed our meals! He had pork knuckle which was excellent, & my Schweinbraten was great too. The owners are still working through kinks due to transition, so folks need to be patient. If you want faster...More

Sorry for the late response but unfortunately we will not have one this year. Our main goal was to get the basics down first before we try anything of that scale. Next year we will make up for it.

Unfortunately her husband died from cancer and then her son died from a medical condition. It was a very sad time for her and she decided to sell the restaurant.
