My wife and I love the food and the beer at OB's Brau Haus. I've had wiener schnitzel at a number of restaurants (including in Germany) and OB's is consistently the best I've ever had. Their beer is made for them locally, using their recipes,...More

Excellent restaurant, great food with nice selections of German cuisine. All in our group were very happy with meals. The draft brew selections are varied and authentic; I prefer the maibach. The service is excellent and very friendly. I can definitely recommend the Brau Haus.

Came here on a Wednesday night, and it was steady. Very nice upbeat ambiance and modern classy feel. Music is perfect and not too loud so you can actually talk to your group. A great menu with plenty of options, but not an overwhelming amount...More

Love the German dishes here. Food is excellent. Never a disappointment. The locally brewed beer is excellent as well. And make sure you leave for dessert. The Apple strudel and the Bread pudding are excellent.

If you love German food & great German beers, this is the place to do it! The Sauerbraten is made with filet mignon; not a cheaper cut of beef. So tender & just the right amount of red wine/vinegar in the gravy. The pork shanks...More
