Warm, open, inviting ‘food hall’- where it’s often quite loud. However, that ads to the vibrant atmosphere of the place. This might not be the place for a quiet dinner or to propose to your wife....but for a business meeting, friends, or a family dinner....it’s...More

We stumbled upon this place by chance whilst strolling around the theatre district. It’s a great place, with tremendous history and atmosphere. But although the cuisine Is German, there are lots of other things on the huge menu. The beer is great and the choice,...More

Just what I needed after eating a lot of junk food for the last fee days! I had the Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Tower: Fresh, delicious, filling. Prompt service. Liked the interior too.

Having lived in Germany for 13 years, we know we enjoy authentic German meals. We approached this visit with guarded expectations. We'd heard from others that the food is good but not quite like Germany. We had several appetizers and I was especially pleased with...More

There is a great selection of beer in the atmosphere of a German Beer hall. Lots of fun. Food was average.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Thank you for your question. The only dish we can make without seasoning is our burgers. All other dishes are mostly pre marinated. Please make sure to ask your server about your request when you arrive!
