This place has a good selection of German & Belgium beer. During happy hour the prices are very good.The menu they offer has many German and European specials. Located on Market St, it is close to most of the popular attractions in Philly. The service here is very good.

Stopped here on a whim. The sauerbraten was one of the best I ever had. Just melted in my mouth. Service and atmosphere was great.

Bit of student place but great beers. Probably could do with bit of a refurbish but still a nice place for a drink.

This place was the last stop on the Grim Philly haunted pub crawl and it has the best pierogis I have ever tasted. Incredible beer selection and delicious food make for a wonderful night on the town!

This place is a bar that has German food and a big selection of beer. I was expecting a bit more of a German atmosphere but, it really is just a bar. An over priced bar at that. Food was ok. My husband enjoyed his sausage dinner but my short ribs tasted like dried up roast beef. Mashed potatoes were... More

First of all had a excellent waitress - think she said her name was Audra? Several times she came and asked how everything was. They were out of the beer I wanted so I ordered Hofbrau which is always good. After that is was downhill. My husband ordered a spaetzle with ribs but it was just cut up pieces of... More

While looking for the famous Philly Cheese Steaks in Philly we found this place next to Campo's Deli. Pats and Geno's were packed with tourists so tried Campo's but it was equally packed. So we gave this place a try. We were not disappointed! Great food huge beer menu. Service was great.

I had corn chowder which was delicious, and pretzel bites which were also excellent. Unfortunately the bartender was also my waiter which meant he was too busy to take proper care of me and I waited quite a while to get a refill of my Diet Coke. I would go back, but not if I needed to eat quickly.

We were walking around looking for a place to eat. The sign out front got us in the door. The place left a little to be desired, the table had a wobble, the chairs stuck to the floor. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the beer selection and was fantastic with recommendations. The beer cheese with pretzels was one of... More
