Dunderbak's was my bar of choice for six years in Tampa. If you appreciate beer or want to learn about it, it's the place to go. They have 55 beers on tap featuring both German and craft brews, rotating daily. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. The food is excellent - almost better than what I had in Germany - and they offer awesome weekend specials. They also feature local musicians weekly, they got me started brewing beer, and host the Tampa BEERS homebrew club the first Tuesday of every month. Having just moved to the Twin Cities area for work, I have yet to find a bar that's as inviting and comfortable as Mr. Dunderbak's. I would recommend it to anyone who's interested in good beer, good food, or is just looking for a cool place to hang out.

Loved this place. Lots of great beer to try. Didn't try the food just drank and got some bottles to go of stuff I couldn't find at stores. Bottles are pretty unorganized and the tap menu cycles slowly with ads in between, but the staff is super helpful and will take the time to let you sample the taps or even scour through the bottles.

A - Came here on a Tuesday evening. Looks like a German beer hall. Overall the place has a lively atmosphere and is pleasant. I did find the place a little dirty and the seating is quite cramped.

Serv - All selections on a printed menu and a digital board. Proper glassware used. Server knew about the beer, but I could do without hearing everything our group ordered was "a great choice".

Sel - Good mix of imports and domestic with a few locals. I went with St. Somewhere Caroline and Duchesse De Bourgogne.

Food - The authentic German food was really good. Our group was happy with everything. Jagerschnitzel was tasty.

Value - I found the prices consistent with craft pours in the area.

This was a restaurant that has a great beer selection. I would come back if I ever find myself in Tampa.

I have a hard time rating this place. I will NOT stay at Dunderbak when they have that awful - truly dreadful - accordion player. If you go there and you hear even one chord of accordion let me give you some advise - leave immediately. You don't even want one beer as the most awful music will drill into your brain no matter how much you try to avoid listening.

When the accordion player is not there then I really like hanging out here. The staff are all very knowledgeable about the beers on tap. I find all the help to be quite friendly and you get a very good vibe from them. The beer selection is very heavy German lagers and sours which you would expect from a German food restaurant. I like American craft IPA's and my only fault is the selection is usually scant here - 2 or 3 and beers you've undoubtedly drunk before.

The food is really quite tasty. We've eaten here a lot of times and can truly say we haven't had a bad meal experience. The food quality and value for the money is quite good.

If they'd just lose the damn accordion player this would be a 5
