Perhap's the coolest thing to happen to mall's. . . ever. This beer bar cum german themed restaurant cum beer store cum German specialty food and gift shoppe is located in the University Mall in Tampa. Its about a five minute drive from my apartment so I end up there as often as I can afford. If you happen to live near of the several dunderbak's locations scattered about the mall's of this nation, belly up to the bar and consider yourself lucky.

That said, no one particular thing about this place is exceptional. Its the combination of the variety of things they do well. The don't brew any of their own beers. They have twelve taps or so, which is a good amount but not amazing. You can get about 150 (rough estimate) beers in bottles, either to drink there or to take with you. The food is all mostly German themed. Hand packed sausages, Wiener Shintzel, meat and cheese plates, etc. All very tasty but not extraordinary. The quality of service varies. One server in particular, Jason, really seems to be passionate about beer and can answer any question you have about. The others vary, though all know more about beer than your average waiter at Outback. They also sell German wines, snacky things and gifts (Get Granny a Stein!)

Its the atmosphere that I love most about the place. That your in a mall, for me at least, helps rather than detracts. The store is only about 15 feet wide, though very deep. One section of the bar has a couple of TVs so you can chill and watch the game. The rear section, separated by about 15 of shelves, has no TV and a few tables. Overhead there is a canopy, which better than the ceiling, though it fails miserably at making you feel outdoors. There's a couple of chessboards and other board games at the end of the bar, letting you know that their in no hurry to get you out. Baskets hanging from the ceiling, imported beer signs and mirrors and the occasional painting of german lad in liederhosen complete the decor. Its very easy to forget your in the mall, or if you remember, feel sorry for everybody else outside of the shop rushing around and looking stressed.
Overall, a great place and definately worth a visit. Its the type of place that almost makes me wish my finace was the type that enjoyed shopping at the mall for hours, just so I could give her my keys and say "Okay, you go have fun dear, I'll be here at the bar."
