Great beer and great food. Loved the atmosphere and the prices aren't too bad. You can enjoy a liter of great german beer for not such a bad price. My only complaint is that the last time I went the waitress was very rude and snotty but usually the staff there is a lot nicer. I would definitely recommend this biergarten and would say that it is a must try if your in brooklyn.

Best Place to Meet People Off of the Bedford Stop. Excellent Austrian Dunkleweizen.

Aside from Monk's Cafe in Philly, I found a recommendation for this place in GQ of all places. Actually was a big factor to visit the east coast of the US.

Radegast is right on the corner of street and has the Biergarten motif even on the front facade. Large, large garten and seating area that is open yet mostly covered from any rain. Long German tables all over offer plenty of seating for any size crowd. There are a few tap stations and food stations in the garten area aside from the main (and also huge) bar counter so you can get served faster by the enthusiastic and knowledgable staff. They even had a polka band going around the place playing on tables. The whole inside is old style German/Europe with brick and concrete floors and walls giving an authentic feel and look to it.

If you have been to German beer bars before you know the selections and Radegast has a great array of German and Belgian selections of all types. Tried the pretzel as well and was not disappointed. Just a great overall experience and if you have a day free in NY go to Brooklyn/Williamsburg and spend an afternoon embracing your inner German. Also hit Brooklyn Brewery a few blocks away.

The location was great - easy to find for a non-new yorker/brooklyner. Went on a Saturday afternoon and although it was crowded we found seats in the communal table in the biergarten. Food - I had the bratwurst and the pork sandwich - the wurst was very good but the pork was better. My friends got the wiesswurst and a cheeseburger - GREAT BURGER. They let you know that it takes a long time to cook - thick and perfect mixture. HAd nearly all the beers that I like - I had a HB Oktoberfest and my friend had the Weihenstephaner Vitus (wish they had the hefe).

I visited about a week ago and thought the place was fabulous! Great German beers, great wurst, an oompah band, a good crowd, and a positive buzz. As it was busy it took a few minutes for the server to notice us but once she did she was very pleasant and helpful. It was the beginning of their Octoberfest celebration (we were there about 1 PM in the afternoon). The crowd was diverse: old, young (babies), hipsters, neighborhood regulars. Overall, I strongly recommend a visit.

This spot is one of my favorite Williamsburg destinations. A beer garden bringing me back to my experiences actually visiting Germany. This is the authentic atmosphere - they have an indoor room and an outdoor garden. Inside, the appearance is classy and old world, with appropriate low lighting from chandeliers. Outside, there's long Oktoberfest style wooden tables and exposed brick. If you're going for brunch, arrive early, like 11ish, because it will get crowded. The food's excellent - they have what you would expect - sausages, bratwurst, potato pancakes, pretzels. There's a main menu and a separate one for the grill station outside. As for the beers, they have a tap menu with a dozen or so selections, and a rotating list of special European craft beers. The bottle list is exceptional with 50-60 different varieties. Of course the specialty is with German beer, but they also cover Belgium pretty well. Last time I went I got the Schlenkerla Marzen Rauchbier and the Leipziger Gose. The prices are a bit high, but consider the experience you are getting. I have no idea what people are talking about in regards to the service. Then again, like I said, I prefer to arrive early before it gets too packed. This is a must see for BA's in Brooklyn.

Exceeded my expectations to find a "good" beer garden during our NYC visit in 10/2010. We visited on a Friday night, great place to stop in for some food after happy hour at the close by Brooklynn Brewery a few blocks over.

Impressive selection of authentic German brews as I expected during Oktoberfest season. Quality of the beer was acceptable with appropriatte galssware. Service was attentive, timely and regular as needed.

Atmosphere in the garden/patio area was impressive with large old word tables, large scale open air lattice, plent of room for festive social seating with newly made friends/patrons.

Food was impressive and exceeded our expecations. Food was reasonable price but the beer was a bit on the pricey end.
