I, too, have experienced the problem of them being out of some of their menu, but not to the extent of the previous reviewer. They have an excellent selection for such an establishment, and it's a fun place to go for an Oktoberfest get-together. My biggest problem is that it is way too expensive. The food is the typical German fare, brats and the like, of which I am not fond to begin with ( though I do like sauerkraut). A fun place to check out, if you're ever in the area and you've got the money to spend. I won't probably go there again, as I don't like blowing wads on beer that I can buy elsewhere for much cheaper and drink in the comfort of my own home.

I'll echo the other reviews with mine...the Bavarian Grill is pretty much the only place in the metroplex you can find fresh German beer on tap. The selection is very good and the food isn't bad either. Oktoberfest at the BG is quite fun but most nights there's a festive atmosphere anyway.

The staff is very friendly and they know their german beer, food, etc. Plus, they will serve your beer in its appropriate glassware. It's easy to like this place.

I imagine one of the main drawbacks is the location, which is anything but convenient to our fellow western metroplexers. Otherwise, it's worth a drive if you really, really love German beer.

The Bavarian Grill is simply put, the best German-style resturant/bar in the area. The atmosphere and decor are fitting. They have live music quite often, which is always nice. The food I've had there has always been good. The waitstaff seems to be very friendly. While this is more of a place to eat than to come for a drink, they have a great selection of German beers (50-some-odd, I believe).

One potential drawback is that it's somewhat pricey - on the dinner menu, prices start around $15 if I remember correctly.

One nice thing is that they take reservations - I know some of you are probably saying "So?", but in this area, places that take reservations (unless they are super-expensive) are the exceptions to the rule. So it's nice to be able to phone ahead and not have to worry about long waits.

There are 3 main seating areas, there's the main dinning room, and then 2 biergartens, one inside and one outside. So you should be able to find a comfortable spot regardless of weather.

Oh, and they also have a Stein club for you beer lovers. Try each of their beers (you get a card to keep track) and you get a personalized Stein (among other things), which is pretty cool - any place that gives you incentive to try different beers is OK in my book :-)

The Bavarian Grill is THE place to go in the Metroplex for German bier (or German food, or German music, or anything else German). I think the food is OK (IMO Bavarian food isn't the most exotic or intensely flavored in the world, but their wursts are great) and the atmosphere is fun (humorous oompah bands on most nights), but the real draw is the quality and selection of their bier. In the Texas summers I drink a lot of Pilsners and there is NO place in Texas that I've found where you can get fresher pils. I use the pils example because the hop flavor and the fresh maltiness diminish so quickly on the transatlantic voyage, especially if we're talking about green bottles. They only have German biers on the menu, with every available-in-Texas German bier represented either in bottles or on draft. Top notch, if a bit pricey (around $15 for dinner and about $5 for a bier). Check the website: www.bavariangrill.com
