Brauhaus Schmitz is my dream come true. I anticipated that this place would have it all, and it does. The front doors open up completely to South Street and you will see a high ceiling, a long wooden bar and eclectic German wall hangings. Schmitz offers a great selection of beer, a wonderful traditional wood-laiden German beer hall look, and a large array of unbelievable German cuisine. Growing up with my mother and her family coming from the Father Country, I've been immersed in German culture and cuisine since I can remember. Brauhaus Schmitz offers authenticity and exceptional quality and presentation of the food and drink. If you enjoy German beer and cuisine, you will love this place. If you have never had German beer or cuisine, you need to visit this place as you will also love it. You can find cheese and meat platters, salads of sorts, and plenty of protein and carbs on the menu (wurst, schnitzel, spaetzle etc). Almost daily they offer specials in appetizers, entrees and desserts. The usual suspects are always on tap, and you'll be sure to run into MANY German beers you've never tried or heard of, in varying German styles. There is plenty of seating and some standing room. They have added a Brauer's Bund in the back to the right, which is a Brewer's Room, with a lovely flitch bar top and additional beer taps. Larger parties can reserve one of the two stammtisch (large tables) in either area of the restaurant. The service has been outstanding including highly knowledgable bartenders and friendly table service. I will continue to revisit Brauhaus Schmitz for the forseeable future.

I stumbled upon Brauhaus while walking up and down on South street during a sweaty-hot almost-summer day while looking for apartments.

Went in for lunch and had a good time. The place is rather large and was pretty empty at around 1pm on a Tuesday. Not much of an atmosphere... the place looks new and sterile.

30 beers (20 front/10 back) on tap, all German. I've never seen a Deutsch joint with so many options: five different Hefes, three Goses, four Dopplebocks... plus more Goses and even some sours on the bottle menu.

I enjoyed the food- not your average German. Had a nice salad of kohlrabi, ramps and what not. The house-made sausages look promising. Service wasn't terribly warm but I'm used to it here in Philadelphia.
