After my wife and I took a tour of Yards brewery. We drove down the street just for this place. Parking was great right in front of the building do to the snowy weather. As you walk in a curtain blocks most of the view of the restaraunt. We were greeted with sounds of a man playing an accordian right behind that black curtain. Bar is to the left stretching down the building to starcase and on the opposite side there are some boothes. Our table was upstairs and if you have been in this place the ceiling is not meant for us tall people to be walking up there. A little tight but never uncomfortable.

It took a little time for our server to greet us and take our order it was a Saturday and right around dinner time. Luckily we were able to get a seat in time as it did get very busy. Very nice to see all the waiter's and waitresses dressed the part as well.

Everything tasted like it was home cooked and very good at that. Food was a bit pricey but he isn't everything on South Street but it is well worth the money. An amazing place and a definite try if your in the area.

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.
