I really liked this place. I didn't know what to expect since I've never been to germany or a german restaurant. First the beer - A great selection of german beers with the more well know names as well as some more obscure beers. They were out of the Korbinian (damn) and Schneider Weiss (damn, damn) on tap but I had a nice Alt, Erdinger Hefe, and Salvator - all for $5 for a 16oz. They will serve them as a liter which is impressive. The food was surprisingly good - venison medallions with red cabbage was $18.00. This place gets crowded and you may have to share a table but that doesn't matter since this is a family restaurant that serves great beer. Complaints? They need a beer garden to keep the beer drinkers out of the restaurant and stock more german rarities on tap. The belgians on tap were weak - maredsous 8 and leffe but this a german place so back off. Can't wait to go back.

The atmosphere is like a restaurant with only several seats at the bar around the back. The front of the bar is long but does not have any seats.

The quality is good the tables, chairs, and bar are all pine. The restrroms are clean. Did not see the kitchen.

Service is quick and prompt.

Their selection of beers are mainly if not all European. Served in such a large glass that it would be difficult to review more than a couple. Wait beer in large glasses that may be a good thing.

The food was OK.

Pricey

This is one of the most authentic Wirsthauses you're likely to find outside of Deutschland. It's a sheer pleasure to eat here and one of my favorite places in San Francisco.

The interior is traditional with tables and pine benches. Don't be surprised if you're sitting close to strangers and don't be surprised if they're no longer strangers by the end of the evening. Suppenkuche is usually packed, especially on weekends, so make reservations.

The fare is delicious traditional german dishes: various schnitzles, spatzles, and wursts. The portions are generous and the quality is first rate. And most importantly, you can wash down this great food with one of a number of quality German, Belgian, or other brews, including products from: Franziskaner, Paulaner, Spaten, Schneider, Duvel, Leffe, Erdinger, Ayinger, Weihenstephaner, Maredsous Abbey, Bitburger, Weltenburger, and others. The beer list isn't enormous, but it certainly covers most of the bases.

Suppenkuche makes for a wonderful dinner with friends. I highly recommend it.
