If you want a true Prague experience you need to stop in at "Fleck's Place" during the Orthodox Christmas season. The place was packed with people from every corner of the world. It was very loud and sounded like the United Nations cafeteria. We had already eaten, so we did not try the food, but from what I have been told it is average. That wonderful beer of theirs, however, is delicious, strong, and never stops coming to the table!

A must visit (for beer lovers) if only for the history as the pub was founded in 1499. A little touristy and admittedly neither the food nor beer were mind blowing I still enjoyed the atmosphere seated chockablock with locals and tourists at communal tables. They serve only one house brewed beer a dark lager. Would return

We opened the place up at 10:00 AM (actually showed up around 9:30 since our book listed opening at 9:00). We had an early train to catch and this was the only time we could squeeze in a visit. As a bonus, the aroma of the brewing process was thick in the air. The beer was excellent, as were the toilet facilities. We could tell the place would be more fun with a few dozen other patrons.
Reading the reviews, I was a little anxious about the waiters, hidden fees, etc. But there was no music playing, and we easily brushed off the offer of shots (at 10:00 AM, after all). If it's good enough for Michael Jackson, it's good enough for me.

I visited this famous/infamous place at 6pm on a Wednesday evening (end of March 2012). I confess to being a bit apprehensive after reading reviews (on here and elsewhere) but was determined to try it. As we entered through the main door we were steered in to the left (no choice). I suspect that most of it was closed off as it was relatively quiet. Fair enough, we found a couple of seats at a table (feel free to share a table in Prague!) and before long two mugs of dark lager arrived.
Firstly the beer; I have to say it is pretty damn good - nice quaffable brew with a nice head and some sweetness to it. Please note that it is served in a 0.4L (400ml) mugs and this serving size coupled with the price per mug makes it probably the most expensive beer in Prague (apart from hotels).
The place itself was quite nice; a medium sized room with dark panelled walls, dark wooden beamed ceiling hung with a couple of rustic type chandaliers. And there was a nice clock on the end wall. Rustic "beerhall" tables and chairs. No escaping the resident accordian playing man - I suppose it helps with the atmosphere they are trying to create.
Then later the waiter comes over offering the shots of whateveritis and understood when we politely but firmly declined. These are more expensive than the beer apparently.
I had a second beer while my companion was finishing theirs and enjoyed it. Been there, done that!

Destination marked with a clock on the outside "Pivovar U Fleku", there is more within! This was the 2nd Stop on the Old&New Town Beer Tour of Praha with all of the other tourists I joined up with on the night tour. While I saw this place also mentioned on a "must see" basis when researching Prague, it was awesome to actually experience this place.
While being guided throughout the whole time @ U Fleku, we still got to peek into other beer halls and wander off from our spot. We immediately walked in and had a table waiting for us inside the first "beer hall" and ordered our second round of 0,4L brews. While venturing off into other rooms, there had to be seats for between 700-800 people! Our room alone could hold over 100 people without a doubt and we didn't even get to make it around the entire place! In the room adjacent to us, both an accordion and tuba player where leading the group of party people into song and dance (mostly just swaying to the music and clapping). Couldn't beat the culture and entertainment here!
Very old and antique here, the place it self should always keep this vibe and decor! For their beer, we all enjoyed their house lager of course but then not sure what we had next (this was my 5th beer of the night by then).
Service was terrific for we got served right as we were seated! They have many servers here and they all look very pleasant but at the same time look like police officers!
Now that I recall, we were only asked what size of bier we wanted but never which kind! We all had the same lager to start with but can't remember much after this... Must have been all the great Prague biers that day!
I do remember enjoying their beer cheese and toast and it was something you cannot pass up! Others had sausage and other various meats and all looked delicious as well.
Upon returning to Prague, this is going to be a destination I am going to be coming back to for sure! I highly recommend this place for those who want to see some culture in the beer halls of CZ and catch themselves by surprise with how big Prague's beer halls are compared to our "bars" in the States.

Met some family on a day trip to Prague. This was listed as stop #6 on my Beer Trail of Prague in "Great Beers" by DK publishing.
I ended up doing it third after the Old Town Square and U Zlateho Tygra, and ended up finishing the day at U Fleku.
A vibrant and crowded atmosphere; Traditional Bavarian-esque /Bohemian brass trio playing oompa-loopa drinking songs.
I was in a group of four, and we sat in the Beer Garden; we were immediately greeted by one waiter placing shots of Bechrekova (traditional Czech liquor from Karloy-Vary/Carlsbad), and another with a half liter of the Flekovsky tmavy lezack (dark house beer).
Several tourist groups singing drinking songs, and after several beers we began joining in.
Great place to visit if you have a time.

Visited on a recent trip to Prague - I'd heard about it and thought I might as well have a meal and sample the beer. Arrived somewhat late in the evening and after peering into the busy beer hall, decided to have a seat in the beer garden at the back. Plenty of tourists; this place is clearly never empty.
Waiters mill around, although they come across as rather aloof. You don't have to wait long for a beer - they only serve the one which is produced on the premises so a glass will appear in front of you before you know it. They keep track of your consumption by ticking a slip of paper on your table. The beer is the highlight of the visit: dark, smooth, creamy and delicious. Although it's rather pricy, it's certainly worth sampling. I had some traditional Czech food as well - a decent goulash. It was OK but didn't blow me away. They also try to push some kind of liqueur, but I resisted as I suspected it would cost a bomb. Overall the prices are fairly steep, and I also think I was overcharged by the waiter that took my money.
If you're thinking of visiting, my recommendation would be to have a couple of beers and nothing more. The beer is great; everything else can be had for less at alternative eateries.

Me an my buddies went here on our little stint throughout europe. We had heard of this place and it's history and it was a must stop in our minds.
So we didn't get there until late in the night - Let me lay it out first. Imagine that scene in beauty and the beast when gaston and the other bros are chillin in the cabin bar. Ok you have that image. Combine it with the 4 house tables image of Harry Potter and the great hall. Of so that is what we walked in on. The cabin feel with 4 huge bench like tables running down the middle. The place was packed (with just enough room for us of course). We sat down and a waitor came to our table and asked if we were eating and drinking - yes to both so he took out two pieces of paper and put tallie marks on each - yes this was our bill. anyways moving on
Atmosphere was incredible there was music playing and the band played some American songs for us and everyone cheered as we got up and sang. It was hardcore beer hall like I have imagined in the past.
Food - great food - not a lot of options though - we were basically given the option of roast chicken or smoked sausage. Great choices in my mind considering the man like atmosphere.
Beer selection - 1 - the draft they have been making forever. It was awesome to and endless - You just held up your hand and one was sliding along the table in your direction.
I highly recomend going here if oyu have the chance.

I visited this establishment several times while studying abroad in Prague. Like stated in previous reviews, the prices here are much higher than most bars/pubs in Prague. I actually liked the Beckerovka shots they serve here although I don't know if I believe what the server said about a shot a day of Beckerovka would keep you from getting sick. I had visited a place where they make Beckerovka in the Czech Republic so I think I was used to the taste. This place serves beer in huge mugs and while there aren't a ton of beer options, the beers are definitely decent here. The atmosphere is very touristy and there always seems to be a big crowd. This is a decent spot overall.

A very touristy place and very expensive for Prague. The Becherovka shots are NOT free. Beer is 60 crowns, twice what most should cost in Prague. However, I was glad I went and tried their only house brewed beer, a very dark lager. Very enjoyable beer; but I would echo many comments that say, "go..have a beer..or two or three..and leave" before you spend too much money. Few Czechs in sight; plenty of other options in town. A classic place; but I could suggest many other better places to see a classic Czech pub.
