I came one late afternoon on Memorial Day. While the place is quite large, there were very few patrons (maybe six!) here. In fact, the staff out numbered us. I was struck by the streamers across the ceiling with placards advertising a Paulaner Oktoberfest. The bar features lots of dark, elaborately carved wood. It's like stepping back to an era no longer available.
The smells from the kitchen are attractive. First, I experienced Bratwurst, and then grilled marinated steak. Although I didn't try any food, the aroma "therapy" was superb.
The service was fine, but the server at the bar did not really understand the selections. Still, with 44 beers on tap, many of true nuggets, it's hard to go wrong. I did not note too many really hard-to-find beers, but the selection offered many high-quality beers. In most cities, this would be a top-notch beer bar, but not Boston.

We had lunch here while touring Boston. The atmosphere is German beer bar with lots of flags and beer decor. Quality was below my rating of average. Service was friendly and helpful. Beer selection was very good and that's about the best thing I can say about this place. I had a pastrami sandwich and it was horrible. The meat was dry and while the roll was tasty there wasn't anything on it. One tiny slice of pickle came with. Others in our party had the chicken BLT which was good and a sausage sampler plate which looked really dry and bland but they said it was good. Every table did get a bucket of corn bread which somehow seemed out of place for a German eatery. I can't eat corn bread and no one else ate it at our table so it all went to waste. Maybe a mixed bucket of bread like rye or sour dough would be a better choice. Value was reasonable.

In town at the Courtyard Tremont for a few days for work after coming back from the great beer desert that is Canada. This joint is right around the corner from it.
Got in late the first night and walked over for a quick bite on a tip from the hotel desk girls.
Fresh Flower Power on tap. Thank you sweet Jesus and God bless the USA!
Live piano and singing, great fresh beer, friendly and prompt service, and reasonable food. Some mates joined me and we shut the place down.
We went back the next evening for a few beers and apps before heading out to dinner. Ended up staying the whole night and again shutting the place down!! Way too much fun and you gottta love waking up with a sore throat from singing too hard!!
