I visited this atmospheric brewpub in May 2008. Situated in the former brewery of the monastery next door, quite near to the Unteres Belvedere. This is a fine place, but can be very busy. This is because it is popular with locals and tourists alike. It seems to be mainly aimed at people who want to eat and have an accompanying beer, rather than the other way around.
Service was good, as were the brews (I had Helles and a couple of Marzen). Tram (71, I think) runs right by the door. The only downside was malfunctioning Gents toilet, but I am supposing that this was an unfortunate occurence, as it seems very well run. It also boasts a nice beer garden (more courtyard than garden), but not for us in the damp cool May weather!

This brewery/eatery is located by Belvedere Palace, that is in the very center of Vienna. They brew their own selection of beers. You can choose between 5 different types. Food is reasonably affordable. The prices of beers are also quite reasonable. For example, 0,5 liter of beer is less than 4 €, which is normal for Vienna standards (taking into account that is located in the city center). I would highly recommend this place because it offers a wide selection of Austrian dishes.
Overall the atmosphere is quite enjoyable.

Owned by a company that makes equipment for breweries. This would be a recommendable brewpub for tourists as it is located near the Belvedere and it serves traditional Austrian food. They have nice schnitzel and a really good Jägerpfandle. Small selection of Austrian style beers, but they are well brewed. They use traditional decoction brewing methods and include some information about this on their menu.

This was one of the many highlights in Vienna. Love the garden outside and brewerry feel inside. The service was great or bad, its was average. I shared the pork knuckle with a friend and had many of the breers brewed on site: the dunkel (amazingly roasty), marzen (worst of the bunch), pils (pretty hoppy) and heifeweizen (very good). We had apple strudel for desert.
It was so good, we went back the next day and had their home roasted coffee. Love this place and will go back next time I am in Vienna.

I agree with the previous poster...the atmosphere here is great. This is a great example of a cozy European pub...smoky with the smell of cooking meat in the air. However, they do offer non smoking and outdoor seating near the entrance gate in season.. I believe four beers are offered year round (Helles, Dunkel, Pilsner, Maerzen) in addition to a seasonal (most recently a 6.2% Hellesbock) and highly acclaimed schnapps. We tried the Peach and Raspberry. The food here is excellent. I had a large plate of roasted pork leg with bier sauce sauerkraut and knoedel. My girlfriend hat hirschgulash. Ive also had the schweinbraeten, beef gulash, and both pork and veal (vienna) schnitzel...all excellent provided they arrive to the table while still hot. On our last visit service was slow, but to their defense it was Sunday late afternoon and they were swamped. This place can get very busy around meal time.

From the center of town, walk past the Soviet war memorial and take the left fork in the road to go around the Belvedere palace. Salm Bräu is in an old monastery on the edge of the palace grounds, but it must have been a small monastery. From the street, one enters the courtyard, full of tables in summer and with a heated tent in winter. Enter through the door on the right to an entry, from which stairs lead down to the right into a wonderful cellar with low vaulted ceilings. This area is frequently closed, however. To the right from the entrance is the main hall, long and narrow, with boothes and tables along either wall below higher vaulted ceilings and wonderful old style lamps hanging down from tracks well out of reach. The ceilings and walls are off-white plaster, while the benches and tables are light wood, contrasted by the dark wood of the chairs. A brick and dark wood bar sits on the left at the end of the room, with the brewkettles accessible through a doorway just after the bar. This is also how you enter the tent (and reach the bathrooms). The floors are red tile. There's a bit of stained glass around, and lots of old photos and sketches. The place was quite full on a Friday at 1:00 p.m.

The beers are consistently good, although the selection is rather unimaginative. They are served well, in appropriate logo glassware on top of logo coasters and at the right temperature. The seasonal rotates about every two months or so. The kitchen is commonly recommended, even by non-beer drinkers, but is pretty strictly limited to Viennese cuisine. Here's a good place to try Wiener Schnitzel, for example, but don't bother looking for something light or healthy. The service was good, even after the place got busy. Not as good as 1516 from a beer lover's perspective, this is a great place for a beer lover to enjoy some authentic Viennese atmosphere. It's certainly worth seeking out.
