The beer is ok, but the food (I had the daily special) wasn't that satisfying. It was food that had been heated several times. I pity as the place is close to the center and the place is nice. the waiter was very helpful though giving us directions to the museum we wanted to go afterwards.

Normal prices for the first district in Vienna. They try really hard to brew inventive and experimental beers, but I've never been 100% impressed by what they serve. It feels like a good effort, but the beers are still quite out of balance. The food is good enough American fare and the staff are usually very friendly.
Around the corner from this bar is Stadtbrauerei Schwarzenberg. It's well worth a bar hop to this place if you're drinking at 1516.
EDIT: I have to go back and change the 'service' score to a two now because of a bad experience we had last night. We had been drinking and snacking at a table for a while, when our waitress asked us to stand up and move to the bar because someone else wanted to eat at the table. They didn't have a reservation or anything, they just wanted our table. There was really no comfortable place at the bar, so basically we just had to go home. The whole thing felt really crappy.
I'm starting to think that I really just don't like this place.

This place is great value for money. Simple honest Austrian food - like pork ham, sausage and sauerkraut, baby back ribs, steaks and soups - and even American inspired dishes like wings and hamburgers. It's not gourmet but will do the job just right, without ever reminding you of fast food fare.
And the beers - especially the Hop Devil, made with American hops and recipe - are great! The beer is brewed on-site, and you can see copper stills and piping all behind the bar, and bags of grain and other ingrediends about.
Overall the place looks like a cool rock'n'roll wood/brown cafe, quite large (two floors) but dimly lit so it's intimate as well (it even has a few separé's). It's definitely not a german beer-hall. The location is great, very central and close to the Stephanplatz shopping areas, but quiet.
Highly recommended if you're in Vienna.
