I made my second visit Sunday before game 3 of the NLDS. I really like the atmosphere of this place. It looks like a German drinking hall. There were rows of tables and benches in the main part of the building. I bellied up to the bar. There was live accordian music and plenty of German drinking songs. The waitresses dress in traditional German attire, but to my dismay, many of them wore undershirts to prevent the St. Paulie Girl busts from being appreciated. Nevertheless, I ventured on.
The menu consists of German staples as well as American cuisine. My friend and I sampled the wurst platter, consisting of bierwurst, bratwurst, and mettwurst, along with sour kraut balls. I was disappointed in the bratwurst, but, when you live outside the "Bratwurst Capitol of America" that has a festival dedicated to the sausage every year, non can compare.
The beer selection was basic with their standard four year round selections and a monthly seasonal. I enjoyed the hefe weizen, much more than in the green bottled version at the store. Overall, a fun place to hang out. With a solid lineup of German offerings I can see myself spending more time pre and post Reds games.

excellent place for a good night of German food and good beer. They established a new beer, the Hofbrau Hallodri, which was excellent!
I would definitely return, as the food, service, and atmosphere were absolutely awesome!
Not necessarily the place to go if you're on a tight budget, but the price for the portion size is awesome! We almost always bring home leftovers!
