Peters Kölsch is not my favorite of the bunch, yet Peters Brauhaus, right adjacent to the old market square in Cologne serves up a great atmosphere and very good regional (and some not so regional) cooking. All this in various pleasantly designed areas within the building (although a rather new place, they have succeeded in its design I think). And service in my experience (three visits) has been also good to boot. In my visits (3 total), there have always been quite the number of wiaters (Köbes) to go around; a good thing, too, since this place is fairly huge.

On my last visit, I enjoyed a relaxed lunch, starting with an obligatory five or so beers (ie: .2 L Stange glasses). I started my solids with a "Halver Hahn." A regional snack, this consists of local mild cheese and a crunchy roll served with butter (!) and NOT something of a half-chicken variety or other (gotta love their food slang). Although it sounds simple enough, you do not eat it like a sandwich (unless you want suspicious looks directed your way). No, indeed one must slice the roll with the knife, then proceed to butter each half on the plate, also some obligatory mustard, then divide the cheese atop the two halves. Then you use a fork and knife to eat. Really.

After more beers, I ordered a very tasty dish which basically consisted of a bowl in which beans and thick bacon were simmered in a mildly-spiced brown sauce. My brother also partook. Yummy. And, yes, a spoon, knife and fork did suffice...
Prost!

I visited this place on three occasions while on a weekend in Cologne (End of November 2010). The first occasion was when my wife and I went in during the day just for a couple of kolsch. The kobe was pleasent and efficient. This experience encouraged me to go back there with another couple for lunch and dinner (with beer, of course). The food was excellent. but the place can get very busy on weekend nights, and prebooking is advised. This is done with your waiter, and you ask for him when going there at the appointed hour.

The place itself is a beautiful interior with plenty of wood and a beautiful stained glass ceiling in the second room. This is a must visit in Cologne.

Didnt manage to go into the brewhouse so this review is based on the beer garden around the corner on the Alter Markt.

Location is in a corner on the square covered by overhanging leafy trees and umbrellas giving a nice shady spot in the sun.

The area was quiet and sleepy with the occasional stag do wandering by or sitting down for a few Kolsch.

Service was slow to be honest, i dont think the Kobes noticed us as we sat down as we waited 10 mins or so for a beer, but once ordered it was very efficient.

Only Peters Kolsch available along with Schofferhoffer hefe-weizen.Definitely not the best Kolsch but was fresh.

Didnt try the food nor see anyone else partaking!

A nice location to sit and have a sleepy afternoon but otherwise better places to frequent.

Will definitely go into the pub next time!

Stop number 3 on a Kolsch bar-hop through the center of Cologne. We didn't enter the brauhaus, so this review is based on what I'll term the beer garden in front.

There were shady tables with seating for maybe 150 people, very comfortable at the end of a long day of travel. The servers were extremely fast, and although we only ordered beers I saw that the food menu looked extensive. It included all the great classics, pork knuckle included.

The Kolsch was surprisingly good. I'll leave my decriptions of the beer to the beer review, but I'll say here that it's a great reason to come to this particular brauhaus. Among the best I tried while in Cologne.

This was the first place I visited after arriving in Cologne. The food was good - we had Pork knuckle with sauerkraut and mash. The Kolsch was a shock to begin with, but it was first experience with kolsch vom fass, so I soon got used to it and found it quite nice.

The place is your typical beer hall type arrangement with some nice lights and decorations for the current carnival going on in the city (clown related?)

Solid, but nothing exceptional to make it a stand out. I would definitely go back in if I was passing.

The food here was exactly what we were looking for...meat and potatoes cooked perfectly. I ordered the Brauhaus-Teller which is two veal schitzels served with fried potatoes and my girlfriend got a Bratwurst with Potato Salad. All of the food was extremely delicious and I would definitely go there again. Their only beer is their Kolsch, which is the standard for all brewpubs there. It is served in very small .2L glasses and is very light and refreshing and went well with the meal. The waiter was extremely helpful and spoke English very well.

Has a real old world feel to the place, lots of dark wood, ancient decorations, beautful chandeliers. The menu consisted of lots of boiled meats and vegetables, if you want to play it on the safe side, order the Brauhaus-Teller, two pork schnitzels served with a salad and some home fries. There is only one beer here, the kolsch. If you're in Koln, you're drinking kolsch, and you could do a lot worse than Peters. The waitstaff is helpful and generally speaks English. This is a bit of a tourist stop. The locals stick to one of the many many other local bars for the most part, but they drink here too. Overall, a traditional German brauhaus experience with good beer, good food, and a great atmosphere.
