A curious place, actually located in the middle of a mall. It's a bar/beer store/regular German store. I have never heard of or seen this before. Located on the first floor in the C section near Sears. Located in a mall, so you know the parking is good (unless the mall is very busy).

There is a bar in the front and back, along a very narrow suite. On the way back you pass various shelves with beer bottles and other knick knack items. The back area also has some tables. There are games on the bar, along with beer swag and posters. There is also a Sam Adams Utopias bottle sitting on the bar where I was seated, next to a "beer choosing" guide. I didn't inquire whether they had any or not. It's out of my price range anyway.

The selection is good. I don't know how well it stacks up against other bars, but there are over 15 taps along with some cask selections. Unfortunately they don't have a beer list, except one that's on a whiteboard on the wall.

The food is strictly German with a wide variety of entrees. It's all at a reasonable price as well.

Probably one of the better places in the northeast Tampa area. Recommended.

This is definitely a beer bar worth visiting if you're in Tampa (and if I was a regular I'd be here as a regular) but it's not a "BEER beer bar". The tap selection is great and has constant rotation and the bottle shop had numerous bottles that I can't find elsewhere so the selection is top notch. But the place tries to be more of a family restaurant and is real cluttered, and with only a tiny bar to drink at I can't see how this place is a beer geek mecca. As for the food, it wasn't bad - that's all I can say.

Great traditional German restaurant with tasty food and wonderful beer. More than just German beer on tap and in bottles. Worth a visit. I will be back.
Cheers

This place is a sort of Beer Utopia. The food is incredible, the ambiance is incredible. I would love it, if this restaurant were in driving distance to my home. It's a very German style establishment, with delicious German food, and incredible German beer. If you're ever in Tampa, please for the Love of God visit this place.

On a recent trip to Tampa my wife and I chose Mr. Dunderbak's for our meal and incredible beer selection. A little research had shown me that this place had one of the finest tap selections in the area. No disappointments. The food is superb and very authentic, service was top notch (we sat at the bar). There is a small grocery store in the place selling primo quality wurst and other German condiments etc. We went back a second time and were again well pleased with everything.

Loved this place. Lots of great beer to try. Didn't try the food just drank and got some bottles to go of stuff I couldn't find at stores. Bottles are pretty unorganized and the tap menu cycles slowly with ads in between, but the staff is super helpful and will take the time to let you sample the taps or even scour through the bottles.
