When I was younger I went to Mr Dunderbak's a few times back in my hometown Daytona Beach, but it was before I was of age so I didn't remember it very well. After a vacation in Germany I brought my husband here for a really nice afternoon of beer and German food. He grew up in Germany so he is a discerning judge of German restaurants. We both really enjoyed the atmosphere, it's very similar to a lot of the little pubs in Nuremberg. The beer selection was great, we ordered St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap- which was served in a goblet.

Beyond the beer menu, we got a kick out of the selection of German food and candy available there. It tickled me to see Milka chocolate, Mezzo Mix and Kinder eggs on the shelf. It's also a nice place to pick up a mixed six pack. Someone recently told me they have a recipe book for home brewers which I'll have to check out one of these days. My only "complaint" was the food is not as authentically German, as other places I've been to in the US. I felt it represented an American idea of what German food is, but with that said, our meal was still very tasty. So if you're more interested in beer this is a great location. However, if you live in Tampa and want some true German cuisine I highly recommend Schnitzelhaus on Waters Ave.

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.
