Fichte Kränzi is a nice gastube (restaurant) in Sachsenhausen, across the river from Frankfurt. It is an easy walk from Römer across the footbridge (at least in nicer weather). The resaurant is in one large, squarish room (a bit of an L shape) with shared, picnic table seating. There is also a small bar with about 4 bar stools. It was quite busy when I visited, and I felt lucky to have found a seat at the bar quickly.

As with most places in Sachsenhausen, they serve traditional Apfelwein ("Apple wine" -- hard cider), and they serve it in the traditional manner from a large ceramic urn which fills blue-and-white ceramic pitchers which in turn fill the glasses. You might want to sample the Apfelwein, but of course we are more interested in the beer. They serve two beers: Karlsberg Ur-Pils, and Konrad Krug Bräu Dunkles Lager Landbier. The Krug-Bräu dunkel lager (from the Bamberg region) was delicious! And I was told by the bartender that they always have this beer on-tap. Worth a visit for this beer alone, in my opinion.

They have a version of their menu with English, French, and Spanish translations, but none of the daily specials are listed in this international menu. So, if you can read some German, be sure to look at the specials menu (which is also written on a large chalkboard on one of the walls). The food was good, and the specials interesting (I had a special of Wild Boar medallions in a plum-based sauce).

The atmosphere is a bit loud, due to all the people packed in, but this just shows that the place is popular and informal. The service was good, and at least two of the staff, including one of the managers(?) spoke enough English for me to get by with my smattering of German and my trusty pocket dictionary.

Give this place a try if you are in Frankfurt and want to experience Sachsenhausen.
