I've been here for years and never even knew this place existed. This Dutch/German restaurant is off the beaten path and very well hidden on the side of the road. And it's just as well it's not an overly popular place, because it's tiny. There's only about 10 barstools for seating. Outside there's a beer garden with a good deal more seating, but that's only good for warmer months. There's also a decent sized dining area, but that's for wurst and braut eating, not just for having drink.

As for the beer, it's mainly Belgium fare. Two taps and 19 bottles of stuff like Spaten, Chimay, Aventinus, Paulaner, Kostritzer, and Steenberge's Gulden Draak. It'd be nice to have a few more taps, but the amount and variety of bottles is quite nice. The price per bottle is the same as if you bought it in the store.

The Dutch Garden is owner operated, with the assistance of a couple waiters. I put the service as average to reflect the beer knowledge and handling. It's no reflection of the restaurant portion, as I've never eaten here.
