You've got to consider this place in context when evaluating it. Sure, they have some 8-10 German beers (only two of which are on tap, none of which are hard to find), but this is an historically German town. This place isn't bad but it's outdone by almost any other restaurant/biergarten in town.

I don't want to trash this place -- the food is quite decent but not exceptional -- but it's not worth a separate trip, especially in consideration of other places within walking distance. Overall, unmemorable.

My wife and I and her parents ate lunch here while on a trip celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary.

What a setting. We were able to sit outside in LATE August and enjoy lunch. Like the other posters have stated, the beer selection isn't extensive. But, they do carry Spaten Optimator (one of my faves) and they had Spaten Oktoberfest and Lager on draught.

My food was outstanding. I can't find an online menu, but it was basically a german sausage sandwich with german potato salad. I'd order it again in a heartbeat.

If you are ever in Fredericksburg, I'd definitely recommend this place.

Although my visit was brief, I will never forget this place. It sits in downtown Fredericksburg, one of the oldest towns in Texas. The building that houses this business is a former church and by the looks of the stonework and the location appears that it is one of the earliest buildings in the town. I did not go into the building, but rather sat outside under the shade of many trees amongst the tables and chairs. The outside tables were all partially made of very old wooden barrels. Everything had an antique German tone to it. The selection of beer is perhaps not the most broad, but touts some nice beers. There is only 2 beers on tap and maybe 8 imports (all European) on the menu. Of course they do offer the common ones too. The service was good, the atmosphere was great and the town is worth the travel that it takes to get there. So much German History and what is so unique is that alot of the ranch owners in the area are the same family names as the early settlers, just generations later. Stop by if you ever can. Prosit!
