Had high expectations since Germanic and was not disappointed though I read the menu from the website b/f I stopped by and knew that there were not many options. I tried the only 2 beers I had not had (Auer Schneebock & Weltenburger Asam-Bock), both were excellent in proper glassware and poured properly. Bartenders both were cool and although they mispronounced Schneebock (rhymes with Hay, not Knee, then Bock), very professional and attentive. Chatted with some locals concerning liberal hypocrisy in Seattle (moved from Texas and am still surprised by the liberal lack of bite after the bark here, I cannot believe that I am truly bluer than most I have come across), recycling (locals claimed it all goes to the dumps like the garbage, that was sad to hear), and of course, German beer. Wiener Art (or at least schnitzel should be on the menu) would have been nice. Honestly quite impressed with this place, beer was better than I had hoped for, most of what I drink is NW beer but this was a great reminder of my past drinking experiences in Deutschland. Ausgezeichnet! Danke und Prost!

A This place is pretty much a replica of a German pub. Kind of has a rustic feel. Also kind of quiet despite the fact that quiet a few people were there.

Q Good beer especially if you like German styles but nothing spectacular.

S Service was alright, a bit slow but not overly so and the waitress seemed knowledgeable about the beer and was very nice.

The selection was about 10 or so beers all German. Nothing bad but nothing special either.

F The food seemed pretty good, I just had a pretzel and salad, but they seemed to be fresh and they were tasty. Plus my friend seemed to enjoy the wurst.

Prices were decent, beers were around $5.50 for a half liter and most menu items were under 10.

Overall this is a pretty good spot to stop in if you are in the neighborhood and looking for a decent spot to eat. Not a beer destination by any means but still worth a go if you are in the area.

A: Walk in and you find a small place, lots of wood and tap handles in your face. The place is not a beer geek destination by any means. This location has a patio giving it a bit more space that the Greenwood location.

Q: Not bad but it was togh to find a beer a beer of that was nit an average qualty. My beer was tasty but nothing I could not find anywhere else.

S: One hot chic with a great butt was working and she did a good job.

S; About a dozen handles. 10 standard and 2 rotating. None of them uber rare but pretty staNDard; Spaten, Bitburger and you get the picture.
