German food. Get the hot mustard. The famous burgers are only available on the bar side.

Optimator is the best draft beer available here. Best bottles are locals and Tremens.

Out back behind the main bar is an open air gravel pit to watch the bands play and drink outside. picnic tables, fire pit, heat lamps.
This place gets a little crazy during St. Patrick's day.

Large historic beautiful building, spacious. Dark wood everywhere.
There are bands playing in at least 1 of 3 locations the entire weekend and many weeknights.

Good beers on tap and a phenomenal atmosphere. Pretzel mustard with horseradish sets your nose on fire. Schlenkerla rauchbier, spaten optimator, steel nail ipa, and a hofbrau dunkel were consumed.
