Everything was great about this restaurant. I loved the small bar, which it wasn't really small, atmosphere. There were tables around for you to sit at and eat. There were two parts of the restaurant. One part they opened up during the day and weeknights, the other part which is more of just a sports bar they open up on the weekends along with the other part.

The food was good, I tried a smoked braut with kraut which was excellent and I also tried the roast beef au jus. The selection of beer was pretty good. They had about 47 beers on tap and about the same in the bottle. They had about all of the macro beers but just as many to make of imports. I don't recall seeing any US micro beers.

I there was one thing I would change about this place is, Get more beer!

Having lived in Daytona when I turned 21, I found finding good beer very, very difficult... but fortunalty there is the hidden gem called Bernkastle. Hidden under the Adams Mark Hotel right along the beach, they have a large beer menu, with over 40 beers on tap, such as Kostritzer, and Spaten and about 50 in bottle,so you can find something pretty good (nothing earth shattering but a better selection then anywhere you will find untill you hit Orlando) . The last time I was there they even had an American Micro, Lefthand... Gasp in the greater Daytona area this is a rarity!
They also serve sandwiches, nothing vegetarian and there is seating along the boardwalk so you can drink a beer and relax near the ocean. For Daytona Beach this is a great place, to bad the Adams Mark bought out the property and the last I heard they will be closing on the 4th of July.

If you're in Daytona, this is one of the few respites from Bud/Miller/Coors in the area. They have about forty beers on tap, and I'd say about thirty are of a German persuasion. They specialize in weissbeer, which is fine since the weather's generally pretty warm in Daytona. They also have several British ales, such as John Courage. However, they do not often update their tap/bottle list. My first two choices (Kostritzer Schwarzbier and Weihenstephaner Korbinian) were not available, and the waitress said they'd been out of them for a while. And my Tucher hefeweizen was served with a lemon (which was promptly removed), so if you so desire you should specify that you want a fruit-free beer.

The food was good but not outstanding. Expect a selection of sausages, pretty decent sauerkraut, and mighty fine German potato salad. The ambiance is mediocre for a German-themed place (it's a pretty small place), but it was nice to sit on the outside patio, sip weissbeer, and watch the waves roll in.

Go here because there's pretty much nowhere else. For Daytona, it's a shining star, but most other places it'd be just a flickering light bulb.
