The biggest thing here is the beer! They've got some of the finest German beers this side of Munich.

Germany Restaurant and Bar. Authentic decor, beer list, and menu. The food is so delicious. Though it could be crowded at time, you just need to enjoy the atmosphere. Try the boot.

This is as much of a restaurant as it is a bar. Polka you way in for a "boot" of German beer or a plate of authentic spaetzle.
