While the food was good, overall we were disappointed. It began when we entered the restaurant. We had reservations via OpenTable and upon arrival no one acknowledged us. Finally after several minutes of just standing there the bartender said sit anywhere, never asking if we had OpenTable reservations or anything. We seated ourselves and again after a few minutes a waitress came to ask if we wanted drinks and give us a minute. There was a menu available via scan/app. We ordered drinks and appetizers; they came quickly and were very good to taste. We ordered our meal and that was the last we saw of our waitress until our main was served. The food was good, we felt the restaurant was understaffed and didn't care if we were there or not. We finished our main and ordered desert, which again was well prepared and tasty. After receiving the bill, we paid and left, never receiving a thank you or come again. We will not be returning.
Everything was great. Tony was especially good! Many thanks.
Great Bavarian atmosphere! Went for Oktoberfest, enjoyed their German beer on draft and special menu. Next time - bring my growler to fill!
Service was slow. Atmosphere was drab & kind of loud. Appetizers were delicious. Entrees and spaetle had a weird flavor profile. Will not go again.
Went to celebrate Oktoberfest. We had a great time! Great service, great food and great entertainment! I love this place!
The service is always exceptional. The food is good and there is a good variety.
This is a fun place to go.
Finally venturing out to Alexandria, VA during the pandemic. Decided to try out the Village Brauhaus German restaurant in downtown Alexandria for lunch because we were missing Europe. We were scheduled to travel to Germany during the summer but for obvious reasons that trip has been postponed. So what better way to feel the essence...we booked a reservation and went. Although the outdoor seating is not ideal and a bit noisy, can’t blame the restaurant, we are not yet ready to eat indoors so the only outdoor seating is the front sidewalk on the main street. But we enjoyed the food and service very much. We shared the potato pancakes and the Brauhaus Wurst Platter which is a sampling of different sausages. We enjoyed every bite! My husband’s grandfather was from Hamburg, so it felt like home to him. You can’t come to a German restaurant and not partake in the beer...my husband enjoyed a dark roasted lager, Hacker-Pechora Dunkel ! I of course enjoyed a lovely Sauvignon Blanc.
Food was fantastic, staff was friendly but not hovering. Please support this business!
Love this place! The food and beer is wonderful and I feel like I’m in Bavaria.
Fantastic german food. Great music and atmosphere
We went for Oktoberfest and it was awesome. Staff was friendly and did a great job checking on us as we were sitting outside. Several German draft beer options and plenty of sausage options to choose from. Pretzel and food was all outstanding. They make their own sauerkraut too which was excellent. I was impressed. I expected more of a bar doing German things but this was authentic and I will certainly be back!
Excellent food and beer, great vibe, and terrific service
I would never go back there again. Our food was not good.
Our server was great and kept us informed because of the dinner the hub ordered.
This place never disappoints. Friendly service and fantastic food. We always enjoy coming here for beer & food.
On August 8th, I made a reservation specifically for "Outdoor Seating" due to concerns regarding COVID and the fact that it was a Saturday night so I knew it could be difficult to find an outdoor table in Alexandria. When we arrived, the hostess and the manager told me, "We don't take reservations for outdoor seating" despite the fact that they pulled up my reservation and saw that we were confirmed for one. The manager did say that he could give us a free round of drinks either seat us inside (which was not an option for us and the whole reason we made the outdoor reservation in the first place) or we'd have to wait at least 30 minutes (and probably longer since there were only a few outdoor tables). Since there was no telling how long we would actually have to wait, we left to find another place to eat. I understand that mistakes can happen and they obviously made an error when they entered their listing on OpenTable but this was a feature on the website that had already been in place for several weeks so it surprises me that it took until our visit for this mistake to be discovered. Then, as if that wasn't bad enough, later that night, I discovered that we were listed as a "no show". They never checked us in! I called the restaurant immediately and the person I spoke to already knew about the earlier incident. He apologized and said that he would leave a note for the manager to fix the mistake on my OpenTable profile and call me back to make things right. He told me that he agreed that both of these issues were unacceptable. So, It is now 5 days later and I have not received a phone call from the manager. In fact, the only way that I was even able to put in this review was by contacting OpenTable so that they could change the status such that it was no longer listed as a "no show".
Loved it! First restaurant experience in months and felt very safe. Service and food were wonderful.
Very good food and friendly service. Good beer and wine selection.
First time eat out since February. My husband and I decided to have a special anniversary dinner in our favorite German restaurant, and we love it. Food was great, service was good and no crowd. It was Friday at 5 pm. We had have a free desert, which was a nice surprise for us. Great anniversary dinner🎉
Beer and appetizers were great. The goulash was served on fusilli instead of egg noodles. The schnitzel was good but a little tough. I’d definitely go back for happy hour!
Totally a ‘meh’ experience. It reminds me of someplace I would have gone in high school with my nerdy friends. Or the inside of a restaurant at a theme park. For beer—great. Food...mediocre.
Last chemo treatment
Fantastic restaurant with delicious food and giant portions.
Great food, open seating area with lots of space from everyone else (covid). Beer and drinks were spot on!!!
Fun atmosphere with great German beer and yummy food.
The Brauhaus is always a great place to visit, we enjoy the food and the wonderful German Beer. This place is our families favorite place to get together, and enjoy the great atmosphere.
The Village Brauhaus is great addition to Alexandria's eateries.
We booked for a birthday dinner, happy that there's a German restaurant closer than an 90-minute drive. But overall it wasn't what we hoped. The best part was the cold wurst & cheese appetizer. They've taken the sauerbraten off the menu and now make it available as a sandwich only - this is not reflected in the online menu. The Wiener schnitzel was good, but my wife and our guest found the goulash under-seasoned and underwhelming. I would recommend this only to allow others to judge for themselves.
Enjoyed our gathering. Shared our entrees after our appetizers. Everyone enjoyed their meals
Our senior AV engineer is heading back to Germany an suggested that we send him off German style. Great send off.
Delicious and authentic food and beverage. Whether you have a small or a large party, the restaurant is able to accommodate. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. I have a great time every time I visit and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a hearty meal that isn't overpriced.
Bavarian-style ambiance and food/drink. Excellent beer and wursts and the German pretzel is fantastic.
The wait staff were friendly and cheerful, the pretzel appetizer was fresh, hot , and good. The accompanying mustards were good, however the cheese sauce was dull. The first main we tried to order was unavailable (although this was not noted on their web site), the others items desired were available. The Jägerschnitzel was over cooked in what appeared to be old oil (color and smell) and contained inedible bits of what appears to be joint material. The accompanying mushroom gravy, red cabbage, and spätzle were bland with little to no flavor. Overall not a great experience!
What a great time! Classic German beer hall, great food, beer, and ambiance. The noise was a little high but frankly that's part of the beer hall experience. Enjoy!
Amazing authentic German food. German wife approved!
