Fodor's Review

The German immigrants who settled in Lincoln Square have mostly moved on, making room for a generation of urban families, but they left behind the Brauhaus, an Oktoberfest of a restaurant featuring a live band playing nightly polkas and waltzes that bring old-timers and new converts to the dance floor. Though the atmosphere is the draw over the food, you can't go wrong with the bratwurst and sauerkraut or the schnitzel. Large tables add to the convivial atmosphere: you

may make some new friends. As expected, there is a good selection of German beer.

It doesn't get better in Lincoln Square

Try the saurbraten - it's the best you'll find in the city. Elderly and young alike come to polka, booz it up and gorge themselves on authentic German Cuisine. No one takes themselves seriously here and it's a dynamite spot to kick back with friends and laugh all evening.
