Instead of ordering a sit-down meal of schnitzel under the retractable roof, hit up the grill guy for a fat kielbasa loaded with kraut and steer your brood toward one of the wood tables in the rustic hall. Imaginative youngsters just might believe they’re in Bavaria rather than Brooklyn. On a weekend afternoon, savor any of the Czech and German draft beers, like the Schneider Weisse. You’ll want to leave by early evening, before the bar is infiltrated by revelers chugging mammoth steins.

This is a great bar for group outings—it's huge! There are three separate rooms, all with giant picnic-style tables that can fit a bunch of people, and servers will take your order anywhere. There's often German music playing in the front room, and the beers are giant and reasonably priced, plus authentically European. You HAVE to grub on some of the food here, like goulash, veil schniztel, pappardelle, short ribs, and my favorite, the spatzle and scallion potato pancakes. There's also a cool interior with a very pub-like atmosphere and lots of ancient photos and paintings on the walls. Definitely a fun place for Oktoberfest activities or a big 'ol birthday, with plenty of bars to hop on over to afterward.
