As we visit an exhibition regularly, we end up to celebrate here every year. Food is excellent and the beer brewed here is simply unsurpassable!

The Alt Giessen is a good mix of brewery and restaurant. It is always busy so try to book if you can and consider the brewery tour. The menu has just changed and still offers a wide range of dishes from traditional German to house specials. The beer served is brewed onsite and you can even order some to take... More

We were ther with a group of 10 business persons on a very hot evening. Booking was lost. We were seated behind the entrance wall of the washing-up room. The whole evening we had the dusty smell of the trash cans with food rests.

Good standard German food, some changes on the new menu, missed Bretzel (pretzels), beer as good as always. Very friendly staff and nice outdoor seating. Very good place to come with friends and family for a hearty meal.

I visited around 6 times with friends or family. They offer really tatsty beers they brewed by themselves. The restaurant is very spacious with various sets of tables for different occasions and groups and it is located under their hotel. They also open outside tables in small garden. In general the food is yummy but not that special, with resonable... More

I have heard through the grapevine that the food is average, the beers are good but the service is usually unfriendly. This is the impression many friends have. We only ordered 1 dish which was chicken wings and I was surprised at how big the dish was and how delicious it tasted. The beer choice was unique and they had... More
