Ate outside in February due to Covid, so it was a little chilly, despite their best efforts with firepits and heaters. Food and ambiance were fabulous, looking forward to returning to eat indoors.

Great Food. Great Atmosphere. Great Beer. It's so old timey with the pickled everything. So German with the Spatzle.

Waldmann's never disappoints, even during a pandemic. Food and beer is always spot on. Appreciated the social distancing between tables and the mask wearing by staff.

I had the Wurst platter and shared with my Friend. To be honest being from Germany that was the worst stuff I ever ate and my friend agreed. Nothing on the Menu to me sounded German other then the Pretzel and Sauerkraut. I have been to your place last year and loved the Liverkaese that you had and was disappointed it was off the Menu. I do love the place and the service was very good. The Food we ordered I was very disappointed with.

On a tour of Twin Cities breweries, Waldmann was a standout. Friendly staff, thoughtfully crafted surroundings, engaging menu and honest, well-executed beer. Others can have the cavernous warehouse breweries that seem to be the norm; Waldmann offers us heart and soul and now occupies the very top of my Mpls/St. Paul brewery list. A must-stop, whether you're visiting the Twin Cities or looking for a solid neighborhood meet-up spot with your friends.

It was a quiet lunch so mcKensie took great care of us. Must have been the owner. The Pretzel and Mustard was awesome and we ordered the sausage plate and should have kept the left over mustard from the pretzel plate. Beer was awesome and McKensie knows his business. We'll be back

Waldman is hands down one of my favorite breweries in the cities. Plenty of space outdoors to enjoy a couple beers and not worry about others crowding your area. The service staff is friendly as well. Nice to have some semblance of normalcy :)

I was impressed with how Waldmann handled the Covid safety protocols. We were seated on the patio: tables were more than six feet apart, hand sanitizer was available on every table, serving staff was masked. Having a reservation system allowed for a safe number of customers. Thank you Waldmann staff for providing a safe and enjoyable experience!

Waldmann is doing it right. Tables in the biergarten spaced far enough apart, sanitizing, masks, one-way traffic. Their food is always great and their beer is the best craft beer in the Twin Cities, in my opinion. Good job, Waldmann! Looking forward to coming back soon.
