I thought this place was charming. The line gets real long, so order your +1 beer with your initial order. Pedro's rice bowl with tri tip was awesome as were the seasoned fries. The beef empanadas were, meh! The hefeweizen Stein was great as well! Outdoor seating only so bring layers for the fickle Berkeley winds.
Food is very overpriced and not that good. I ordered the 12-oz cardboard bowl of vegan minestrone soup “with beans” for $12! (I searched and searched and finally found a few beans.) That’s $1 per ounce (remember an ounce is 2 tablespoons) for soup that tasted like the cardboard cup and plastic lid it came in. You don't even pay that much in a nice restaurant for much better soup.The beer was good.
We chose this place for a small family gathering and it was a great decision. They had a wide array of outdoor seating, an excellent beer selection, and delicious food.
Was very happy we checked this place out after another restaurant was too busy! They have rotating food vendors, a large and eclectic outdoor space to sit - a little waterfall, Adirondack chairs, and an area for kids (chalkboard walls to draw on and other things I'd imagine would keep kids pretty busy)!
Beautiful spacious outdoor dining with plenty of heat lamps! Food choices were good. Only negative is the loaded nachos which had some kind of fake cheese sauce on it. Disappointing since it doesn't take much to use real cheese. Had the tortilla soup and salad. Both were very well prepared and yummy. Would still come back to try the others on the menu.
This is such a chill little neighborhood gem. Beer selection is great and the food never disappoints. Get the tri-tip rice bowl, trust me it's amazing. It's the type of thing you'll make excuses to to stop by for.
Nice outdoor setting with a fire pit. Good food and diverse beer selection in sizes from flights to huge mugs.
Nice outdoor venue with good food. The staff could use some hospitality training, though. $18.25 for a tuna sandwich and tea was a bit much.
Great food and beverage selections!
Great place with decent but slightly expensive beer. I think they should have one less lazy hazy beer but otherwise there are a lot of non beer choices. It gets crowded about 6pm on the weekdays. Plenty of seating the bathrooms are usually quite clean. You can get a huge Stein of beer if you don’t like to make multiple trips to the counter which can take some time on busy nights. Brazil Cafe serving up some good food.
Westbrae Biergarten is a fantastic spot for sippin’ a nice cold one with your friends or taking that special someone on a first date. Don’t forget to grab some fries from Pedro’s Brazil Cafe! Five stars! highly recommend ?
Place is really nice. Went for a quick bite and a couple of drinks. It's clean and they have decent amount of alcoholic and non alcoholic options.
Great food and atmosphere
Good atmosphere. Tritip sandwich is supposedly the best thing on the menu. Tasted like wet tanbark with a hint of pickle. Not trying to be dramatic. But was a little sad.
Good beer selection and a nice area to sit in. Parking may be a little limited but worth the trip.
