    The perfect choice for Father's Day! Even though it was a busy evening, the staff was friendly and efficient. We chose this restaurant because we wanted to bring our two dogs, and we were given a long table outside near the entrance of the restaurant. There was plenty of space between our table and the others, so we felt very comfortable. The staff was very kind to our pups and even brought them water. We really like the generous portions as well as the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. We will definitely be back!

    Excellent traditional German entrees plus a large selection of beers. Bavarian or Austrian atmosphere and pleasant service. Although a bit pricy, the food is well worth it.

    This is a regular destination for us. Our family came here for my husband's birthday and it was great. I had the non-alcoholic elderflower cocktail (I love this drink) and my daughter had a version with alcohol. My husband had a beer. My husband had the mussels and potato and bacon soup. My daughter also had the mussels and I had the kleine Nürnberger würstchen. We all shared a medium German salad and potato pancakes. The food was delicious and no one went home hungry. I ordered a slice of black forest cake for dessert and it was as good as any I've had in Germany. We had a great time eating on their patio in front of the restaurant. Very gemütlich!

    After more than 2 years away due to the pandemic, we made a return to one of my favorite places in the east bay, and as always, it didn’t disappoint. A tasty cocktail at the bar before dinner, followed up by a tasty meal in the beer garden. The ice cold Pilsner was the crowning touch to a fun night out. Well done, Speisekammer!

    Go-to authentic German "Gasthaus Essen" that my family loves. The four of us had the Schweinebraten, Kaesespaetzle, Reibekuchen and the every popular Jaegerschnitzel. Everyone was delighted with their order and was thoroughly full. For lovers of German beers, I highly recommend the Traunstein Dunkel (Hofbrau). I've never seen it on the tap menu and it was splendid!! Wish I could find over here near Walnut Creek. We were seated immediately and service was attentive. Love this place.

    We love this place. Food is always excellent, staff always really attentive, not to quiet. Not crazy noisy (unless live music) although we haven’t heard music since Covid. (Not sure if they no longer have or we just haven’t eaten on the right day. Highly recommended place to eat.

    I'm sad we had not been to Speisekammer earlier. This is German food done just-right. We came for a milestone birthday and had a very easy, delicious, meal. Drinks were good and our son, who prefers burgers, had one and said it was really good. Service was really friendly and thoughtful.

    Took my wife, our children's mother, to Speisekammer for an early Mother's Day dinner, and came away knowing it was exactly the right choice. The waitress was friendly, perky, and perfectly tuned in to our sense of fun and humor; the service was so fast, the speed of light felt endangered. The food (sauerbraten; jaeger...something) was 1) Easily enough for two; 2) perfectly delicious. The expense was such that we are validated in having come to Speisekammer many times before and will continue to do so.

    What made me decide on Speiskammer for lunch were the stellar reviews found on Google and Yelp. I am sad to say that I found the food to be nothing like what I had read in the reviews. I ordered the typical German dishes, schnitzel with spätzle, I also had a pretzel as an appetizer, all were very underwhelming and the flavors were very bland. Additionally the spätzle came out a bit cold.. I’d like to preface with the fact that I am a bit of a foodie and have eaten at many restaurants throughout the Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento areas. Internationally, I have travelled to Germany on several occasions and had authentic German food, this didn’t come close. Having said that, the drinks and Apple strudel were very good! Additionally the service was good, our waitress was friendly and the ambiance was fantastic. If this is what you enjoy I’d highly recommend but if it’s delicious authentic German food, I would pass on this restaurant.

    Everything was delicious! We had the potato pancakes, the potato soup (definitely get this), stuffed cabbage, some kind of sausage with a side of fries, combination of pickled vegetables, and apple strudel. Not a weak dish out of the lot. Excellent service and great beer selection.
