"My friend is from Munich so we had to have a German beer experience. We were passing by on our way to Sacramento and we stopped in here based on yelp. Can't tell you how great this place is. I'm not normally a beer drinker myself preferring red wine but when I had a Hefe Weizen I actually had a second mug. It was delicious with a slice of lemon. The pizza was awesome and the burger was cooked to perfection! I highly recommend this place"

"We met for a graduation party with out of town guests. It was a wonderful experience for all of us! Appetizers came quickly - fried calamari especially light and tasty. The most amazing imported cider! Beer on tap has such a wide selection, everyone was happy! Burgers cooked perfectly. A grand time was had by all. Thanks Sudwerk!"

"From the time we were seated until our food was served was one and a half hours. No explanation and the restaurant was two thirds empty. We sat outside because it was noisy inside. The weather was perfect, all was fine except the service was non-existent. We finally left to get dessert elsewhere. I would not go back. It's not the good German menu and good service I remembered."

"The food was amazing. Lots of flavor and good portions. The service was good at first than it got slow. I waited for my waiter for 15 to 20 min just to ask for a refill and ask for napkins. Also I felt rushed brought my check too early I wasn't even done with ordering dessert. Overall food was great but they can use improvement on their customer service."

"We had a larger group and the service was great. Everyone got the right order and the server was pleasant, friendly, and efficient. We managed to be there on a playoff game day at lunch, so the noise level was a bit intense. It made conversation challenging at times, but not impossible. I miss some of the old German dishes that Sudwerk's used to have, but the food was good, the menu had a good variety, and the quantity was more than sufficient.
The reservation process through Open Table was easy, including making a last minute change to the size of the party.
Could be challenging for those on a gluten-free diet as there is no separate menu."

"Our server was prompt and very pleasant, but the burgers were overcooked and the appetizer never arrived (the server apologized). The beer was excellent, as expected. An earlier visit with a large group was much better, so I'll chalk this up to a one-off when the kitchen was not paying attention on a Friday night."
