Brauhaus Schmitz (South Philadelphia) - German Food and Beer!


Brahaus Schmitz is nestled right on South Street in South Philly.  It rose from the ashes of another local German destination's demise, Ludwig's Garten.  In fact, owner, Doug Hager spent time behind the bar at Ludwig's during their heyday.

This place does everything right in terms of traditional German fare and all German style brews.
During any of the international soccer matches, this place is party central and the crowd becomes engaged with the games. 
Above, you'll see see the Kartoffelpuffer, or potato pancake that's served with chunky applesauce and sour cream.  Really good stuff.

To the right is Spaten Maibock, which is a limited treat that is only ever found on draft.

Below, is the schnitzel sandwich, which I had with some spaetzle.  A tasty meal that I'll continue to come back to.
Of course, no German restaurant trip would be complete without
a tall glass of Aventinus.
