Dodson Street Beer Garden

Well, calling Dodson Street Beer Garden a “German restaurant” is like saying a pineapple is the president of a fruit salad – close, but not quite! We’ve got an English name that’s more British than a cup of tea during a downpour. Our menu is a culinary United Nations with influences from four nations, and our beer selection is like a passport to flavor town. While we don’t have German beers on draft, our German-style beers are so authentic, they make Oktoberfest jealous! And those smoked wings? They’re so good, they fly off the plate faster than a chicken trying to escape a barbecue! So, come for the vibes, stay for the international feast – just don’t call us strictly German, we’re more like a global gastronomic party! 🍻🌍
