I stopped there while in town recently for work, and in search of some beer and food. As others have said, the outside is unremarkable, but the inside looks like a very legitimate German Brew Haus. There are 2 bars - since I was there at about 5pm on a weekday, there were only a few people around one of the bars.

They had 5 of their own beers on tap. I tried both the Helles, and the Marzen/Amber. I really enjoyed the Amber (admittedly, I really enjoy most ambers); the Helles was also very good. The quality of both beers was excellent. The other 3 on tap were a Hefeweizen, a pilsner, and a blueberry something or other; aside from the 2 beers I tried, I found the other options to be a bit too light and fruity for my taste.

The food was also good, and seemed authentic (but I'm not a German food expert by any means).

First time visit. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside looks like a German beer hall, or at least as good as others I've seen in the U.S. Had the Pilsner,on of the three year round beers, and the Maibock, on the three current seasonals.

First the Maibock, unlike some others I've had this year, this one tasted good. It was flavorful and not harsh like some of the others I've had elsewhere. Pilsner was exceptionally drinkable. Staff at the bar was great, and I sampled the Imperial Pilsner, which didn't have the after dinner drink feel that other pubs had.

Food was very good,and we will be back if we find ourselves in the area

The signature beers, brewed by brewmaster Joseph Hayes, are the Black Forest Pilsner, BF Amber (Märzen/Oktoberfest), and Hefe-weizen. These beers a on tap all the time. While the Pilsner is extremely tasty, I admit a personal preference for the Hefe while I'm waiting for my food. Then I might switch to the Pilsner to pair with my brats and sauerkraut.

The brewing system at the Black Forest doesn't allow Joe to keep many seasonals on at one time, but you'll usually find two more beers on tap (in addition to the signature three). I've seen a Maibock, a Chocolate Bock, and a Smoked Cherry Dunkelweisse. Joe brews more than just German-style lagers. He's quite good at the British-style ales, such as ESB, Imperial Stout, and Scotch Ale.
