German-Style Bier Hall

Welcome to Hessen Haus

The Hessen Haus perfectly recreates the authentic atmosphere of an old-world German bier hall. The imported German biers on tap, authentic German fare on the menu, and traditional bier hall interior create a lively yet cozy atmosphere where large crowds gather to pass the boot and small groups find themselves making new friends.

Authentic German Fare

50+ German Biers on Tap

Featured Food
This delicious absurdity is guaranteed to knock out any appetite! A nod to the Germany’s most popular street food; we pile on TWO half-pound Angus beef patties, spicy Hungarian candied bacon, caramelized onion, and chopped knockwurst (see what we did there?), on a fresh-baked potato rosette bun and smother it with Haus-made curry sauce and lots and lots of cheese, and top it all off with fresh hot fries and mayo. Bring you’re A-game! You are going to need a friend, a cot, and a ride home after this bad boy!
