First, let me say that one good reason for going here is the beer. They consistently have a fresh rotation of interesting and delicious beers both local and international. The food is another matter. I've eaten here several times and the food quality ranged from fair to sub parI had one decent offering here, a trout dish. A smoked salmon over egg appetizer. was also OK. Also went a few times for Happy Hour, and the wings were very good, but they disappeared quickly, and weren't replenished. The most consistently good item on the menu is the German pretzel. I recently ate a fish and chips that was so disappointing, it defied description. It must have been pre frozen, and the cod (or so it was advertised) was enrobed in a thick, doughy, soggy crust, and arrived at my table at slightly above room temperature. So much for fish & chips being hot and crispy. At $15.00 this was an outrage. I should have sent it back but had already eaten too much of it because I was hungry. Hop Angel would do well to take heed of it's sister pub, The Grey Lodge, which exhibits consistent excellence in both its beer AND food.

I've tried this place three times and it has gotten better each time. My only issue is that sometimes the beer should, in my opinion, be served in a different type of glass. I like the food a lot, but I'm not that familiar with German food so I don't know if it is authentic or not- I just know that what I had I enjoyed. The atmosphere was cozy and the server was friendly.

I give them credit for trying, but there is nothing authentic or good about the German fare here. The beer menu is a better draw.
