Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden

czech republic

Warm-weather place to be, even if it does get a bit crowded these days. Still great prices and great outdoor garden for drinking pitchers with friends. There is always a restaurant, and the outdoor kiosk grill that used to create long lines is now all done by the wait staff. The sausages are excellent (if a bit expensive), but without the self-service pickles and sauerkraut bar has lost some of the fun. A side of humongous seasoned fries ($4) is a steal!


It remains to be seen whether the opening of the vast new Studio Squared beer garden will siphon business away from Bohemian, but in my opinion, this remains the place to go. The Czech potato pancakes ($8, above) are very tasty, but somewhere about halfway through the order the grease becomes a little too much to handle. Thankfully they are served with sour cream and applesauce, both of which create a terrific accompaniment. A full order of these should probably be shared between two or three people to avoid stomach aches.
