Bavarian Bierhaus brings a taste of Germany to Music City!


There is certainly no shortage of places to grab a beer in Nashville, a city where honky-tonks and craft beer taverns abound. But when it comes to getting an authentic German bier in a warm, friendly Oktoberfest atmosphere, there is only one place to go – Bavarian Bierhaus!


Bavarian Bierhaus opened in April 2017 at Opry Mills, Middle Tennessee’s largest destination shopping center, and is directly across the street from the famous Grand Ole Opry and the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. Only 10 miles from downtown Nashville, the 15,000-square-foot massive bierhall offers the fun, excitement and culture of Bavaria right here in Music City.


The bierhall has 500 seats inside and 120 more seats in the biergarten outside, as well as a large private dining room that can hold up to 100 guests. There are 12 large TVs scattered throughout the restaurant and bar area, so guests can cheer on their favorite sports teams.

Bavarian Bierhaus Pretzels


Not only is Bavarian Bierhaus a great place to catch a game, it’s also a live music venue featuring authentic German bands from right here in Nashville and across the country. Patrons are encouraged to get up and dance on the benches and swing their steins back and forth like in a true Munich bierhall. There is nothing like this experience elsewhere in Nashville!


Guests come to the Bavarian Bierhaus for more than just the entertainment – they come for the bier and the authentic Bavarian cuisine. Patrons can enjoy 12 beers on tap imported from Bavaria and various German-brewed bottles. Biers can be enjoyed as a flight or a stein along with delicious authentic cuisine.


Menu items include a range of items, from appetizers to soups and salads, to a variety of sausages from Milwaukee’s Usinger Sausage company, to schnitzels. The family-friendly restaurant also offers a children’s menu. Now, Nashville locals and guests are treated to Bavarian delicacies that are hard to come by in this region.


Menu sampling:

  • Giant imported Pretzels with Sweet Mustard (or try the bier cheese spread!)
  • Kartoffelpuffer (potato pancakes)
  • Hot Bacon Spinach Salat
  • Bavarian Onion Soup
  • Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich
  • Reuben
  • Currywurst
  • Schnitzel (pork or chicken)
  • Oktoberfest Chicken
  • Schweinshaxe (roasted crisp pork shank)
  • Pretzel Pudding
  • Apfelstrudel (apple strudel)
  • Black Forest Cake


How did Nashville get so lucky as to get one of the few authentic Bavarian restaurants in the U.S.? Two American soldiers stationed in Germany met after they returned home and realized they had both fallen in love with the Bavarian culture while abroad. They decided that Americans, especially those in Nashville, home to one of the soldiers, needed to experience the incredible culture they fell in love with, and thus the Bavarian Bierhaus was born.


The soldiers also wanted to make sure their restaurant created a feeling the Bavarians call Gemütlichkeit, which is a warm, inviting feeling Bavarians exude when they make visitors feel welcome and at home. In Nashville, we recognize this as Southern hospitality.


Don’t miss the opportunity to try this new destination for fun for the whole family in Music City. Find the Bavarian Bierhaus at 121 Opry Mills Drive, Nashville, Tenn. For more information and the full menu, visit Bavarian Bierhaus Nashville.


Restaurant Hours: Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m.–10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.–midnight
