    Relax with a beer (and a BBQ?)

    by nhcram Updated Feb 12, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We only had a couple of beers here as we were meeting Ursula in Vienna for dinner. It is in a pretty seting just of the main street through an arch shaped entrance. We sat in the beer garden and the smell of the pizza from the inside and the BBQ outside was enough to make us want to stay. A relaxed atmosphere and on a warm day it was just the kind of place we needed to rest our feet and prepare for the Vienna traffic!
