    The Weeping Radish Brewery and Bavarian Restaurant: Three Locations

    I have not eaten in any of these restaurants. We considered it, but eventually ate across the street. I did have a picture taken from the car.

    I don't usually put a restaurant under the state, unless they have more than one location in the state and are not a national chain. These people have three locations. The one that most people know about in Manteo, one in Corolla, and they are opening a new place in Jarvisburg on the Mainland. They also brew their own beer and have tours of the brewery both in Manteo and Jarvisburg.

    . Brewery tours take place during the summer months each day at 1 PM. There is no charge for the tours. Brewery Tours in the shoulder seasons are by appointment.

    In case you wondered -from their menu: "The name “Weeping Radish” refers to the large German radish that is typically served as an accompaniment to beer in Bavarian restaurants and Gasthäuser. It resembles an American turnip and has a sharp, crisp flavor reminiscent of mild horseradish. The radish is thinly sliced in a spiral, then lightly salted and put back together. The salt draws the moisture from the radish and gives it the appearance of weeping."

    Favorite Dish: They have seafood, steak and sandwiches but these are sample German entrees

    Sauerbraten . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $17.99

  • Weeping Radish: A bit of Bavaria on the OBX

    by MANXCATS Written Jun 28, 2007

    Coming from the UK it's great to find real food , good ale and a friendly atmosphere. There's a nice garden outside to walk in. The name is really what attracted us when we did our research on the Internet.

    Favorite Dish: Sauerkraut with frankfurters......and the beer was good.

    A fun, very atmospheric German restaurant that offers tours of the microbrewery and has incredible food! The restaurant has a main floor and an upstairs loft overlooking the main floor. While we were there for my father's and my birthdays, the entire restaurant (customers and employees alike) VERY HEARTILY and with beer mugs in hand sang a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday. They also welcomed my young children and made them feel comfortable. Check out their website!

    Favorite Dish: Other than their microbrewed beers, which you MUST try, their cheesecake is also delicious!!

    Favorite Dish: All Bavarian style foods served.
