Located at 1132 Hempstead Turnpike in Franklin Square, the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant has been serving up traditional German specialties and continental cuisine since 1939. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday, beginning at 12 noon. More than two acres in size, Long Island’s most authentic German Biergarten / Beer Garden is located behind the restaurant and features specialties like bratwurst, leberkäse and giant soft pretzels, the best German beer on tap and live music, all with no cover charge.
In addition, the Plattduetsche offers catering facilities for groups of 10 to 700, off-site catering packages, a late-night menu, festivals and theme nights throughout the year. There are more than two dozen German clubs that meet here regularly to celebrate German-American heritage and uphold long-held traditions.
