This place is deceivingly large. Walk inside and to the left is a smallish bar with maybe room for 30 people among various booths. Walk to the right, though, and you enter a large restaurant with hundreds of seats, and a bar along the left hand wall. There is also a courtyard out back with some seating, which looked rather nice. Unfortunately, there were no seats available in any of these areas, so we got shoved in the back room. While it was still nice back there, it was only my group and one other table, which greatly disappointed me as I heard the accordion playing and singing in the main room. Oh well.
The service was pretty bad. The servers acted exasperated every time they came to take an order, and there were not exactly frequent in their trips to check on us. The selection consisted of a beer they brewed (which was somehow not available on tap, only in bottle), which unfortunately tasted an awful amount like Red Oak and Carolina Blonde... huge buttery mess. Anyway, I stuck with Budvar, of which they had both the light and the dark, served in appropriate glassware.
The food was decent... certainly nowhere near the best I had during my visit to Praha, but palatable. The benefit of all this is that most entrees were around $5, and Budvar was 28 kronin for a .5L (this converts to about $1.20).
I'd say it's worth a trip to go here, if for nothing aside from the jovial ambience. Just make sure you get a seat outside or in the main room.

As far as food goes, their offerings are tasty and reasonably priced (considering they offer English on their menus). A lunch with beer (or two) should place one within the 140kc range (a little over $5). I had a beef gouloush with knobels and it was enjoyed. Two beers accented the experience.
The compound is about half a block from where I work and it seems to do a very significant tourist business. With that being said, one cant expect it to be cheap. Its about as reasonable as youre going to get if you want an English or German menu.
The staff is dressed in the expected beer hall garb and the atmosphere is much more traditional than many of the upscale and posh drinking establishments you'll find elsewhere.
Service is good but of the European tradition. Dont expect to be waited on hand and foot. Beer is always fresh and quickly replenished.

Visited this complex of restaurant+bar+minibrewery+pension on my trip in the Czech Republic this past summer. The bar itself has more than seven or eight beers to offer, on tap and in bottles, with the Budvar range as the main theme. Crowded, smokey, but relaxing and friendly.
The restaurant itself, adjacent to the beer bar, is nothing more (or less) than a Czech-style beer hall with spartan, wooden furnitures where one can sit down having a quality meal at reasonable prices. The only beer on tap in the restaurant was Budvar 12%, so fresh and nice that even my GF couldn't resist a small one. After the satisfying meal, the amiable auntie-looking waitress told me they had their own beers brewed on the same site!! And that was when I got to learn that a minibrewery was situated upstairs~~ It turned out to be "Old Gott", a beer sitting in-between Vienna red lager and Pilsner. Having enjoyed a bottle of their home-brewed nectar, as it was not available on draught (at least not in the restaurant I guess...), I couldn't resist taking away another one, and promised another enthusiastic waiter that I'd go back to visit the minibrewery the next day, which sadly never materialised...
Overall, this is a decent, not posh, restaurant with friendly service (as happened to me) where one could easily and happily spend several hours by visiting the minibrewery first, buying some nicely selected bottled-beers and souvenirs, then having two pints at the lovely cozy bar, before sitting down for a quality meal. (maybe I shouldn't mention this here but a wine bar just one block down the small street is superb as well...;-) Recommended~~
