Love the Hofbrau. It is a mainstay in the 'northend'. I always go for the pepper pot soup on Tuesdays. I understand the sausage, schnitzel, brat plates are tasty as well. And as expected, fantastic German beer selection.

Enjoyed eating here. Good food, reasonable prices. Casual dining. Not the greatest of neighborhoods but plenty of parking in their lot.

Best of the best wish I could frequent it more. Love their beer list and staff is the finest. They have a lot of great german food, but their soups are one of the reasons to stop by. They have some of the best chili dogs in the area, and their chili everyday but Saturday is some of the best.... More

The atmosphere is very European, the food is great and the prices are good for what you get. A little dark inside so be prepared.

We love the Hofbrau. Great food and beers. Brings back memories of Germany. Recommend the German potatoes salad; the smoked & grilled pork chops; the Bratwurst sampler (especially the Thüringer sausage); the Ham Shank; and good mustards with your beer. I do not recommend the knockwurst. I would give the place 5 stars, but the atmosphere is a bit dated,... More

Although not as big as the original Hofbräu, the food was awesome and the beer selection was very authentic. Service was wonderful. Atmosphere and German music made me very happy and nostalgic. I would love to go back!

Good food, unique place. Low key, mostly a place to go with some friends and have fun. Service is good, and the staff always makes you feel welcome.

We have been to Germany several times and love the food there even more than English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Mexican, or Italian style foods. This Hofbrau has food just like that found in the original Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Its decoration and food is the same as countless places in Germany and Austria. We have eaten there many times and each... More

My friend and I went out for lunch in Hofbrau -- the German restaurant. Haven't been there for a while.The restaurant is located off center, near the river on the south side of the city. Spacious parking lot, the atmosphere inside was ... busy! Lunch time. We both ordered beef sandwiches with the German potato salad. Order is done by... More
