We went out for dinner expecting a nice service restaraunt. This is a buffet. If you enjoy buffets, then it's pretty good. BUT, we wanted service. The food seections were ample, but the quality of the food is average.

Food is not great but I like the idea of a hofbrau, they have a nice selection of beer so that solves a lot of the problems. Large portions and fat people.

I wasn't expecting much, so I wasn't too disappointed. I had the meatloaf. They actually put plain, straight from the can, tomato sauce on it. Now, to be fair, the sign DID say that they put it on the loaf, but I thought for sure...More
