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.

This was my 4th or 5th time to the Hofbrau over the last 10 years - so I'm not a regular. We consider it a special occasion place because it's pricey - not because it's a fancy place. Staff was friendly and good. Beer was...More

Authentic and Delicious German Food. Daily Specials are offered and worth getting. A variety of sausages are available (Bratwurst, Thuringer, Weiss and others) and wonderful traditional sides (German Potato Salad, Spaetzel, Red Cabbage, etc.) are great. A great selection of bottled beers and a few...More
