Great German food and beers. Plenty of lunch selection for kids and adults. Did not attend during dinner, so not sure if kids would be good in the evening, but looked like the do have live entertainment. Would recommend trying "Samples" of beers before ordering.

Stopped here after Octoberfest. A long wait, but we were able to get a seat at the bar. Had the worst platter. All delightful, especially the sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Always a hit!

On our walk back to our hotel after having dined elsewhere on a balmy summer's evening, we walked into the Hofbrauhaus beer garden & seated ourselves at the bar. We tried three of the HB beers between the 2 of us and enjoyed all of...More
