I visited Hofbrauhaus on April 25, 2018 with a group. The staff was very accomodating and provided quick service. Food was fine, atmosphere was great.

We were on a bus trip when we visited this restaurant. The food was not very good and not hot at all. Very disappointed, would never go again or recommend it to others! Seems to me they knew nothing about preparing pork and sauerkraut!

First the atmosphere at this location is electric! The food and servers were on point! Probably the best Reuben I have ever had. Lots of food form the price! And the live entertainment is bonus. A very large selection of beer to try as well!!!

Loved this place so much we ate here twice! The pretzels and beer cheese are amazing, and the second time we ate there they had live German music. The beer is good too! Great atmosphere and fun for the whole family.
