Stopped in for Octoberfest. Great giant pretzel and Hofräu Hefe Weizen. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

The menu is exactly what you would expect given the name. Our group tried a variety of sausages. We especially liked the currywurst, smoked bratwurst and OGBH bratwurst. They serve Hofbrau beers. Nuff said.

Great beer, friendly service and you get a free lunch when you buy a beer! The food was also very good. Highly recommended.

Had dinner here with my son last Friday night. The waitress was delightful, the beer was wonderful, the food, (especially the radishes), was delicious, and the prices were below reasonable. I'll try to come back whenever I'm in Milwaukee again.

The best part about the Old German Beer Hall is the Goat (Kiss it!) and the Nail Game. While the selection of German beers on tap is minimal (4 or 5) they are all true German biers and served up fast. I was with a...More

we ate inside so got to enjoy the wonderful traditional German beer hall feel. There were long tables with benches for seating. We both had their OGBH bratwurst sandwich and because we were there during brunch, we were able to order small pretzel. Service was...More

No reservations are accepted that I've ever heard of. Not sure how far from the Hilton... A quick Google should clear that up! He should be able to get around just fine with a little assistance Enjoy the food and beer... More
