The Peoria Hofbrau offers the best German food we could find in Illinois. They have an authentic German menu with delicious brown gravy to go with the schnitzel and spaetzle. They also have a huge German beer list, we just wish you could order beer by the liter like in Munich. We would score this restaurant a 5/5 if it wasn't so expensive.

Known for its beer tours but you will love its amazing German fare tucked along the Illinois river. From red cabbage to spatzle you can't miss the aroma of the delicious cuisine. We love coming here and enjoying all the food and beverages this place has to offer. Enjoy this one of a kind hangout.

We found this place on the way to the steakhouse one night a couple of years ago and finally went back to give it a try. It was very busy on a Saturday night around 6:30. We put our name on a list and squeezed into the bar area where one stool was available. The bartender offered us drinks and advised us we could eat at the bar if we didn't want to wait. We took him up on it. The seating area is only on the first floor and the tables and chairs are very close together. If you're not seated you are in the way. It was packed but the atmosphere was awesome. Everyone was friendly and having a great time. I ordered jaeger schnitzel, mashed potatoes and bartender recommended red cabbage. My husband had Weiner schnitzel with German potato salad and red cabbage. All the food was excellent. There's two size options I chose the lighter version which has one meat portion. The beer selection is good. The dark Weiss beer on tap was excellent. They do take reservations so we plan to return with friends in the near future.
