Glass panels and outdoor heaters keep you cozy while you enjoy a great meal and watch the sail boats enter the harbor.

This is a nice place with a decent menu. The staff was awesome and friendly, and you can eat out on the patio right near the water. It was a lot more casual than I expected though, which was okay for lunch burger.

Great food, although I admit I usually get the same roast beef sandwich and clam chowder each time. Good selection on menu but it's a la carte for the most part. If you order the sandwich, that's all you get (except for a pickle). Cold beer on tap. German warm potato salad, sauerkraut, fish-n-chips, hamburgers and French fries too, in... More

Basic no frills food. Ample portions. The roast beef sandwich is hand carved in front of you and placed on a yummy french roll. Normal appetites will be satisfied with a "mini" sandwich which is about 2 inches shorter than the regular. The hot corned beef sandwich was also delicious. The have sinus clearing horse radish and spicy brown mustard.... More

Ordered the Fish and Chips, substituted the chips for a cup of chicken gumbo. Both the fish and soup were really good. I've tried several places along the Embarcadero and found the fish at Hofbrau to be the biggest filets, thick, white, flaky and very tasty! Staff was super friendly, prices were in line with most in the area.

We ate here twice. You order at a counter, cafeteria style, but they will bring your entree out to your table after you seat yourself. The BBQ pulled pork sandwiches were loaded with meat. We could have split one. They are best eaten with knife and fork as they are too big to pick up. The BBQ sauce wasn't my... More

The Hofbrau has been an institution in Morro Bay for decades. It changed locations and owners awhile back and I think it's better than it used to be. They have a huge roast beef they carve off for a variety of sandwiches, and a nice variety of other choices.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The corned beef sandwich was piled high, literally, with delectable corned beef. Very good! If you eat outside, watch out for the seagulls that are very aggressive. One in particular will literally land on your table and take food off your plate. A lady next to us set her food container down and walked away... More

Large side of beef that is carved right in front of you. The regular sized sandwich is good to share as it's packed with meat. Bread is delicious also. An order of french fries can also be shared.

If you want a quick and good lunch, this is the place. They have giant slab of roast beef and slice it off right in front of you. They have a great selection of sandwich's and fast service and reasonable prices for the area.
