Yummy Hot Roast Beef and Hot Pastrami Sandwiches

We ate here twice! The fish and chips were good also. Reasonably priced, friendly service, oceanview. I've had better clam chowder.

A last minute decision and expected the traditional HB type menu since I couldn't get to an online menu quickly. Was disappointed in the food fair expected and limited beer selections. So if you're a traveler and frequent HB, be prepared for a different feel. However the French Dip sandwiches are very good and steak cut calamari are excellent. Staff... More

From a referral by my brother-in-law, we went out on a lunch adventure. We got there right at opening at 11am. We had the roast beast sandwich. It was a beast and almost couldn't eat it all. Freshly carved and stacked high, add a little horseradish and BANG. Excellent!

If you are looking for delicious, big food Hofbrau is your place. On the water for great views. The Roast Beef they carve fresh as you go through the line. Reasonably priced, friendly staff. Everything a beer drinking foodie group like us like.

My husband and I live nearby in Cambria and the Hofbrau is one of our favorite places, especially when we have guests. There are always seals, otters, and pelicans to watch and the food is very good, reliably so. Their speciality is the carved roast beef sandwich and my nephew said it was the best he every had at a... More

Then we went back and had French Dip sandwiches for dinner. The roast beef is sliced directly off of a beautiful roast and... More

The Hand-carved roast beef on a yummy roll was delicious! I came for fish & chips but after seeing so many orders for the roast beef, I couldn't resist. Great location, reasonable prices.
