We were on a long trip and wanted a nice sit down meal. Hofbrau had great fish and chips, clam chowder, imported beer and a nice location on the bay. Great place to eat.

Don't eat here. My roast beef was cold, fatty & dry. The roll wasn't anything that great. The au jus juice was too salty. The sweet potato fries were way over priced at $4.35. The portion for the price was inadequate. I did complain & the girl was very nice. She give me another order of fries at no cost.... More

We had the fish and chips and fried clams. It was not greasy and it tasted like they used good oil. We had a bucket sized pitcher of Hofbrau Hefe to go with it but before that affected our judgement we decided the fish was good. This is a very casual fried fish place but nice and very well run...

Good place to eat lunch or diner. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Order and pay at the counter, recommend the Rubin sandwich on marble rye you won't go wrong.

We just happened to stop at Hafbrau for lunch last week and were very happy that we did. The view of Morro Rock was outstanding! The Roast Beef sandwiches were excellent and the Clam Chowder was very good. The portions were large and the staff were friendly and sincerely thanked us for our visit. We'll return!!

This place has some average things on the menu, but the real magic can be found on the specials board if you are lucky. We saw a foreign sounding name we weren't familiar with and asked about it. It was an indonesian type dish with shards of beef mixed into a noodle dish packed with a nice punch. The staff... More

My family ate here while we were in town for the week and the food was great. The service was excellent and helpful in trying to figure out what the kids will like to eat. I really enjoyed the roast beef sandwich. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the bay. Very homey feel.

I had the hand carved roast beef sandwich, the beef was fine and a generous serving but that was it. The bread was soft and a bit soggy, the au jus nothing special and there was nothing else. Perhaps mustard was available but our outdoor table only had ketchup. The view out onto Morro Bay is excellent and the sounds... More
