Where's the Beef? Here.

A varied menu with a general German theme. Beef is sliced to order at the front counter. We had lunch - fish and chips, light and not greasy, and their "small" beef dip sandwich - also excellent. The person ahead of us had an unusual 'bread-less' off-menu request and they created a fair price... read more

We came here for dinner with our family and was a little disappointed in the limited menu. The lady told me they are known for their roast beef sandwiches and fish and chips. We all ordered the fish and chips and I wasn't very impressed with the quality. I was expecting more for the amount of money they charge. The... More

Great location. Husband loved his burger. Limited menu so I had a hard time finding something I wanted. Had a side salad and tea. Would go here for the view.

Seems to be a locals spot in Morro Bay, I've been a couple times when I'm in town visiting family. Super low key but great fish and chips, clam chowder and I tasted the roast beef sandwich which was great. Easy place to take kids, and sitting on the patio with gorgeous views of the rock on a nice day... More

Great Hofbrau with harbor views. The roast beef was super tender and the calm chowder was very good. I understand the Sauerkraut was good ( my company) but I didn't personally eat that. Overall a good price for the good food.

Food was not very good. The chowder was thickened using a lot of flour and lacked clams, potatoes or flavor. We ordered fish and chips and the fish was also tasteless and extremely greasy. I can't recommend this restaurant to anyone. It is a typical tourist trap.

We went on the advice of two different couples who live locally. It was not all they made it out to be but it was still worth going. We got there about 8:30 they closed at 9 PM on Saturday? I expected they would be open later. We didn't have beer but they sure looked good on draft. We had... More

The prices are a little high, but you are paying for the view. The food is great too. I like a good fresh pressed sandwich, and salad, with a cold beer on tap. It sits right on the ocean, outside seating. Its great for the family, the kids get a good view, and its bench style seating inside.
