Typical hoffbrau with better than typical food. Quality with cleanliness and a decent beer selection. I had the reuben which was proper. It's hard to find a good reuben any more and this one was very good. My wife had the roast beef, mashed potatoes, etc. All very good and more than she could eat. Father-in-law had the pastrami sandwich.... More

This is a small chain we happened upon by accident it was Sunday and this proved to be a great choice for unpretentious Sunday dinner. The restaurant was a little plain , dated, but clean. food is served cafeteria style with price depending on entree selection. we had roast beef which was hand carved perfectly cooked and was delicious. we...

And Harry's is one of them. Had the roast beef sandwich dipped. Meat was very tender and rare like I like it. My side was potato salad and there's is real good. I can recommend this place. Especially a great place to eat late night.

We had our Thanksgiving dinner at Harry's Hofbrau and it was one of my best Thanksgiving meal. The food is excellent and the price is very reasonable. They serve Turkey year round. So, it can be Thanksgiving everyday. What a treat ! The ambient of the restaurant is average. But, the value of the food far more offset it.

Nothing beats the Roast Beef dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy, a roll and mushrooms or any of their sides. A little horseradish and I'm good to go. When I walk down the serving line I mean to try some of their other offerings but can't take missing my beef. Reasonable price and large portion. Huge seating hall great for... More
