I have been to the Hofbrau several times and it always serves good food. I enjoy the Hofbrau because the restaurant has a good atmosphere and it is a good place to go eat.

The Hofbrau is easy to locate and right outside of town. Being a visitor, I had no problems finding it. The beer selection is very ethnic and was very... More

This restaurant is a must visit if you are a fan of German food and beer. I like the. Tucker beer. It's very mild! A lot of atmosphere in this tiny German restaurant. You can get your name on the wall when you have tried 100 beers I think!

We love the Hofbrau in Peoria. My husband is a beer lover, so it's right up his alley - one of the best beer menus in Peoria. If not the best. Awesome food and friendly service -- couldn't ask for much more than that!

Excellent authentic German cuisine. Weiner schnitzel and Jaeger schnitzel both extremely well prepared with spatzel and red cabbage. Great German beer on draft.

There is not one thing on the menu I would not order. Their wait staff is excellent. If you like a great assortment of german beers this the place to go.

Decent selection for lunch or supper and decent quality. Dangerous location keeps me away at night and only go there occasionally in daytime. Located in the hood.
