Great German Food

This bar restaurant has some great beers, and traditional German food. Service was good, and the food was excellent. If having a beer, I recommend you take one on draft.

Have only been here once but I certainly remember our visit! Stopped here with the family and this is got to be the best German in the area! Great food, reasonably priced, and excellent service!

The food was good, not great. The server was very friendly and helpful, but not attentive. The hostess was a bit confrontational. As for the atmosphere, cramped and dark. Finally, I did not see a ramp for those who have disabilities.

I had a sausage platter with a variety of different types of meats and a couple of kinds of mustard and it was all very tasty. Combine this with your favorite beverage and you've got a winner!

This is a gem in Peoria. Our favorites include the combination platter (bratwurst and Thuringer sausages), the ham shank (to die for) and the Schnitzel. While the spatzel, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut are amazing, the nachos are the best in Peoria. Once you try them, you will crave them! The beer selection is very impressive!

I've been visiting Peoria Hofbrau for 5+years on business. The world beer tour is a hoot. The servers are great. 15 beer taps, new bottles fresh always. A secret beer geek place AND has a full bar. Prost!beer

Hofbrau is a very popular casual restaurant specializing in German food and beer.....as the name reflects. My friends and I are often there for lunch. The quality is good as is the price.

They do a pretty good job with traditional German food. They appear to have a lot of beer choices as well. It's very cramped inside, and can get loud. Prices are pretty good.

This looked like a popular place when we drove by at lunch time. We weren't terribly impressed with the sandwiches we had--seemed like they were stingy with the corned beef. The unending soup option seemed to be a very popular item. Sometimes it would be wise to watch and see what the locals are ordering/eating. Certainly off the main traffic... More
