Our food and service was very good, hubby loved the beer selection. We have lived in the Peoria area for years, and have never been before. We will be back!

It can't have changed much over the years, which is very good. Classic German pork chops, brats, quests and schnitzels prepared just right. Lots of tasty sides true to the cuisine as well. The beer list is extensive with lots of the heartier brews. The decor is very Gorman as well with lots of memorabilia. Solid service but it gets... More

I regret I've never posted a review for this place; I've never had a bad meal here. Additionally the staff are all great folks and always add to the experience. And for the fellow that gave them a poor mark for being closed for vacation... Here's a tip, next time phone first ;-)

Was in the mood for 'something hearty, & decided on this place after reading a few of the reviews. I was not disappointed! Visited this eatery on a Thursday night & was promptly seated. They had a WIDE selection of brews on tap & decided on a Spaten Oktoberfest, good choice! Also had a bowl of their 'Soup of the... More

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 pros of the restaurant are the selections of beers and german-style food. I really like the beers that they have on tap. Cons are the... More

I stopped by to check the place out for a few beers on the way to a dinner engagement. I kind of wished that I could have stayed here for dinner. 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!
