Authentic German food

Went for lunch, all you can eat soup and a soda for under 10 dollars. Usually have a choice of two soups and chili. Have tried about everything on the menu and was never disappointed. Be careful of the hot mustard!

Best German food in Peoria! Intimate setting, but the menu and bar options are well worth the close quarters. Hofbrau is a must-go if you are in the Peoria area

Just walking into the restaurant feels like you are entering Germany. Traditional German music was playing and the decor was decidedly German. The menu items were listed with their German names, and the waitress was exceptionally well versed in what everything was and how it tasted. Plenty of German beers to choose from, and the portion size was a little... More

Last night before leaving Peoria I really wanted to get a meal at Hofbrau. I am glad I went there tonight. I was a little worried that it would be super busy because it's Friday. I ordered the Jaeger Schnitzel with red cabbage and spaetzle and a nice cheese cake with strawberries on top. Nice German draft beer selection, bottles... More

They had some really great German beers both on tap and in the bottle. I got the special Schnitzel with spatzle and red cabbage. Tasted great. I also had the Wisconsin cheese beer appetizer which was excellent. Prices very reasonable and their lunch menu look good. Decor is a little dated but I loved it. Lots of locals having a... More

Was looking forward to a good corned beef sandwich that day, and i got more bread than i got corned beef. The HOT mustard was probably the best thing. Place was crowded, lunch time, so i expeted it. But, i got the corned beef plate and a Coke, the plate adds sauerkraut and German potato salad, small servings of both,... More
