local bar with german roots.

The Hofbrau is a local bar and restaurant that is deeply established in peoria . Excellent German food and a great selection of import beers from around the world. Nothing fancy but a friendly staff with decent food. Nice place for lunch.

I have ate here twice and am surprised that I really liked this place. The weiner schnitzel was juicy, tender, and tasty. The spaetzle had a nice texture. Who knew red cabbage tasted so good? This is a good place for friends as it's a fun yet safe alternative. I recommend and would go back.

Dark, old bar with maybe 60 seats at tables and at the bar. Had great weiner schnitzel dinner. Two large pieces and two sides. My wife had roast duck. Food was excellent. Service, prompt and attentive. Prices reasonable. Had 64 beers to choose form on tap and in bottles.Make sure you have reservations since they were turning people away on... More

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
