I have traveled Germany and enjoy good German food. Hofbrau is close. Good beer selection and food quantity and quality is very good.

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

Just actually got done with our meal. First I must say, our waitress was great! Great service! I got the jaeger schnitzel and my husband got a wurst combo plate, which included knack wurst, brat wurst and a smoked pork chop. His platter was excellent! It was served with sauerkraut, gravy and mashed potatoes. If I came again, I would... More

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 ;-)
