Great German restaurant

We were greeted very warmly by the manager. Seated right away for lunch. The server wasn't as friendly as the manager. Maybe she was having a bad day. I enjoyed the beer and food very much. Way too much food though! Loved the pretzel bun, beer cheese, and German potato salad. It was a fun... read more

We had about 9 family members get together for fun & dinner & we're not disappointed. Good was good & music very entertaining. The band managed to include many of our group in the frivolity. All had a great time & would definitely go again when in the area!

I mean really? Great food, even better beers, great outside seating, great indoor seating, lively music fitting the theme, nice servers...it's all good! People are having fun here! It's fun to strike up conversations with others at the bar or at a shared table. Best Hefeweizen beer ever is served right here at this Hofbrauhaus! And those pretzels are crazy... More

Our first visit to Hofbrauhaus. We ordered the pretzel appetizer with Bier Cheese and loved it. We ordered Bratwurst, schnitzel, and other items on the menu and we ate everything! German Folk music always playing with live band and good selection of onsite brewed beers. Lots of seating inside and outside to enjoy the weather. Would recommend fall size of... More

My friends and I loved EVERYTHING about Hofbrauhaus. This is a great place to go and hang out for hours on end all the while enjoying the Cincinnati skyline, the Ohio River and authentic German food and atmosphere. We chose to sit outside. Our waitress Lauren was friendly and great at describing any dishes we had questions about. The menu... More

Went with a couple family friends, group of 10 or so for my uncle's birthday. Ate before I went because it was lent, but they have a lenten menu that offers additional meals during this time of the year, so don't let that stop you in the future. I think it's an underrated place to drink beer. I like the... More

From the long tables that seat multiple parties to the oompah band playing this was a wonderful experience for the entire family. My two boys really enjoyed the evening and the food the remember from our family trip to Germany last year.
