Food is good, and of course the beer is excellent. It is a fun, casual place to go anytime with family or friends. It is a good value

Ok, it obviously starts with the beer here. Fresh brewed HB on tap? Can't be beat for lovers of lager style beer. The food was pretty good if you like Central European comfort food (schnitzel, spaetzel, brats, etc.), but this isn't a 5 star restaurant. I was a bit annoyed that the the non-smoking section was in a secondary room... More

The food is decent (well, stay away from the Sauerbraten), but the part you just can't fix is the poor management. The manager is a grumpy man who doesn't care very much about his customers. He basically ruined our experience there. We had an expired Groupon and if you know about Groupon, you know that when they expire, they revert... More

Beer garden was nice, service ok and food was ok. Fun just to go for a drink. (We just had sour kraut appetizer so can't speak for entrees.)

To be fair, we only came in for a snack and had pretzels with bier cheese. They weren't anything special, I've had better, but the thing that makes this place cool is the ambiance. It's definitely a good German place from the decor with the large wood tables and beer steins, to the staff wearing barmaid outfits. There were plenty... More

We went here on a Saturday night....the weather was great and sitting outside drinking beer and having appetizers was fantastic. They told us it would be 90-120 minutes for a table inside...30 minutes after we arrived our table was ready. The beer is very good and the food is OK, not bad but certainly not gourmet. Overall a great place... More

The food is amazing and so is the beer. What a fun place. It wasn't very crowded when we went but what fun it was. I love their motto.

We have travelled to Munich three times, each time visiting the Hofbrauhaus at least once. So when I found out there was one in Covington I could not wait to try it. The atmosphere is great and even close to the original. The location looks like a lot of fun for tourists and things to do and see. The staff... More
