Taste of Germany

This is a version of the Hofbrauhaus in Germany with long tables and a bandstand with German music and people dancing. The food portions are very large, but very well prepared and authentic. The menu has numerous items with a lot of variety. It is in a very active place in Newport, so be prepared... read more

I really enjoy the beer and the atmosphere, the food, not so much. This is a place where you can get boozy without too much judgment and dance around the room as instructed - it is always a good time. The biergarten is perfect in the summer and the employee uniforms make me happy.

Live entertainment with lots of people. Restaurant is large enough to handle a crowd and the wait staff is efficient.

My wife and I hung out here New Year's Eve after the concert at a nearby venue turned out not to be our thing. The Hofbrauhaus was an absolute blast! The polka band was a hoot and had most of the place dancing on their chairs and everywhere else. Thanks for a great time!

A nice stop-1st of the Hofbrauhaus in USA. My family thought it better than I though it was good - I honestly like the Chicago one better. Entertainment was good - I know its tradition, but I like the 1 liter to be 1 Liter, not 3/4 beer and 1/4 foam. Appetizers very good - get the sample flight for... More

We went to Cincinnati for the weekend and stopped off in Newport to have a bite to eat and something to drink. The building was very nice and open air concept. The food was very authentic and the bier was great. we will be back the next time in the area.

They have a really large beer garden outside that we ate at. Inside is a stage where they perform classic German beer hall music. We ate outside in order to be able to talk more easily ...as we were not there for the show. For us this was a good choice. By all means check out the show if you... More
