Authentic Munich Hofbräuhaus

This is an authentic Hofbräuhaus from one of the classic Bavarian breweries. The beer is good, and the hall has a very authentic feel right down to the kitschy German polka music. The acoustic is noisy, the tables are traditional community tables, and conversation can be difficult in the main... read more

Great atmosphere. Loved the food. Not crazy about the $5.00 parking but we paid it anyway. Great place to visit when in the Cincinnati area.

A really fun place to go. Excellent sausages and pretty good beer. The night I went, they had a meeting of a local German club and a very good band. Lots of revelry.

We were going for a birthday celebration, and the line was loooonng. However, they are so big, they were able to seat us within 10 minutes! They even had someone come over and play "Happy Birthday" on the accordion! Great service and all around good experience!

I love Hofbräuhaus (Newport) since I first went to one in Cleveland, which too me was bigger and better than this place but it's a bigger city, so I guess it make sense that this one is a mini-version of that. It's a German chain that came to the US just over ten years ago and this was the first... More

If you enjoy authentic German food & beer, this is as good as it gets in America. Outside beer garden or inside with live music.

Fun and a lot of options to choose from! Great for large groups and kid-friendly. There was a live band the night we went.

The food and company was great. Would like to go back again sometime. Felt like we were in Germany, but yet a lot closer to home. Highly recommend:)
