We like Deutsch food and had to stop in while visiting Cinci area. Parker waited on us for lunch and broke down the food items and beer. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had to have a pretzel, of course, then shared the dinner for 2 sampler. Chops were not some were pleasingly thick and very good. We really... More

I've never been to Germany, so I can't vouch for the authenticity of the food, but I found it to be very good and a departure from the normal cuisine American food scene. The beer was also good and it feels authentically European to be able to order by the liter. As someone with Germany heritage, I particularly enjoy the... More

Chelsea G took the time to answer my many questions and helped me make my meal decisions because there was so much to choose. The soft pretzel and cheese is to die for. The kraut balls were interesting. Will definitely go back.

I have been to the Hofbrauhaus many times but each time it seems something is different. We took 3 of our grandkids there and afterwards thought that was not the place to take them. It is not really kid friendly. They had kid menus to color but no crayons. Our waitress tried to make up for the lack of crayons... More

We arrived for dinner and were delighted to not have a wait. It was a nice evening, so we chose to sit outside. Our waitress promptly greeted us and kept us entertained throughout the evening. Our only disappointment came very early. We all wanted a large souvenir beer mug. We were told that the shipment was on order. Consequently, we... More

This is a fun and festive place. They have a beer garden which is scenic and overlooks the river and Cincy waterfront. It's a great place for a crowd. Great beer and lots of sampler food choices which were great for sharing. The staff dresses in German garb and they have festive music playing which adds to the merriment.

This is a poor German Restaurant. They are also very overpriced. My wife was very upset since she was looking forward to this place since she grew up in Germany and loves German food. She got a bratwurst but it was served in a regular hot dog bun that you can get at Walmart. The Pretzels that they rave about... More

This is the second time I've visited the Hofbrauhaus and I enjoyed it just as much as the first. The food is great, the beer is excellent and reasonably priced, and the atmosphere is fun. If you are looking for a quiet place, then this is not for you.

I've been wanting to try this place for years and finally went! They have the huge beers like they do in Germany as well as a sampler. I really like the beer garden! I got the Hofbrauhaus Hot Brown and it was delicious! Newport isn't smoke free, but they have a non smoking room that is very large. I really... More

Four generations of family had a great time at the Hofbrauhaus this last weekend. We were seated quickly (no mean feat for a group of 11) right next to the band. The little kiddos had a great time jumping and marching around to the music, and (mostly) were able to stay out of peoples' way. The atmosphere is like an... More
