After reading many poor reviews of the Student Prince that recently reopened we decided to try the " other" German restaurant in town. Just over the bridge in West springfield is the Hofbräuhaus. The restaurant was great many years ago and went through ownership changes, hopfully there back. The place is slightly dated but still has a great German feel... More

We came here for New Year's Eve dinner with my sister and her friend. The restaurant was not that full for a special night. We were seated immediately after arriving for our 7:30 reservations. Our waiter was nice enough, but I got the feeling that he really didn't want to be there. He certainly didn't seem excited about the food... More

Stopped for lunch while in the area. We will come back for sure. The place is very clean (albeit a bit worn here and there). Decorated nicely for Christmas with a fire going in the bar area. We were given the choice of bar or restaurant and chose a nice booth in the bar. Burger cooked perfect. Cubans on a... More

When Joe Stevens first took over the Hafbrauhaus, he kept the lovely atmosphere, and added some new cuisine that was a reflection of his past at "The Glass Lily" in Longmeadow. He also added new venison and game dishes, and kept quite a few of the old menu specialties. Delightful then, though expensive. He managed to keep this up for... More

On a recent dinner out with my wife I rediscovered the delightful delicacies of the Hofbrauhaus. I had not been there in probably a decade as I rarely dine on this side of the river. It was the first time for my wife. She ordered a regular menu item, I had a veal dish that was a daily special. The... More

It's awkward. Don't expect an entirely objective review. When you revisit a restaurant that has meant a lot to you in the past, and it is under new management, well it is liking visit an old friend who has a new spouse-and you liked the old spouse. New management is a tad inaccurate too. Joe Stevens has been running the... More

Upon arriving in West Springfield, Beloved and I decided to try a German restaurant during our visit and found ourselves at the Hofbrauhaus. This is a beautiful restaurant that has been open since 1935 offering fine traditional German cuisine. Did I say this is a beautiful setting? It really is, and although I felt a little casual for the dining... More

We are returning customers, coming when we are in town. Really enjoy the make at table Caesar salad and the weinkraut. I am just not at all a fan of "kraut" but theirs is really great. As my hubby says, just like being in Germany. He tried two different dark tap beers and I had a Malbec to go with... More

We shared the Venison sausage (made in-house) with sauerkraut and the Knackwurst with diced potatoes, as well as the Hofbrau berries and rhubarb pie, Strudel, and German chocolate cake. Everything was super delicious, appetizingly presented, and clearly explained to us by our awesome waitress, Kris (we loved the dessert presentation, Kris!). To top it off, they were very accommodating with... More

Sometimes you can sit at the bar area with booths are you can eat in their dining room. I usually get the Veal Schnitzel with the red cabbage & whatever else it comes with those are my favorites. Waitress/waiters are pretty good to you too. I prefer the lunch over the dinner but have had both. Excellent.
