Can't beat German cuisine for winter comfort food!

After attending a show at the Big E fairgrounds recently, my husband and I stopped for dinner at the Hofbrauhaus, which is very nearby. We ate in the more casual bar area, to the left as you enter the front door. It was a cold and blustery Sunday afternoon, and there were only two other patrons... read more

Lots of great German beers, spirits and food. The decor takes me back to quaint restaurants in Germany. They serve complimentary cheese and crackers while you have cocktails and await your appetizer. Their deviled eggs are a house specialty. They also make an authentic table side Caesar salad the right way using fresh ingredients and no premade dressing. The food... More

I judge German food by Sauerkraut and IMHO the chef's here make it too sweet. I have researched recipes and sometimes apple sauce is added, and if that was the sweetener, it was way too sweet for my taste. The rest of the meal was fine, promptly served, hot and well presented. We arrived on a weeknight and only one... More

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
