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.

After having lived in the area for over 4 decades, we have witnessed the ups and downs of businesses and restaurants. The Hofbrauhaus has newly renovated and updated everything. Food is great; Liz makes the cakes; a slimmed down Joe knows what people want in this century and the staff works diligently to please the customer...... and the bathrooms and... More

The Hofbrauhaus in West Springfield, MA, has been my favorite restaurant for 25 years, with excellent German food, beers, wines, and desserts. Some American dishes have been added to "keep up with the times", since it seems people really don't recognize or value quality food like this restaurant serves. I love the decor/ambiance, with authentic steins and decorationsand beautiful old... More

I have been to this restaurant several times over the years, but haven't been in two years. We have always loved the food and service. We decided to go, since it has been awhile and the experience was not as good as it used to be. We did still have an ok experience. Our server was very nice, but didn't... More

A large group of us had dinner at the Hofbrauhaus in early December. We had a most wonderful waitress who spoke fluent English and German. Her suggestions were most welcome and she made excellent recommendations. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals, from appetizer to dessert.. All the staff was helpful and patient while we partied. It will be my... More

We have been going to this place for years and always enjoyed the food, until tonight. One hint that there was a problem is the fact that the place was mostly empty on a Saturday night. My scrod was tasteless, while my wife's salmon tasted fishy and old. She sent hers back and got the beer battered shrimp. It was... More
