Great casual dining in interlochen.

We had a group of 20. This place has the room for either small or large groups and a menu offering that features seafood to steak to pizza. The atmosphere is really vacation casual, the best feature is the bear garden with its beautiful flowers in bloom and the 52 bears on tap that the server do... read more

We have been here a couple of times now, and I would rate it as good ... not great. Not many options in Interlochen so we'll be back. Waits for a larger group can be long in peak season. As is often the case, the server can make a big difference. First visit, good server ... second visit, not as... More

Hadn't been here for a while. We have eaten here before going Interlochen for a concert. It used to be better. A little classier. Now it seems to be more of a bar. They are brewing beer and featuring different microbrews. Lots of deep fried stuff. It was ok. They were very busy. We'll probably wait for some time before... More

I was reluctant to eat at this restaurant because I thought it would just be your typical "bar" food, but we were pleasantly surprised. We asked for a window seat as it seems dark in there and I am glad we went before the rowdy drinking crowd took over. We really enjoyed the guacamole and seasoned chips. I ordered the... More

Thought we were in for a great German meal when we stopped in here the other night. What a disappointment! Giant servings of food we didn't want to eat. The perch was fried in oil we were sure had been used to death. Same for the onion rings that tasted of oily breading, not onion. A stuffed chicken breast was... More

Slow but passable too large portions on sandwiches left it unappealing. Ate only half sandwich and that had way too much stacked meat.

We visited here twice over the past 2 weeks. We were visiting our daughter at Interlochen and needed a good quick meal before her concert. I read a previous review so we decided to come to Hofbrau. The food was really really good and our server Greg was honestly top notch! We sat in the bar area and hubby ordered... More
