I have been in the bar and restaurant business for 13 years. My other half used to own Larry's Place -Bayview Inn in Traverse City for 14 years. Folks tell me that it was the absolute best place to go "back in the day" Now we have found the Hofbrau to be the best place in all of Traverse City... More

A fun and lively place that we enjoy. The food is good with large portions . The staff are friendly and they respond to special requests . We like to go there whenever in the area.

We have a cottage in Interlochen, and have gone to the Hofbrau over many years. I agree with those who note that it has slipped downhill over the years. While they have recently focused on becoming more of a tap-house (and do have a great selection of beers on tap), the food quality is still not up to par. If... More

Hofbrau is a restaurant that we usually visit once during any trip to the area. While we haven't been to Interlochen in a number of years, This year we stopped for Sunday brunch. We definately were not disappinted. We arrived early, before doors were open and there was already a line outside. They actually let us all in a few... More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but within the last year it seems to be going downhill...especially the service. Yesterday our server forgot things we substituted and never brought them after being reminded. Our bread basket never came, salads came before soups...then they ran out of the soup we ordered. We had to ask for drink refills... More

For years, we have dined at the Hof Brau because their menu was extensive and the food was excellent. Other than real wood-paneled walls, no one went to the Hof for it ambiance. This once destination restaurant has now morphed into a noisy bar with a limited menu. On our last visit (and I emphasize "last"), I ordered fish which... More

We always hit the Hofbrau when we are "up north". The food is always good even though it is basic. I only wish they offered a few more vegetarian items...even a veggie burger would be nice for those who have eating challenges.

Though the atmosphere is neat and the location to Interlochen Center for the Arts very handy, we were overall disappointed in our dining experience, both in food quality and service. My sister and I bother ordered the fettucini alfredo. She got the shrimp FA (which came without shrimp, but they rectified that quickly) and I got the Northwoods. Both our... More

Nice Atmosphere, good beer selection, varied menu, and price not too bad-especially for a resort area. I tried the prime rib special. Very tender, tasty and no waste. Just up the road from the Interlachen Center for the Arts-a must see.
