The menu doesn't offer much selection, the beef was extremely rare and the choices to go with the meal are not very many. Green salad is mostly basic and the restaurant itself didn't seem very clean. I left most of my food on my plate and I won't be returning to this restaurant. I wouldn't refer anyone to eat here.

Don't be misled by all the talk of fresh carved roast beef. They also have one of the better fish and chips we had on the waterfront.

Simple place with view over the harbour. Too cold to sit out - no-one told us about the fog in Morro Bay! Order at counter and quick service. My fish batter was crispy and delicious. Fish was fresh and flakey. Good fries and side salad. Partner had Reuben sandwich that he enjoyed too.

Carved roast beef is amazing, very generous portions. Sit on the deck if there is space. Simply köstlich!

Cool little place to eat at the docks in Morro. Lunch for 8 cost me $100, which I thought was very reasonable! Seafood was great, as well as their signature roast beef sandwich! Wtached the sea lions cruise around the harbor! And it is also a great view of Whale Rock at Morro.

Can't beat the beautiful view of the sea with seals in the distance and right near Morro Rock. Delicious roast beef sandwich and you have to try the German Potato Salad!

Having spent a week in Morro Bay we were on our last day and looking for an inexpensive meal. We stumbled upon the Hofbrau and I was thrilled. It was SO good. Still $9-12 for a roast beef sandwich, so not exactly super cheap but it was worth every penny. Tasty clam chowder too. Clean and well run, ocean view... More

I've been going to The Hofbrau for over 30 years. I've introduced it to my family and it continues to be our favorite resteraunt in Morro Bay. The roast beef sandwiches are our favorite. They slice the meat right off the roast. The clam chowder and fish and chips come in a close second. Located right on the bay, you... More

We had our puppy with us so sat on the patio and enjoyed listening to the seals and otters right underneath us. My husband had the fish and chips said the were good. I had the prime rib sandwich, really terrific! Not fat, lots of beef, very tasty.

Perhaps we over-did it a bit as the Bratwurst & Sauerkrat side was a bit much when we were splitting the 4-piece Fish & Chips. All was tasty and reasonably priced. By the way, the beef dip sandwiches looked great as the owner was hand slicing the side of roast beef as we waited in line. The next time I... More
