We ordered 2 french dips sandwiches and an order of french fries , the sandwiches had plenty of roast beef but it was sliced so thick that it was tough... More

We love seafood but I was really in the mood for something different. The Hofbrau offers great french dip sandwiches that the owner hand carved right in front of me. Generous portions and friendly service.

Great location overlooking the bay and unobstructed views of the rock. We enjoyed delicious sandwiches of freshly carved beef. Good salad assortment also.

The Hofbrau located on the Embarcadero in Morro Bay, CA has the best hot roast beef sandwich on the central coast. Thick slices of roast beef, melted cheese of your choice, and anything you want to go with it . Great place for lunch when you visit Morro Bay.

They really pile the handcarved roast slices onto a big fresh roll that you then dip into a yummy aus jus. Add the cheese of your choice. I also like to add a bit of horseradish to the aus jus for an extra kick. We've never found a better roast beef sandwich - goodness knows we've tried! The outside deck... More

I find the french dip and the fish and chips adequate, the prices were moderate and it's usually cold inside. The french dip was very salty and lacking flavor the fish and chips were a bit too greasy. We have been going to the Hofbrau for about 25 years but have seen a decline in service and quality of food... More

My husband and I have gone to the Hofbrau many times over the years. I almost always get the Beef Dip/French Dip sandwich. My husband has ordered their burgers, fried fish, and a couple other items, and they were all delicious. They are a little more expensive than some of the other restaurants by the time you add fries and... More
