I went to Harry's Hofbrau for lunch. Since its December, they had lots of Santa Claus, snow men, and Christmas holidays decorations up. Harry's Hofbrau is one of the best places to go to see these during the Christmas holidays. I enjoyed an open faced turkey sandwich with dressing and cranberry sauce. It was very good. I had a diet... More

I took my family there for dinner. The food was very good--comfort American food. The servers were friendly and generous. Unfortunately the noise level kept rising to the point where it was hurt our ears and we were unable to converse. If noise doesn't bother you I highly recommend this restaurant as the food is good and plentiful and the... More

Stayed across the street at the bedbug infested comfort inn. Walked across the street to Harry's Hofbrau for dinner and had the recommended pastrami sandwich. Pastrami was not very tasty on a very hard French roll. No mustard no pickles they don't give you anything with it. I also had a side Caesar salad it was Wilty, The croutons were... More

Harry's has been a Peninsula restaurant institution for quite some time, and for good reason. It is a cafeteria style eatery so be prepared to stand in a line and grab a tray, just like school days -- but the food is much, much better. The prices are moderate, the portions are large, and the quality very good. They do... More

A popular place with great selection of food and drink. Choose from lots of meat items and a ton of sides.

Family friendly 'old-school' restaurant with a wide variety of salads and sandwiches and entrees. Food is consistently good but beware - portions are large! The menu is 'meat-heavy' but there are healthier options. All meats are carved to order and there are a wide variety of sides so you can choose just sides if you prefer not to eat meat.... More

I'm a RWC local and my family eats at Harry's Hofbrau probably twice a month. You can't go wrong with an open face turkey sandwich or turkey dinner with mashed potatoes. Check out their website for daily specials like pot roast and noodles on Sundays. You may or may not encounter a line when you get there, but the food... More

This was an experience. Plenty of stuff to look at (decor, etc). I had the sausage and sauerkraut and my husband had the roast beef sandwich. Both were delicious. We were lucky enough to be there on a Tuesday night and enjoyed the banjo band playing. Recommend!

My favorites here are always the hoy roast beef and hot turkey sandwiches on sour dough rolls. The chef cuts the meat right off the bone while you wait. Never disappointing!
