Have passed this place a number of times and knew that people said it was very good. So decided to give it a shot. Upon entering the door I knew it must be a mistake. The place is a dive. Dirty wood floors, no decor...dark and non-appealing. Met the waitress and she said "seat yourselves". We decided to go outside on the deck that overlooks the river. Again not at all pretty, the water was dark and muddy. Should have left but sometimes the worse looking places have great foo. Well, that did not hold true for this place. Menu items OK. Ordered the veal schitzel meal and the hangover burger. The meat on both was dry and tasteless. The fries were from a freezer bag (small portion) the red cabbage definately from a can. Prices were crazy. So expensive for what ???? Never again. Bad overall experience.More

The food was good but the service just wasn't any good. I personally think you need both to make it work. Not that the service was horrible but not worth wasting my time for another visit.

Real hole in wall..but that is what gives this place character. Several things out of stock on the menu, but still managed to order some delicious Brats, and wonderful sides. Surprisingly good Wine...but do ask the price, a bit high for the type of restaurant....Service friendly and welcoming..but don't be in a hurry...not fast food service. Rather hot and sticky in the heat of summer, don't expect cool dry A/C. Every thing is basically outside seating.More

We came on a Wednesday nite and were seated immediately at a table with an amazing view. The bar was busy, but the bartender got our drinks promptly, the staff was very accommodating. Our food was absolutely fantastic, we all had a different choice and...everyone thought their meal was the best...love the bar next door atmosphere!More

We love to visit and drink German beer from interesting steins. Looking over the inter coastal waterway is lovely. The menu has authentic items like schnitzel, sauerbraten and goulash. The curry wurst is very yummy. The servers and friendly and the atmosphere is very pleasant....Eating outside is the evening is fabulous but as we know nights can get cool . The music on Friday and Sat. Is fantastic The motto says it all. « Tourists envy it, locals love it. »More

A lot of locals frequent the Hoffman. The food was great and the price were in line with the area (slightly pricey) but overall a good value for a resort/vacation area. I would recommend this for a dinner and just hanging out by the beach...in the evening.More

I wanted to try something new and heard about this place. I got there, parking is limited so I was luck I found a spot along the road. Found a spot at the bar on the water. It does look like a dive bar. The...bartender/server was a great help to see what to order. I decided to get the Bavarian meatballs. I was expecting multiple small meatballs in a sauce. When it came, I was pleased to see it is two huge meatballs covered in a mushroom sauce. Great flavor, reminds me of homemade Salisbury Steak. The spaetzel as a side was very good compliment to the meatballs. After I finished the meal, I stained a while enjoying the cool breeze off the water. I would be going back again to try another dish.More

Nice location on the water. Staff friendly and efficient. I admit I have been spoiled by my grandmother’s authentic German cooking as well as two outstanding German restaurants near my home., which is why 3-stars. The wiener schnitzel was good but a bit heavy. The...red cabbage was excellent. I don’t know what to say about the German potato salad. It tasted pretty good but didn’t resemble what I have known my entire life. The meat portion was huge. It’s not fair to judge on only one meal, but I wouldn’t order this again. In a seafood town I think I’ll stick with oysters, clams, and other seafood.More
