Had a great time at this location near the airport and even danced to some very interesting polka music. The oversized beers helped. Schnitzel was excellent, staff was fun and engaging. The family style table setting made for interesting conversations with other visitors.

Dinner at the Hofbrauhaus was a blast. There was a German band playing beer hall tunes and everyone was singing. The potato pancakes were crisp and tasty. The sauerbraten and accompanying cabbage were really excellent and there was plenty of it on the plate. It...More

This German beer hall is modeled after one in Munich I visited almost 20 years ago. It was like stepping back in time to enter it. Although some of the best features were missing (it wasn't crowded with merry beer drinkers and I was 20...More

Having lived in Germany (and also visited the Hofbrauhaus location in Munich), I was excited that one was brought to the States, particularly Chicago. The decor and musical entertainment is fun (and a little kitschy) – you're sure to feel in good spirits after dining...More

The Hofbrauhaus in Rosemont is a recreation of the Munich Hofbrauhaus, which is a great thing. The only real problems here are the price and parking situation. If you want to park at the actual building you have to pay for valet. You can park...More

Hofbrauhaus Chicago is the first and only German micro brewery, beer hall, restaurant and beer garden to call Chicago home. Modeled after the legendary Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany, it takes pride giving you an experience as authentic and unforgettable as the 400-year-old original. Guests can savor schnitzels, sausages, Sauerbraten and pretzels, and some ingredients are even imported from abroad. The freshly brewed beer follows the purity law from 1516 using original recipes handed down by the Duke of Bavaria over 400 years ago. With its beer hall (Schwemme), King Ludwig Room, and Biergarten in summer, it's Oktoberfest every day. Hofbrauhaus Chicago also features live music nightly with bands from Germany and Austria. In addition, you can take a piece of Bavaria home from the gift shop stocked with authentic and unique Bavarian gifts & collectibles.
