Wonderful German food (schnitzel, red cabbage, potato pancakes & Sauerbratten)! And of course German beer!! Lots of Lederhosen and dirndls. Large long tables that allow for a big group or share table with others, just like the bier gardens in Deutschland. I know we'll be back. This was our 3rd visit this year.

The beer is perfect...good selection of German beers. Food was very good. Schnitzel was PERFECT....no so German Potato Salad (too sweet and potatoes were hard. Atmosphere is perfect for good times.

Stopped for early dinner, before a movie, $5 to park at restaurant and left car there. Very large open table eating area, brewed beer on site was good. Food was also good, fairly large sized, maybe a tinge on the higher side. Live music in the evening, good German place worth going to!

I've been to Hofbrauhaus Newport several times. It never disappoints. The food, music, beer, and fun are always in abundance. Outside is an amply sized gravel covered biergarten. On a nice day or night it is a great place to be. Indoors is an amply sized German style beer hall. It looks like the pictures of beer halls in Germany.... More

We stopped in here before, last year when we came for the uss nightmare so we came again last night and decided to stop again. Not sure why you were charging $5 to park this time at your restaurant but that's only complaint I have. The food is great! The drinks, whether your looking for beer or mixed drinks are... More

I ate here several years ago and LOVED it. Couldn't wait to come back. So we came back, and I wasn't as impressed. I got the Schnitzel Wiener Art. The potato salad was great. And even the schnitzel was good, but it was like it was lacking something. I asked if they had a sauce or something. She brought out... More

Business dinner after work. Party of 5. Great German atmosphere. Having spent 2 years in Germany I can appreciate that. The beer was awesome. They were tapping a seasonal keg while we were there. October fest band was there and people were dancing. The schnitzel sandwich I had was good and crispy. All around great time. Will definitely return.
