Our group held a happy hour here on 9/28/16 and had a wonderful time. Even though we had 12 people and showed up without a reservation, the staff were perfectly welcoming and accommodating. They have a nice beer selection with several draughts made on site, and their German-style menu will please most people. (And I would add that the menu... More

I was not impressed with the food and I LOVE German food. I got the schnitzel and it was fine, the sides - however - were not good. The potatoes were not done and a little crunchy even. My dining partners got the saurbraten and it was WAY overcooked, tough and tasteless. Their sides of spaetzle were not good either.... More

Just stopped here for a quick appetizer and beer. The soft pretzels and beer cheese is really good. I had the Oktoberfest beer that they brew themselves, it was the most amazing beer ever!! Great atmosphere and love the fact you can sit outside.

German restaurant (I'm not a big fan), but others said the food was good. The big attraction for me was the May pole in the parking lot! Yes, that sounds ridiculous, but if you're reading my review, you know how I am. My daughter and I had my husband take our picture as this would be the closest either of... More

This reminds us of Germany so much. We sat at one of the big tables. About 30 mins later the patio started filling up. 5 other people joined us. We had so much fun! They were from St. Louis, in town for the baseball game. We just love meeting strangers! The Spaetzle was delicious!!! the Reisling was from Germany, YUMMY!!!!... More

We recently visited for the third time. We love to come for the fun atmosphere and the German music, but the food is excellent as well. I have had something different each time I've been there, and I've always been happy with my choices. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu! I don't drink beer,... More

We LOVE the Hofbrauhaus and visit every year or two when we’re in Cincinnati. They have a GREAT atmosphere complete with bier garden, bier hall, and live Polka music (The BIG German draft beers adds to the fun). But they aren’t just about beer, the food is great too! I usually get the simple wurst platter and my wife loves... More

I went with my family for dinner. My brother had a bug in one drink, then he had plastic wrap in his side dish. The server made an awkward joke about it. The manager came over and offered a standard free dessert to "turn it around." He did comp a meal also so that was good. I would not choose... More
