Food galore! We split fish & chips and the shrimp entree. Omg so much food.. It was excellent! They gave us 6 pieces of fish .. Way too much. My favorite was the huge shrimp so good. Lots of craft beers on tap and all at the perfect temperature .. Friendly wait staff

Sunday brunch- amazing. Desserts- wow. Onion rings- whoa. BUT the pizza has changed. It used to be better but now it's a thinner crust and some ingredients have been changed (unfortunately). Too bad. That said, overall I recommend this restaurant.

Our server was a super gal, service was slower than molasses, food was plentiful but mediocre, and yes, we would return because it's about the only game in town. I do need to mention that we were stunned at the enormity of the sandwiches on the children's menu - as in SO HUGE they could not eat them without dismantling... More

Came for an early dinner. A little disappointed since the menu did not match Trip-advisor's. Onion rings were huge and rich but pretty greasy. Ordered a supreme pizza. It was loaded with toppings, great sauce and chewy crust, very impressed! Ordered a flight which was difficult since they have over 50 brews on tap. Great visit!

We've been to this place several times over the past 5 years during trips to Traverse City area. The food is good, we love their whitefish and perch. The beer selection is mind-boggling as well. Definitely a place to come for a good meal with the family or without.

nachos were layered with so many toppings AND generous on the cheese portion. Very good value. Ordered BBQ sauce wingdings. Not good as they were soggy! and the sauce was too sweet for my taste. Had a fun Toy drink (cocktails that come with little animal toys) Really fun place to go with lots of people.

If you are in Interlochen, Hofbrau is the place to go! Menu includes everything from Prime Grade Steaks to burgers and Nachos! Fresh Fish and the Fajitas ROCK! 52 draft beers to choose from with 40+ being local Michigan Brewerys. It's a must do if in the area!

Read good reviews during our stay in Interlochen and decided to give Hofbrau a try. Enjoyed sitting out on the patio under a shade tree. Lots of beer selection on tap which was a bonus. Our sever was was quick to get our drinks and take our food order. But she never checked back until it was time for the... More

A wide selection of basic, pub style food. The food is not bad, but also nothing to write home about. Portions are large. Service is often excruciatingly slow. We were charged $9 for three glasses of soda water. Asked waitress about the charge, she asked manager to take it off, s/he refused. This after we spent $90 on dinner and... More

Not many restaurants in the greater Traverse City, MI area still offer a Sunday buffet brunch. The Hofbrau in Interlochen is a welcome exception. The menu features a variety of breakfast and dinner selections. Included are eggs and waffles, breakfast meats, pastries, fresh fruit and an omelet station. The dinner selections included carved prime rib, chicken, potatoes, and macaroni and... More
