“Delicious - Delightful - will certainly be BACK!!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Apparently this establishment has been here since the 1950's - had never been there but we had a work-related party here and I was amazed at the selection and excellent food~ Great service, and everything, of course, ready to eat right NOW! Beautifully prepared, hugh variety of dishes, and all are perfectly done. Wonderful atmosphere - there is NOTHING remotely like this in Santa Cruz where I live - and it is WORTH every second to drive over the hill to this welcoming and exciting place to share good conversation and enjoy a delicious meal that will make everyone happy. The choices alone were amazing - the care put into their recipes and REASONABLE prices make it obvious why they have lasted and have such a loyal clientele. NO WONDER the workers all seem to joyful!!

“Good meal for the money”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Served quickly and efficiently, cafeteria style. Large seating area with comfortable serving a wide variety of brews. While the menu is limited to "Hof brau style " meat dishes, there still are salads and a variety of side dished. Fresh roasted turkey and roast beef. Great comfort food and a full turkey dinner always available at a reasonable price. $12.95 when we were there for lunch. Freshly prepared sandwiches are also available

“Stick to your ribs food”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Roast turkey sandwiches are very good. Turkey is very moist, and that includes the white meat. If you want to make turkey soup they will sell you the turkey carcass for $7 - a good deal.

“Hot Turkey and Roast Beef”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Every time I come to San Jose we go to Harry's. When we lived in San Jose we visited at least once a week. The food is always good and priced reasonably. We celebrated my birthday this year at Harry's and were lucky enough to hear the Peninsula Banjo Band.
