For a restaurant with a German name whose specialty is Italian food, this place is very good! Only down side is that it's not open for lunch.

The food has always been really good, but the decor leaves a lot to be desired. We usually do take out and enjoy the delicious pizza at home.

We have been looking for a good pizzeria since moving here from the NYC area last year. A friend recommended we try World Famous Hofbrau. What a treat! We were in Bellefonte for business and stopped in for dinner this evening. The ambiance is just great... old-timey-dive-joint kind of place, friendly staff and well-worn booths and tables... WE LOVED IT! As we sat in a front booth the door was continually opening to groups of families and friends. Just the kind of place we like. The hot Italian sub "meltaway" was delicious with great flavors, cripsy and a real treat. The pizza was very good, the cheese had a good tang (unlike the cheese on the pizza earlier in the week that tasted like ... nothing... a waxy nothing) and the sauce was very good, just the right spice and a nice tomato flavor. We WILL be going back and recommending Hofbrau! The waitress was just wonderful, so pleasant and helpful. I asked what was on tap and she recited the list. Afterwards, I noticed a blackboard hanging over my husband's head with a list of all beers on tap. Duh! She could have just pointed over his head and said, "there you go." But she didn't and that really meant a lot... she could have been like most other wait staff we've encountered since moving here... snarky, irritable, distracted, rude... but she was respectful and pleasant. If you're looking for a great place for good food and a nice friendly atmosphere, try Hofbrau!

What more can I say. Pizza, Wings, Sandwiches, are all JUST THE BEST. Love the Dad's Chicken sandwich the best with the Julie peppers. Nice atmosphere, Old leather high back booths, great for conversations over a cold beer and the best food in the area.

I love this restaurant. I'm absolutely addicted to their wings, especially those made with "Tim's Secret Sauce". Great grilled chicken salad, delicious pizza with all sorts of unique toppings......everything is delicious. The staff if very friendly and I like the idea of supporting a locally owned and operated business, especially when their food is this good!
