“Good beer, good times!”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Altho this place is always packed, when its warm out sitting outside is the way to go. Great beer, fun food and good service all right by the river.

“Good times. Good Beer”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Awesome Beer. Good german food. Had the 3 sausage sampler, the dunkel beer. Wife Had the schnitzel sandwich and Bavarian Light. Others had the bavarian pretzels with bier cheese. They have these crazy shot contraptions on wooden snow ski's. This place is great. If you want to get drunk and merry.. this is the place to go.

“So much fun!!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Not only is the food good, but it is so much fun to jump up on a bench & sign your heart out with everybody. And did I mention the beer?? I hate beer, but I love their Dunkle!

“Zige Zake Zige Zake Zige Zake...”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

If you want a quiet meal, this is not the place for you! Although you could eat in the dining hall if you want some peace, but then you would be missing out on one of the best parts of dining at the Hofbrauhaus! You'll be seated in traditional German style at picnic tables, often with other parties and after 6pm, the party begins! The food, the beer, the atmosphere, and did I mention the beer...all EXCELLENT! Stick around for the band that starts at 9pm and take a cab home. Its worth the hangover the next day. They don't take reservations, so if you don't arrive before 4:30pm, expect a 30min-2hr wait for a table and they won't seat you until your entire party is present, which is fair. When the weather's nice, take advantage of the outdoor Biergarten before joining the party indoors.
