“Fun place and good food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh is the place to go for a leisurely good time while connecting with friends! It not only has good food and service but the atmosphere, be it inside or outside, adds to the overall pleasure of making either a business meal or social meal an event vs. a routine get together. Everyone I have ever taken there is impressed and looks forward to enjoying another meet up.

“Munich in Pittsburgh”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Family roots is German. Never been to Munich to visit the mother Hofbrauhaus but this one was great. Good German style beer all made on location. Pretty good food, tried to sample a little of everything, we did and liked it all. This place rocks at night, lunch was good also. Can't wait till October!!!!

“Great location, great food, and kid friendly!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Went with our family of 5 to the Hofbrauhaus and were seated immediately on the terrace overlooking the river. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive to the kids, as well as the adults. The food was wonderful, if a little pricy, but both kids and adults both enjoyed the food and the view.

“Great time with friends”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

If its a guys night out or a girls night out, this is the place to head out for dinner in Pittsburgh. Start with good German food and beer, and great entertainment ensues. No one in our group was disappointed with any of the food choices. You better really like your beer choice, if you're going to have a 1-litre mug of it.

Make sure you dine in the beer hall. Its crowded and loud and the best time you'll have while standing on your dinner table and singing with your neighbor!
