Description: Hoffbrau Steaks was voted "one of Dallas' Best Chicken Fried Steak" by D Magazine. We are a family owned steak house, rustic and casual with a unique Texas atmosphere. We now proudly serve Premium Black Angus beef and an wide-ranging menu of chicken fried steaks, chicken, ribs, seafood, salads and burgers. We keep it Salt & Pepper Simple and make everything from scratch with love. Daily lunch specials are delicious and affordable. Large TV's are perfect for watching sports in our great bar. Come sample our extensive list of local, national and international beers in our fun bar. We love to cater for weddings, birthdays and office parties. Happy Hour is served from 4pm to 7pm Monday through Friday. Our quaint little town of Granbury is also home to the Granbury Opera House, built in the 1800's. Early to-mid 1800's German settlers, who helped develop the Hill Country of South Texas, also recreated their beloved "hoffbraus"or "beer gardens" where local townspeople, farmers and ranchers gathered to enjoy hearty meals and brewed beverages in a setting that was naturally casual yet humming with conversations and warm friendly service. What began as a "Hoffbrau" in South Texas truly was the origin of the Texas Hill Country Steakhouse... A tradition that our family has continued since opening Hoffbrau Steaks in 1978. Enjoy yourselves, our Texas hospitality... The great steaks and foods for which we are known. Many thanks, The Fogiel Family

“Good Food, but Crowded Place!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were visiting my husband's daughter in Granbury and were looking for a place to take the hubby for a birthday dinner. We originally planned to go to Miyako but it was Saturday night and the wait was over an hour. So we headed to this place. The wait was going to be about 30 minutes, so we decided to eat at the bar. The place was packed, and the seating was close together. It also took us awhile to even be noticed at the bar, and then after we got our drinks it was about 20 minutes until we were able to place our order. Thankfully, our server was friendly even though she was clearly slammed. We started to get really concerned that we were not going to have a good experience, but then the food came super fast after it had been ordered. It was really quite good. We all really enjoyed our meals. The only part that was lackluster was the salad. The perfectly cooked steaks, corn, mac and cheese, and baked potato were great. We finished with banana pudding which was fabulous. By this time it had slowed down enough to discern that our server really was very friendly as she began to check on us more frequently and was really generous. We would definitely return again for the food and friendly staff, but will try to avoid the super busy times of day when people are packed in like sardines and it takes awhile to be served.

“One Of My Newest Favorite Restaurants!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

I have never had much luck with steak house restaurants because it is nearly impossible to get one cooked the way way you want. BUT!!!! Then I tried Hoffbrau and Holy Moley did I get a surprise!!!! Everything was cooked just as ordered by our party. Service was super and even with it being a very busy night for them, we were seated and served within 35 minutes. Now with a waiting line longer than a stretch of Texas Highway...that is GOOD. It was so good that my wife and I went back three days later and enjoyed another great dining experience. I had the quail on the second visit and it was luscious. The peach cobbler for dessert was super yummy too. This place gets five stars from me. I believe you will love Hoffbrau Steaks!

“Good Food and Plenty of It”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

My husband and mother and I enjoyed another nice meal at Hoffbrau last evening. This time we tried hamburgers and chicken sandwich and fried okra and dinner salad. Hamburgers cooked to our preference.. .. Mother especially enjoyed the Hoff chips that came with burgers. And she loves the spicy Ranch dressing. And added bonus was the half priced bottles of wine on Wednesdays. And I really like their Bloody Mary's drinks. Emily was our server...very nice and professional and the right amount of attentiveness . Nice job and we will be back !

“Best steaks in Granbury”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Hoffbrau has the best ribeye steak to be had in Granbury. My wife also likes the spicy shrimp and mac & cheese. If you are not too full, have the peach cobbler. All of these are excellent!

“Absolutely”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

It's not often I would order steak but after reading many reviews I pulled the trigger and I may have found my new steak joint. I'm a medium-well kinda guy and it was perfect without being dry or charred to much. Nice job, I'll be back for sure.
