Based on the original Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany. With authentic food, beer, attire, and oompah bands flown in from Germany and Austria. We offer Schnitzel Weiner Art, Jagerschnitzel, and Potato Pancakes just to name a few! Under normal circumstances we have LIVE music but for now we have German music piped in over a high quality audio system. We will see you soon! Prost!

Everything was great except they had non German cover band playing. We like the American pop music that was playing, but were expecting German music in a German beer hall.

Staff was overwhelmed due to shortages, but did a great job. Food was ok. Kraut was inedible consistency and flavorless. Rest was good

The experience was mostly as expected. Was a little disappointed in the limited menu. How do you not have sauerbraten on a German menu? Otherwise a very pleasant experience.

We went to Hofbräuhaus for a birthday dinner. The food was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was fun, polite and helpful. It was a little loud in there but it was fun. We will definitely be returning

Only German thing about the food are the names. Food is bland and service was slow. Huge waste of money.

2nd time here. They have enough space and a huge room so it is probably equivalent to dining outdoors. We felt safe and the service was good. The current menu is a bit reduced in scope - but food selections were good, food was fine and portions substantial. No complaints about the bier! The gin and tonic was a bit weak- so best plan is to stick to the brews.

SO glad they’re still open. This is a terrific asset to the community and I wish them all the luck going forward. I will be coming back with the whole family. I can’t wait until they have live music again! Keeping the “canned” music going on interim would help to keep the mood festive. Maybe the staff could get the customers going a little with the “Ein, zwei, drei g’suffa”!

The place was empty when we got there. Our servers were not all that attentiv, even though we were essentially the only people there. The beer was good. But no red cabbage.

As usual, the service was exceptional, and served in a timely fashion. This trip, the jeagerschnitzel was a little tough. We have had it before and it is usually very tender and juicy, this time, not so much.

We missed the music, but understand with the current pandemic. I have eaten at the home store, in Munich many times, and the music is a must. I will be glad when it returns.

Preferencing this review with the fact I haven't been to a Hofbräuhaus in other cities and there's an expectation of "European-style service."

This place clearly needs the construction around it that was planned, but canceled (soccer stadium, etc) as the place was pretty empty. Mostly older couples (55+) and families. Service took absolutely forever and the food was nothing to be excited about. My order arrived cold, but given our server didn't return for 20-30 minutes, couldn't do anything about it. I think they're trying their best with their current staffing situation, but it took over 20 minutes just to get a lid for a to go drink... Would not go back.

Great food, lots of seating. Made a 4pm reservation on a Sunday and was surprised at seat availability. The snow storm probably had a little too do with that. Was hoping to hear some live music. Beer was excellent.

We ate at Hofbrauhaus for Valentine's Day. We ordered the special for $60, which I feel was a great deal! My husband and I each got 1 liter of beer, an entree, and 3 chocolate covered strawberries on a beautifully chocolate and raspberry cream decorated plate.

Took my daughter there "in the era of COVID". Surprised that the huge hall didn't have people spread throughout to maintain social distancing: but everyone have to be in `open air'. Government rules assuming smaller eating spaces are probably to blame. With the shortened menu, had great appetizers and entrees. For that, would definitely recommend and will go there again. They lost a star for their desserts. Their black forest cake was very expensive for the size, too sugary, and lacked the taste of cherry liquor.

Loved our waitress. But it was freezing cold and a bit uncomfortable. When making the reservation it should of said we would be in front of the open door with no heaters. Food was very good!
