    Server came by 15 min before happy hour ended and took my order, the rest of my family got there 5 min before the deadline and she didn’t come back till a few min after deadline. She then gave us a hard time about giving us the same deal for my family, but we were collectively there before the deadline and she just didn’t come back. Her mood was annoyed the rest of the time. My food personally was bland and disgusting but she never came back to see how things were, so I just didn’t eat anything of it. Let her know I didn’t like it when she came with boxes, and she just said sorry and took the plate. Not can I get you anything else? Terrible service.

    One of the remaining restaurants with a focus on German foods. I had the Jägerschnitzel and loved it. Great location and great service from Danielle. Hope the restaurant owner can work a deal with the owner of the parking lot so that patrons do not have to pay $5 to park. (I was able to park on the street.)

    We visited on a Tuesday for my son’s birthday. Sadly, I didn’t look into it ahead of time and they don’t have live music everyday. We were pleasantly surprised to discover weekly specials though! Dinner was half the cost of previous visits. Our server was fantastic and the restaurant was clean.

    Well curated menu of authentic and delicious German food. I was really impressed by the high quality! Great place for a fun party but maybe not for a casual dinner with a couple of friends: it’s loud and tough to hear each other. Next time, we’ll opt out of the main beer hall for a more intimate space outside or by the bar.

    The beer was great and so was the service. The food was ok. Not great German food as expected, but decent americanized cuisine. Portions were small and pricey. I am German and expected more, certainly not even close to the original as far as the food goes. However, the ambiance and beer are right on the money.

    Was not like a German beer hall … food was just ok … not bad but nothing I would go back for. Music was just canned pop music… not themed to match beer hall vibe …. Over all was a disappointing experience… probably won’t go back

    This is my third time at the Hoffrahouse. Our first experience was back when they first opened and everything was amazing. Our second experience was HORRIBLE. It was a Saturday around 6pm. We had a party of 12 and the service was so slow that by the time they brought our food they immediately came to our table and told us that we needed to finish up bc they had another group ready for our table because we were nearing our two hour mark. We explained that our waitress had taken our order over 45 minutes ago and that it wasn’t our fault. We had not even taken a bite yet and she had brought our tab. We tried to order a few more beers to have with our dinner and she refused. Our tab was at this point well over a grand. The worst part was, people walked over to our table and stood at it. As soon as someone in our party stood up to use the bathroom, one of the new guests sat at the end of our table and wouldn’t get up. They claimed that they had a reservation and the host had instructed them that our table was to be theirs once we were finished. I am NOT judgmental but we were a group of High Paying adults with a tab well over $1300.00 once we paid and tipped and they were throwing us out for a group of college kids. Lastly, my third visit was last Monday. We had family visiting from out of town and they wanted to experience it. We checked the website and made our reservation. Our service was decent but they did not have live music like they had advertised on their website. The experience was mediocre but probably bc the place was empty.

    Food was very good! Noise level was very loud. Hard to talk/hear people at your table. Was disappointed that there was no German music band playing that we were told would be. They apparently cancelled at the last minute. It was our first time there and we were looking forward to hearing them. Bill was incorrect for several at our table. They don’t bring you a written check to view. Only give you a printout after you’ve paid.

    Everything was fine but I expected it to be a bit more crowded than it was. It was "dead" at 12:30 on Sunday for brunch. Surprising. The server was excellent and was able to replace one meal (an omlette which we did not understand would contain potatoes - and did not want) for us. The food and drink was of high quality. Overall a very good experience and we will (already) have recommended Hofbrauhaus to others.

    First impression was very positive: they accommodating our vegetarian needs, allowed us to move to a preferred table and the hostess and server were attentive and friendly. The appetizers and entrees are plentiful and the deserts are delicious. This lunch was so worth the trip. I will be returning soon.

    It might have been because it was July 4th, but Waiter seemed distracted. My husband's pork was tough and dried out. When he told the waiter nothing was offered to correct or compensate for the problem.
