    Just a fantastic time all around. I believe our server was Kaitlyn. She totally helped us out. I know we were a big group. She took care of us in stride. And we truly had a lot of fun. We had two tables in front of the stage. I didn’t realize a lot of my group was noise sensitive so next time I’ll remind them to bring ear plugs.

    Hofbrauhaus is a unique experience that has an authentic Bavarian feel to it. The beer hall is large and open. The German music provided by a live band made it fun. We had several appetizers, fish fry, and LARGE glass mugs of beer. The lager and dunkel are tasty. We also tried the blood orange beer and coffee porter; both had nice flavor without being over powering. After 9PM the atmosphere changes with a DJ playing contemporary music. It's fun, but a little more loud and raucous. Our server, Lina, was a great guide and helped us select food and drink. She added to the fun as well!

    Went prior to going to a concert across the street. Had reservations and were sat quickly but the were way understaffed for the number people dining. Ended up nearly being late, but I would definitely go back. The food and beer are very good and the atmosphere is fun.

    I like the beer hall feel, and the service is always good. We had 4 people for lunch before a sabres game. Each person had a meal off the lunch menu and a liter of beer and the bill game to $141.00. $35.25 is not cheap even in this economy. They also need to stock more varieties of draft beer. a lager, a dark and a wheat. Thats it. They need to tap Warsteiner, Spaten, etc. as well. I'd go again but I will always wish they had more for less!

    Our party of 3 arrived at 5:45p for a 6:00pm reservation and were told we had to wait until 6:00pm for a table while they seated walk-ins with no reservation! After watching at least 50 walk-ins seated ahead of us, we asked again at 6:10pm and they took us to a table below a known leak in the roof (known according to the waitress). My wife sat down on and her pants were soaked because they failed to wipe off the seat. The Irish music was unbearably loud. Our waitress was outstanding and apologized for seating us below the roof leak. The food was good but the overall experience was awful. Never again.

    Everything was great! The waitress was very nice and attentive, the food was delicious and the band, Parkside Avenue Brass, was awesome. They really mix the song choices and get the crowd involved. Fun and interactive. My favorite band that plays there. Our waitress agreed. I will be back when they are playing again.

    Overall the worst HBH I have been too. So comparing this to Cleveland, Pittsburg, and the one and only München. Portions are small and for the money you can have a better meal at the original.

    I hate saying it was a great place to go before a Sabres game because it will get busy and for selfish reasons but I have to say they offer excellent specials for happy hour and there beer is top notch. Please stay away so I can enjoy the place to myself. Just kidding the more the merrier

    An overall outstanding experience recently at the Hofbrauhaus Buffalo! I've been to Hofbrauhaus Munich and the Buffalo location is the closest thing you can get this side of the Atlantic. The beer is brewed on site meeting strict Hofbrauhaus standards and complying with the German beer purity law. The signature Lager, Dunkel, and Hefe Weizen are always available in half and full liter mugs along with a seasonal style. For non beer drinkers there is a full range of liquors available including a variety of German schnapps. The food menu is simply excellent with items available for both German food lovers and those that favor a more local palette. My personal favorites are the jumbo (and I mean JUMBO) pretzel, the German wursts (sausages) and Munich pork roast with a side of spatzle. If you're lucky enough to be there when the pork shank is available as a special, grab one before they're gone! The ambiance is traditional German beer hall including live music from a German band. It can get very lively and chances are you will make new friends. And the service ... the best!! Servers are friendly and will patiently walk you through the beer and food menus. Don't forget to take home a crowler or two of fresh German beer! Hofbräuhaus Buffalo is conveniently located close to KeyBank Center and Sahlen Field so it's a great place to go before or after a game. There are plenty of TVs in the bar area for those that want to stay to watch the Sabres or Bisons and during football season there is no better place to cheer on the Bills outside of the stadium. Follow Hofbrauhaus Buffalo on Facebook to learn about all the special events that are held here. Hofbräuhaus Buffalo is a one of a kind experience in Buffalo that will not disappoint. Go once and like me, you'll quickly find yourself there often. Prost!

    We booked a table for 10 and were given two tables in the corner rather than a long table in the middle where we could all converse easier. Our waiter also didn’t ask if we wanted separate bills (fairly obvious with 10 guys attending dinner together) and told us when he brought out one bill that “we don’t do that here”, which isn’t true since HB has done this multiple times before for us. Hoping this was a one off

    We have taken many local and out of town guests here. The food is always amazzzzzzzing! I understand the shortage of staff out there, but the team makes it work! Lately, a little slower asking for order, so I couldn't give that 5 because of this. However, we are willing to wait ! The floors are sticky because of the shots, so if you don't like sticky floors, you may want to get a back table. Also, they are in the beer business along with food. I wish they would off a variety of "foofoo" drinks. They have a great bar, but do not serve all drinks. All in all.. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant!! Kudo's!
