Good food and fun atmosphere. We had a reservation and the hostess couldn't find it at first, said there wasn't one then eventually found it. Then the seating hostess told us to follow her, then told us to wait for another seating hostess but ended up seating us herself anyway. I found the hostesses very unorganized
So few German restaurants around these days. A fun place to go with great food. However, cost of sides with no substitutions is a costly proposition. And I’m far from cheap!
Suprisingly delicious, large servings. Wonderful beer. Very friendly and attentive service, especially for a such a large place. The oopah band was delightful. The only issue was seating -- even though we had reservations and even though we arrived at a non-peak time (4pm) the less-than-friendly hostess tried to seat us at a table stuck in the back, away from the band. We pushed back and got a great table.
My 1st time at this restaurant by the Fashion Mall complex in Rosemont by hotels by O'Hare. Have been wanting to go since it opened. It's a large authentic German restaurant and micro brew. Really large. Was impressed that they has live German music on a Tuesday night. There happened to be a large charity fundraiser for Diabetes. When we arrived it was empty, but the time we left it was packed. Great german food and beer. Just like a beer hall in Munich. Highly recommend.
Very unimpressed. Food was Ok at best. Very expensive for what you got
Great food. Energetic setting. Great for large groups.
Great food, the ambiance is great, authentic German dishes
Fun but pricey
Love the place...always have a great time. Good for a night out. Good food, great srivce and great beer. Good old German fun.
Competent German food in a lively setting. Please stop playing American oldies like Sweet Caroline and just stick with the German music that suits the atmosphere. Waitress was very good and was kind with my paddling for my shot.
Did not live up to he hype and food was cold and bland. Just an ok experience not worth the hour drive.
The food didn’t taste like authentic jerman meals. The server was not very nice pushing us to pay and leave because he shift was over. I understand the situation but the tone was rude and she was annoyed by our questions about why mushed potatoes were cold. This is a bad American copy of real German restaurant environment
If you want a very loud, cafeteria style, bavarian food, you will like this place.
Loud, as expected. But unexpectedly the food was just mediocre.
My family went to the Hofbrauhaus in Rosemont on Sunday, January 7, for dinner. We made reservations ahead of time and didn't need to wait. Our server, Karen, was outstanding! She explained the beers, the specials and the menu. She made suggestions on what we might like to order. We shared a huge pretzel as an appetizer. While we were waiting for our food, we enjoyed hearing the band and watching the kids do the "Chicken Dance"! The food was delicious and the portions were big enough that we each had leftovers to take home. The only drawback, was the fact that we were too full for dessert! So Karen suggested we take our desserts to go! Perfect idea!
