They have a limited menu- no Spaetzle! The liverwurst was hot, tender and juicy; potato salad was very good; roasted pork was flavorful but not tender enough, a bit chewy. It was very difficult to talk across the table due to the noise. The accordionist was great.

Everything was great! The only part that wasn’t was they couldn’t split our bill. Other than that, all good! Will be back soon.

Music and atmosphere were enjoyable and welcoming. Service was good and the beer was outstanding, Food needs some work but the kitchen isn't fully operational so I didn't expect much.

Waitress was taking plates before diners were finished eating. Food so, so...would have like to see more variety...? No potato pancakes? There were 4 in our party and we all pretty much agreed on this review.

Had high hopes for this place! It didn't quite live up... Having lived in Germany for a couple of years, my husband and I were anxious for the Hofbrauhaus to open up here and give us some real German food. Went on a Sunday night to celebrate husband's birthday. First disappointment is that we could not order schnitzel or spaetzle. We had to order from the limited menu which was heavy on the sausage and sauerkraut. The large pretzel was good and we ordered another, which ended up taking a very long time to arrive. Had to question server about it. We never did get it until we were done with our dinners. It was good and the kids ate it up quickly, but it seemed to take an excessive amount of time to receive. Food was OK overall. Beer was ok but a larger selection would be great at some point. The entertainment was good but very loud. It was very difficult to talk to the family when they were playing. I get that it's part of the experience though. Love the building and the ambiance but I really feel like they could do better. I hope it works out for them here. I know Covid is limiting right now but would love to order off a full menu and really get a great German experience!

Fun, lively place!! Needed during the pandemic!
Food could be better and more authentic. It was okay good. Not bad. But nothing exciting. I was expecting true German food.

Great Food, and our waitress was great. We enjoyed the basic pretzel with cheese sauce as an app, and a variety of main courses. Mine was the chicken bratwurst. Super tasty. The Marzen and Bock styles are Superb. What an enjoyable afternoon.

Because they're so new, the menu was limited. There was no spatzel, some sausages or other German favorites. Its best to see the online menu. With that being said, I definitely will go back because the food we did have was excellent, but only after a full menu is ready. Service was great, staff friendly & atmosphere was very German...lol
