Our waitress was outstanding! The music was very good, but a little too loud and made it tough to have a conversation. The food was good.

We enjoyed having lunch at the HofBrauhaus. Since we wanted to try a variety of food, we chose the lunch buffet which had a nice variety of foods. There were fresh greens and a variety of veggies for building your own salad. There were several choices for salad dressings and also croutons and chesses for toppings. For dessert we chose the apple strudel which was served warm with a delicious vanilla sauce. We enjoyed the selection of beers that we could choose and what we chose was very good. Our server was very professional and she did a great job!

It was super loud downstairs, so they were kind enough to move us upstairs. It was perfect! We had 2 yr old twins and a 10 yr old with us. Everyone had a great time. The food was DELICIOUS and the service WONDERFUL. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for making our Mother's Day Celebration a great time.

The food there at Hofbauhaus has been good everytime I have gone and that is about 5-6 times now. Their beer is very good and not too heavy. I always enjoy the bright and happy music they play up on stage as well.
My family really had enjoyed it there the last I had gone there for Mother's Day. It actually wasn't too busy there on Mother's Day which was nice too. We had gotten the yard sampler, appetizer and 2 of the Schmankerlplatte for 2. It was enough for 6-7 people and we had 5, weren't able to finish it all. It was all well worth the price!

It’s a fun experience, food is good. Unfortunately we didn’t ask to sit upstairs. Downstairs is loud, bench seating that is difficult to maneuver.

Food and service were great and we were seated promptly. Our table was in front of the gentleman playing the accordion so it was so loud we couldn’t really have a conversation until he took a break. They recognized and introduced all of the OSU grads that were there which I thought was nice.

We had a large group of 15 celebrating OSU graduation on Sunday. Service and food were excellent. The servers did a great job of taking care of us over several hours and didn't make us feel rushed. Would recommend for large group celebrations.

Great evening with family. We had some of our Hungarian family in for a visit and took him to Hofbrau Haus. He could not get over the atmosphere, the music, the friendly staff and the food. He kept saying how it reminded him of his food growing up in Youngstown. My wife played in a German band in high school and was singing along with all the songs. I told her to bring her clarinet next time and ask to join in.
Enjoy the food, enjoy the friendly atmosphere, and keep coming back.

Invited our friends from out of town to meet us for lunch here. Very disappointed that the quality and taste of their lunch buffet has gone down hill. We won't be returning to Hofbrauhaus again nor would we recommend it. Next time we go to Schmidts.

We had never been here before and finally gave it a try on a Monday night. Food was excellent and service was great. The German potato salad was a standout, very good. We had the appetizer sampler, pretzels, sauerkraut balls, fried pickles, potato pancakes and everything was very tasty! We will definitely go again and will take family there when they are visiting Columbus. A unique atmosphere and dining experience.

Hi. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary so it was a big deal to us. The accordion player made it nice. Announced it and we danced the polka
But the food was not good. Our daughter had a burger, we ordered it well. She couldn't eat it, it was still red. no time to send it back as we had an event after. She ended up not eating. Our two other daughters got the veggie burgers and did't eat them as well. My husband ate his Ruben, I had the grilled chicken which was fine. the mashed potato were cold and I didn't eat them and the German potato salad was also cold. So disappointing. Nice atmosphere but our bill was $95 and we were all starving after as no one ate their food
