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

We have been to Hofbrauhaus several times for celebrations. This time, however, the noise level was far too much. Conversations at the table were impossible. The food was fine, but two of our guests didn't feel well late that evening then again in the morning. Nobody got seriously ill.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Hofbrauhaus in Columbus! It was easy making the Open Table reservation for seven, even on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated promptly and had very good service. We definitely would recommend it and hope to visit again.

The atmosphere was great, but the food we ordered was awful. The face oainting and balloon animals were a hit for the kids. I just can mot get over the food taste, very disappointing because I loved the atmosphere of the place, it was different.

Absolutely love going here. The food is great and the atmosphere festive. Really like the pretzel and beer cheese appetizer. Staff are always friendly. If you are looking for a quiet dinner out, Go somewhere else. The live music and audience involvement make for a little noise.

I can’t say enough amazing things about this place. Everything is always perfect for what this place is and should be. It’s a German Brewery: it’s going to be loud, beer is priced well and tastes amazing, food comes in large portions and is priced well. Perfect for all occasions with people that like a high energy atmosphere restaurant.

I would say prices are a little high for what the food but portions are large and can usually share.

My husband and I met another couple here for dinner tonight. The food was delicious, three of us ordered the Bauern Schnitzel, the other person ordered the pork shank. We all enjoyed our meals. We also got the pretzels and bier cheese. No complaints at all!

Have been here several times, cool German beer hall. Bar, booths, and traditional long tables. Lots of live music. Because it is a big "hall", it's kind of noisy, a little more so than a busy sports bar. Btw, does have TVs on the walls for us sports fans.
Reservations recommended during peak hours (luckily, we founds seats at the bar).
Everything I've ordered has been very good. The beer is great. Service has been very good (with one exception, was slow, our beers ran dry and took a while to get our check). Will totally go again, and would recommend.

I easily made the reservation on line. We were settled upstairs (downstairs is the party room, it can get very loud) and were able to talk and laugh. The server never interrupted, but was always there when needed. We had to fight our selves to not eat all our dinner so we could have dessert. Battle won, we had Chocolate Royal Cream Puffs. After the first fork full we knew we would come back.
