Terribly slow service. Received our appetizers before our meal order was even taken. Very loud. Worst quality food we have ever had there. Usually have a great experience at this place but this visit was awful

If you like German food this is the place for you. Most of the entrees are not particularly healthy but everyone gets to indulge once in a while. The service was outstanding. The place was loud, but exciting.

We celebrated my daughters 39th birthday there. It seemed as though everyone in the place was celebrating right along with us. We had a fun festive evening.

After visiting the Cleveland Hofbrauhaus two times where I experienced great (crowd pleasing) entertainment I was disappointed in the entertainment quality of the Columbus location. One accordion player that spoke a lot in between songs but his words were undecipherable as the noise level was very high. No sing along songs played.

It was so loud and so hot but our group of 7-10 year old girls and their parents had a blast and some good food. They got us in quickly with a reservation for 20 and fed us quickly.

Best German food in Columbus (at lest that I have found so far)! I love this place - the wait staff is excellent. I went 4 times in February (Doppel Bock is my favorite beer). One waiter remembered me at the end of the month after waiting on me one time at the beginning of the month. That says a lot about the staff adn the pride they take in their work.

If you want great food, great service, and a little bit (maybe a lot at times) of a rowdy, energetic atmosphere, this is the place. If you are looking for a quieter time with the same great food and great service ask to sit upstairs. They have it all. What is not to love. Never been disappointed at the Hofbrauhaus Columbus.

The food was very average and overpriced, but the server himself was good. It smacks of hypocrisy that the women are in revealing lederhosen but the men in a button-up and khakis. The beer was good & we would consider coming back to spend time in the beer garden when the weather improves and if they were to correct the imbalance in the wardrobe for their staff.

The only issue was we reserved a high top when we got there on time they did not have one and we got a table. Not that big of a deal though. It was our first time there. We will be back.

We ordered the Valentine's special dinner which included a drink, soup or salad, entree, and dessert for two for $50. Definitely a good deal but too much food - we took dessert to go. We always enjoy the live music too.

The food was wonderful, the service was fast, friendly and professional.

The noise level was hard to take. If you have a hearing problem, you might try to get a table on the edge, not in the middle under the high ceiling. My husband wears hearing aids and it was still difficult to talk without shouting. Some sound baffling would really help.

We would go again, but I would never take my parents - too hard to hear.
