This is becoming our go to place before Crew games. We enjoy the food (and bier) and the location is good.
The service was very good. As expected the ambiance was lively. We went for a Saturday brunch. The brunch menu is limited. I ordered the Belgian Waffle. It was very disappointing. The taste was like flour and the waffle not as thick as I expected for a Belgian Waffle. It had a small drizzle of raspberry syrup and some white stuff that was supposed to be whipped cream. It came with two small pieces of bacon. The others in my part had the breakfast skillet and were pleased.
Wonderful food and a very fun atmosphere. Servers are very good at their jobs and it is overall a great place to eat on a football Saturday!
Clearly, the best place in central Ohio for German food and beer.
Everything was great.
Wish they would provide info on happy hour when ordering. Hard to hear as well.
It was my families first time there and they loved it!
Our female, dark-haired server on 10/12/21 at lunchtime was curt, seemed really annoyed by our presence and menu questions in the otherwise empty restaurant, and didn't want to so much as lift a finger to fetch an extra plate for us for dessert. She pointed to a saucer we had on the table for another use, like, there's a plate. The ambience and food were amazing, but this shockingly rude individual nearly ruined my birthday lunch out with my out of town Dad. I'll be back, but I'll be bluntly asking for a server with some basic manners.
Great German food, beer, entertainment, and atmosphere.
Very good German/Bavarian food. Something on the menu for everyone. Food quality was excellet. Great Service. Live entertainment.
Sweet 16! Celebration! Great service great food! Wished their would have been music to mark the special day.
Great food and service for my husband's birthday celebration.
Had a group of women and we did enjoy it, but we had hoped to be outside in bier garden, as it is hard to hear inside the restaurant. Otherwise everything was great.
We went to hofbrauhaus for the first time pre COVID with a large company group; placed at the head table, very loud fun atmosphere with live music.
We went last month with 2 families, seated at the head table but no live music; it was Sunday and they advised they are only doin live entertainment on Saturday. The server was excellent and we had a great time.
We went again this weekend Sept. 19 which was a Sunday and sadly no live music. I feel this is unacceptable as we’ve been to several other restaurants that offer live entertainment on weekends AND OKTOBERFEST!! I mean yes we were told last month Saturday only entertainment but for the restaurant not to make it happen for OKTOBERFEST is the, just not tryin; not to mention the entertainment portion of the restaurant is part of the atmosphere and appeal. Service was just ok this time.
We will likely go back again but it’s hard to go rushing back because without the live music the atmosphere is definitely lacking.
We brought home a cream puff for our neighbor last week from here.She loved it.She asked us about the food and the address of the Hofbrauhaus. So we invited her to come with us. A great time had by all.
Went to celebrate a birthday and had a really nice time. The food as always was excellent, hot and consistently properly made. The best place in town for real German food.
It's a wonderful place with an authentic biergarten ambience. Just be prepared when the band is playing, it's very loud if you're trying to have conversation at your table. Great place to visit!
Great beer, food, service, ambiance, and value! Always have a blast at Hofbrauhaus!
Great potato soup
This restaurant has really gone downhill. The food was always an second choice is town but the atmosphere was fun and the beer was good. This time our service was horrible and the food was awful. The potato pancakes were greasy and they didn’t have the sauerkraut balls for the appetizer sampler. They subbed in frozen mozzarella sticks (not on the menu at all) with no sauce. The wurst were under cooked and were not served with the traditional mustard. When we requested the mustard, we were given a little cup. Much to our surprise when we received the bill, we were charged $2 for this tiny bit of mustard. Not to mention, the potato’s in the German potatoes salad were uncooked and crunchy (I.e. raw).
The service was was so bad that the food was a highlight. We were amazed that we never saw our server even though the restaurant was mostly empty. We waited quite a long time for anyone to wait on our table and when the waiter arrived it was like he just showed up. He was still putting on his apron when he came to the table. Through most of the meal, we had dirty dishes in front of us including when he dropped the check in the middle of the table. Just really bad service.
Just avoid this place until they improve or close.
It was sad there was no live music (only saturdays right now) but we still had a great time!
Wonder place, great staff, food was delicious, will definitely go again
Monthly daddy-daughter date night for the keg tapping.
The pumpkin dunkel is amazing
Had party of 20. Great service and food. Big crowd for Crew pre-game Very loud but quite down once pre-gamers left.
First time visiting this establishment. It was a great setup for a large group, 7 of us. The service was a little lackluster, but like everywhere else, they are short of help. The food was delicious and we weren’t in a hurry, so that’s all that really matters. Will definitely return!
Pretty good. Very loud, but it is Bavarian after all. The food was good, my only complaint was that that food was not hot. It was sort of warm, maybe about room temperature or a little warmer. I just generally like my food warmer, like on the verge of hot. The cabbage was really bland, but maybe that's authentic, not sure. The German potato salad was tasty! Overall the place was clean and fun and seemed authentic enough.
First time here and we loved it ! Mackenzie was great! Loved the cream puffs🥰
Always a good choice…never had a negative experience. Good beer and good food!!!
So fun! We hosted a work get together during family night and the kids loved the face paint! Great food and drinks too!
The only thing missing was the option for the fried pickles. It made us sad, but we understand that it was out of their control. This is my favorite German restaurant in Columbus, OH.
We ate outside on a beautiful day everything was outstanding as usual as we celebrated our 25th anniversary. What we loved the most though is best restaurant service we have received in the last 18 months. Adam had great beer recommendations and made sure we knew how big the portions were when I ordered 2 meals! We wanted leftovers and they were just as good reheated 🤩😋
Our group of 10 was seated promptly when we got to the Hofbauhaus. Our server Lindsey took our orders with no fuss. Our food came out quickly. The food was good and plentiful. Our only regret was that they were out of cream puffs for desert.
Enjoyed it. Beer is always good and they have wine for the wife. I enjoy German food. Service was good. One caveat--note that the seasonal beer is not part of Happy Hour. It was still good.
Love going to Hofbrauhaus for their monthly keg tapping! Nothing like a lot of accordion and polka music!!
We went to celebrate our son’s birthday and the keg tapping. Was a lot of fun and food and beer were excellent
Monthly Keg tapping was great as always, looking forward to next month.
Great food. Noisy. Upstairs closed. Booth ok main floor.
I was so excited with the authentic German cousins and beers 🍺🍖🥨
Went for restaurant week- 3 course menu for $20 which is a great value since most main courses are $15-19. First course shd have been a choice of appetizer not soup. Especially when enjoying one of their good beers. Entree was large so took the cream puff home.
Sat on patio since it was a nice evening. Waiter was attentive and accommodating.
Great place to meet friends & have good food.
