Love going to Hofbrauhaus for their monthly keg tapping! Nothing like a lot of accordion and polka music!!

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.

The food here is always good, but the special pricing for 614 Food Week made it even better!

Good selection and large portions of German cuisine, but preparation was only mediocre. Jaegerschnitzel had more coating than meat and was overcooked. Expensive except for limited "Restaurant Week" menu, which had excellent food prices. VERY noisy. German music used to be a highlight, but now is offered very rarely, and not when we were there.

Cool place. We had a big group for Columbus Restaurant Week; reservation went off without a hitch, and the hostess was very nice. The menu they posted online before the event didn’t match the menu when we arrived, which was really unfortunate. Noted this to the waiter who seemed totally unconcerned and encouraged us to hurry up and make a food choice (a bit weird considering that it wasn’t very busy). Food was good overall, and I’d likely order take out, but wouldn’t visit again. Between the extremely loud environment and the waiter, I’d much rather go elsewhere.

Three of the four meals had an overpowering mushroom taste. If you really like mushrooms it might be your thing but it wasn’t for me or my family.

We came to celebrate my son’s birthday. We love Hofbrauhaus as a fun, casual place for a family lunch, dinner or just grabbing a Bier! We sat inside this time, but we also love the Biergarten!

The service was great and they accommodated our request beautifully for a table near the front entrance due to us having a handicapped guest. The band was definitely missed (especially on the weekends) and it would have been great to hear German music being played in lieu of the live music. Instead, the music was faint and all you could hear were the guests shouting. Took away from the fun. Hopefully, this is all because of covid and won’t be the norm.

Hofsbrauhaus is a fun family gathering place. The German food is authentically excellent. Draft beer is always great. Very nice house lager. It was a beautiful summer day, so we dined in the garden.

There was no entertainment. There used to be someone playing music and the wait staff doing German dances. Very sad. Food is priced high to not have entertainment. Beer is great!

Enjoyed the restaurant, but I booked a normal table and got a high top. My party was all short and had a hard time with the chairs.

Was our first maybe only time in town but wanted authentic German food. The food was good, the atmosphere is loud but that's ok, it's a German beer hall experience! My only twinge, not really disappointment, is that I discovered there's a Germantown area and this restaurant isn't in it.

We really enjoyed our experience. The food was good.
The Dunker bourbon sauce is awesome. Brittany was amazing. She did a great job and it seems like she had a lot of tables. I rated the noise down one only because of the room design. We enjoy the open area, but want to let others know if you want quiet to ask for a table upstairs.
