Confirming that the Foster City Harry's Hofbrau is closed. Work on the lot to open a new hotel and conjecture about a new restaurant has been published in the local newspapers. Won't be The Carvery/Harry's second coming. Redwood City is still hanging in there.

What do you get when you take a 1960's cafeteria into Bavaria? You get a German-flavored institution that serves enormous amounts of better-than-average cafeteria food for not too much dough. Over St Patty's day their corned beef special (we did not try) but you could...More

A hand carved sandwich or a meal plate, this place is a great, traditional Hofbrau. Eaten here a couple of times and always happy. It is like walking into a restaurant from an earlier era, sort of that traditional look. Quiet enough to talk in...More
