We enjoyed the ambience and the German atmosphere. We had the paprika schnitzel (so-so); jager schnitzel (so-so), mussels, pretty good; wurst plate, pretty good; and, their large selection of German beers. Service was good.

Decided to have good German food with an old friend. Decor is old world. Bartender was one of the owners and she was very pleasant. Wine was good. Wiener Schnitzel was excellent! Always a good meal at the Hofbrau!
