The atmosphere is very European, the food is great and the prices are good for what you get. A little dark inside so be prepared.

Although not as big as the original Hofbräu, the food was awesome and the beer selection was very authentic. Service was wonderful. Atmosphere and German music made me very happy and nostalgic. I would love to go back!

I ordered the Rouladen with red cabbage/rohtkole. Wife ordered Jagerschnitzel (pork schnitzelalso w/red cabbage). Both also come with Spaetzel. The Schnitzel was simply bad. It didn't have that Country-fried-steak feel or breading, but that's OK. It's that it was doused in a gravy that was...More
