The beer is great. The food is okay. This place was so much fun! The entertainment was great! The band was high energy. They taught us sing alongs and we sang typical sing alone songs (like brown eyed girl and low places.) We were all standing on benches and singing along by the end of the night. Great place to...

Food isn't bad. Beer is good and the atmosphere is really good. There are two rooms One is the traditional Hofbrauhaus with a stage and live music. The other is like a standard biergarten hall. If you prefer it not so loud, go to the hall. On the weekends you'll have a pretty long wait for the stage and live... More

Good food, good service, good beer, just a little hard to hear each other in there. Nice section of town. Not too pricey either.

We were there to celebrate a 60th birthday, not enough room at the big table since a few people showed up unexpectedly so we sat at the bar. Very good food, good service. Noisy and very busy - even on a Wednesday night. But it is a beer hall and this is what we expected.

Fried pickles, fresh hot pretzels with beer cheese, and big big big BEERS! Food is not too bad, don't expect to be blown away by it, you go for the beer and the Lederhosen!

Fun place to hang out with your friends and sing along to the German music. This restaurant offers inside and outside dining (weather permitting). It is on the Southside of Pittsburgh.

This restaurant has one big hall with additional places to sit. The hall really resembles an atmosphere of German beer festivals with live performance. Waitresses dressed in traditional German outfits. Vast variety of foods, mostly unhealthy pork but so good. Good choices of beer. Very nice place for dinner for any age

Enjoy delicious German cuisine in a beer hall while listening to German music and being served by waitresses in traditional Oktoberfest garb. This place gives you the whole experience! Awesome beers and great schnitzel. Family style seating at long tables is true to authentic German beer houses.
