We decided to drive over to Belleville and give the Hofbrauhaus a try. We’re glad we did, it was a great experience. They were out of a couple of their beers but the zwickel and weizen seasonal beers were good. The German band trio was...More

We stopped by for dinner after a long, rainy day of political canvassing before tomorrow’s election. What a pleasant evening! The pretzels with beer cheese, roasted German sausages with sauerkraut, mashed potatoes & gravy were all yummy. I had the Dunkel Weizen beer while my...More

I spent my service time in Germany back in the early 70's. I'm always looking for good German food and beer to bring back the memory of some good times I had in the Army. Well, the Hofbrauhaus did more than that. The food was...More

I've been to 4 of these Hofbrauhaus and this one is okay. All I have to say is the Newport, KY is the best of them all for a few reasons. This one served me German potato salad cold and tasted like Amish potato salad....More
