About Hofbrauhaus - Chicago
Hofbräuhaus Chicago is the first and only German micro brewery, beer hall, restaurant and beer garden to call Chicago home. Modeled after the legendary Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany, it takes pride giving you an experience as authentic and unforgettable as the 400-year-old original. Guests can savor schnitzels, sausages, Sauerbraten and pretzels, and some ingredients are even imported from abroad. The freshly brewed beer follows the purity law from 1516 using original recipes handed down by the Duke of Bavaria over 400 years ago. With its beer hall (Schwemme), King Ludwig Room, and Biergarten in summer, it's Oktoberfest every day. Hofbräuhaus Chicago also features live music nightly with bands from Germany and Austria.

Hofbrauhaus - Chicago Ratings and Reviews
Awesome as always! The pretzel is a staple to get, and the food is very authentic. It's a great place to bring kids of all ages! It's so loud and festive that if a child does get upset, you won't hear them!!
An experience everyone should check out!! Love, love it! Have been to this location at least 7 times in the past 2 years...and its always delicious!
The food and service were excellent. Just a bit too raucous for my taste. Tough to speak to your fellow diners with all those big horns blowing. But it should be experienced at least once. I may go back just for dessert, as the pretzel bread pudding sounds amazing and I am a sucker for a good apple strudel (after all, It counts as a serving of fruit, right?).
The place was obnoxiously loud first off. Plus I'm not one who likes to be seated with random people.
The food was ehhh at best. The schnitzel was more like an unseasoned porkchop, mashed had a funny parsnip taste, but the pretzel w/ cheese sauce was very good.
Service was good. Our waiter was super friendly and prompt even with it being a zoo.
We came here for a friend's birthday on a Friday evening for dinner/drinks. I made a reservation, and upon arrival it was clear there was plenty of seating left. There was an energetic live band which created a great "festive" mood. TIP: Be sure to order a round of shots! They serve it on a paddle and guests can choose a lucky "birthday boy" to get spanked by the waitress!
Once again we had a great time at the Hoff. The Tower appetizer is nice to share - ample servings of several different sausages, sauerkraut, cold potato salad, and pretzels with 2 different types of mustard. For dinner, combo platters are satisfying and fun to try many items. Mashed Potatoes are a must have - very classic and very good. Pork Roast and gravy excellent, Schnitzel is a good and so is smoke pork chop and Sauerbraten. Kids meals are ok - basic choices such as mac and chse, hot dog or chicken strips. Nothing special but kids do like the soft pretzels and cheese. Coffee is very good but service tends to be slow so you will wait for refills. Servers are very good but they seem to have a long walk back and forth to kitchen. Live entertain never disappoints. Always enjoyable. This time the drummer sang the National Anthem and it was just beautiful! Great place -
This was my first time at Hofbrauhaus and I must say that it was so much more than I expected. The atmosphere was lively, welcoming, and electric. The wait staff are friendly and proud of the authentic German cuisine and beverages; they'll even give you their honest perspective on the menu items, because let's admit, not many of us are familiar with German eating. There was a live band performing traditional German & Austrian entertainment. The best part was witnessing the band getting the WHOLE restaurant involved with the entertainment. I truly felt like I was transplanted into an Oktoberfest celebration. So much fun! I will definitely be coming back again!
THE FOOD WAS AUTHENTIC, SPEAKING AS SOMEONE RAISED ON GERMAN FOOD. THE POTATO
PANCAKES SMELLED AND TASTED JUST LIKE MOM'S. THE RED CABBAGE WAS DREAMY, THE BACON SALAD...DELICIOUS !....MY "KRISPY" PORK SHANK CERTAINLY WAS AS ADVERTISED AND
WAS A SUPERB PIECE OF PORK!......WE WERE NOT INTERESTED IN BEER, AND THE HOUSE COCKTAILS WERE ACCEPTABLE, YET EXTREMELY OVERPRICED !...AMONG THE HIGHEST I HAVE PAID FOR ANYWHERE ! ! SO BE PREPARED......DINNER FOR TWO WITH AN APPETIZER AND A COUPLE OF COCKTAILS EACH WILL SET YOU BACK $ 150 +......STILL THE EXPERIENCE EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AND I WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO A RETURN VISIT !
I had heard about HofBrauhaus and wanted to try it. Our waiter was inattentive considering the restaurant was fairly empty, there might have been 40 people in the whole place. When the waiter showed up, it looked like he just woke up! We ordered five entrees, and two beers. The food was average, we had a couple chicken sandwiches that were bland. A plate of white sausage that seemed to be just reheated and was cold. The sauerbraten was tough, chewy, and not much taste and most of it ended up in my paper napkin. I guess I've been spoiled at Bergoff Cafe. The $13.00 pretzel was good, and the beer was excellent. There are a lot places I can go to get good food and good beer for a lot less than $200.00! We probably won't be back.
