Although somewhat of a chain, we enjoy our German food and bier, and the Hofbrauhaus satiates that craving. We especially liked that it was within walking distance of our hotel. The food, however, is a bit pricey for a schnitzel, and bier. Nonetheless, we enjoyed...More

Not healthy. Not extraordinary. Not unbelievable service. Just a good combination of all. This is a unique family dining experience. Good food. Decent service. Fabulous atmosphere. Big tables. Loud. Okay beer. Just like to one in Munich!

Having been to the original in Munich I was expecting the worst (or should it be wurst). It was definitely an Americanised view of what this kind of place should be but I was pleasantly surprised - good Hefeweizen and a nice band playing all...More

My main complaint was how loud it was. couldn't hear the person sitting beside me. Food was decent but they weren't flexible on the parings.

It's been a while since we have gone to a German restaurant, back in the day Chicago had some GREAT ones like Zum Deutschen Eck , Hans Bavarian Lodge , Berghoff,Brauhaus,Mirabell's and Laschet's. So we're thinking Hofbrauhaus is going to be as good or even...More

Hofbrauhaus Chicago is the first and only German micro brewery, beer hall, restaurant and beer garden to call Chicago home. Modeled after the legendary Hofbrauhaus 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. Hofbrauhaus Chicago also features live music nightly with bands from Germany and Austria. In addition, you can take a piece of Bavaria home from the gift shop stocked with authentic and unique Bavarian gifts & collectibles.
