This has been a family favorite of ours for a very long time. It's a must stop for lunch when we visit Morro Bay. The roast beef sandwich is by far my favorite thing on the menu. Honestly, I've never had anything else on the...More

Busy place even early evening. Ordered at front counter found table and food arrived shortly after. Great fresh fish with light Crispy batter and a bowl of yummy chowder instead of chips. Brilliant and thoroughly recommendable

I visit Morro Bay once or twice a year and Hofbrau is often my first stop for food. That french dip sandwich is carved right in front of you and they aren't making tiny portions. Great food, great people, wonderful view. Always worth the visit.

Too hungry to wait 1.5 hours for a table for 2 at the restaurant opposite, we went to Hofbrau instead. Turns out, not too shabby an alternative - true, no nice table cloths, servers, and high end cutleries, but where the food meets the mouth,...More
