Great pizza! I recommend extra pepperoni because hey, can you really ever have too much pepperoni? Pretty darn good hot wings as well.

This is the pizza that I measure all pizza by. I cannot eat pizza anywhere else without comparing it to Hofbrau's pizza. Personal favorites for a Friday night dinner out are the pizza with pepperoni and ham, the antipasto salad, and "Jim's" wings.

This is my families favorite pizza, we get pizza here often. I recommend the Pepperoni pizza because the pepperoni is unique and crispy around the edges. Now for the down side, it's expensive, very expensive for pizza, but their food is good. The pizza is a grease pit, but my family wipes it off and the pizza tastes great!

This place used to have (90's) the best pizza and subs in town. They must have changed ownership/management, because the food we got the other day was embarrassingly bad. The pizza tasted old and my wife's California Cheese Steak was more like a Cheese Stake. No lettuce, no tomato, no flavor…just greece and a lousy roll. I don't plan on... More

The Hofbrau is a tradition to anyone who has lived or lives in or near Bellefonte. I've been frequenting the restaurant since I was a kid. They have by far one of the BEST pizzas around. Not to mention the anti pasta salad with the house dressing is amazing. My husband took me here on our first date, and we... More

The pizza is the best of any that I have ever had and the other menu items (such as sandwiches and salads) are excellent also. The atmosphere is vintage and cozy and the service is personal and friendly. We've been enjoying weekly pizza nights there for the last 35 years!

Hofbrau is an excellent local restaurant with a pub-style bar. Their pizza and wings are the specialty and are outstanding.

The pizza and chicken wings were excellent. The calzone was average. The server was very friendly and efficient despite being busy. My only negative was the seating. The booths were very uncomfortable and my neck and back were very sore by the end of dinner.

Talked the place up to friends so they decided to play along and have a pie with my wife and I. They loved it as much as we did. I always go back for my favorite which is a pepperoni, sausage and anchovie pizza but this time I changed it up and went with the wings...mild. I'm a sis so... More

They don't have fries. Yes, you read that right. So don't think about getting a sandwich (which are amazing from here) with fries. That being said, their pizza is phenomenal and always good. BUt they can be pricey
