“Nice selection of beer & margaritas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

I would definitely agree with other reviews saying this is a great place to have drinks with friends. They have a very good selection of beer on tap and dosaritas with various options on flavor of margarita and a beer or alcohol kicker. The food isn't bad, although it isn't really German fair so don't go expecting to have anything authentic. I recommend the pecan crusted chicken or a burger. Both good for the price and the portions are large. My BF and I didn't have a chance to really do the happy hour/hanging out with friends thing, but if I lived and worked in SA within proximity to Hofbrau, I could see myself enjoying payday happy hour here. Patio would be very nice during the fall. If you're visiting, it's worth a trip.

“Mis-named Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

Only got a poor rating because we were expecting lots of German food. Unfortunately, when we visited there was just one or two. The wiener schnitzel was totally bland - and the "gravy" tasted canned. Other food did look good - just not a German place.

“Go for the beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

This restaurant would be one to go to with the intent to stay later and drink. The food is pretty good but nothing too special. I had the Snitzel and it was decent. The beer though is very good and they have some German drafts. I enjoyed the atmosphere and would go back to have a few drinks but probably not to eat. They did have the best fried pickles that rivaled if not beat out hooters. They are open very late (1-2 am throughout the week) which is a plus.

“Typical bar food, indifferent service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

The grilled asparagus was outstanding, everything else was decent but nothing special. Our server was more interested in flirting with a table full of young women, so our food was finally brought out by someone else, who wasn't exactly gracious about it. As bar food goes, it was okay, but I doubt if I'll be back. There are too many other restaurants to try out, and life is short!
