House-brewed beer, hearty German fare & staff in traditional garb in sprawling indoor/outdoor space.- Google
"Try the Kasse Spatzle -- pasta dumplings in a cheese sauce with bacon."
"I don't normally get dessert, but the waiter recommended the cream puff."

My family used to frequent twice a year. Never again. We entered the door on a slow day. One server was cleaning. No other workers were around. 2 people at the bar - smoking and drinking beer. A couple sat near the podium at the entrance and were smoking while eating. We do not like the smoke, so we went into the side room. The male worker acknowledged that we were going back to sit at a table - self seating, you understand. We sat 10 minutes. No one came. The male worker peeked in and disappeared. We began to walk out. A female worker SHOUTED from behind "Can I help you?" I said, throwing my hands in the air, "We are hungry and none of you want our business." She SHOUTS (as if I were deaf), "That room is closed." Understand, nothing stated this, the male employee said nothing, and the door to this room could have been closed making it apparent. I shouted back, "I am not sitting where everyone is smoking with my children, so I guess non-smoking patrons are NOT welcomed into this Hofbrau Haus!" I nearly gave her the finger. Even the HB in Berlin understands what a valued customer is. You should see how well the workers treat you there and the types of food they do not serve in the USA.

Great place, one of my favorite places in the Newport, Northern KY area. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful and friendly. I love the classic German Biergarten look of this place. It really makes you think you are in an old german Biergarten. Though I have not been the Oktoberfest but it is supposed to a great event.

Ordered the jaeger schnitzel and it was bad. undercooked pork. The hefeweizen I ordered was flat, zero carbonation and about 70 degrees close to room temperature. I complained and was brow beaten and patronized by a very rude manager. I was in Germany and went to many a gasthaus. Newport is not even vaguely close to those great experiences. What a big letdown and a great disappointment.

I live in Indianapolis so it is about a 2 hour drive to the Hofbrauhaus. We make it over a couple times per year. I always like coming here. The beer is excellent, but a little pricy. The food is good too. And it is much better now that they are no smoking. Parking is a bit of a challenge and it is kind of a rip off that they charge $5 to park on Friday and Saturday.

There are only so many places that offers good German cuisine and this is one of them. Most of the seating is long tables which can result in sitting next to a complete stranger but that can be some of the fun. The staff is always great and they have a live band on occasions playing German music. This place makes a great stop before a Reds game, just sit in the beer garden and have a liter of Dunkel.

I this is place is nice, but just never in my top recommendations of telling people where to hang out in the city. The food is pretty good, the beer has a good variety, but I'm never thrilled after I leave here. Worth checking out, but there are other places I would recommend.

Went this past Friday the 12th for my birthday with another couple. My wife picked this restaurant because she was told when she called that they were starting their celebration for the Oktoberfest on Friday and a lot would be going on. Upon arriving I got excited at the front door with the music playing and getting me in the mood for a great dinner and music. Upon entering, no music was playing and the server kept telling us they would be playing any minute which they never did. I went to the men's restroom and was delighted to hear German music playing loudly inside. For a brief moment, I actually considered sitting in their and drinking my beer so I could listen to music on my birthday. Piped in German music would have worked as well, but instead I felt like I was sitting in an auditorium or gym at school. I have been to Germany's hofbrauhaus and try to relive those times. However, it is not meant to be. And to think my wife wanted me to just leave and go to Dick's across the street, at least they have entertainment. Sorry, won't be back. My wife reminds me that this happened last time we were their too. Food was good, atmosphere sucked. thanks !
