Best time to visit is when the reds are not in town because otherwise parking is $5. Nice terrace with view over Cincinnatti downtown. Beer selection is limited but the seasonal black beer ( Schwarzbier) was excellent. The food is reasonable but the smoking was a negative. The german music in the main hall was not our taste.

This place... I have stopped here maybe a dozen times throughout the last 4 years. Usually Cincinnatians gather here on weekends to get a little silly and have giant liter-sized mugs and get weird out in the biergarden after their 9-5s. A great place to gather, have fun, and meet up with old friends I grew up with... That’s 90% of my experience here, someone I haven’t spoken to in a year tells me to get my ass down to hofbrauhaus and I do. Usually it’s loud and rowdy on weekends, not my style, but usually a fun time and a very unique experience ... There’s a type of person that loves that kind of thing, but it’s not me. I’m here now at 6pm on a rainy monday to try their new IPL though, and it’s much more chill. Music is totally german biergarden style, but it’s at a reasonable volume today (though it can get loud on weekends when they bring in live bands). Bar is not packed at the moment, I’m here in relative peace. One thing that always wins at Hofbrau Newport is the beer. Yes, it’s brewed on-site and it’s much better than even the Hofbrau Munich bottles are. Always fresh and delicious, unless you order the Light beer. That one is fresh but not delicious. 5 taps at any time, 4 flagships and 1 rotating seasonal. I came here today to try the brand-new IPL and it rocked my socks off. Portions are a half-liter or a liter. No pansy snifters here. Selection is limited but what’s on tap is very good for the most part. These mugs are built for clinking. Bartenders and waitresses wear classic german outfits, which is fun. They’re used to local assholes though, I don’t blame them for their brevity. Overall, I don’t mind stopping by here to meet up with old friends and to try new seasonals whenever they become available. My half-way beer geek friends have already grown tired of it, though, they wouldn’t even meet me here to try the IPL again with me. They "could only take so much german music" was the excuse I got.

Has a authentic German feel to the place. Wide selection of German foods - all the dishes we have were excellent. Beers obviously all German styles but maintain the same quality as they have in Germany. I was pleased and will return.

Place is a big beer hall, with loud polka music, and nice German Style decor. Parking is a little difficult and will run around $5. My biggest beef with this place was the amount of smoke (I didn’t know you could smoke at inside restaurants still). Busy for a Saturday.

This place is a traditional German beer hall. Big outdoor seating area and communal seating.the beers are all German styles and are solid examples. You won’t find much ground breaking brewing, but thats not what beer hall beer is for. This is a very fun place with good German food and beer.

This place is solid all the way around. Nothing stands out as spectacular, but it’s good, food, good beer, good service, and a good atmosphere. A good place to go with groups too.

Its a fun atmosphere, with decent ger.man food. They have a limited selection of beer, but they are traditional german beer. The music is good, buts its polka

Finding this place was a bit tough as it wasn’t where the GPS said it would be. Finding a place to sit down inside was just as tough as it was packed late on a Friday night. Luckily a nice couple gave up their spots at the bar for us so we were able to eat and sit, which was nice after walking close to 30 miles the last two days. The place reminds me of every other German style brewpub/restaurant I’ve been to. Large, wooden, festive, german garb worn by all and large pints of lager with nary a hop in sight. The food was good, the beer was okay and the service was great. As a personal aside, I hate valet parking and it’s the only option here. I can park my own vehicle and don’t want anyone else in it. Perhaps it’s a way to get people from parking in their lot and heading elsewhere.
