5 or 6 Hofbrau beers to choose from in a long narrow bar with some communal tables in back and a long bar up front. Nice lunch special on a Monday (free sausage with any drink). Limited menu for lunch, but tasty German basics. Nothing amazing but a friendly relaxed place to drink some german beers and while a little kitschy feeling I’m sure you could have a blast putting down liters with the crowd on the weekends.

Quite Sunday afternoon visit, only couple patrons yet we were hardly noticed and forgotten about a few times, but definitely friendly and helpful. In relative to the type of place a very nice food menu. Beer menu as stated in previous reviews. Essen Haus in Madison is a better stop.

Standard issue hofbrau house. But at this place, they have hammerschlagen. Trust me, hammers and nails and beer go together quite well.

Hope you like Hofbrau beers and folks who like to drink too much. Love the idea but it’s more of a tourist attraction than anything.

A classic haufbrau themed German beer hall. Step into "Munich" and enjoy some of the tastiest beer in the world

The name says exactly what you get. Hofbrau beer, great German food, and a feeling like you’re in Germany. Get you friends together to drink from the shotski or pound some nails into a log. Be forewarned; that beer will sneak up on you!

Stopped by late night Saturday after a Marquette game. This place was absolutely jammed, and seemed designed really poorly to accommodate the crowd. It’s basically just a room of picnic tables and a long narrow hallway. The tables were well full, so we were pushed up against the wall. As stated, this is a Hofbrau Haus - focus mostly on their beers. I think this would be a fun place on a quieter day - not really fun at all when packed. Others mentioned outdoor seating, perhaps the key is a summer visit.
58 = ★½ (Local place tickers only)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Great liters of fresh imported Hofbrau beers. There’s shotskis for people wanting to get loaded on booze, boots of beer, live music occasionally, picnic table style seating in addition to the bar stools, a giant log in which to pound nails into, and typical imported German liquors. The 3 bratwurst chili is fantastic.

This place maybe some of the most fun in Milwaukee. If you had a large group of friends who were even remotely interested in beer, this would be the place to take them. Very good selection of German beers and full selection of Hofbrau as its affiliated with them. Verycool outdoor seating in the back and The Milwaukee Brat House is right next door if you get hungry.
