Nice atmosphere with traditional Bavarian live music. Indoor beerhall is very well setup, the Biergarten is a must when weather permits. Food is good. Beer selection is limited to 3-4 style (just like in Munich).
This is a must go to in Vegas! As soon as you walk through the second set of doors, You are in the original Hoffbrauhaus . From the paintings on the ceiling (you know what I mean!) to the beer pouring station. It reminded me so much of my short visit to Munich. We ate and drank and sang with the Umpah band for so long we forgot to check out Monte Cristo Brew Pub. Oh Well. p.s. try the dunkel. Prost.
You do not go the the Hofbrauhaus because of beer, they only have four to chose from, you go here to have a fun time with friends in a rowdy setting where you are encouraged to get on the furniture. We went with some German friends and they thought it was great as well. I fun time will be had, unless you are a stick in the mud.
it was a bit pricey ($15 a liter) the food is good, but tastes like any other hofbrau haus i have been to. the selection of beer is standard german beers

Updated Rating:Visited for a second time, this time on a Friday evening during dinner. Place was pretty full and rocking with a live band. It was definitely a fun time, and I think itís worth a visit if you are in Vegas. But still pretty overpriced, and doesnít match the original Hofbrauhaus location.
Previous Rating:Off-shoot of the Hofbrauhaus, kind of cool atmosphere. It was dead when we visited, but we went on a Sunday afternoon so it kind of makes sense. The beer and the food were really overpriced. If you are in Vegas, this really isnít worth the trip off the Strip.
Overpriced and somewhat poor rip off of the actual Hofbrauhaus. They only have four beers available which isnít surprising but at $15/liter, it is overpriced. The atmosphere is somewhat like the actual location but the killer for me was that the house brass band wasnít playing polka- they instead played YMCA and Sweet Caroline. Very disappointing.
(Visited 09/2005): Hofbršuhaus is located near the Paradise/Flamingo intersection (not too far from the Hard Rock). Thankfully there is a free parking lot in back. The building is huge and impossible to miss. Big and white with a marquee out front (celebrity guest tapping for Oktoberfest by none other than Siegfried!).
Inside the space is just as big, with high ceilings and long benches that encourage dining with strangers. However lunch on a Wednesday was pretty sparse. There is a small gift shop and a stage area for the German/Bavarian bands to play.
The beer selection is regrettably small. Only 3-4 beers are available - Weiss, Dunkel and Original, plus a seasonal (Oktoberfest) and are served in 3 different sizes. However all are pretty good.
The service here was good which should be expected on a slow lunch hour. The server was kind and made good food/beer recommendations.
Great bratwurst lunch with a good Dunkel which is my litmus test for a German restaurant, even one as touristy as this.
Overall this is a nice place to go kind of off the beaten path of the typical Las Vegas restaurant.

Fun place to go during the convention. 4 beers available, including the Maibock recenctly. The Hefeweizen was well done and the food was good. Iím not familiar with German food but this was all tasty and everyone enjoyed their meals. Not a true beer destination but a fun place to go to once or twice a year. Good service and a fun band and dancing to boot!! The bathroom attendent was a bit weird though....I donít need to be handed a paper towel to dry my hands...
The feeling you get when you walk in this place on a weekend when the band is there couldnít be better. A huge hall, tons of people, an exciting band. Fantastic. If I could score it higher in this category I would. Of course, with all the people running around, it is sometimes difficult to get the attention of your waitress (all dressed in traditional garb) to get refills. The food selection is excellent but there are only 3-4 beers. The food is also great. The low overall score in relation to the praise I give is simply because of the prices. The beers are grossly overpriced (approx. 6-7 per 0.5 liter) and nothing else in cheap either. To get sufficiently buzzed with a date and eat well, expect to put down somewhere around $140.
