A welcome sight after what seemed like an endless journey of a hike from the Strip. It’s what you’d expect: a large beer hall, traditonal seating and decoration, a bar area, even a gift shop. Yes, liters are $11, and there’s not a great selection, but what did you expect? Middle of the road German lager from huge glasses in Vegas = money pit. Enjoy.
The feeling you get when you walk in this place on a weekend when the band is there couldn’t 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.
I had high hopes for this place. I spent 3 years in Munich Germany in the early 1960s and have visited the Hofbrauhaus many times. My memroies are treasures and I was hoping to find a few treasures at the Las Vegas Hofbrauhaus. All I can say, is that the experience, both times, that I’ve been there are only memorable because I didn’t enjoy the place at all. The service is poor and the food is disappointing and expensive. The beer is okay but not what I remembered it to be. I’d pass on this place and go to the cafe Hidelberg instead!

Grossly overrated. I’ve been there twice and have been disappointed both times. Rude servers, adequate but overpriced food, good but very overpriced beer. I can get a six pack of their beer at a local gas station for less than the cost of a mug at the restaurant. Yes, I’d rather have the same beer on tap than in a bottle any day, but not at these prices. There are much better places to eat and drink at in Vegas, so don’t waste your time or money here.
Big beer hall that gets loud. Service good quick. Only few beers to choose from. Food good, but a little bland. Nothing wrong just didn’t inspire me

I have been here several time because i am a local. I wouldnt say its as bad as many of the rates suggest. decent bavarian food and hofbrau beer. with some seasonal beers once in a while. the german band changes approx every other month and when the place is lively can be quite fun. dont go here to hava quiet meal. overpriced for sure.
