Hofbräuhaus Cleveland – VERY FUN and Delicious Food and Beverages


The Hofbräuhaus was SO MUCH FUN! And clearly I wasn’t the only person who thought so because when we got there at 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday the line was out the door and they told us it would be an hour wait. We had heard that it would be a long wait and were prepared to wait. I don’t understand how it can get so crowded when it’s such a big place! Fortunately they have tents to shelter you from the cold and beer stations in the tents as you wait. But even better, my husband snuck in and was able to find a couple of people who were leaving at the bar and grabbed their seats.

We went with two other couples and it’s definitely a place to go with a group so you can share food and have fun together. There were a lot of families there and it is a kid friendly place without even seeming like it would be. There was a live German band playing which added to the cultural experience and all of the staff wear German outfits, which is really cute!


I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned the food yet – it is SO DELISH!!!!!!!! We all ordered a bunch of appetizers to share including the sauerkraut balls, fried pickles and potato pancakes. Everything came out really fast and was really hot. I had the walleye dinner and would definitely order that again. My husband got the bratwurst and it looked very interesting floating in water, so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the brats, but that’s probably just the German way to serve them. And don’t forget about the ski shots where four people do a shot together on a ski – very fun!

You’ve gotta check this place out! It’s definitely worth the wait!
