Two words: tourist trap. My husband and I decided to visit Hofbrauhaus for Oktoberfest- we've lived here over a year and always wanted to try it anyway, and what better time to do it than Oktoberfest, right? Well... the atmosphere was

I've been to the original Hofbrauhaus in Munich twice. This place was not an exact replica, but it was very similar. The schnitzel was great and the beer was excellent. The staff seemed to be a little more like LV than Munich, but they were friendly. The band did a great job.
I don't agree with the people who complained about it. I had a very postive experience there.

Pros: Good quality, large portions

Cons: a little expensive

My great grandparents were from Germany and I have traveled in Germany. I love geraman food, beer and traditions. This ain't it.

This place is exactly like a college frat house, without a clue, that decided to put on a ??German? party one weekend. Just awful, not German food, not prepared as German food and the band was real loud to make up for just being terrible. Easily the worst restaurant we encountered during our 10-day stay in Las Vegas.

Cons: Bad food, poor service and LOUD

If you are looking for German food; this is not it. The Hofbruhaus Platte was so tough I could not even cut it. If you like your instant potatoes mushed then you will love these. The dessest special was overpriced and bland. All in all save your money, this place is just poor.

I suppose if you drank enough beer or shots of Schnapps the food would not matter; however, we were looking for authentic German food. We ordered the Jaegerschnitzel with mashed potatoes instead of spaetzel. The pork was tougher than the bottom of any boot. Being the driver, I ordered iced tea, which was not freshly brewed but rather that horrible out-of-the-box syrup junk! The side of red cabbage I ordered was bland. The apricot strudel was limp and doughy - it's supposed to be crisp! What a huge disappointment. If you have ever been to Germany, you will hate this place. If you have never been to Germany and you are drunk enough, you will have a good time and either will not remember the food or will assume Germany food is bland and lifeless...what a shame

Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas brings to this dry desert town a bit of Bavaria, and an all year feeling of an Oktoberfest evening. The food is traditional German offerings such as Sauerbraten, and Schweinebraten, and a good variety of German Wursts. The beer is traditional, and comes in medium, large, and extra large. There are no 'small' glasses of beer. There is also a wine list that includes typical German wines, as well as other global offerings. But the German wine offering is indeed limited. The restaurant atmosphere is electric at night with a German Oompa band playing a mix of traditional German drinking songs, and also modern American music on their own or by request. The waitresses dress in traditional Oktoberfest attire and will paddle (for fun) on request any diner who orders a shot of Schnapps, just like in the old country. The main dining hall consists of wooden tables and bench seats which you can stand and dance on... and there is Bier Garten room with a painted ceiling to give the ambiance of the outdoor late afternoon venues of small German towns. Overall a fun experience. Food portions are on the medium scale, not small, but not overfilling, so you will have room for appetizers, main course, and dessert. Be sure to try the Apfelstrudel or the Black Forest Cake.

As a frequent business traveler to Munich, I thought I would see if the Las Vegas version of a Munich beer hall would serve up anything close to what I find in Germany. I was in Vegas for business.

I entered this large hall with murals on the ceiling and long tables with few diners/drinkers. In the front was an umm-pah-pah band decked out in their Lederhosen. The noise that emanated from this group was hard on the ears -out of tune and out of sequence. It would have been better for them to put a CD on the loudspeakers.

While I don't normally visit the Hofbrauhaus in Munich (It's a tourist trap filled with busloads of Japanese), I know their menu. A Bavarian classic, roasted pig knuckle (Schweinshaxe) is a staple of the area. It was disappointing not to find it on the menu. I chose an eclectic combination of appetizers instead of a main meal: Obatsda (cheese concoction served with raw onion and pretzel) and the famous Munchener Weisswurst, a white veal-based sausage found in Bavaria for breakfast. The obatsda tasted close to authentic though the pretzel was stale. The weisswurst was a tasteless joke, especially for the $14 price tag. Normally this can be found in the restaurants and cafes for under $5.

But the real measure of a beer hall that calls itself authentic Bavarian is the beer. My favorite beer in all the world is Bavarian Helles (Hell=bright). This is a lager style beer and in Bavaria it is as smooth as mothers milk.. I ordered a Halbe (500ml) and to my udder (sic) disappointment, it tasted more like an English lager, highly hoppy and slightly bitter.

My bill for this simple fare of 2 appetizers and a beer with tip was almost $40. This is outrageous, especially given that the food and beer was less than authentic. I can only surmise that the reviews on this site are influenced by the alcohol.

If you want real Bavarian fare, the Rathausekeller or Haxnbauer in Munich or any of dozens of breweries in Bavaria will bring you pure pleasure.

We hit up the Hofbrauhaus on a guy's trip out to Vegas. You'd have to try hard to have a bad time here. The beer girls make sure your stein is never empty. Gotta love the chicken dance, too!

I visited the Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas and had a blast. Joining me was about 10 friends and had a great server her name was Bekah and she made it a great experience .She spanked a couple of guys in my party and made it fun for all of us. The beer and food was great and so was the band. For all the people who says it wasn?t good sorry but I will never forget my experience at the Hofbrauhaus.

I have been to more than one hofbrauhaus in Germany, and I found this restaurant to be quite authentic in its architecture and design. The food is delicious, and I don't know what one reviewer is talking about--they most definitely have sauerbraten on the menu because I ordered it, and it was great! The beers are equally good, as are the Bavarian pretzels (get a variety of dipping sauces). The live music is fantastic, if a little loud. Yes, there are a few inauthenticities about the place (such as the "shot girls" and the hot waitdresses--the waitresses in Germany are much heftier and can carry eight giant beer steins at a time), but you'll be having such a great time you won't give a hoot.

I lived in Germany. This is not it, or even close to the atmosphere of a good beer hall. Thought I would take the family to share some heritage, but don't bring your family either. I understand it's 'vegas', but the blond bimbo (not a waitress) offered my wife & kids shots (this was about 5pm). We were elbowed constantly by the drunk, smoking bikers behind us on the bench. The bimbo then hauled out the paddle and wanted to use OUR table to spank the naughty drunk biker behind us in front of my kids. Disappointing food, too. Nobody working there seemed to care much.

I've never been to Germany so I can't comment on the authenticity of this place. All I know is that I went there with a group of friends and we had a blast in the beer hall. It was loud with people cheering and singing and holding 1 liter steins of beer. The food was pretty decent, mainly German fare and the prices are about what you can expect in Las Vegas.

There are two areas to dine, the beer hall and the beer garden. If you want the Oktoberfest atmosphere with a bunch of loud tables, make reservations for the beer hall. The time I went, we wanted to sit in the beer hall but all the tables were booked so we ate in the indoor beer garden and then went to the beer hall after dinner when the tables freed up. The beer garden is really cool since it is designed to look like an outdoor venue with the whole painted sky effect.

If you want to do something else aside from gambling or clubbing and looking for a different dining experience, check out the Hofbrauhaus.

The Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas was the biggest dissapointment of my Las Vegas trip. Having been stationed in Germany during my tour in the military, I experienced the finest in German dining, both in restaurants an in private homes. Since my return to the US, I have rarely found any German restaurant that measures up in quality and authenticity to those in Germany. I was eager to try The Hofbrauhaus after seeing it featured on a travel show. Thus, while in Las Vegas recently, I made it a special point to visit.

I arrived during the lunch period. I found the menu selections to be lacking several of the more notible German dishes. Where was the Rouladin, or Saurbraten? I didn't see Jagersnitzel. There were only three choices of HB beer on the menu: dunkel (dark), heffeweisen, and Original. My particular favorite is Spaten Lager. Although the waitresses were very pleasant, they seemed somewhat uninformed. I order the Wiener snitzel, I asked the waitress if they had Spaten Lager beer. I would have been satisfied if she had merely told me that they didn't serve Spaten. Instead, she brought some concoction made with beer and 7-up. You can imagine my surprise when I took a big gulp. I called her back to the table a asked her what the H*** is this stuff? She tried to explain that it was "very popular in Germany." No self-respecting German I ever met would be caught dead drinking 7-up in his beer.

I informed her that it was totally unacceptable and I asked her for an HB Original instead. The waitress took back the 7-up/beer and brought me something more recognizable. On three different occasions during our meal, the waitress asked my wife if she would like to have the 7-up/beer that I rejected. The waitreess even went so far as to imply that the the cost would be deducted from her salery if we didn't buy it. I found it a little difficult to enjoy my meal while the waitress was trying to make us feel guilty.

By the way, the snitzel was so-so.

Pros: food and music great, pick you up at certain hotels

Cons: little pricey for portions of food, and limited parking

.

This place is a ton of fun. It has zero attitude and plenty of beer, dancing, fun and did I mention beer? The contests and chicken dancing are very cute, and it is fun meeting some of the other people there. Got my husband a fun alpine boy grilling apron as a souveneir. I want to open my own in LA.

This place is the best. I have visited the Orginal Hofbrauhaus Munich and it is EXACTLY the SAME!! It was like the old days of being back in Bavaria! The gingerbread strudel is to die for!! We had the Pretzel and "Obatzer" followed by a Schnitzel Sandwhich ooh so good! The band is great especially if you like doing the "Chicken Dance" a fun time was had by all. They definetly live up to their reputation of more than brats and beer fun!! I will definetly be returning!!

They only thing I would agree with the other reviewer is how loud the band was. Other than not being able to hear what the person sitting across the table was saying I had a great time. The food was absolulty amazing. Some of the best food I've ever ate. Take the time to go off the strip & eat here!!!

Excitedly telling the wife how fun the true Hofbrauhaus was in Germany we made our way into the Vegas Hofbrauhaus to enjoy a full night of song, beer, laughter, and interaction with other guests. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out that way. The sad fact is, the Vegas Hofbrauhaus staff only tolerates very miminal hootin and hollerin during its house bands performance. After the music stops ITS SHHHH! Also, the wife and I had just finished our 2nd liter and joined a rowdy table of people who were wanting to share in the same kind of festive mood as we did when the Hofbrauhaus management in a stern manner asked the whole table to kindly leave. Folks, if your wanting to revisit the Good Ole days in Germany when Oktoberfest cranks up and Hofbrauhaus is flowing with People, Beer, and Song I don't recommend the Vegas Hofbrauhaus its a poor replication.

I ordered the jagersnitchel and it was ok, and the live band was enjoyable, but a little loud to have conversation over. The spatzle wasn't good and parking was very difficult.

The restaurant uses bench style seating where people are seated back-to-back on the same bench. Besides the benches creating a crowded seating arrangement, in some intances smokers may be seated on the same bench with non-smokers-- Literally Sitting Back-to-Back!!

My entire non-smoking party was very unhappy with the arrangement. When smokers sat down with us, we rushed our meals and left because management was not very helpful in resolving the issue. In the end, the food wouldn't be worth a return visit if the whole restuarant were smoke free.
