Wanted to wait for the "grand opening" but I was in the area and this place was JUMPING!
Atmosphere was very cool. European (German) style setting with benches taking up the beer hall, with a few tables on either side. Also it was a beautiful day, and there was plenty of outdoor seating. The place was packed to the gills but though the bar was full, there was a place to order a beer and drink as you wait for a table.
Quality was good, 4 trademark hofbrau beers all on tap, no seasonals yet. Though Ive never been to Germany, it felt like I was already there.
Service was pretty decent, given the volume of the place. I was just surprised I wasn't forgotten in the sea of people.
Selection was good, a dunkle, hefeweizen, light, and lager were all there, I was looking for something new but I was told they hadn't brewed it yet. No bother, I was toasting to the friendly german musician on stage, PROST!
The food was pretty good, a large menu but the food we ordered came rather quickly and the service was ok, given the volume of the place and it just opened.
Value, pretty good. Its a fun place to go for a few rounds and some food. Everything there was very traditional and I would reccommend this place to anyone who wants to go out and have a good time in the South Side Works.
