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.

This was a lot of fun. The beer is delicious and super fresh. Amazing atmosphere that is sure to make you smile. Live music and a very friendly wait staff that is quick and efficient. The beer is very reasonably priced and the food is great. The food is a tad pricey but its worth it. Overall amazing experience and it will not be the last time i visit!

This is an absolute experience. Pittsburgh is filled with little authentic ethnic bars and restaurants, and that is great. This place is a larger than life, authentic reproduction of the original beer hall!
The food is always good, and the beer is obviously fresh. The place has something to offer everyone. They are open for lunch, they have a great kids menu, and they have special keg tapping events monthly for the new beer selection.
There is just the right amount of noise and fun, without being overwhelming and ruining you conversation. Live music is always a great touch, and they have special events that are great, such as Oktoberfest and the St Nick party n December.
You have to go there with the right expectation and you will love it. Good German style food, good beer, nice servers, fun atmosphere. There really isn't much not to like. Fun place!
