excellent place for a good night of German food and good beer. They established a new beer, the Hofbrau Hallodri, which was excellent!

I would definitely return, as the food, service, and atmosphere were absolutely awesome!

Not necessarily the place to go if you're on a tight budget, but the price for the portion size is awesome! We almost always bring home leftovers!

A great "German beer garden" that I frequented when visiting my friends in Cincinnati. Small number of taps, but all the typical German beer styles. The hefeweizen and the dunkel were top notch, and served in the big German glasses like you'd expect. The food is typical but delicious German fare. The service is good, and the beer girls are very friendly, and very nice to look at, ha.

Reasonable prices, but that's to be expected when the beer lacks flavor (completely unremarkable) and is served in mugs that are still hot from the dishwasher. I had the Dunkel which was okay, but not one of the better dunkels I've had. The premium lager tasted like what you'd expect a "premium" lager to taste like. All of this beer seems like what BMC people drink when they want to brag that they like good beer. Food is like a German version of Applebee's. Lots of cute girls as servers, which is fun, but doesn't overcome the fact that there are only four beers and the food tastes like it was microwaved. You can do a lot better across the river.

Building is really nice though.

Hofbrauhaus was a great place to go during my trip to Cincinnati. When we went up there, we went to a Reds game, enjoyed Taste of Cincinnati, then headed over to Hofbrauhaus for a beer or two...we ended up staying there the rest of the night! Between liter beers and never ending cornhole tournaments, on top of live music, this was the place to be in Newport, KY. The only downside I really remember was having to go back inside to get a beer myself everytime. If there were a few more waitresses tended to the folks who where outside just hanging out, it would have been perfect.

I used to live near Newport and frequented this place when I was in college. As other reviewers have noted, the interior looks just like a Bavarian beer hall. The service is always good, at least in my experience. Most of the beers are solid (though there are a few one may want to avoid), and most of the major German ale and lager styles are represented. The food is good, if you like vaguely German cuisine, but the portions tend to be enormous. Overall, Hofbrauhaus Newport is a great place to grab a couple of beers and a meal.
