vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 3 | selection: 3 | food: 1 | $$

Nice atmosphere, nice location, quality beers for reasonable prices, but the service is mediocre and the food is flat out awful. The building is gorgeous, and still looks almost brand new, with big copper brewing tanks over the bar, huge main hall, smaller dining room, and a biergarten with a great view of the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati. The beers are pretty solid, I thought the Premium Lager was nasty cat-pee skunk sauce, but the dunkel and the hefe were both good.

The food, however, is the kind of hideous thrown-together cafeteria food similar to Olive Garden or Applebees. The demi-glaze (German demi-glaze = contradiction in terms...) was made from bullion cubes, the sauerkraut was rubbery and bland, the wienershnitzel was over-fried and super greasy, and for some reason it came with steamed veggies (a German staple /sarcasm). We actually sent one entree back because it was completely inedible. If you must eat stick to the wurst and pretzels. I can't believe anyone is taken in by this place, my great-grandfather (whose name was Herzog) was an immigrant from Munich, and my family has always cooked and enjoyed German food. If you want real German food in Cincinnati, check out Mecklenburg Gardens in Clifton, because the Hofbrauhaus is about as authentic as triple-hop brewing.

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.
