Made this a vacation must as we were doing the Newport acqarium later that afternoon.

Got to it about 2p.m. Plenty of free parking and no wait.

You walk in and the aroma hits you. Grains, yeast, kinda stable like. We were greeted by an older german guy, we talked abit about Octoberfests in our hometown area, very nice.

we were seated at one of the large wooden tables. Good atmosphere in front of the bar and cooper brewing kettle. The brewmaster was at work as its above the bar height, almost stage-like. Ok for entertainment for no music at our visit.

The beer was good, though they were out of the months special Bohemian Pils and the Dunkel. Both of which I wanted to try. Instead I had a liter of a back-up special offering, Zwickelbeer, an unfilter lager. It was offered by our pants sport'n waitress. It wasn't skirt time either, though she did show the kids her socks, very nice. She new her beer as well which was very cool.

The food was great. Good quality and good portion size. You can save some dough by ording from the second page sandwitch side, as we did.

Going at the off times are good if you have a kid or two. Only thing, you don't always get the full octoberfest feel. Even the old german greeter guy was gone leaving the gift shop unmaned. I wanted a glass but didn't go back in to track down my sock wear'n waitress. Oh well, next time, cause im go'en back!!

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.
