In town for a conference, I checked Beerfly and found out this place was nearby. After walking to the Disney-fied Newport-on-the-Levee area, I found the friendly Hofbrau logo on the corner. The place is pretty big - large picnic-style tables inside, a bar, and probably about 25 picnic tables outside in the biergarden. Sat down outside and was promptly served by a pretty young lady with an unfortunately bad midwest accent (you know, a "y" sound before all vowels).
The seasonal schwarzbier was out, so I was limited to the four regular offerings. I tried all but the light beer, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Food is decent, although very meat-centric. My vegetarian self was limited to a gardenburger and potato pancakes. Decent, but nothing special.
I was here in the early evening, so I didn't get the obnoxious frat crowd that others have complained about. I can see how it could get that way later, though. Go before 8pm and you probably will escape any crowds.

Reasonably authentic German beer house, right by the touristy levee area in Newport. Large, open dining area with community tables. Some bar rail seating, which is where we sat.

The German style beers were nicely done, and served in full or 1/2 liter mugs. In my opinion they were not fantastic, but certainly well worth drinking. They have a can filling station for to go consumption, but they seemed a bit pricey.

The food menu was fairly large, we just split a appetizer sampler plate which was huge , consisting of sauerkraut balls, potato pancakes, fried pickles etc. It was more than enough for two at a reasonable price.

Would return.

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!
