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.

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!
