The Hofbräuhaus Restaurant Las Vegas serves traditional meals similar to those served in the original Hofbräuhaus Restaurant in Munich, Germany, the 16th century.
|This is different from the other restaurants because Hofbräuhaus continues German customs and traditions.
The friendly atmosphere allows guests to relax and have fun. Dining is picnic-style with long tables and pull out benches.
The band plays on a high stage in the Beer Hall where everyone has a view and the Beer Garden room is decorated with trees to appear as though it is outside.
Stein-holding returns every Friday and Saturday until October 26. They host two competitions each night and two winners will take home a six-pack of their limited Oktoberfest bier. Each winner will be in the running to win a dinner for up to ten at the Hofbräuhaus Restaurant.
The menu includes starters, Bavarian snacks, salads, burgers, yes burgers, sandwiches, classic Bavarian sausage specialties, fish,
These are Bavarian specialties prepared by excellent German Chefs.
Hofbräuhaus offers one of the most extensive selections of authentic German cuisine.
The Appetizer Tower and Sausage Tower are attractive three-tier Lazy Susan filled a feast of food that serves four.
You don’t usually see a pretzel as an appetizer on the menu but their pretzel is big and nearly covers the plate. It’s a giant pretzel ready to be eaten with Obatzda cheese, sweet mustard and onion mustard or try all of them. This pretzel is soft and easy to pull to your desired size piece.
They serve brie, cream cheese, butter and onion with the pretzel.
Each fresh-baked pretzel can be shared by four or one hungry person.
How is a German-style burger cooked? The burger is mixed with pork and beef, a touch of special seasoning, then served on a Kaiser roll. You can also add bacon, Swiss or American cheese.
If you are not familiar with German cuisine, try the Hofbräuhaus combination platters. You can taste the smoked pork loin, pork roast and smoked sausage with dark beer sauce on a platter.
Or the classic Bavarian sausage (Wurst) specialty platter including Vienna style frankfurter, pork and chicken sausages with imported sauerkraut.
The pork loin, served with creamy pepper sauce, and the 10 ounce King Ludwig pepper steak, topped with creamy green pepper-brandy sauce, are both for big appetites.
The Hofbräuhaus Restaurant Las Vegas is at 4510 Paradise Road, across from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. For information about the guest hosts or the restaurant, call (702)-853-BEER (2337).
