During our trip with Visit Pittsburgh, we got to enjoy several restaurants in the area. Our first evening, we visited Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh. I was familiar with Hofbräuhaus because we have the first location that came to the United States close to where I live in Newport, Kentucky near Cincinnati. I knew I could expect great food, beer, and a fun atmosphere.
Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh is Pennsylvania’s first authentic Hofbräuhaus, modeled after the legendary 400+ year-old Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany.
There is plenty of room to bring a large group or to meet a lot of new friends.
The outside seating area offers great views of the river. The restaurant is on the former site of a steel mill.
During your visit you can enjoy the sounds of polka and maybe even get serenaded by an accordion.
The menu offers traditional Bavarian dishes that the whole family will enjoy.
Giant pretzels, sauerkraut balls, deep fried pickles and potato pancakes are an appetizer must!
Come hungry because the portions are large and the food is very filling.
And of course the main attraction, beer. If you love beer, you will LOVE the size of their steins!
There are four all year round varieties and seasonal beers as well that are the original recipes from over 400 years ago by the Duke of Bavaria.
We really enjoyed our visit to Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh. You can learn more about them on their website.
After your meal, you might want to swing by the Town Square at Southside Works. It’s a great shopping complex with popular stores that are within walking distance from Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh that also has a fountain for kids to run through.
