Every time I go to the Hofbrauhaus in Pittsburgh, I'm cool with it. Its not amazing, but its good. The bang for the buck is there (even though we didn't buy last night, thanks to a great friend).
We went for a boat ride - a boat ride with grownups only. There are plenty of spots to tie up, but then you've got to walk into the city to get where you want to be. SouthSide Works was our go-to last night because of the new marina there. We tied up, hopped out, and were sitting at a table at Hofbrauhaus within 5 minutes. Chose to sit outside because the weather was phenomenal.
~ Use the No-Wait app
~ Sit outside if the weather is good, it gets so loud inside. Pick inside if its winter and you want to be in the middle of the chaos (ie. you're there to drink beer)
~ Get the smaller beer, the big beer glass is wicked heavy
~ They have a Gluten Free & a Kid's menu
And do eat? I'm a big fan of the Works Sampler to get started. Its a little bit of everything that you probably want to try. I like schnitzel, so I prefer the Bauern Schnitzel - put beer cheese & ham on it, all good. IPA-hole went with Wurstplatte. I was hoping someone would get the weiner art. No one did.
I didn't take any pictures, so that's it.
