I have been to the Hofbrauhaus in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania several times … and I had the pleasure of visiting once again yesterday for lunch with friends.
South Central Pennsylvania has an abundance of “Pennsylvania Dutch” (Amish-influenced cuisine); but there are few options for authentic Bavarian food. The Hofbrauhaus is one of them. Their menu features an assortment of traditional German dishes and a large variety of beer and wine selections.
The Hofbrauhaus was established in 1958 — and the design and decor echoes that time period. The age-mellowed paneling, along with German knickknacks, art, and furnishings almost make you feel like you’ve stepped through a time machine. No boring muzak at the Hofbrauhaus – you’ll enjoy German music (at a tasteful volume) and the waitresses even wear traditional dirndl dresses!
I didn’t have time to run into the lounge for additonal pics … I’ll add those after my next trip!
