I visit Morro Bay once or twice a year and Hofbrau is often my first stop for food. That french dip sandwich is carved right in front of you and they aren't making tiny portions. Great food, great people, wonderful view. Always worth the visit.

Just by chance we stopped in the Hofbrau for dinner and I am really happy we did! The food is excellent and you are right on the water!

Haven’t been here in a few years. Hasn’t changed. Same atmosphere and food. I like their food and a cold beer adds to it.

Love this place. Nice little hidden spot.The roast beef and pastrami sandwiches are the best!!! Must try!! Food is always great and comes out quick. The auju is so good to dip your sandwich it. Perfect outdoor viewing of the rock and the beach.
