Came here for a morning drink and ended up staying for lunch. The place was packed and we had to go upstairs, through the kitchen and into a large back room that was almost full with people. By the time we ordered it was jam packed and i suppose they were turning people away. This made the atmostphere good, but the service bad. I felt bad for the lady. She was the only one assigned to our room annd she was running her ass off, it was still over an hour before we got our food. THe good news is that it gave us more time to enjoy the beer, which was darn good. I cant say much more, but i suppose this place would be great durring a less busy time. (651 characters)

I can't believe I forgot to review this place!!

Anyway...this place was within a five minute walk of our hotel room, which meant of course: check-in, throw bags in room, ask hotel clerk to point us the way, and away we go. We went here several times.

Lovely typical German bierhall, as in: dark wood everywhere. The front room seemed to be of locals primarily drinking. It also looked as though they had rooms upstairs. We went out back, which was more dining, family oriented. Of course that meant we got to walk past the bierman, pouring all those delicious biers!!

We were seated, knew to avoid the breadbaskets (thanks Longstaff!), and were given both German and English menus. I stuck with the German one, David used the English one. Beers were ordered, and Aventinus for David, a Donau Pils for me. The food was good, all your German favorites. The only thing I would have to say is that the waitress didn't appreciate me trying to order something different than was on the menu...David's sausage meal came with sauerkraut, but he wanted the rotkohl...on our first visit, I gave up trying to change the waitress' mind. Basically, they didn't think that the red cabbage 'went' with that meal he was ordering. By the time we had come in for the third or fourth time, I finally convinced them (auf deutsch), that while they had lovely tradiitons and dishes, all my husband wanted was an extra side of the red cabbage...and everything was fine.

Good food, excellent beer, fun with the waitress...what more could you want on a trip to Munich? Go, you won't be disapointed. pat (1,589 characters)

Showed up here before the dinner rush and was very pleased to see Aventinus on tap! Our server didn't know much English but tried very hard to help us, even if it involved bringing other more fluent servers over to help translate. It was fairly calm and laid back here and I liked it. A good place to eat before heading to the Hofbroihaus, just don't have too many Aventinuses! The menu was in all German from what I saw, so I saw the words "uber" and "aventinus" in one thing and pointed at that. It was really good! For dessert I tried an ice cream sorta of thing that comes in an Aventinus glass with Aventinus mixed in I believe. On top was a scattering of fresh fruit. It was okay at first then was hard to stomach by the end because of the beer. It's still neat to have Aventinus ice cream though, so I'd try it at least once!

I was very pleased to see they also had the Aventinus Eisbock. It's in a bottle but the cost here is still $.50 less than what I'd pay at a well priced local beer store. Overall I thought this place was very nice and was glad to have been directed here by other BA members who have reviewed it, otherwise I would have undoubtably skipped over it.

One side note, I was not very impressed with the Schneider Weisse Hefeweizen...or at least what I think was a hefeweizen. Our waitress just sorta pointed at an unfiltered beer from another table and I nodded so that's what I got. It was darker than a usual hefeweizen but not nearly like a dunkel. For me it lacked character and very hard to get the whole thing down. Maybe it would be better as a warm up to the Aventinus...but if I go again I probably won't bother to find out. (1,665 characters)

A truly Teutonic experience. I was there for Starkbierfest (Dopplebocks) and they had Schneider Weisse Aventinus on tap. The glass, the beer, the whole atmosphere was excellent. An old buliding near the Marienplatz that is not hard to find at all and definitely worth seeking out. That was the beer I was seeeking that night so 2 were more than enough at 8% in a large Weizen glass. (382 characters)

This place is huge - the front room is big, then you notice that there is a whole other dining room in the back that is even bigger - there's more rooms upstairs? When I was there during Oktoberfest season, the place was packed. We wandered around until one of the servers held up 3 fingers - meaning a table for 3, then we followed her to a table in the back. It would have been nice to read the German menu since it was 3 times the size of the one in English. I stuck to what I know and ordered the Sauerbraten. The food was fantastic and the beer even better. They had their hefe on tap as well as Aventinus. I didn't see any bottled selections - maybe it was on the German menu? Don't bother getting a Berliner Weisse here, it was just their hefe with some disgusting cherry juice on the bottom of the glass-- yuch! But the Aventinus was superb as well as intoxicating. Advice for newbies - don't eat the pretzels or bread, the pretzels were hard, stale, and expensive -they charge you for whatever you eat out of the basket at the end of the meal. This is a great place for some German food and a few beers and I will be back again...someday. (1,147 characters)

Approximately 1:00 p.m. Monday, September 17, 2001... As I took pictures from every angle of my standing glass of Aventinus, I must have looked a nut! And of the touristic variety, I might add. The genuine glass, full with the dark offering, topped with a rather large capping of stiff, unrelenting, off-white foam...

But what could I do? (Yes, I know -- drink the stuff, you fool). But see, this was my right-of-passage, my first trip inside the Weisses Brauhaus and, quite literally, my very first Aventinus. I had been heretofore untouched by the stuff due to quite purposeful, headstrong abstinence: I was having it in its time in the proper location first, or not at all (one of the few beers for which I will be willing to submit myself to such torture)! After years of notice, first reading of it in Mr. Jackson's and other noted authors' books and even seeing bottles here and there tempting my resolve, it was finally for my taking.

A beauty of a place. For its beer, for its atmosphere, for its food (noted for some of the best regional-style morsels around -- and non-regional surprises...a huge menu, though I noticed that the English menu was not quite the size of the German). (1,196 characters)

Oh, does this place say "German Bier Hall"! The main room you enter is cavernous, with lots of arches, pillars, dark wood, old paintings on the walls, etc.... There are back rooms, upstairs rooms....the place is huge! The biers, needless to say, are outstanding. Aventinus on tap? Superb!! They had 4 or so of their own Schneider biers, as well as 3 or 4 bottled guest biers. Service was sharp and helpful, and the food was plentiful and tasty. I don't know why I had never been in here before on my frequent Munchen visits.... Now the secret is out! Prosit!!

overall: 4.58
