This place is as bavarian as it gets. The decor is furnished with giant wooden tables, exposed beams, mounted deer heads. It is very touristy, but is also worth experiencing. I went there several times for a quick beer and a pretzel and enjoyed myself. Like always the wait staff keeps you "waiting", but it is something you will have to deal with in germany. I'm not sure how the food is, when I ate there I was extremely drunk... like stumbling around and I ordered a german cheese platter.... German cheese is very poignant and almost caused me to vomit. this was not the fault of this wonderful bierhall, but instead my own drunkeness

Visited at the end of October, 2011. Sat inside in the beer hall near the entrance; only having a couple beers.
The interior is what you'd expect of a normal Munich beer hall. Dark wooden paneling and trim, shared seating which are half chairs and half benches.
Several beers available on tap.
Menu has a pretty good selection but didn't try and of the food.
The service was not very friendly and extremely slow, even for normal German service. Was not tremendously busy, seats were filled with a lot of tourists.

The place is huge & was the first place we visited after arriving in Munich. Tonnes of seating but it was pretty busy and it was still only around 5pm. The beer selection was pretty good with around 7 or 8 choices plus a Maibock that wasn't listed. The service was good with a waiter seating us quickly, recommending various beers & food selections. The food itself was pretty good, the sausage platter I ordered being one of the best I tried in Munich. The value was also reasonable & about par in price with most places in the surrounding area if not slightly cheaper than some of the well known places. I enjoyed it so much I was back again the next days for more drinks.

This Bierhalle is not too far from Marienplatz. It is a huge, huge place with an ample amount of seating yet it was nearly packed to capacity. We decided to go here after Schneider was completely full and sent us away.
I only had a few nibbles of one of the sausages, but it seemed liek standard fare for food. The beer menu had about 7-8 beers. I got a half liter of dunkel vom faß and a bottle of pils.
The prices were as they are in all of the tourist areas a bit expensive but the service was very friendly at this particular hall.
It is a pretty good Bierhall to check out.

Visited in May '10 on my tour of Europe for dinner and a few beers and loved this place. Enormous hall with wooden tables and bench seating, just like the Hofbräuhaus down the road. The decor set the mood perfectly for some good beers and food. The beer selection was OK, but they were incredibly satisfying. The service was excellent, given our large party and was able to serve us our food very quickly. The food was delicious and made a good addition to an already fun evening. Next time I get to Munich I would consider making a return trip.

Nice Bavarian atmosphere with prompt service.
Large, often shared, wooden tables where one can meet new friends. Nice rustic decor and south German theme. Perfect place for Gemütlichkeit! Did I mention few to if any tourist, I would drink here over the Hofbräuhaus any day.
Servers often need to be flagged down but that is to be expected. Drinks are received quickly. A few different types of beers are offered from Augustiner. This quite normal and the beers are various styles and are all delicious. For being in the city center, the prices are quite reasonable. When visiting München my Bavarian friends prefer this place, it's a less known, yet equally pleasant gem. Highly recommend!

This place in the city centre of munich is surprisingly reasonably priced but the selection of beer is small albeit very good.
You can get Dunkles vom Fass which is probably your best choice but the Helles vom Fass is very fresh and good as well. Avoid there weisse Franziskaner is lengths better!
The food selection is good and tatsy and the service is very friendly and most importantly prompt!!!
No waiting for your Dunkles vom Fass here. In all worth going there I d say. The building as such is a definite highlight.

made this the last stop one of the evenings spent in munich last week. very authentic and traditional looking decor. service was good, nothing spectacular, if you don't count the number of liter mugs our server carried with two hands, which must have been in the neighborhood of 10. beer was quite good; had the edelstoff and the maximator - both were tasty. didn't try the food, although the pretzels were tasty, as they always are. nice place to stop by for a couple liters (or so) of augustiner.

Your classic Munich beer hall that serves bratwurts, weisswurts, schnitzel, etc. and carries exclusively Augustiner beers. When I was there on October 18, 2009, they carried the helles, dunkel, and weissbier. Awesome architecture with arched ceilings and big, heavy wooden doors. Big tables that you share with strangers - kind fun.
The waitresses are dressed up in traditional German garb and they charge you 0.90 per pretzel, which are sitting in a basket on the table begging you to take one. The waitress will bring you a jar of mustard if you ask.

After a long overnight flight, then drinks and dinner at Weisses Brauhaus, Hofbrauhaus, and Der Pschorr, we decided to make Augustiner our finale fourth stop of our first day in Munich for Oktoberfest. Very old school look from the outside, and a even more impressive inside. Looks like a beer hall that Germans would go to. Seems like the inside hasn't changed since the 1930's. Crazy decoration work with seashells, be sure to look at the craftsmanship of the wall decor. Grabbed a table and were served in a decent amount of time. Man, that Augustiner beer is damn good. Had a nice round of beers and a late night pretzel with my wife. A great way to end our first day in Munich.
