This place is something else, the Disneyland of Bavarian beer culture. Huge building with many different seating areas. Make sure to arrive somewhat early as it closes and empties out fairly early by American standards. Think of the Hofbräuhaus as more of an experience than a restaurant and you're on the right track. Where we sat there were tons of old wooden table crowded up with tons of people and even more beer. The raucous environment encourages socialization with those nearby. Food was good but expensive. All of this to the backing of a band busting out drinking songs and Schlager songs.
Downsides: expensive prices and average to poor service. Just remember you're not paying for the food/service, you're paying for the experience.
This place is incredible, everyone must go here at least once. The pretty good food, limited beer selection, and high prices make it difficult to recommend going more than once, but that one time you do go, oh boy, get ready to have a blast.
