I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since I was there during Oktoberfest! Went there just to check it out before heading to the Oktoberfest grounds, ended up staying for 5 hours.

Place was jammed in the middle of a weekeday afternoon, but to be expected during Oktoberfest. Was a little chilly and we ordered our first beer on the patio, were contemplating leaving until we walked by a table with a group of people getting up. SCORE! It's on!

A traditional Bavarian band was doing there thing and getting the crow going, we were instantly warm, and the 1 litre beers, or Maß, were flowing. I remember having a few of the Dunkle, the Hefe Weizen, and of course the Oktoberfestbier. FANTASTIC! Way to caught up in the moment to bother with beer reviews, but I was so glad to have some variety after the stead stream of 'festbier' on the grounds .Had a giant pretzel help soak some up.

Only knock was that we tried to ask our server about food and he basically ignored us, granted it was jam packed, but the food looked really good, and we just ended up sticking to the beers.

A must visit in Munich no matter what time of year. With my drunken Canadian comrades we immediately began pondering why we don't have a place like this at home, and wondered if it would be as big a hit there.... then we ordered another. PROST!!!

Tourist trap in Munich. Much better restaurants and beer to be had with a better atmosphere.

A must see destination for beer lovers traveling through Munich if at the least to enjoy the fresh beer and see this vast beer hall. Great beer, good service and descent food.

It shouldn't be too surprising that you'll only find Hofbräu beer being served here and a fairly standard menu of German pub food. The service was courteous but like much of Bavaria, don't wait for a server to stop over you'll have to let him know you thirsty or hungry.

There are three floors with group seating, an oompah band with a slightly raucous party crowd on the first, at let post Oktoberfest. The second floor has a quieter table service where you can sit with just your party. The third floor was all reserved seating for large tour bus sized parties.

This place is crazy. I went in the week leading up to Oktoberfest so my opinion may be skewed by a lot of things. First off, come in and sit anywhere. All community seating and no-one minds a friend, right? Secondly, look for the pretzel lady. €4 (ish) later, start looking over the menu for some awesome food and beer. They have different language menus available, ask for one if you need one! Seevice was terri le, but it was busy and like I said, during the lead-in to oktoberfest.. They had an awesome band and the vibe was great!

In the heart of Munich, this is why you come to this city. Dark wood, old world ambience. Oompah band in lederhosen cranking out the singing songs. Didn't eat anything , just come here for the bier and the atmosphere. Touristy? Yes. But, I don't live in Munich so I must be a tourist!

Loved the atmosphere when we walked out in. Just what I was expecting from a traditional German beer hall. Very busy but we were welcomed when we asked to sit with two other men at one of the tables. It took awhile to get someone to take our beer order. Even longer to get our food order in. The giant pretzels were outstanding and the bratwurst and sauerkraut was out of this world. They had a band playing traditional German music and there were groups of patrons singing along with the band. Overall a terrific experience for an American.

Kind of a must-go place in Munich, but the dream is better than the reality. Super crowded most of the time, so expect to wander around for a while or sit upstairs in one of the off-the-beaten-path areas of the place to get a seat. Beer is not great and is a little more expensive than other places. If you are in college, go for it. If you are visiting with your family, you might want to avoid the crowd and noise (or just walk through to check it out, but eat/drink elsewhere).
