This is just one of those "must visit" places. And it doesn't dissapoint. Huge, loaded with history, packed with revelers, complete with umpah band, adorned with the sexiest pretzel girls you've ever seen, and serving (bier) in massive one-liter steins. It's beer heaven really. The atmosphere is phenomenal. I recommend spending an afternoon in the biergarten. The service is good and fast, although, as with almost everywhere I went in Germany, I wish they would check on the table more often. Of course, the liter steins help mitigate that need. The selection is small but the beers are excellent examples of the styles. The food is very good & the whole thing not too expensive for a place that could probably charge whatever they like & still draw a tourist crowd. If you make it to Bavaria, this one is mandatory. Prost! (826 characters)

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! (284 characters)

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. (541 characters)

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). (481 characters)

The food is amazing but the beer is overpriced, as expected for a "tourist trap." (81 characters)
