Came here based on a few recommendation and definitely wasn't disappointed.
This is a huge biergarten with lots of chestnut trees, hundreds of tables and benches, tons of food options, and a fairly good selection of beers as well.
Given the name, you have a pretty good idea of what beers are served here. Unlike some other Augustiner spots, this location serves up the Edelstoff...which is a nice change of pace and equally as good as the normal helles. In addition, they also have the weiss (which looks like a dunkel weiss, FYI) available, however they're poured from bottles. I don't think Augustiner does draft versions of that beer. The dunkel and helles are both missing, but that's typical for most gartens. It's pretty rare to find an entire line-up. I'm not 100% sure, but I think they might have the bottled pils as well.
Food is available at a series of stands. Pork knuckles, pretzels, obatzda, leberkase, frites, ribs, etc. are all available and the prices aren't too bad.
It's only a few blocks from the central station so if you're only going to be in Munich for a couple of hours, this is easily the best option.
For that matter, even for a weeklong trip - this spot's great just because it's the prototypical biergarten.
Plus, supposedly there's a lot of Bavarian political clout at this spot. People watching can be a lot of fun.

I visited 2 times once on a slow afternoon for lunch and 2nd on a busy night. It a nice place for a quiet lunch but at 7pm or later on a June weekday the place was mobbed with people. It can be hard to get a table, we were in the self service area.
For lunch I have Nurnberg wursts which where decent and reasonably nice.

This place was "ok", this being said i got there late and it was cold so no one was there really. The beer is whatever, Augustiner is kind of weak compared to the other german beers. I would have enjoyed it more if the place was crowded. It was strange seeing a sea of empty benches and imagining the mayhem that would occur if those benches were full... I wanted that mayhem.... my parents went to the inside part and said it was the best place ever.... but I can only vouch for what i experienced

This ended up being my favorite place to drink in Munich during my trip. Location is nice, just enough out of the downtown to miss the worst of the masses. Very nice outdoor area that even features a projector for soccer games, can get quite crowded and rowdy during nice weather and big games. Didn't go to the indoor area as the weather was awesome. Standard Munich beer selection and standard Munich tourist prices. Standard beer garden self serve. Food was slightly better than the hofbrau and slightly cheaper.
My favorite of the beer gardens.

Some friends and I stopped in here after having spent a few days at the Oktoberfest. Ive had their brews in the US and knew they were close by to where we were staying. A small uphill walk, with trees overhanging it to the front door. This appeared to look like a traditional German restaurant. We were seated in the room to the left, where we found out was a huge bonus. It was wooden clad, sort of dim, with lots of tables packed tightly, almost looking like a hunting lodge. Before we even sat down we heard and saw what seemed to be a party going on. Accordians, singing, swaying, clapping. The whole room was into it. We recieved our litres promptly and soon joined in the festivities. There were people from all different countries, all there having the best time. The food was outstanding and had the home-made taste. Baskets of warm soft pretzels served with obatzda cheese spread and many litres of beer to follow. Their Marzen was crisp, and sweet and ever so easy to drink. We stayed for a couple of hours enjoying the great beer, delicious food, and amazing atmosphere. Ill never forget this stop.

stopped here during a work trip to germany last week and was very glad I did. very typical german brauhaus with good beer. the restaurant takes up almost an entire block since there is a hug outdoor area. sadly since it is winter nothing was happening outside but I can imagine what the summer and octoberfest must be like.
as you enter the brauhaus there are three smaller rooms in the front and a huge room in the back. we went to the large room in the back at about 5:30 with almost no one there and by 7:00 it was packed. beer was good although as expected there were only 3 or 4 beers and the food was fairly good as well.
overall i would definitely recommend it if you are in munich.
