A clean brauhaus with a good feeling to it. Maybe because we went there for lunch, but it was busy, yet at a respectful noise level. The waitress loved her beers and tongue-in-cheek gave us a hard time for ordering the "girly" half liters until we were on out third half liter. Gotta try them all (or many), you know?!

Had never had their beers before and only occasionally spotted that blue 6-pack here and there in the States, near the domestic swill, making me think it was a passé sort of low brow beer. Well damn. I was wrong! Loved em, and the hearty food we got paired very well.

Visited on a busy summer night, it was very busy. The beer is your typical Munich fare. A small selection of their own brews at a reasonable price. Its a bit further away from city centre, so I probably would not visit again with some better choices like Altes Hackerhaus and Weisses Bräuhaus a short walk from city center.

The Lowenbrau bierhall is easily accessed from the Stiglmaier-platz U-bahn stop (right next to it). It's as large as any of the others in Munich, the biggest distinctions being:
1. Lowenbrau beer
2. Quieter atmosphere than the other beer halls I've been to

While I appreciate point 2, I don't really appreciate point 1. Lowenbrau helles doesn't taste as good to me as the other 5 of the Munich big six and that's why it took 3 trips to Munich before I ever went here. But the hall itself is pretty and the laid-back nature of the place made for a nice dinner experience. If you skip the helles some of the other beers are fine.

One other point: the service was extremely slow. Much slower than it should have been based on my experiences at other beer halls in Munich. Just my experience though.

This is a pretty large beer hall not far from the city center.

It has a very nice atmosphere and is more laid-back than say hofbraeuhaus. They have about 5 or 6 beers on tap and a few in bottles. It isn't a huge selection but it isn't bad. This was during starkbierzeit so I got the Triumphator and Dunkel which were both tasty but not mindblowing. The service was friendly and forced me to drink the last little droplets of my first glass to get my second.

The food is pretty good, i got the Shweinhaxe and it was huge and filling. The potatoes it came with were a bit less stellar but the giant hunk of meat made up for it.

Overall this is a nice Beerhall to check out when in Muenchen.

Visited on the evening of the 29/09/2010 before a visit to the Fest.

Located right at the corner of Nymphenburger Strasse and Dachauer strasse. Easy access directly beside Stiglmaierplatz U Bahn station.

Very grand appearance from outside, a castle like turret, golden yellow walls and brick work, with the famous Lowenbrau Lion statue standing outside. Beer garden toward the left hand side but this was closed.

On entering into the restaurant, it was just as grand, like a medieval dining room, the bar area on the right hand side and the kichen area toward the left, lots of booths, large round tables, all dark wood. Toward the back up the large staircase appeared to be several function rooms or maybe some other restaurant area, didnt get a chance to look.

Not overly busy, not many tourists at all, large groups of revellers eating and drinking which made for a bustling atmosphere but not chaotic.

Service was average, there were plenty of waiters and it not being particularly busy, but still took ages to get an order in. There was who seemed to be some sort of head waiter standing up on the staircase, directing other waiters, but he didnt seem to have a clue what was going on. I think he even lost a large groups reservation.

Sampled a half litre of dunkel which was top notch, served in a branded willibecher. This went well with a plate of kaesespaetzle. The dish was pretty bland and dry compared to other spaztles i have tried in munich, but was well presented.

Selection was as expected full range of Lowenbrau beers including Triumphator doppelbock on tap.

A grand building made a wonderful setting, but service and food let it down. Will visit next time in Munich as the condition of the beer was excellent.

Went here while visiting Munich in the winter of 2010. Lowenbrau wasn't too far away from the main train station so we decided to check it out. This beer hall seemed a lot more laid back than most of the other ones we had been in. Maybe more of a place that real Germans hang out instead of all the other more touristy halls. We checked out the menu and really didn't find too much that looked good to us so we just ended up having a couple beers. The Helles was very good, I think I have had that in the bottle before as well and remember thinking that it was pretty good. The service was just ok...it took forever for us to be able to pay for our drinks but part of that it probably my fault as my German isn't that great. If I'm ever in Munich again I'm gonna have to come back it was a nice laid back change of pace for sure.

This place was very relaxing. The atmosphere was a little dark, but there's a lot of stain glass work and other Bavarian style architecture to admire.

I had a just a little bit to eat here. The liver dumpling soup was about the best I'd ever had, but the real reason I was here was for the beer.

They have the standard fair as far as beer goes, but I've always been a fan of Löwenbräu's Helles. It's what got my feet wet for imported beer, which led to my fondness of craft beer.

Overall the prices didn't look too bad, and the waitress was very nice. She joked around and kept the atmosphere very light; in comparison to my experience at the Augistiner establishment I visited.

A group of four of us visited this establishment on a Sunday in December 2007. I had had a quick look in earlier when it was very busy. By the time we entered, there was plenty of room, and we had our pick of tables. The interior was typical Munich Bierhalle style with wooden tables, vaulted ceilings etc. An interesting feature I noticed was a stained glass window depicting a figure complete with Lowenbrau steinkrug. There seemed to be a number of other rooms off the main central area.
There was no English menu, but our waiter was very helpful, and translated anything we needed translating. In fact (unusual for Munich), this man was very glad to practice his excellent English, and was very friendly. We had a fine lunch with amazing portions and washed down with Lowenbrau Triumphator (a bit dissappointing), and a Franciskaner Weissbier dunkel.

This is the kind of place that you could get very comfortable in. I was very glad we visited it. It is located close to the musea (Altes Pinakothek, Lanbach Haus, etc.). I certainly enjoyed it.
