Your classic Munich beer hall that serves bratwurts, weisswurts, schnitzel, etc. and carries exclusively Augustiner beers. When I was there on October 18, 2009, they carried the helles, dunkel, and weissbier. Awesome architecture with arched ceilings and big, heavy wooden doors. Big tables that you share with strangers - kind fun.

The waitresses are dressed up in traditional German garb and they charge you 0.90 per pretzel, which are sitting in a basket on the table begging you to take one. The waitress will bring you a jar of mustard if you ask.

Totally enjoyed this place. Dined there late on a Thursday night. Service was quick and helpful. The food was delicious. Got a huge plate of German sausages with potatoes. Beer was delicious. Lots of great Augustiner lagers and several bottles. Nice open and airy beer hall. I will come back next time I am in Munich.

Hofbrau Biergarten was overrun with tourists (like me) so my family and I ended up here. Great convivial attitude throughout staff and clientele. We had the famous Munchen Weisswurst and some great Munich lagers. Big Bierhalle with room for lots of beer drinkers. I highly recommend!

This is my quintessential Bavarian Bierhalle. Augustiner beer is one of my all time favorites. Everytime I am in Muenchen this is an absolute must do. The Schweinebraten was amazing, as well as the mushroom in herbed cream sauce. The service was impeccable, and friendly. I was curious if i would have to try the little bit of German i know, but, they all spoke excellent english, and brought an english menu. Although in the middle of Oktoberfest, they still spent enough time to discuss the items on the menu to everyones satisfaction. The beer was served quickly. The prices are actually reasonable considering being in Germany during Oktoberfest.

As one other person noted, the HofBrauhaus is always extremely packed, and the Augustiner Grossgaststaette is huge, so they can accommodate a large group and still not feel like it's too packed.

I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Muenchen. The best of German Gemuetlichkeit !! (German Hospitality).

Too noisy atmosphere, service too nice little nervous i'un treatment. Encaraque we were not tourists had to be both entressats. I take a dunkel, very good. The food, well served but too little subtle for my taste 4 different sausages in a dish for me is excessive.

Right near the heart of Marienplatz it is everything you expect from a Munich beer hall. The servers are truly professionals, and obviously there are no language barriers as it is a major tourist attraction. The food was great, we made sure to stop there most days and get the Goulash. The ambiance definitely reflects the reason the reason that the Germans have a word for coziness, Gemutilichkeit. Awesome place that is a must for anyone stopping in Munich!

This place is as bavarian as it gets. The decor is furnished with giant wooden tables, exposed beams, mounted deer heads. It is very touristy, but is also worth experiencing. I went there several times for a quick beer and a pretzel and enjoyed myself. Like always the wait staff keeps you "waiting", but it is something you will have to deal with in germany. I'm not sure how the food is, when I ate there I was extremely drunk... like stumbling around and I ordered a german cheese platter.... German cheese is very poignant and almost caused me to vomit. this was not the fault of this wonderful bierhall, but instead my own drunkeness

Visited at the end of October, 2011. Sat inside in the beer hall near the entrance; only having a couple beers.

The interior is what you'd expect of a normal Munich beer hall. Dark wooden paneling and trim, shared seating which are half chairs and half benches.

Several beers available on tap.

Menu has a pretty good selection but didn't try and of the food.

The service was not very friendly and extremely slow, even for normal German service. Was not tremendously busy, seats were filled with a lot of tourists.

The place is huge & was the first place we visited after arriving in Munich. Tonnes of seating but it was pretty busy and it was still only around 5pm. The beer selection was pretty good with around 7 or 8 choices plus a Maibock that wasn't listed. The service was good with a waiter seating us quickly, recommending various beers & food selections. The food itself was pretty good, the sausage platter I ordered being one of the best I tried in Munich. The value was also reasonable & about par in price with most places in the surrounding area if not slightly cheaper than some of the well known places. I enjoyed it so much I was back again the next days for more drinks.

This Bierhalle is not too far from Marienplatz. It is a huge, huge place with an ample amount of seating yet it was nearly packed to capacity. We decided to go here after Schneider was completely full and sent us away.

I only had a few nibbles of one of the sausages, but it seemed liek standard fare for food. The beer menu had about 7-8 beers. I got a half liter of dunkel vom faß and a bottle of pils.

The prices were as they are in all of the tourist areas a bit expensive but the service was very friendly at this particular hall.

It is a pretty good Bierhall to check out.

Visited in May '10 on my tour of Europe for dinner and a few beers and loved this place. Enormous hall with wooden tables and bench seating, just like the Hofbräuhaus down the road. The decor set the mood perfectly for some good beers and food. The beer selection was OK, but they were incredibly satisfying. The service was excellent, given our large party and was able to serve us our food very quickly. The food was delicious and made a good addition to an already fun evening. Next time I get to Munich I would consider making a return trip.

Nice Bavarian atmosphere with prompt service.
Large, often shared, wooden tables where one can meet new friends. Nice rustic decor and south German theme. Perfect place for Gemütlichkeit! Did I mention few to if any tourist, I would drink here over the Hofbräuhaus any day.

Servers often need to be flagged down but that is to be expected. Drinks are received quickly. A few different types of beers are offered from Augustiner. This quite normal and the beers are various styles and are all delicious. For being in the city center, the prices are quite reasonable. When visiting München my Bavarian friends prefer this place, it's a less known, yet equally pleasant gem. Highly recommend!
