I had the opportunity to visit this place while in Munich seeing my friends. It happened to be during Oktoberfest so the place was packed. From what I am told this place is Oktoberfest 24/7/365. I was able to try a few beers (reviewed in my profile) and my friends ate dinner. I did eat upstairs in one of the banquet halls most don't get to see so that was awesome. It was with a group meal so I am not going to review my food. My friends food however was very traditional. The ceiling was painted with all sorts of neat traditional artwork from years past and the band was loud and the music was catchy. People danced and sang (even when the band was taking a break). My favorite part was the large pretzel vendors walking around (just like ballparks in the states). The pretzels were awesome, great with a liter of beer. The history in this place is worth the wait for a table. Definitely look it up if you are in downtown Munich it was great!

If you are traveling in Germany (i.e., do not live there), you HAVE to experience the Hofbräuhaus in München. When people think of Germany, this is the picture that comes into their minds. Oompah band, sauerkraut with a variety of wurst, and gemutlichkeit; if you don't have a good time here, you are dead.

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!
