The history, the beer, the food, the music, the most renowned German Beer Hall probably in the entire country of Germany is The Hofbrauhaus. This place is dream. Prices are a little high but you don't need to drink much to get have a good time here. The only negative side to this place is that it is full of tourists. Lowenbrau or Spaten are the better choices if you want to avoid that scene but nonetheless this place is great.

A great place to visit while in Munich. It has that real Bavarian feel. The place is packed full of people, especially during the football game night. It’s a must do in Munich to treat yourself to a 1l glass of beer together with some typcial Bavarian cuisine. Awesome.

A fun spot but a bit of a tourist trap. A must on your first visit to Munich, but not so much after that. The food is ok, and there is usually a traditional German band playing. A fun place to people watch, although most of the patrons are out of towers.

A bit of a downer when you find out there are a several HB Haus locations elsewhere in the US etc.

A staple of beer lore. You cannot go to Munich and not stop by the Hofbrauhaus. It only takes one or two litres to get the juices flowing. The sounds of Bavarian music, coupled with traditional Bavarian waitresses made for an incredible atmosphere.

The food was good, but only a fair value for the price. You're obviously paying for more than just the food. The beers are actually reasonably priced, or at least what I was expecting to pay.

Overall, this place is great, and I fully intend to return each time I visit Munich--if I am ever so lucky.
