Stopped here while touring Munich. It was shortly after Oktoberfest, so there was still a buzz to the place, but not the enormous crowds. Didn’t eat any food, but had a couple of liter beers; both were pilsner. The biergarten was really nice. I walked around inside the bauhaus briefly. Great looking atmosphere. My only problem with the place was that there really wasn’t much of a selection. It was pils or hefe. There were a lot of other Lowenbrau beers that i would have liked to have tried. Overall, a great place to stop and have a couple liters of beer.

Beautiful building. One of the best in Munich. Did not eat. Had two beers, Helles and Dunkles. Fine, nothing special.

Visited September 2012 with chinoskillzian.
First beer stop of the day. You can read my rating of the Augustiner Keller to get more of the details but there was basically no sleep had the night before and after a long walk in the rain through München I was about ready for a beer, and a pretzel. I was pleasantly surprised by just how many beers Löwenbräu makes that aren’t exported. They were mostly good. I enjoyed the Löwenbräu Helles and the Franziskaner Weissbier Royal. I didn’t care for the Urtyp and sadly they were out of the Triumphator. The server on the first trip was friendly but the one on the second trip was a total bitch. I asked why she was in such a bad mood and she in return threw my silverware down on the table and walked off. See, if this was in America I would have the option of not tipping at all but this angry waste of space has her 15% built in already no matter how rude she is. Considering one day the service was good and the next it was shit I’m averaging the scores. I used to think the tipping system was evil but now I know that it keeps people (slightly) more honest.

Quite all right, pleasant beer garden, old fashioned beer hall inside. Very similar to the similar outlets for the traditional Munich breweries. Good service, nothing wrong with the beer. Have a Triumphator from tap!

Good food good beer nice setting but woefully slow service, I almost died of thirst the 3 times I ordered beer. Luckily the quality was almost worth the wait.

Visited on a Sunday evening in July ’12 between a change of trains at the HBF. Tram runs pretty much door to door but you can walk it in little over 10 minutes.
Large beirkeller but we chose to sit outside the main building in an open area but with a porch over our heads.
The place wasn’t particularly busy but the weather wasn’t great on this evening.
Service was the usual German style of efficient but not over friendly from our 40 something female server.
Had a half litre of Triumphator which went down well.
Didn’t eat although the food we saw being brought out looked good.
I’d certainly come here again perhaps for a more extended session, but usueful for a quick half litre if you have an hour to kill at the HBF.

Traditional and massive bierkeller. We (a party of 11 blokes) sampled the shared platter buffet affair, which was supremely good value and contained many meaty, savoury items. Lowenbrau beer is excellent, so you can’t go far wrong here.
