This is my favorite brewery restaurant in Munich, and Iíve pretty much been to all of them. All the beers are outstanding and the food is perfectly prepared and is probably the best German fare Iíve ever head. The seasonal offerings I tried were all outstanding. The service is quick and friendlier than your average German restaurant. The waiters and waitresses have always been able to help me select the what they felt were the most kick-ass dishes on the menu. I gotta say, Iíve agreed with them! I just keep going back.
The place is always packed, as itís probably the smallest Brauhaus in Munich, at least in Marienplatz. Itís even smaller than the Ayinger restaurant across from that awful tourist trap, Hofbrau Haus. The cavernous basement is cozy and old-feeling.
Canít say much about the selection. I mean, it is Germany. Selection is pretty much non-existent in this country. Itís a concept the Germans donít quite grasp. A German once said to somebody I know, when he was talking about wanting to try different beers from all over Europe, "why do that? They donít make a good beer where you come from?"
Anyways, go here when in town, but not first. Youíll be slightly disappointed with every other place you visit next. And donít let the crowd on the deck deter you. Theyíre just there to what the football game.

Got here on a crowded Friday night. A nice place and food was the normal Munich fare. Service was a bit slow but the crowd was huge. Beers are great as all know. A nice stop and if you cannot get to the mountian then come here.

If you canít make it out to Andechs, you should definitely hit up this place. The Doppelbock is unbelievable. Even Bill Clinton came to this place!

Stopped in here for a beer and to warm up just before catching a the train with my husband on our honeymoon. It was snowing outside and the warm atmosphere was just what we needed. The place was packed - it was a weeknight in January - a mixture of locals and tourists. Beer was great and we plan to visit the monestary this summer. In fact, we enjoyed the beer so much that we missed not one but two trains before we finally made it home!

If you donít have the time to travel to the monastry get at least the typical beers (Helles, Dunkel and Weissbier) here. Small and crowded place (quite typical Beerhall in Germany really). Food seemed good.

Very convenient way to get a fix of the beers if there is no time for the monastery. Itís a nice, traditional, large place with lots of seating options: a sprawling sidewalk patio, a smoker atrium, upstairs and down...Having said that, the am Dom outlet has nothing on the monastery. In fact, the beers were not in great form when we were at am Dom, whereas they were much fresher from the Nurnberg tap!

Much smaller than HB or Augustiner, and a lot less crowded too. Good service and reasonable prices. I cannot comment on the food, but the beer was clearly of the better south-german brews.

Medium sized place right behind Marienplatz. I was there on Tuesday around 2 p.m. and there was plenty of free tables. Lots of religiously picturs and paintings on the walls and ceiling. On each table are excellent spicy mini sausages for free. Unfortunately Andechser Jubilšumsbier Dunkel NaturtrŁb is no longer avaliable.

Nice little place right behind the Dom. Sat outside, couldnít sit inside if we wanted to, it was so packed. That was fine by us! Excellent service and delicious food, but really youíre there for the beer, which is lovely!

Sort of had a modern feel to it, with a small bar section where a rowdy crowd was watching a football match, then a restaurant side that was sparsely population, then an outdoor patio area that was full. The beer quality, of course, is excellent, and should be the reason to visit. Fresh Andescher Doppelbock Dunkel from the keg is pure magic, and the helles is respectable as well.
