Visited May 2014. As many others have already said, this is not the place to visit if you are after a choice of beer. Having said that, the one beer on offer is very drinkable. The beer garden is a pleasant place to sit and the interior with its selection of rooms and food stalls was interesting to explore. Well worth a visit.

Hugely touristy and quite noisy but the beer they serve are incredible. Fresh wooden Kellerbier. By far the best beer avaliable in the area and city. Had 2 or 3 seidlas and could have had many more. Food options are limited and the service is non excistent. But go for that one very fine beer and enjoy it amongst the other tourists in the giant beergarden. 3 / 6 Euro’s Seidla/Mass

A bit ambivalent, partly awesome, but also with some downsides.
The different halls are really worth seeing and have a great traditional atmosphere and interior, you won’t often find. You will feel a bit like moved back in a bygone era. The beer garden is also beautiful, lots of big, old trees.
The food is available at different market stalls from different producers, which is a good idea basically, but the prices are insane: I once bought an ordinary breaded fish with fries and small salad and paid more than 20 euros!
Instead the beer isn’t expensive but they usually have just one, a Märzen lager tapped from wooden barrels and really one of the best beers of this style you could find! In winter they have a bock beer, which I didn’t try yet and in spring an ordinary lager beer, which isn’t really worth trying.
All self-service, you have to take a Stein from a rack and wash it at a stone well, which is quite funny.
Overall surely a must visit in Salzburg, which could be a great experience, if you are aware that not everything is perfect.

Yes no selection of beer, and everyone drinks the same beer on tap, the marzen. But it is good. Several options for food, all on the expensive side. I walked here from my hotel, up the hill. Upon entering it appeared empty. Down the stairs and still quiet, it looked like I would have the place to myself. then I come to the outdoor keller, with hundreds of people. A great place to relax and have a few beers. No service, order at the counter. I tried the pork shoulder here, and didn’t care for it very much. But I was happy to try it. Visited April 2013.

Rating is lower than it should be because it has no selection, only 1 beer on tap, 1 in a bottle. Food you have to get yourself but there is choice. This place is howerver unique and amazing. You get a stein out of a cabinet and then walk up to the counter where they pour one for you. Awesome!

While the service is non-existent (self-serve), the selection limited to one beer (enjoyable) and the food average, it’s atmosphere and style more than make this worth a visit. We spent the better part of an afternoon here after seeing sights during the morning.

Very traditional beer hall and overall a lot of atmosphere. Beers are below average: One lager Beer - very light. During winter months they also offer a bock beer, which is too sweet. However the stone tankards, the beer halls and the food, although very expensive, make the Müllner Bräu a must visit for beer tourists.

It’s a taxi job from the centre but it is a classic brewery beer garden and beer hall that the whole party will remember. Serves its single beer direct from upright uncarbonated wooden casks. The food mall upstairs seems franchised. No, it’s not the best in the world but it is a bit special.

The best beer garden/hall in the world? Maybe. Marzen beer is fabulous; waaay too easy to gulp down. Buying a beer is fun (read up before strolling in) and cheap (6 euros for a liter?) Food stalls were solid and fun to try; especially "Grilled Whole Fish on a stick". A decent walk uphill from old town but well worth it. A must!

We visited here Saturday 2nd June 2012 and loved it. This is a huge place the Biergarten was massive, the beer (only one choice) was good and to be sat here in the sun ( a rarity on this holiday) was a treat. Everyone around from youngsters to the old seemed to be having a good time, we had another beer and lapped up the atmosphere. Great place.
