Stopped by while in town for Oktoberfest 2008. Fantastic atmosphere. Ridiculously crowded. I wasn’t even going to try to get a seat--mostly just wanted to check the place out and buy a souvenir at the gift shop. Definitely a cool place, given the history and renown. I’d like to visit Munich again and spend some time dining at the famous bars.

Pretty insane, and more or less exactly what you’d expect. A monster of a place, seemingly always packed, but people are generally friendly and you can squeeze in wherever there’s space and be guaranteed to meet tourists from all over the world. We met a particularly interesting Russian couple and a local couple who had come because the man had never been before! Service is surprisingly efficient given the chaos and beers surprisingly affordable, though you are forced to order a mass. Unfortunately the beers aren’t any good. Bland as. But you’ve gotta do it. I wanted to stay and drink there all night just for the hell of it but the pull of better beer all over the city was far too strong.

Hofbrauhaus is a very historical place and a must to go in Munchen at least once. It is very close - walking distance - to Marienplatz, very downtown Munchen. Downstairs there are enormous tables where sometimes people dance and a band playing traditional German popular (not pop) music. Hofbrauhaus has all the atmosphere of a good tourist trap. The service is a bit slow due to the crowd and the food downstairs is awful. Better food upstairs with a more intimate atmosphere and violins playing. Drink Hofbrau beer in Hofbrauhaus is a satisfaction.

Big, noisy Beerhall with excellent food and typical German beer selection (Helles, Dunkel and Weissbier). Available also in 1L mugs! Oompah-band is playing and things get very noisy in the evenings.

Very crowded, noisy and hot, just as beer halls are supposed to be. However, a great deal of the customers are tourists, who inevitably decrease the otherwise good atmosphere. I was more than irritated by some american mid-aged women, who complained about the (in their opinion) too large Maßkrugs and how the beers were too potent for them. Why on earth somebody, who doesn’t even like proper beer in general goes to a place like HB? I bet this place was one of the best bars in the world some 20-50 years back.

Too crowded, too hot, too expensive, still a place to visit and have a good time. The band plays one song and breaks for a beer. Had a liter and moved to the Ayinger and Augustiner across the street.

i´ve been in bush-gardens/florida. in the "festhalle" the "bavarian" band was performing "in münchen steht ein hofbräuhaus" in a very, very bad way. well - everybody has had to be there on time. germany´s most known place for beer and probably one of the most popular ones in the world. but that´s all. loud, crowded, expensive food - everything you expect from a typical place for tourists.

This is a must see for all beer drinkers. If you’re in America, though, just go to Las Vegas, Cincinnati, or Pittsburgh to visit one. I am not a big fan of their products, more of a Spaten or Schneider Weisse fan. The pretzels are great, but the food is horrid. The beer does make the moment...
