Made the trip to Munich for the Christmas Market and decided to rate my 100th place in the process. If you have to hit a milestone why not enjoy it at the famed establishment. Food was very reasonable and tasty, the place was packed to the brim and service was slow. Then my waiter was a little hard on hearing because instead of a dunkle I got a Radler (big difference). I still found a way to enjoy myself. This is a must see if just for a liter or two!

Everyone has to come here at least one while in Munich. The place is overrun by tourists, but the atmosphere can’t be beat.

Great ambiance, very good service, good food (bavarian sweet), I loved the big hall... but concerning beer it was not a good experience.

Ate dinner with the family. A very pleasant, jovial atmosphere. Everyone was seeming to have a good time. We were seated next to the two-man Bavariaran band in the Mozart room(very cool). Wait staff was friendly and rather prompt for how crowded it was. The food was good but nothing to write home about. I had a maß of dunkel which went great with the Venetian Schnitzel and Kartoffeln. Very touristy but very fun too. Like everyone else said, if you’re in Munich, you simply must go... and then go somewhere else.

It’s the Niagara Falls, Las Vegas, and Disneyland of beer. Watch the tour groups shuffle in. Just try and duck the cameras, videocams, etc. Thank the stars that you don’t play in the Hofbrauhaus Brass Band for a living. Don’t mention the War. And then just open yourself to the essential goodness of Hofbrau beer and drink in the atmosphere. There are many better places to drink in Munich, but this is sort of the Mother Ship so get it out of the way, get yer souvenirs, and Get Silly!

Its a tourist spot, but one you should hit if you’re in town. I would just grab a beer and head out. There are many better places in town, so spend your time and your money there. Its just one of those places you have to hit if its your first time and quite possibly your last time in Munich.

I visited several years ago on a cold, wet night in March. It felt like a tourist trap to me... but a friendly one. Very crowded. The beer was not that good... the food was good but not great. I’m glad I went but would not go back. There are too many other great places to eat and drink in the city.

l’ambiente è veramente bello e avvolgente ti trasmette molta passione per la birra.il servizio è discreto e la birra anche se non è la mia preferita del genere tedesco e una buona birra. la storia è sempre bella da bere.

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.
