I visited on a Saturday night at the start of Oktoberfest. It was incredibly busy; even hard to find a place to stand on the street. Nevertheless I got fairly quick service. There was little apparent choice - Alt or Alt. I would definitely go back,and see how it is when (if) it is quieter.Well worth a visit.

Located in the heart of the Old Town, this venue is huge, occupying several halls inside the building and having tables even on the other side of the street. Apart from the reguaær Alt (and Weizen in summer), one can buy the excellent Sticke and Doppel-Sticke in bottles to take away (they are only on tap in season) but finding the exact spot to do so is not easy, and there is no guarantee the beer will be in stock. Busy but polite staff - not excessively friendly, though. Did not try the food.
Well, famous and crowdy, for a good reason perhaps, this place is, IMHO, a little overrated, compared to some other brewpubs in town. Worth a visit but perhaps not a second one.
Ambiance - Very big German brewpub with lots of different rooms with different themed decor. we sat down in the bar area which was rather small with plenty of people in a good mood. Cozy place! Service - Friendly. Selection - Their alt which is very good and a weisse that was solid. Food - Did not eat. Value - Fair. Additional comments - None!
The place looks great but is overrun with tourists and locals alike, so the service can be pretty lousy. Have two beers, the usual Alt and also a Hefeweizen. Also have a couple of seasonals that are stronger versions of the Altbier-style (Sticke and Doppelsticke) have only ever tried these others in bottles though and have never seen them here at the brewery when I have visited. The beer is good (particularly the Doppelsticke, the Alt here is not my favourite) but I find that there are better places in D’dorf to enjoy a beer or two. They do have food, I have never tried it tho’.
