Large beer hall between the Hbf and the Town Hall in the centre of Munich. It’s a lovely old building, loads of traditional features oozing history. Lots of wood.
Beer wise it has a decent range from Augustiner, beer quality is excellent, prices are steep.
Service was OK.
A good spot to visit as a start to the beer halls of Munich

Large building set in the center of a block of other buildings. High ceilinged wooden rooms inside with a medium sized courtyard in the middle, stuffed with tables and umbrellas, but painted and designed very nicely. Beer is, of course, only a 3-4 selections from Augustiner, and their helles was especially disappointing, but I still enjoyed the asparagus soup and of course the look and feel of the place.

Nice beer hall along the busy thoroughfare leading to Marienplatz. I had dinner here and food was decent and the lagerbier hit the spot nicely after many hours travelling. Service was good. Not too crowded in the garden.

Went here on my last night in Munich. Like someone else has already mentioned it’s split into two halves with food one side, the left side as you view from front of building and food on right. I ate here and had some Bavarian meat fest’ like most other meals I’d had whilst in Munich the portions were quite large and well mostly meat, the Serbian waiter who served us was very funny but for the second time on this trip he’d deceided to add his tip onto the bill and made no bones about doing so. The beer was very good and the atmosphere great as well, easy to find and good for combining food and drink. There is also the Augistiner Keller which is well worth seeking out, maybe 15-20 mins walk from the centre on the tram 16-17 line more drink orientated than food but well worth going for to go to the excellent vaulted cellar bar.
Paid many a visit here over the years, most recently Oct’ 09 for Nuttys stag.
Trad beer hall 10 to 15 minutes walk from the HBF with most Augustiner beers availlable.
This place is always busy when I visit, be it lunch or evening.
Have eaten here once and the food was decent but unspectacular.
Service prompt and efficient typical of a Munchen venue - middle aged slightly bossy women!
From memory they close at midnight and are keen to kick you out ASAP!
Well worth stopping by here.
Nice spot. Big interior rooms with plenty of seating. A modest range of beers. Very friendly staff (something of a marked contrast against the servers from some of the nearby beer hall joints). The beers here aren’t the most complex in the world but they are among the most drinkable. I had a great time here and would recommend a visit.
This is not only a "Bierhalle" but also a nice restaurant. It is on the main pedestrian street between Hauptbahnhof and Marienplatz. My family and I had lunch in the ornate Italianate beer garden. I do not mind enjoying beer and food surronded by frescoes! Augustiner beers are not among my top favourites. Edelstoff, Pils and Helles are refreshing but rather thin. Anyway, this warm summer day, the beers were lovely! (Visited July 7th 2011)
December 2011 - Situated right on the main drag leading to the Marienplatz, this is a vast and sprawling touristy restaurant, complete with a menu in 6 languages. Unfortunately, I’d define it more as a tourist restaurant than a beer destination, although the Augustiner beers were yummy. The food was only so-so -- but at least we could get a table.
Big place with a traditional beerhall feel and 5-6 of their beers on tap. Service wasn’t all that friendly, but not exactly surly. Not a bad place to try their beers. They had the Maximator when I went, which is why I stopped at this one.
Augustiner Grossgaststätte, mentioned both in "The Beer Drinker’s Guide To Munich (Fifth Edition)" and in "Good Beer Guide Germany". Found it easy enough walking down from the haubtbahnhof and had my first beer in the center of Munich of my travel. Didn’t try eating and left after only two beers when I got a crazy lady next to me, but had I had more time I would have returned later during my week. Rather nice and seemed popular and crowded.
