I didnt know how important a beer hall is in germans' life and this is the best in town. You are able to watch live typical music, have a wonderful huge beer and eat very very well. I do recomend!

I love the Hofbrauhaus. The food was ok, service was ok too! But the experience was fun and entertaining. sit down at a picnic style table with people you don't know, sing along to the live music, or just people watch.

You could not possibly visit Munich and skip the Hofbrauhaus! Food, albeit not all that great, is served with gusto while the German music and loud laughter and singing fill the air. There is no place for worries here.

Everyone needs to go to a beer house once in their lives. A big loud lively place with lots of beer and excellent food. Enjoy the company of locals and listen to the band and enjoy a beer.

This is definitely a tourist destination. I don't know if I met any customers here that were actually German. The atmosphere was great and exciting. Very loud with the band but good entertainment. Service wasn't great. It took us 20 minutes to order a beer and we had to track the waiter down. The food was average and the prices... More

Good place to enjoy beer & listen to live mmusic played by traditional band. Due to rush sometimes service can be late. It's open sitting, means any one can sit on any table with any one. Shared table with Mexican group. Ordered just beer as food takes 20-30 min to get served. One large glass of beer costs from eur... More

It's a struggle to find seating for more than three or four people. The crowd and the live band make it impossible to hear conversation. The food is no better than any other place with traditional Bavarian fare. But, it's awesome.

The interior decor of the hofbrauhaus is quite stunning. The food came very quickly and was tasty, the beer was cold and their german oompah band gave it that very traditional feel.

It is the world famous blah-blah... but not worth the crowd & terrible service for a beer & a pretzel. We did stop by in the evening, so it was busy. It felt like a beer-film sticky frat house. Like I said, just walk through to see it & go somewhere and enjoy your company.

Amazing place, great band and atmosphere, excellent beer and good simple menu! The pretzels are amazing and help soak up a few steins! Most of the waiters seem quite rude though and seemed to take an eternity to order another beer! Incredibly hot in summer as no air con!
