Rambled in late on Sunday evening so we were lucky to get a table to ourselves . Faboulous building! The band was playing and people were enjoying themselves! The pretzels were hugh and the beer was great ... What more can one say about it! A not to miss experience when in Munich .

Where else can you enter a thousand seat beer hall to the sounds of the band, sit down and drink a beer that is twice the size of you head? BTW, it's cheap eats too!

Like most Italian tourists, our first night in Munich we headed to one of the most famous restaurants in the city. What a disappointment! Waiters were rude, the service was sloppy, the cost of water for our children was ludicrously high. The only positive aspect of our experience was the beer and the atmosphere of the place. Probably it's better... More

After black tie do locally we all 'dressed down' for a late night visit. Being a large party we soon created an atmosphere of fun and had a great night with locals joining in..

We visited late afternoon and interestingly there is no host so you just have to wander around to find a seat, which was a challenge and we sat in an ante room which was quite unimpressive, the main hall was busy. We didnt have a great experience, the waitress was moody and unhelpful, the food was OK and expensive and... More

The band played, the patrons took photos, the regulars shunned tourists when they had other regulars to drink with, and we enjoyed a table with two guys of different generations who did not know each other but seemed to enjoy talking over their drafts – one was a regular; the other a tourist. We shared a wurst salad and a... More

If you only have time for one pub visit this is it. Steeped in history, packed with atmosphere. Quite noisy so be aware. How they manage to serve so many so efficiently is beyond me. Excellentm

We made a very short visit as the place was so bustling and busy it was very difficult to find a table ...you just find an available space wherever you can...which gives the place its unique atmosphere. We did eventually manage to get a table but we could not wait the inevitable waiting time for the food as we were... More

Very touristy, of course. I was traveling alone and didn't really want to eat or drink there, but I wanted to see it. It was no problem to go inside and wander around. Fun atmosphere - a band was playing and some people (including some small children) were dancing; lots of beer drinking (from huge mugs) going on!

Great atmosphere, true Bavarian food and drinks. Extremely crowded thus hard to find a spot. Have some food, followed by beers.
