Really cool place with typical bayrisch style, music and show. It is full of singing people and there is an atmosphere of cheerfulness. But it is a bit expensive and the staff is extremely rude, I have tried to pay by card and the waiter...get angry.More

This is a must visit place. It is an iconic place. The beers are smooth yet substantive. The place is large and handles large crowds quickly. They do take reservations which may be recommended if it is on the weekend or a holiday.

Visiting Munich and not visiting the Hofbrauhaus is like visiting Egypt and not seeing the pyramids! This is a must-do experience in Munich. Food is decent, atmosphere is awesome!

That is a kind of must go restaurant for seeing the environment, space and during 1l beer of course ! The place is not luxurious but simple. Food is good and service is ok. We got Cordon bleu ( pork ), schnitzel and salmon and...were mostly all ok and well servedMore

We have come here many times over the years. It is the ‘when you go to Munich' people ask did you go to the Hofbrauhaus?’ It is a huge Beer Hall. When you get there, look for seats at long tables. The strangers you meet...at your table will be friends after sharing a liter or more of beer! The food this time was surprisingly better. In the evenings there is a band that plays lively German sing along music. Get in the spirit of the atmosphere as it is a festive experience to enjoy’ (July, 2019)More

A must-see place. Sure, it’s for tourists and you get a cheaper beer somewhere, but the band, service, buzz and grub is all spot on. The setting is nice surrounded by similarly typical buildings and a nice area to walk around.

Despite covid 19 placing restrictions, it was managed well. The place was still vibrant and service as good as the last time we went. The food was delicious and waiting time less than 10 minutes. One of my favourite places in Munich
