For an authentic afternoon or evening, hit the Augustiner-Keller. It's just a couple blocks from the traine station. Mostly set outdoors with picknick tables.
Lots of German foods to be tasted, great local color, beautiful place to have an outdoor beer and dinner or lunch.
Very much an outdoorsy German feel with lots of locals.
Sample many Ausustiner beers and also wines.
You'll find friendly locals to chat with and have a beer.

I would not visit during poor weather as its mostly outdoors.

This place is walking distance from the main train station. Great selection of beer, efficient service and very good Bavarian food to go with it. It is a huge beer hall with one of the oldest and probably the only independent brewery in Munich. I had a combination of pork chops, crispy duck and sausages in the Bavarian gravy with red spiced cabbage and a potato ball. Not sure about the potato ball, but everything else was very good. An experience to be had while in Munich.

My (21 year old) son and I have walked over to Marienplatz several times, but this time we headed to the other side of the train station to try the Rick Steve's recommendation of Augustinerkeller. The previous night we were at the infamous (and larger) Hofbrahaus. How do they compare? Augustiner seemed to have more locals and was "warmer". Hofbrahaus is a multi-story but history entity that has a souvenir store! It is in a convenient touristy area and the Hard Rock is across the street. Both have the authentic feel when you get in. Service is GREAT at both. Food wise, I think Augustiner offered more traditional and heartier plates and didn't charge for pretzels! Of course, they are a tad more expensive.

Both servers were very good and appreciative of the extra $ we gave as a tip. Not mandatory in Germany but really appreciated (so yanks, give 10-20% and make someone's day!).

This is by far my favorite beer hall in Munich (I'm talking about the original, not the satellite locations throughout Munich). I visited in December 2012. Here are some factual observations:

1. GO DOWNSTAIRS!!! The upstairs is neat, but the old cellar rooms are VERY COOL!

2. I liked the beer and food here very much. The goulash is very good.

3. This place was definitely not a busy as the Hofbrauhaus, but that is a good thing. We still sat with other people, and there were some slightly rowdy people, but nowhere near as crazy as HB.

Fantastic night out! Thousands of people drinking beer and listening to oompah bands - feels like we had an authentic German experience!!
