Amazing drinks and ambience. Even the crowd and atmosphere is good. Could have slight more vegetarian options for food.
The outdoor seating is fabulous.

Hofbrauhaus is a great place for drinking draft beer. The food is tasty and served in generous quantities. However the sound level is much too high. Hope I am never invited there again.

Thank you for your review. The restaurant does tend to get loud with the music and customers, but it's not typically too bad. I'm not sure what day and time you were here, but we don't get that complaint too often

Authentic German Brau House featuring great food ,great beer, this place was a pleasant surprise and we would return again and again.....unbelievable portions of traditional German fare ,oh so tasty, the wait staff was spot on ,as was the entertainment. This place brought back great memories of our 1st visit to Munich many years ago.

Despite visiting on an EXTREMELY crowded Saturday night, my Hofbrauhaus experience was a positive one. The food was served hot, the beer was served cold, and the wait staff was friendly.

All of the appetizers are EXCELLENT (fried sauerkraut balls = YUM!) and so are their crafted beers. You can't go wrong putting the creamy bier cheese sauce on everything.

The only thing that I disliked was perhaps the wait staff's dress code. Yes, I understand they're trying to keep the German beer maid theme, but it's a bit degrading only seeing the women dressed up in the "traditional" garb with their cleavage pushed up and out. The men on staff are not required to dress in any sort of German-themed costume.

You will feel like you walked onto the set of the movie Beer Fest. It is so lively and so much fun. Expensive but an experience you will not want to pass up. The food is so good!
