One of the best places in Munich.
This place is amazing, the service is super fast (20-40 seconds and the beer is on your table), the atmosphere is amazing (along with traditional music that played occasionally), I ordered potatoes too, and they were superb!
No words to explain this place, maybe videos will help...
If you're in Munich - You MUST try this place (I've been there almost 3 hours straight)

I lived in Munich for 5 years. This is THE Münchener Bierhalle. Hofbräu is not the best of the six München Helles lagers*, nor is the Hofbräuhaus the most authentic**, but it has carved out a wonderful place between touristy and legitimate that no other place has.
Yes, there are tourists there. There are also locals in droves. The locale is close to Marienplatz but you'll have to venture north into Schwabing for the newer, cooler Munich.
No trip to Munich is complete without a visit.
* Augustiner Helles is the best Munich Helles. Tegernseer is even better though from further south in Bavaria.
** The Löwenbräukeller can't be beat for authenticity and ambience awesomeness.

Great place, good food, and plenty of freshly brewed beer. At first it seems a bit touristy, but after while you find yourself talking to complete strangers from all over the globe. Don't expect to get off cheap either, but I would gladly invest in the experience again.

Everyone has to go once for the experience. Had a liter of Hofbrau Original and a liter of Funnel, and both were fresh, crisp, and delicious. Even in January the service was spotty and slow. My wife and I each ordered weiswurt, but for some reason we only received one order. That being said, the atmosphere of the place was enough to make it worth the visit, and the other diners were warm and friendly as could be. We will certainly return.

Spent a hot summer evening here during the 2013 heat wave. The atmosphere is amazing- a bit chaotic and packed but also jovial and friendly. If you want to go to a bavarian beer hall then you will find what you're looking for. Lots of tourists- but hey, you're probably one to them so stop whining. The beer is great. Service is good too- better than you'd expect given the chaos inside. Descent selection of their beers- about what you'd expect if you've been to some of other places in Germany. Food was delicious and there was lots of it. Lots of fun for any beer fan.

It may be the 'tourist' thing to do in Munich, but it is worth the visit regardless. Very light hearted atmosphere, excellent beer, the food is good. The service was spotty, particularly in the central beer garden. Service on the second floor was better and less crowded.
We sampled several of the menu items, things were good though nothing really jumped out at us as above and beyond. More importantly, the beer is pretty outstanding.
All in all, a very good value and a nice place to relax and take in some very good beer.

This is obviously a must see while in Munchen. Many tourists , food is not good at all. I have been to some smaller beer gardens in Germany that have amazing food. They had entertainment ... very enjoyable. I went with my wife and sister-in-law. We had a good time and i got a steine. Like i said you must go just to say i have been.

Well, you have to do it. But it's overpriced for the food and the beer you get. However, the atmosphere is totally German, despite the abundance of tourists. Be prepared for walking around looking for a table, and possibly sharing one with other folks. It's a good experience overall, but there are definitely better establishments in Germany.

Welcome to Munich! We went in thinking "beer hall" and it was exactly that and more. Great lively Bavarian band, traditional serving maids and German foods. The locals were super friendly and helped us translate the menu and the fun and it was a great time.

You can tell this is a tourist place. None the less, there's a reason why so many people want to come here. From the bavarian live band to the delicious food and bavarian dressed waitresses, you do feel like your in the quintessential beer hall, which I suppose you are. It's great. I was there over the Euro Cup to watch a game with some of my buddies and we had a great time. The stuff is somewhat given the tourist price, but that's to be expected. Their food is to die for. Boiled potatoes and pretzels that will blow your mind. You have to get the big mug of beer and make sure to take pictures. Welcome to Munich!
