The Hofbrauhaus... Best beer hall in all of germany I reckon. I was expecting Disneyland like most people but instead I had a great time.
We went during October, and there was not many tourists. People were singing and dancing, the atmosphere was great.
The beer selection was limited, but what was on offer was great. I had an original and the dunkle. Both went down well with my Knusprige Schweinshax'n min Reiberknodel und Speckkrautsalat. (Roasted pork knuckle with potato dumpling & cabbage salad)
Service was great, and it was reletively clean. During the day, the beergarden is a nice place to relax and have lunch.
I thoroughly recommend the Hofbrauhaus. I PITY THE FOOL, that goes to Munich and doesn't visit this place.
Also, try the Roasted Pork Knuckle. You won't be sorry.

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.

My two lifelong buddies visited Munchen and this is the first place on our list of places to go. We ended up frequenting Hofbrauhaus three times during our stay. Wow. We visited Europe in mid to late April. Not crowded anywhere but here. We sampled all of the beers but our favorite ended up being the hefewissen's. This place is so international. We met Germans, English, Australians, Swiss, and Brazilians. The Germans were incredibly friendly and one even brought us soccer tickets for a match the next day. The place was crowded, lively and fun. The oumpa band was playing and the overall atmosphere made it easily conducive to drinking great German beer with friends. One of my all-time favorite places and memories.

What a fantastic place.
Went there on a Friday night and loved every minute. The atmosphere was overwhelming, riding high with the energy of the band and the crowd that overflowed through the hall. The quality was great, and the servers were even better. They were understaffed while I was there, but they were giving it their all with sweat dripping off them to get us our beer in a reasonable time. The selection was simple and excellent and the food was really good too. Not a cheap evening, but very worth it.

I had one of my most enjoyable meals in Germany here.
The restaurant section on the second floor is large and open. Full of old Bavarian style decor and a ceiling trimmed with tracings of paint, the atmosphere is something to behold. Handcrafted 'Hofbrauhaus' chairs offer a classy touch.
The food is absolutely exceptional, as is the beer. My meal, 'Bratwurst Hofbrau style' was delectible, as was the side dishes that accompined it. My friend had ordered Potato Salad as a side and when I asked for one as well the surcharge was a meer 1 euro. The food prices were extremely reasonable from the regular menu. Hofbrau offers daily specials as well. They are excpetionally cheap and the special my friend ordered was very enjoyable.
Service is also quite good. The waiters are prompt, orderly, and extremely friendly. The ones I had spoken to were bilingual and had no hesitations about speaking English.
I throughly enjoyed and recommend Hofbrau for lunch, dinner, or a night of beer and fun.

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've been to Munich several times and I love the Hofbrau house.
Loaded with tourists and locals alike, everyone is friendly and always willing to strike up a conversation. The food and service great, especially considering how much and fast they're churning it out (and if ever in Bavaria, make sure to try a schweinhaxe at some point - it's the pork eating equivalent of sex).
The original German umpa environment, like any such environment it can be dangerous if you try keeping your drinking up with the band, so pay attention how fast it's going down. Otherwise you may get to experience the restroom floor "vomitoriams" first hand.

THE destination that I HAD to visit when in Munich. I got excited just seeing the building. Walking in was the beginning of the experience. Bavarian culture at its finest. The band playing drinking songs, the benches, people from all over the world, good food and the beer made it a sensory bonanza. My wife and three sons accompanied me and enjoyed it so much that we did it again two nights later. The 1L dimpled mugs were awesome. The Dünkel was great. The food was perfect. Pretzels and wurst with the beer just made me happy. Like a kid in a candy store. Granted, the beer selection is somewhat limited but the beer is very good.
Absolutely a must in your beer life. If you are anywhere near Munich, make the pilgrimage and also check out the others in the neighborhood. Ayinger, Augustiner, Paulaner and Weisses are all nearby and worth the effort.

I went to Munich for Oktobterfest in Sept. SO MUCH FUN! I camped out and meet some really cool local german college guys. We went here for a "mass" as they call it. Never heard the word "stein" come out of there mouth once. We got there and it was packed. Life music, chanting, the whole nine.
We looked around for a few minutes for a seat and found a table in the beer garden. It was amazing. I had the Hofbrau dunkel..an entire liter :) The menu is full of great german food aswell as beer. This place is awesome, the most famous beer hall in the entire country. YOU HAVE TO GO!!!

The most famous and biggest beer garden in Munich. When i visited this brew house i was expecting to see lots of tourists and not see the traditional "German atmosphere" that exists in brew houses and beer gardens. I must admit though that i was very wrong. In fact we were the only tourists and the other people were German singing and shouting and getting drunk while enjoying their meals. Service was excellent and the food was simply excellent. I had the Pork and potato dumpling and it was the best dish of food i had in Munich (even better than the Schnitzel at Paulaner). I tried the "Original" beer at the Oktoberfest so i wanted to try another fresh beer of this brewery and i got the Münchner Kindl Weissbier. Excellent beer! A must visit when in Munich.
