This is the bar I tend to stagger too, after an afternoon at the O'fest, it is just a few long steps from the top of the Fest Site.
This year was no different, as yet again (26th Sept 2006) I returned to check it out.
Friendly, busy and fine Augustiner beers (are there any other sort?)combine to make this a very likeable place.
Waiter service or served at the bar, no problems, although a bit of German helps when out of the normal tourist areas.
Pleasant decor, not overstated, but very Bavarian. Well worth finding while visiting this wonderful city.

Banged in here twice on one day about 10+ days ago. First, after returning from Andechs, I popped in for some OFest bier... then after actually hitting The Fest, I stopped back in for some hot food and another Maß of Märzen...
This place is easily found, either by a 5 minute walk from the Hackerbrücke S-Bahn or from a couple of stops on tram line #19. And, it's only about a 10 minute walk to/from The Wiesn. Next door, to the right, is the actual Augustiner Brauerei. The Bräustuben was formerly the horse stables for the Augustiner bier-wagon horses.
In through the front, there's a door to the left for a small Stube, but turn right instead into the main bier hall. It is a long room from front to back, running parallel to Landsbergerstraße. A long aisle runs from front to rear, with long wooden tables, chairs and benches taking up most of the space on the right. On the immediate left is a kitchen area where food is served up to the waiters, followed by a bar where biers are mostly poured out for the servers, but where you can still stand to quaff one if desired. The bar itself is a semi-circle against the wall, with its own little roof made up of the top part of a copper brewing kettle. At the far left side are shelves with row after row of glasses waiting to be filled with Augustiners beloved golden nectar. In the far left corner is a large, wooden, circular table which, I believe, serves as this Lokals Stammtisch. It is rather dimly lit, overall, though ample light pours in through the street-side windows during the day. Hops are generously hung from the lighting fixtures throughout, as well as some Oktoberfest gingerbread heart cookies. The place was loud and raucous, like a good bier hall, though I don't recall any music playing. And, it might have been my imagination, but I swore it smelled like a barn at times. Didn't drive me away, though! What to drink? Well, I had a couple of the Oktoberfests, but they also served up their Pils, Helles, Dunkles, Hefeweizen and their fabled Edelstoff. All top-shelf! My waiters were friendly and serviceable, all-in-all. On my second visit I opted for some Käsespätzle mit Rostzwiebeln und Salat. It was fan-friggin-tastic! It was only 4.90EU, huge and tasty! (I even have a pic of it, if you like!!). I had a very enjoyable time here, though it's hard to go wrong at any of the 3 Augustiner properties in München.

quite a good find: great, standard beer hall interior; fine food; good service. they had the helles and dunkels vom fass (on tap) and others in bottle (i had the weissbier)
big open space with long wooden benches/tables, many were reserved and there appeared to be a party on the way to (or from) a formal event. the beer selection was, by the standards of someone who frequents the brickskeller, not good. but this is europeand a brewpub. so 5 or 6 options is good
if you're in town, definitely stop in
