    Pork knuckle was great. Beer was great. Pretzels were the size of a small child. Be prepared to sit with strangers but that's part of the fun. Great experience and a must see if you're visiting.

    Tried the roasted pork chop and it was tasty, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Get sauerkraut with it, it is quite fat. Don't wait to be seated, just go and grab a seat. Very crowded.

    A must do once in your life (at least!). Get a pretzel from the pretzel girls, listen to the oompa band, order a schnitzel, and enjoy the beer (I loved the Dark Radler in particular).

    Good place, yes it's touristy & loud but still fun. The pork knuckle, veal sausages & big pretzels are great. Dunkel beer is the BEST!! I do NOT recommend the apple strudel, MUCH better other places.

    Definitely a MUST GO! 🥨🍺Try pretzels and white sausage -truly delicious!👍🏼At 18-00 Bavarian band starts playing live music so quite difficult to find places, come earlier. Amazing atmosphere!

    Best Pork Knuckle I've ever had with 1L Radler! Best combo. Friendly service. Lovely locals who helped me get service & order while we shared a communal table. Very busy. Large grp should book table.

    No trip to Münich is complete without a visit here! Find a spot amongst the many communal tables. The schweinshaxe is a firm favourite, but it’s best to share if you don’t have a big appetite!

    1st floor is much better and quieter, also with great Bavarian music playedSchweinhaxe is good here!Don't miss the Blaukraut as side dishTheir own-brewed Hofbräu Dunkel dark beer is AWESOME!

    The best fish soup ever and the first time ever I saw so many people gathered at a single place! The way those guys work reminds a factory production - from the meals in line to the flying waiters!

    Among all historically significant details related to this place, the coolest thing is that there is a separate room with personalized beer glasses of some, so called, members of Hofbräuhaus.

    Great beer! Very spatious place with good live music. Best ti spend the night in the center of Munich with friends or family. A little bit expensive but worthy 😉

    If you want to try bits of different things - go for cheese+meat platter, which is huge and delicious, rather than sausage one that has only 4 usual pieces. Weiss radler is awesome for non-beer lovers

    Yes, very touristy, but in a charming way with great atmosphere. Centuries-old beer house with great service and good food. The main room is stunning!

    Come in and realize you haven’t been in a beer place before. The best beer in the whole world. Sausages (all types) are a best pick, if you’re not a fan of German cuisine.

    Love this place. Food is good & you can't beat the atmosphere for a true Bavarian experience.Very crowded and may have to circle hall a few times to find seats.Don't be shy as you can share tables.

    An essencial in Munich. Bavarian tradition & history. Live music, funny place. Order a pretzel + some beers and shout "PROST!" when make a toast! Don't forget to go upstairs, at least to have a look!

    They might say this place is a tourist trap, but I had a great time: wonderful beer and food, fair price, decent service. Try blaukraut and a potato cake called knödel. 1st floor = no crowd.

    Huge beer hall, always crowded and you share the table with completes strangers but that's part of the charm. A traditional band plays music and the food is great too. A must visit in Munich.

    Leave your hipster cool at the door and come in to have beer chugging singing fun! Order pork knuckle, obstler shots, pretzel, say prost, sing, drink and be merry. Tourist trap? Whatever! Fun!!

    The beer is better than other places or beer-gardens in town. The atmosphere is very "Bavarish" and also they have live German Music played by a band

    An obvious tourist spot but still worth seeing. I suggest catching a beer there during the day and then heading to a less touristy Biergarten like the Augustiner at night.

    First place in Munich we had dinner at. Seat yourself (you can ask other patrons to share their table when busy). They have English menus. As well be ready to order when they come.

    These people drink gallons of beer! They make Americans look like wimps. Great to visit during any World Cup. Amazing atmosphere of football fans. Everyone is friendly. Tip to Americans... Don't tip.

    The place is really nice, the dishes are delicious and so is the beer! But make sure your order has been made properly, I was fooled by a waiter for 40min and had to ask to another one for a pint.

    A brilliant Bavarian experience. The steins of beer and pork knuckle were a winner. Cracking band playing throughout the evening. A must visit when in Munich.

    One of the best restaurants in Munich. Sit downstairs in the "Schwemme" for the real Bavrian HB feeling, or go upstairs to the equally authentic, quieter restaurant. Same kitchen! All food is great

    Be aware it is expensive here. Although I recommend the ruß’n to drink. It is a white beer with lemonade. Also don’t wait to be seated, you seat yourself where ever you want. ask for English menus

    Don't be shy! Grab a table and the waiters will come to you. They take card here, but the pretzels that are carried around the room by the waitresses are cash only!

    personal favorites: hendl (either half with potato salad or quarter with a delicious salad), leberknödelsoup, haxn. get a side of reiberknödel! The apple strudel is a MUST for dessert - best Ever

    Huge beer hall, the must-go place when in Munich. Home for the world-famous beer HB, make sure you've spotted the toilets BEFORE you start drinking. Too bad there's always plenty of tourists...

    THe big Oktoberfest-style pretzels sold in the Schwemme by pretzl-girls are delicious. Kitchen is open till midnight or later, though a smaller menu is offered after 10pm. Get chicken and apfelstrudel

    Good atmosphere and great live band. Food is ok. The term crackling we thought meant crispy pork skin, which it was not. The schnitzel was not as crispy as expecting.

    The building itself is beautiful and they have a traditional band which makes for a nice atmosphere. Service isn't great and the food is below average. Augustiner HBhaus is significantly better.

    It's a must if you are in Munich even if it's crowded and all tourists come here, also for the shady history in the 1930-s

    Good city center alternative to beer houses at the Octoberfest Grounds, Theresienwiese where its difficult to get in especially when you are late during the day. Octoberfest food with live band.

    This is centrally located icon and a must for visitors. There is a shop for souvenirs whether you drink there or not. The atmosphere is pure fun and enjoyment
