The state-of-the-art waterfront venue seats over 900 people and will abide by the venue’s only rule: what happens in Munich stays in Munich. It’s the place where the jokes about uber weiners will be aplenty, memories made with mates will be wunderbar, and the most popular pickup line will be, “Deutsch you want me, baby?”

We have come many times however the service was very poor! We waited 25 minutes for our drinks and then had to prompt the staff to locate them, food order was taken incorrectly and again there was a delay in service despite you not being overly busy

The Munich was loud. Despite having booked, we were told that we had no booking. I had to show the booking receipt from my phone before we were seated.

Our meals went to another table. We found it hard to order our drinks then when we placed the order another order of drinks was taken and we then was doubled up. The band was good but it was very very loud and was unable to catch up with our friends as conversation was very hard to hear. Would be good if the service was better and t wasn’t even a full house!

Got put in the end room then a heap of LOUD people came in for an occasion and were so loud we didn’t finish our meals. They were standing up so had to push our way through. Told the waitress who didn’t seem to care. Have been here a few times and normally fantastic just not happy that our evening was wrecked by this group.

Even after making a reservation, we waited for 10 minutes by the door waiting to be seated. Several staff members passed by without acknowledgment. When we were finally acknowledged, our name could not be found on their booking system, even though we had written confirmation that the booking went through. 2 out of the 4 of us were there to do the schnitzel challenge. It was greasy and salty beyond belief and would not recommend it. On the other hand, the other two meals were good but certainly not great. Table service overall, was good, as was the outdoor atmosphere. Unfortunately, I will not be returning.

A very enjoyable experience. The band was very entertaining and German music is always enjoyable.
Involving the audience was a fantastic idea. would definitely be back for another wonderful experience.

We were all disappointed. Never been here before. If we knew that we would be so close to the music and not be able to hear each other talk for most of the night, I would have asked or should have been advised to have sat much further back. The business needs to be proactive and ask when booking about seating arrangements. If we sat outside it would have been perfect but we didn't and everyone left disappointed

Don't expect the real Bavarian thing.
Like almost every other Brauhaus, this is only another bad imitation of it.

The food and atmosphere were amazing. My nephews really enjoyed the live entertainment. Unfortunately our experience was marred when it came time to pay. We couldn't find a waiter to bring us our bill and when we went to find somewhere to pay we were escorted back to our table. When we finally got someone to come over to the table we were told they wouldn't split the bill for us and the waitress left us to figure out costs before coming back 10 mins later. It really spoiled the lunch.

Issues with the meals. One extra was on the bill.
One was well over priced for the amount on the plate. The manager refunded the cost.

Use of the alpine horn. They need to hear how they are used. Not what they showed made fun not nice.

Band too loud at times and improvised too much.

Gave this place a second chance after a very disappointing experience on my birthday last year and again the service was absolutely terrible. The food is nice but overpriced for what it is. Not much of a genuine German dining or service experience.

The level of service continues to deteriorate. I went to the opening night and have been multiple times per year since then - while the food is consistently good, the service continues to get worse. The staff often have negative attitudes, beers are not available and schnapps always out of stock. The band who were playing on Thursday night before Easter were dismal and did not engage the (small!) crowd at all. At one stage one of them was texting on his phone mid song. Poor form.

Food was great . Service was very poor. We ordered the mac n cheese bowls to share and to start with ( we couldn't decide on mains straight away. When the Mac n cheese bowls where serviced we ordered the mains - 5mins later we haven't even started on the entree the main course arrived.
Nobody checked on us if we like to wait for a couple of minutes in between . It was a Saturday night dinner and not a lunch break where we had to squeeze the whole meal in 30mins .
The waitress didn't put any effort in the service .
We had to wave to get her attention , we had to ask for water , we had to ask if we can order another drink .
At it was not busy in the section we were sitting in.
We wanted to order a shot and dessert but we couldn't get the waitress attention again .So we gave up and asked for the bill.
When the waitress processed the payment no emotions,no eye contact , no questions like how was your evening ? Or are you going somewhere else tonight ?
I am from Germany and that's why I like coming here . The food reminds me on home but the service ruined our night .

Have been a couple of times before to the Munich Brahaus and usually it is very good. The food this time was horrible. Dry chicken snitzel and the sauerkraut...yuk! My friends had the meat platter which meat was dried out also. The service however was excellent.

Was just too loud at times, not conducive of an environment that supports conversation.
