    The décor is very typical and pretty but Munich is filled with breweries in this genre, however food is very basic for the price charged and the service is HORRIBLE! The waitresses must be of those nostalgic for the 1940s, or so they are guardians of the day and waitresses prisons at night (Dachau is not far from Munich). Avoid at all costs, except for the masochists may...

    I was often in the old Hackerhaus guest. The meals meet the typical local dishes. In addition to a fresh side salad, I enjoyed one of my favorite dishes, a Sauerbraten with dumplings. Unfortunately, my stomach had no place more for an Apple Strudel with vanilla sauce... For that I promised myself a drink for digestion. Here, you can just keep the shot glass as a souvenir. A nice gesture... The service is also original: directly, briefly and barely in the communication and still welcome if you are looking for the conversation. All dishes served surprisingly fast, but flavorful and made absolutely good quality. The premises are decorated with famous Bavarian faces and objects from the history of hacking Pschor although slightly dark, but tastefully. The old Hackerhaus is a secure value and recommended if you want to enjoy good Bavarian cuisine.

    We have been here more than once and we always enjoyed. Very fast service, great food and a wide choice on the menu of traditional Bavarian dishes, average prices in Munich. Indoor and outdoor seating. Unfortunately within no AC and in summer is a problem.

  • Made it through #5 on Rick Steve's suggested city walk before our 2 year old said he was hungry. My wife picked the first place in this swanky mall area. Food was very good. Lamb stew hit the spot. Wiener schnitzel was also good. Nice rustic atmosphere. Prices are on the high side.
  • Normal tasting food and so so service. But the service was pretty quick I got my food in 10 minutes from seating down here. Seating outside is very nice. Can feel downtown Munich a little bit.
  • If you're in the middle of Munich and want a big, rambling beer house with good food, this is a good place. So much space it's good for kids. Downside: staff are a little icy, though they are quick and helpful and, I think, perfectly fine. Predictably expensive, given the location. I'm grateful to this place for saving what was about to be a damp squib of an evening by providing big plates of schnitzel and some large beers quickly.
  • They treated us excellently. They served good food, good beer and took care of helping with our baby. Excellent.
  • Tourist scam! Paid 9.80 for a Beer (Radlermass). That's close to Oktoberfest prices. Quite some attitude, rudeness and icy service. Refused to accept credit card below 30 Euros and made me feel like a fool as I even dared to ask for it. Sort of rediculous at a prime tourist location in 2017. Won't return. I'm local btw.
