But here's the secret, go to the Bräustüberl, which is in the Hofbraeuhaus. If you are looking at the main entrance of the building (by the souvenir shop), look to the left. Go inside the doors and up the stairs. On the second floor is the Braeustueberl. You'll get excellent service, the same menu as downstairs, in a quieter atmosphere. Sure, walk through the main level, take a few pictures, then go upstairs. Trust me.
