Brauereigasthaus Zum Stift with a view to Baslika St. Lorenz, an ideal place for late afternoon sitting outside under sunshades with friends, weinzenbier and excellent food from Bavarian classics. Very helpful and smiling waitresses in Bavarian folk costume, a wide range of dining and beverage menu, high capacity and clean Restrooms in the basement. Selected specialty "Offenfrischer Schweinekrustenbraten an Dunkelbiersoße,... More

We stopped by this typical Bavarian brewery restaurant expecting some good schnitzels but were totally disappointed. The place seems to be in the center of town next to the stift and residenz but it really did not impress even though we enjoyed the ambiance of the place, The schnitzel meat was overcooked and did not taste good considering this is...

Getting typical bavarian food is worth going there. Variety on the menue is good and the value for food and beer ist great. Sitting in the Biergarten is awesome, especially on warm nights. Try it, you won't be disappointed

This place looks and feels like a typical Bavarian hostelry. Despite the large size of the main room, the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. As the evening progressed many of the tables were taken by people drinking or playing board games etc. The food is certainly not adventurous but the choice is wide and the servings are generous. Our waitress,... More

From the rudest possible welcome (after spending a few minutes standing, trying to catch a waiter's or the owner's attention, the only English speaking member of staff received me with "What do you want?", and they appeared even reluctant to seat me), to the very modest food, to the final refusal to accept a EUR 15.6 payment by credit card...

We met an old friend for an afternoon visit at the Stift. My husband came here 30 years ago as a regular. It is still a great local spot with good food at good prices.
