Description: Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten brings an authentic biergarten experience to Asbury Park, a tradition that Europeans have enjoyed for centuries - communal tables where friends and strangers mingle in a lively, friendly atmosphere, energized by a regular schedule of live music. The establishment features a 9,000 square foot outdoor rooftop Biergarten and 6,000 square foot indoor hall. We pour 31 premium draft beers and serve over 60 bottles, including American craft beers. The menu is classic biergarten fare with a focus on comfort foods from Austro-Hungaria, flavorful and perfectly executed by Executive Chef James Avery.

The Biergarten is one of my favorite Asbury Park hangouts. The interior can be a bit intimidating with it's chilly concrete walls, two story ceilings, and iron stairways. The staff however, makes up for the buildings lack of warmth. The liter size beer mugs also will soon have you forgetting about any discomfort. The Biergarten, as one might expect, has a large selection of domestic and imported beers on tap. The Germanic food menu is also surprisingly good. The smoked porkbelly, is not to be missed. Trout, and fish and chips are also good selections.
In the summer, the roof deck is a great place to get a drink and hang with friends. The deck looks right over the lake and there is a nice view of Ocean Grove and the malevolent looking Power Plant Tower.

Asbury Park Festehalle and Biergarten is one of my favorite places to go with friends. The owners are awesome, service is great, and the food is outstanding. Their famous pretzels are bigger than your head. Try the Bratwurst served with a delicious German Potatoe Salad. There's often live music and special events. In the fall be sure to check out the best Octoberfest around - SO MUCH FUN.

We have had much better German food than here. Sometimes looks blah and tastes dry. And the prices are not cheap either. Of course good selections of beer. Good live music most of the time. Long waits at the bar for a drink. Good view from 2nd floor.

Nice German style beer hall with a huge selection of beers, German as well as many other types including local craft beers. There is a food menu with classic German fare as well as non-German. For example tonight and for the remainder of March in honor of St. Patrick's they had some classic Irish fare, corn beef, bangers & mash...The corn beef was very good, very tender well prepared. We also had bratwurst which came with German potato salad, this too was very good. Let me not forget we also enjoyed a soft pretzel and potato pancakes. We ordered those as starters. There were four of us and the portions were large enough that you can share. We were there on a busy night but our server was attentive and the food was brought out quickly. Seating is bench style or high tops. You in all likelihood will share a bench with others.
