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...More

Really an experience. The tables are set up picnic style inside. They also have a rooftop service in season. The food is often fried and fattening. Having said that the potato pancakes are amazing. The other food is pretty good too. My grandchildren have much...More

Go here often, after spending over 3 years in Germany, I am very critical of places that call themselves Biergartens but this place is as close as you can get to authentic. ..great bier, food and entertainment. ..

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.
