Slightly overwhelmingly large industrial space, designed (I think) to resemble a German beerhall for the Oktoberfest! We were attracted by the promise of a variety of artisanal beers. The drinks menu delivered on that promise, and our waitress new each of the offerings in detail,...More

The atmosphere overall is very chill. Inside, there are large wooden tables with benches throughout, as well as wooden barrels to sit and eat and drink at. My go-to drink is a rosé cider. My go-to food is either a soft pretzel or baked brie....More

The bier is great, being Austrian, it's Stiegel Brau time for me (lager from Salzburg ), pretzel and wursts spells out "Gemuetlichkeit ", it's totally Biergarten culture, Prost/prosit

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.
