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.

My wife MaryAnn and I along with two great friends Debbie & Tito have dined at Festhalle & Biergarten on several occasions and always have a great time! You must try the Bavarian Brezel to die for so light and crispy! We’ve also have tried many different dishes on the menu, including sauerbraten, Hungarian beef goulash & bratwurst. Just a few items we eat, of course washed down with Hofbrau Octoberfest, Spaten Octoberfest, Spaten Lager, DAB, or Schoffenhofer! All I can say is Geweldig and Proost!!!
They have music and you would swear you were in an authentic German beer hall. A must try for family and friends. Very congenial atmosphere, again Proost

The complete food menu is available downstairs in the restaurant - with traditional German cuisine, including fish and vegetarian choices. We go to the large, three-level roof deck for the best view of the sunset and the colorful houses in Ocean Grove across the lake. Only bar food is available on the roof with pretzels and other snacks. For some reason, you need to buy tickets from the bartender and then place your order at the grill area to get this food.

1st time customer, with friends and business associates. Very authentic German food in a wonderfully restored building. Many traditional and seasonal dishes. Come hungry, leave full and happy.

This is not a sports bar with TVs to watch. This is a large room like a German beer hall with long picnic style tables. There is also a bar area, but the bar seats are small and somewhat uncomfortable. That said, the atmosphere is fun and the food is great. Great beer selection on tap and in bottles, including a great selection of German beer and local craft beer. The service at the bar was friendly and quick. The people next to me ordered a pretzel which was big enough for at least two people. The lentil soup was excellent, as well as the brats. There were two brats that came with sauerkraut, German potato salad and delicious spicy Bavarian mustard. Definitely worth return visits.

I've been to the festhalle on several occasions and I always order the jaeger schnitzel. The pork is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The gravy is super flavorful with a smoked bacon element. The desserts change often and I always try something new. I'm never disappointed! Everything is delicious. I am not a beer drinker, so I always volunteer to be the designated driver. I don't mind it one bit because the food is so good and everyone always has a great time! The views from the roof bar are spectacular too.
