Restaurant Review



The Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten is modeled after the biergartens that are popular throughout the Austria and Hungarian regions of Europe


This huge two story festive venue is set in an old renovated warehouse that includes a 6,000 sq. ft, 250 seat, indoor hall and a 9, 000 sq. ft, 450 person capacity, outdoor roof top biergarten.


The decor is industrial chic. The renovation used a lot of reclaimed construction material from European factories including, doors, shutters and wood. New materials used have been distressed to look old,


The festhalle & biergarten feature long wooden communal tables where friends and strangers mingle as they dine, drink & sing along to the live Austro-Hungarian band & rock music.


To enhance the festive atmosphere they serve over 100 varieties of popular and hard to find imported and domestic beers.


The food menu sizes grange from small platters, entrees, and kids menus, that include soups, salads, wursts, sauerbraten, weiner schnitzel, desserts, and more.


Asbury Festhalle is open seven days a week;

Monday through Friday from 4 pm until 2am, Saturday and Sunday from noon until 2am.


Child friendly with a Kinder menu
