Restaurant Review

Zeppelin Hall, without the German speaking patrons, is as close to an authentic German style Biergarten as you will find in the U.S.


This is a huge restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating and spaces where hundreds of people gather to drink beer, eat, and socialize in a festive atmosphere.


The crowd is young and energetic, and is popular with college students and the 21 to 30+ crowd who come in groups to have a unique beer drinking experience.


The food while decent is not the reason you come here unless you crave German style sausages such as andolline, kielbasa, and brat wurst, and other German specialties such as jagerschnitzel, sauerbraten, and beer battered fish.


As in Europe, there are no reservations or seating assignments, you just come in, grab some seats, and step up to the bar and counter to order your beer and food.


Food orders are taken cafeteria style where heavily accented girls take orders and shout them back to the cooks who dish them out to you on plastic trays across a stainless steel counter.


For your beer, head up to the bar and choose from a selection of over 100 beers on tap.


The interior consists of typical old style bar with stools and some long tables, and the main room is huge with polished wood, arching windows, and high ceilings, an enormous bar, a giant television screen, and the seating area that comfortably seats 250 on 30 ft. long communal German Biergarten style tables. This place is not your typical sports bar. There's no jukebox, no DJ, and no flashy lights.


During the warmer months, and especially during Octoberfest, there is a huge outdoor Biergarten almost the size of a football field with trees, beer-branded umbrellas, and long tables, that can accommodate over 800 people.


This is a congenial atmosphere and is a great place to hang out and connect with your group of friends, and meet others. They also allow you bring in board games, cards, etc.


Zeppelin Hall is convent and easily accessible by car and public transportation.


They have an enormous lot for parking about a block away and it is just a short walk away from the PATH terminal from Manhattan.
