    Vegan burgers and sausage? I seriously wasn't expecting that. Really really great German food and an electric atmosphere. I hope to come again soon! Get a Jenga game at the front. Absurdity ensues.

    Amazing customer service! They made a mistake with my order and hooked me up complimentary! Then they brought our table an umbrella bc it started to drizzle. TLC makes the difference. Love this place!

    At Frankford Hall, you get all the draws of a regular beer garden - Belgian brews, huge steins, long tables - plus ping-pong tables and Jenga. - © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc

    Ping-Pong by the fire pits with a liter of beer is a popular pastime at Stephen Starr's enormous but chill indoor-outdoor German biergarten in Fishtown, where the crowd drinks out of steins.

    Amazing beers for the value. A liter of grapefruit Hefeweizen for $14? Total steal. Add in the outdoor seating, games and pretzels..this place rocks

    Even in winter, this place is an awesome place to drink. The heat lamps will make you totally forget that it is the middle of December, if the liters of beer don't first.
