Atmosphere - I went on a Saturday night, mostly a 21-40 crowd. Not really BA crowd if thats what you are going here for. I would also recommend coming here with a group.

Quality - The place is brand new, with huge tv's inside and plenty of seating inside and outside.

Service - For as crowded as it was, I was able to get a beer pretty quick and there were only 2 bartenders pouring. The were also quick to clean empty glasses outside too.

Selection - Mostly European marcos you aren't going to seek out any beer. The only American beers are Smuttynose, Bluepoint, Abita, Riverhorse. I didn't see a bottle list, the website is pretty up-to-date regarding the draft list

Food- Only had the wings, which were really good, i would like to try more of there offerings. Went back had the sausage sampler which was ok, spicy slaw was good.

Valve - $5.00 for a pint of anything on tap
$10.00 for a stein of anything on tap
$15.00 for a pitcher of anything on tap, you really can't beat that.

This place is walking distance from my house so I can't beat the location. The prices are very fair, it is billed as a German beer garden so I can't knock their selection that much. I would like to see more craft offerings from the US (local) and Belgium seeing as how many taps they have.

Nice fenced in area but it's still in the middle of Jersey City.

Many beers on tap from Germany and more recently, American craft examples.

Food was pretty standard German pub food. Pretzel was okay. Sausages were okay.

You have to serve yourself beer and food which is a semi-pain, but there were no lines at 4pm.

Big 32oz mugs are obviously the highlight, but be smart and don't get anything too strong or you'll fall asleep on the Light Rail going home like my buddy did.

During Oktoberfest and when they have the MaiBock (May Beer) festival they have bands which is pretty cool, but I wasn't able to attend so I can comment on their quality.

Place is a good place to spend some time especaiily with a large group. Big fan of the tables. Very large beer selection, however, I feel they should have some real German beers on tap considering that it is a Beirgarten.

The food is not very good at all. The wursts are deepfried and not very tastefull. The big pretzels are good tho.

Great large outside area. Great place to drink day or night. The few behind the fence nees to be cleaned up. The parling situation is not too bad there is a parking lot a block away.

The inside area is very large as well with two different rooms. The front room is a smaller room with TV's to watch the games. The bacxk room is very large with plenty of seating. However, sometimes parent like to bring their kids to the bar and you can have a few kids running around which can be annoying. It is a big enough place to ignore the kids tho.

Once thing I don't like is that they serve the beers in plastic mugs. You end up chewing on peices of plastic that fall in your beer. The secret is that they have glass mugs under the bar. All you got to do is ask for a glass mug and the bartender will give it to you.

Zeppelin hall is locaed near the light rail and is a few blocks away from Skinner's loft and Iron Monkey.

Overall review is that I've been to better Beirgartens.

I visited Zeppelin Hall during Halloween, and as it was pretty cold that night there was no one sitting (or standing) outside. It was fairly early on in the evening and there weren't too many people inside either. Still, my wife and I had a fairly hard time getting to the front bar to order a beer. The beer list was very good, but not amazing; and the service was friendly and smiling but basically "What do you want? And tell me now or I'll walk off.", which was somewhat expected.

After having received our beer and taking in the decor and character of the front bar we decided to move inside to the Main Hall. One of the first things I noticed was the security. We passed 4 "officers" on our way to find a spot at a table, and I saw at least 4 more in passing within just a few minutes. They seemed riled-up and ready for action. Maybe that was because it was Halloween, but I somehow doubt it. The crowd seemed mainly made up of younger, college aged guys, and I'm guessing they get a lot of trouble.

My wife went to the window to order some food and I dropped downstairs to the pisser. The bathroom was very odd, and it seemed almost set up to accommodate cleaning because of all the puke and piss that would be sprayed about it during the evening. Hmmm. Not good.

My wife thought her food was OK, but not great; and it was pricey, but the beers were cheap. OK, I can live with that so we had another beer and listened to the band getting set up. I'd have liked to have hung around a bit more but the people at the table we were sitting at were really boring, and we decided to just get out of Dodge and head north to the Pilsener Haus & Biergarten in Hoboken.

Overall it's a nice looking place with a wood bar, wood floor, and fireplace out front, but it's a little more bland inside the main hall. Still, it's OK looking... it's as you might expect it to be. The outside is nice though, and I'm sure it's pretty pleasant in the summer so I'll consider returning to give it a shot then - but two things that really bothered me are the security officers and the plastic mugs - it's just a little too amateurish for me.
