Went here over the holidays when visiting in Tulsa. Me and my daughter were looking for somewhere to get a snack and have a beer while waiting for my other daughter to get out of school. Place was pretty much empty due to being mid week and middle of the day. Beer selection is focused on German beer, so if that is what you are looking for, this is your place. They have a sprinkling of American/local beers also. Food that we ordered was good, we got the pretzel and the duck fat fries and they were quite solid. Would think this is the place to be when it is crowded and you are in a party mood.

Wait staff was great.

First time at Fassler Hall. We sat on the patio despite the chilly Autumn breeze. Limited drafts- 10 or 12 taps, mostly German (Spaten, Franziskaner, Stiegl Radler, Warsteiner, Hofbrau, Warsteiner) and some OK brews (Prairie, F5, Marshall).

Good food, particularly the lamb sausage, but pricey. Brews are served in ½ liter ($6) or liter ($12). The patio is nice, but inside it gets a little too boisterous when busy. Fun all around, but I'm not rushing to head back.

Not a good representation of a German beer hall. The atmosphere is German Lite.

The quality is lacking, but the beer selection is pretty good.

The service is spotty

The food is decent, but, if you want a little better German food, go to Siegi's or Margaret's.

This place has the best sausages and brauts in town. The selection is amazing. They have a bunch of handles and bottles. A majority is German stuff, but it's a German themed place. Phenomenal food, great service most of the time, and beer by the liter that isn't too terribly over priced.

Interesting vibe to this place, not really that of a German beer hall other than the long communal tables and beer banners on the wall, more of an open hangar feel. Service was decent at the bar, it's set up to place your order at the bar so don't expect table service. Bartenders had a pretty decent knowledge of the beers they were serving and were quick to offer suggestions and a few sample glasses. The beer selection is mostly the standard line-up of German lagers - Spaten, Hofbrau, Warsteiner, etc. How about some Ayinger and Weihenstephaner? I'd also like to see more American craft versions of German styles. Prices are a bit steep on the beer, most 1/2 liters are ~$6. Luckily I found Marshall's Klaus Hefeweizen for $5, which was a nice value in my book. Sausage and brats are made in-house. Being that it was happy hour I went for the mini-brats with sauerkraut and spicy mustard - delicious. I desperately wanted to sample the pretzels and duck fat fries, which both look and sound delicious, but we were stopping somewhere else for dinner and didn't want to fill up. The atmosphere on a Weds. afternoon was quiet with a laid back afterwork crowd. I'm guessing on nights/weekends it can turn into a hipster haven. Worth a stop, but not somewhere I would hangout on a regular basis.

The previous 2 reviews sum it all nicely.

A lot of hipster vibe here, a touch, be it light of Germany. A nice communal feel to this other than the fact kids aren't allowed. Not a strike against it, just means I will not go there much when in Tulsa.

All beers were fairly fresh other than the Spaten Optimator which had some some stale/dirty line flavor to it.

Selection was fairly good for the theme, the super star was Big Sky IPA which was really nice

Service was alright, I was sitting a the bar, so it should have been

I was full when I walked in, the food on offer is narrow in scope, but looked interesting/tasty

This was pretty pricey for half liters of beers, but it is in a pricey nightlife district...

Worth a visit or 2...

Fassler Hall is located on Elgin just south of 3rd St. in downtown Tulsa. This is a good spot right in the heart of the Blue Dome district, only a couple blocks away from McNellie's.

I like Fassler Hall's concept. It's a spacious, open hall with communal seating at big wooden tables. Concrete floors contrast against the arched, wooden ceiling. Upon walking in, the entire right side is the bar and kitchen area. The bar is very long with plenty of seating. A working garage door at the front of the space will be great for those days when the weather is nice. Live music stage in the back of the room. The lighting is a bit too dark for my liking. Fassler has a good feel to it if you enjoy the new vs. old style.

Selection isn't necessarily fantastic, but there's a few American crafts as well as the usual German offerings to be found among the dozen or so taps. Drafts are sold in .5L increments on up to 2L. Good quality -- I think they'll get enough turnover to keep the beer fresh.

Good service. Patrons not sitting at the bar are encouraged to order at one end of the bar or in the middle -- nice idea; keeps people from ordering over those sitting at the bar. Counter service for food also.

The food menu is all about the tasty in-house made sausages. Duck fat fries are a must. I can't speak for the pretzels, but Fassler has them shipped in from Germany.

Overall, Fassler Hall is a nice addition to downtown Tulsa. Great place to hangout with larger groups.

Fassler Hall is American industrial meets German beer hall. It doesn't necessarily speak German to me minus the massive wooden timber-style tables & the beautiful ceramic taps. I think the multiple sport TV's are kinda out-of-place here and an unwanted distraction from conversation, but maybe a necessary evil? Hopefully as budget allows, they'll finish "fleshing" the place out with decor & fly some flags over the place?

The bar itself is roomy with plenty of room to maneuver around with stein in hand. The beer is a bit pricey @ $$5.5-8 bucks per 1/2L, but a bar patron can order anything from a .25L Pokal-2L Boot! An added touch is that the glasses & steins are rinsed with cold soda water (to bring them to temp & prevent excessive foaming). There's twelve taps serving Ayinger Oktoberfest, Boulevard Wheat, Fassler Bock (a.k.a. Shiner Bock), Franziskaner Hefe, Konig Ludwig Weisse, Marshall Oktoberfest, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Schneider Aventinus, Spaten Optimator, Spaten Oktobefest, Warsteiner Dunkel & Warsteiner Oktoberfest with approx. 30 bottled beers (mostly imported) in the cooler.

The food menu is diminutive, but inexpensive with three types of sausages available along with homeade sauerkraut (apfelkraut) w/ roasted caraway seeds & apples. There's three types of mustards (Düsseldorf, Horseradish & Stoneground) available which are all made in house and paired with the sausages and European soft pretzels. Excellent! In addition, the menu includes homecut palm frites (fries) made excusively with 100% duck fat which are totally awesome! My wish list includes Barenjager, potato dumplings, streudel & schnitzel. Sorry dudes, but there aren't any sexy Frauleins wearing dirdls bringing beers to the table but don't let that stop you from checking the place out. I'll be back!

*Note: 1/2 price sausages on Monday's make this a must stop if you find yourself downtown in the Blue Dome district!
