This place is great. Designed like a courtyard, they have several tables with chairs in the middle with the bar on one side and a place to order snack type food on the other side. Ping pong tables are spread throughout the bar with cornhole at the very back. The bartenders are excellent and help you pick out the best... More

I'd tried to come here for lunch a few years ago, but I didn't do my homework -- on most weekdays, the place isn't open until 4.00! By chance, I ended up heading in this direction yesterday, and decided it'd be a good time to try the place. I was a bit surprised. It's set up like a German beer... More

My family took me here as a birthday present. I've spent a lot of time in Germany, especially Bavaria, and I have tried a lot of their beers. They have several of the better Bavarian beers on tap here. Also food and atmosphere are somewhat reminiscent of a small biergarten. Zum Wohl!

Frankford Hall (a Steven Starr restaurant)is set up as a modern beer garden. The outside is comfortable, sitting (and eating) at wooden tables, with many space heaters on and being refilled constantly. Draft beers feature some local and some German and can be gotten in huge 1 ltr. mugs, Like they are served in real German beer gardens. I thought... More

It's a good place to hang out with friends or family. The outside area is very nice and there are bonfires during fall. Good choice of German beers and food, don't look for more though.

Everything about Frankford Hall is great. The food is amazing, and they have a great selection including various types of sausages with a vegetarian option. The pretzels and dip are a must! Aside from the food, the assortment of games from ping pong to Jenna and liter size beers, this place will please everyone!

Great spot to casually drink with friends for the night. Love the firepits and ping pong tables. Food is good enough for people that are drinking - not spectacular if you're not drinking. Only downside - lots of frat bros trying to be cool, and long lines on weekends.

So fun! Loved the fire pits and benches. Great, casual crowd. Good beer selection on tap and in bottles. Not knowing a lot of them, I just ended up telling the bartender what I liked and he Instantly had 3 recommendations and descriptions to share and was very happy with my selection. German snacks are for sale (Weiner schnitzel, pretzels... More

Really cozy place with an excellent bar, interesting food-truck style menu and an amazing open air, family friendly yard to enjoy your food and drinks in - what more could you want? How about ping-pong and corn hole and Jinga as well? Really fun place!!
