Food is decent but not real German.

Food is ok and labeled German but the chefs are Mexicans and the food just dosn't cut it with people who know and love real German food. Their bier taps were out of commission the day I was there so had to drink bottled Weissmuller (wheatbier) that was at least 3-4 months old. I had to teach the... read more

Our family really enjoyed their meals. The sauerkraut and red cabbage are delicious. The sausages are good too and my shrimp lover is still raving!

I didn't really know what to expect here because it just looks mostly like a bar, but when it's a German place they always have food too... I'm not a beer drinker, but I do like German food and this place has food as well as a large selection of beer. The decor inside is like an old German place... More

We are always looking for something new and got a groupon for this place that included an appetizer and 2 entrée. For the app we got the cheese and meat platter. It was pretty good along with the 2 small bread rolls and hot mustard it made a nice sandwich . I got the sauerbraten which was tasty and the... More

Heidelberg never disappoints, the German food is authentic and the service is good. I wish they had a better selection of Pilsner beer.

This place is so bad. Terrible owners. They are rude and corrupt. I would never eat here. They should close their doors.

Get yourself a boot of Warsteiner or Two Hearted. Just do it. Nice atmosphere. Don't break the boot. Share it with a friend if that doesn't bother you.

By far the worst experience I have ever received from a bartender. I myself am in the restaurant industry and have pretty low expectations for a basement bar, but this was just terrible! The bartender on shift swore at me when I asked about extra charges on my bill and said I didn't order vodka shots, tell me "I guess... More

The Heidelberg is a wonderful, authentic, german food restaurant. They bring you fresh bread and butter at the table. The Wiener Schnitzel, Rouladen, Sauerbraten, and Beef Stroganoff are all marvelous. The red cabbage and potatoe pancakes are also great. I love this resturant, it's a special treat to eat there!

The bar is great and so are the staff. It is easy to have a conversation with them, when they are not busy. The crowd usually comes in around 10:00pm, once other restaurants close down. You are likely to see familiar faces if you visit more than once as this place is a local favorite. I do have to say... More
