Consistently good German food.

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.

Every time I'm home I have to squeeze in to the Heidelberg. Fried pickles and a boot before we hit the town. Great times!

Whenever in Ann Arbor I always make a point to get to this place and enjoy the same thing -- sauerbraten, spaetzle, sauerkraut's s (not too strong which is good), and the potato pancakes with some apple sauce, and usually the apple strudel if they have it. It comes with their house bread. It's all consistently great, excellent flavor--one of... More
