My coworkers love this place so they finally talked me into eating here for lunch. The Reuben was ok but not spectacular and not even warm. I would probably go back again and hope for warm food next time.

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 5 years. I go there at least twice each time I visit Huntsville, AL. The food is authentic, delicious German food. The service is wonderful. Not only are the servers efficient, they are helpful, knowledgeable, and just plain fun. No matter which server is assigned to your table, they will all stop... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We've been to Germany and can say that this restaurant is authentic. The food is wonderful. The restaurant is located in a mall and you really have to look for it. Otherwise, it's just right.

I stopped by today when I arrived from the airport and was pleasantly surprised by the food. I ordered the Schlachtplatte which consists of a choice of three of their four sausages. All were very good, served hot and with boiled potatoes and red cabbage. The menu had the typical schnitzels and German-American fare. This was the lunch menu. I'd... More

Having lived in Germany for several years, this restaurant brought back many good memories. Typical German fare, well prepared. Prices were reasonable - around $20 for most meals, Good assortment of schnitzels and wursts.

While visiting Huntsville, my wife and I decided to try some German Food and selected the Ol' Heidelberg Café based on reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and is fairly easy to find for someone not familiar with Huntsville. The inside was warm and well decorated in a German flavor. The service... More

We ordered a goulash for her and a smoked brat (don't recall the name) dinner for myself. Dinner was preceded by... More

I took a large group of out-of-town business folks and we had the best time. They say they don't do reservations, but they put us down for 12 people. The service (Mary) was fantastic. She was so friendly and funny and offering her expert opinions on beer and wine choices. The food was fantastic as usual, maybe a little pricey.... More
