Great warm potato salad!

Good food. Cozy atmosphere. Low lighting. Plenty of German touches. The wait staff even wear costumes. The potato salad was worth writing home about. I enjoyed my toasted Reuben sandwich and the sausage sampler appetizer.

The lighting is low and the food is to die for. We (as a family and as a couple) eat there often. Birthdays and anniversaries are always celebrated here, I had a paper menu that I marked off so that I have tried every schnitzel they have. I cannot pick a favorite but do recommend the veal Marcella or the... More

Restaurant was authentic German food. Large portions, reasonably priced. The desert was so large that 4 of us shared it.

I spent five years living in Germany and have missed the great food. Traveled recently to Huntsville and found this place. The weiner schnitzel was spot on - tender and just the right amount of crispness. We also enjoyed the cucumber salad (delicious), red cabbage (delicious), German fries (very good), and spaetzle (the real deal!). This place is definitely on... More

Nice restaurant, friendly staff and excellent food, what else can you ask for?! Good German beer selection, even better food (we had the rouladen and one of their schnitzles), and save room for dessert.

I think I've had everything on the menu at least once! Almost always get a Schlachtplatte, a cheese plate(large selection with fruits & breads) & a Black Forest Schnitzel. Never had a problem with any of the staff, their warm & friendly. Excellent choice of beer & wine to wash it all down with! They have a wide variety of... More

Have only been a handful of times but have been very happy with each visit. The food is awesome, the potatoes are absolutely amazing and the desserts are fantastic. Also enjoy the cold German beer.

The Black Forest Schnitzel was fantastic. It was like having Veal Marsala with a German twist. My son said the Bratwurst was the best he's ever had. The food is better than many of the German restaurants we like back home in Chicago.

We've been to Ol Heidelberg countless times over the last 7 years we have lived in HSV and we keep coming back. Finally getting around to a review. Bottom line, its good and quality is consistent. Service is good, beer is good, food is good and if you have room, the deserts are excellent.

Food , service, and ambiance was wonderful! We enjoyed our meal so much the last time we visited Huntsville we had to go back. The men had both spent time in Germany in the military in the 70's and agreed this is about as authentic as you can get in the States.
