The wienerschnitzel here is simply the best - and I've had it in German restaurants across the country. The atmosphere is fun and quite "German," and the service is outstanding. Appetizers, especially the potato pancakes, and side dishes were all excellent. Not a bad thing to say about the place, except it's too bad they don't have a branch in... More

we really loved this place. Having lived in germany for 4 years we are spoiled and were very happy with this place. Food is fresh,authentic and delicious. Johan,our waiter was terrific and the singer/accordian player was great. Will go back when we are in town again. My goulash was the best I've had anywhere

We wanted to eat German food on our vacation so we went New Year's day. The restaurant was busy and the waitress were over worked and understaffed. The food was not up to taste, nice portions, but have had better. Setting was good. Probably will not go back.

I am a seasoned travel professional. We literally stumbled across this "Gem" during a stayover in Ft Lauderdale. We sat at the bar. They had a BIG viewing screen, wonderful background music, an accommodating bar staff and the food was better then I've had in most cities in Germany. Monica was a delight and the beautiful Yvonne made us feel... More

What can I say, if you want German cooking this is the place to go. Not fair for me to judge as I am not a big fan of a German menu. Every time I go to Germany I have the same reaction that I have to this restaurant, it just not my favorite type of food. it has been... More

We were here prior to our crusie departing at our hotel's recommendation. Within walking distance, street darkly lit so we called the shuttle for return as crossing a 5 lane road in the dark was daunting. Our waitress was nice--a bit slow at the onset but improved. There was live music but it was too loud, hard to converse. My... More

We found this gem of a restaurant (Old Heidelberg) while we were stopped over in Fort Lauderdale. It is a very short walk from the Holiday in Express. We arrived on a Friday night and the place was very busy. The staff wear authentic German outfits. We were seated quickly and had problems trying to decide what to eat, as... More

Been making a yearly pilgrimage with the Ohnmacht family for over 20 years. ALWAYS a great experience whether the cook has a bad day or great. Hoist a stein or a boot but enjoy the gemütlichkeit, music and consistently good times!

We were advised to go to another restaurant across the street; we went there, it was loud, cluttered, and not a place for us. On the way back to our Hotel, we passed Old Heidelberg before dinner time. We entered, occupied but no full, and met the bartender who made us feel very much at home, served up very good... More
