Went there for lunch a couple of days ago with some co-workers and will never go back. First the positive part - the food was not bad as German food goes. Now for the rest of it. The restaurant is old and dirty. From the outside it looks like it hasn't been updated or refreshed in 20 years and when... More

Was recently there for Easter dinner and it was good. I have been here several times (birthdays, anniversary, date nights, family in town) and the food never really disappoints. It is not the best German restaurant I've been to, but it's pretty much up there. I absolutely love the ambiance - really charming decor. I also think the prices are... More

Recommended by our hotel, it has been a long time since we have good German food and this place delivers. We all had various types schnitzel or sausage and nobody left hungry or unsatisfied. We are not experts by any means, but from a food perspective the Old Heidelberg seems to deliver.

Having lived in Germany for 3 years, we know what German food and beer should taste like. They get it right at this restaurant. The service was fast and attentive, the food tasted very good and the selection of German beer was impressive. We enjoyed the live music also. It was an easy 3 block walk from our hotel.

My veal Bavarian Schnitzel with cheese was delicious, my husband's lite wheat beer ( Tucher) , and my cappuccino chocolate were delicious! The German live music added much to the atmosphere and dinner- loved it!! Tricky to find though.

Nice place, fun decor and good food. Homemade sausage is good. Schnitzel was delicious, perfectly cooked. Goulash was also delicious and tender. Desserts are homemade.

Try something new and different at The Heidelberg in Fort Lauderdale. Wonderful service in a very Bavarian atmosphere was a great start. The waitress nicely explained the various selections and service was quick and courteous. The Schnitzel tasted exactly as what I had in Vienna! The portion was more than generous. The sides were delightful also. Give this restaurant try... More

On our first stay in a hotel near this restaurant, it was recommended, and since we have no German restaurants in our hometown, we decided to give it a try. We are SO glad that we did, and we have returned on every subsequent stay. Everything we have tried at Old Heidelberg has been excellent. We have especially appreciated the... More

If you like excellent German food you will not be disappointed. The atmosphere was very Bavarian and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
