Great German food. I had the pork shank there last Monday. Excellent!. The service was great. Waiters, waitresses and bar ternders all always very freindly. The owners are usually there to greet the customers. They go out of their way to make sure you are having a good time and the food is prepared the way you like it. They... More

I love the atmosphere here! Some parts the tables are a bit tight so walking around is tough. It is a hit or miss with the waitstaff but this trip it was a positive. Love the schnitzel, jaeger one is excellent. Portions are very good. I feel like I am in a cabin in Germany enjoying a family dinner. Yummy.

Quite enjoyed our dinner here before we left on a cruise. I had the Jaegerschnitzel and it was prepared very well and was very tasty. Husband had the sausage plate and liked it a lot. Brother in law had a steak and said it was ok. My sister in law ordered the salmon because that's usually a safe dish for... More

The food was good as always with the exception of the apple strudel which she served us cold and not hot. Our waitress Katrin was very rude to us the entire time. She served 2 people the wrong dinner, something they did not order, and argued with them for almost 5 minutes about it and would not change it, insisting... More

Like German beer? This is the place. At Happy Hour, buy two beers and get free food. When we were there they had free meatloaf, rice and gravy. It was delicious. Of course we had to add on some potato pancakes and apple sauce which was also great. They have an extensive menu of traditional German including a lot of... More

The food is true German cooking. We each had the schnitzel. It was prepared and cooked to perfection. The serving size was good and the price was moderate. The restaurant decor closely resembles German Cafes that I have dined at in Germany. Very authentic in every way! We will be back the next time we visit Fort Lauderdale!

Only place I know of in the area to get good German food. The food is consistently good, portions are large, and drink prices are reasonable for the area. Large menu selection - my favorite is the Jaeger Schnitzel entree with potato soup starter. Their desserts are good too. Not a particularly fancy place - decor is dated and could... More

I am not an expert on German food, but we ate here today for Thanksgiving. It is hard to find a decent place to get a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner here in Broward County, but Old Heidelberg fills this need quite well. The turkey, gravy, stuffing, sweet and mashed potatoes were excellent. The pumpkin soup was great and my appetizer of... More

Had to send an order of liver and onions back, was not edible , the schnitzel and the sausages were ok. The waiter was not pleased that an order was sent back.
