We loved this place! They have great German beer selections and a few craft beers on tap. We ordered the sausage platter and it was divine. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with the bartender. We would definitely go back.

Back again for a repeat visit. I loved the bread plate they placed at our table...complete with c cut up pretzel and mustard! Our party of four each enjoyed a different entree but shared the potato pancake appetizers which you should not miss. Excellent beer and wine selection. If you can't make up your mind on an entree, try the... More

We visited this restaurant last night and I was blown away! First let me say they have beer in Das Boot - which is so much fun. And the beer selection takes up a whole menu of its own. Now on to the food. We started with the chopped salad for two which was actually shared by 6 of us... More

Love their red cabbage, spatzel and schnitzel. We intended to get dessert to share but forgot. Kind wait staff offered to enlarge our table for our group of 11. Parking on street ok, but expect to walk a bit. Limited parking lot.

My husband and dine in this wonderful restaurant every time we are in South Florida (about 4 times per year). There are numerous restaurant choices in this proximity, but Checkers Old Munchen is by far our favorite. The food is consistently top rate, and extremely authentic. My family is from Nuremburg, and I know good German food! Our waitress this... More

We stumbled across Checkers Old Munchen, and decided to try it, and are glad we did. Reasonable prices and generous portions. Wide selection of German beers and wines. The onion and apple soup was delicious. The Jaeger Schnitzel was good, although the onion and mushroom sauce was a little watery. Delicious red cabbage. Good service. We are looking forward to...

Just happened to see the place while driving by. Went there later that night (Christmas Eve) without a reservation. They were pretty full, but got us a table sitting outside. Being from the frosty north, sitting outside in December to eat was a good idea to me. I really enjoyed the place because of the "forced" deal they had for... More

We had reservations to dine for Christmas Eve. They were offering a traditional feast for $25 per person. We started with a glass of Gluhwein which was warming and delicious, then a cup of Gulash soup which was delicious and made me wanting more. Never forget the basket of delicious breads and pretzel. You had a choice of entree, I... More
