Excellent German food and so many German drafts and beers!

My wife and I had lunch at Checkers Old Munchen this afternoon and we were so happy with our choices. I had the combination appetizer which included 2 potato pancakes, knockwurst, bratwurst, sauerkraut and red cabbage salad. My wife had the schnitzel with 2 sides, 1 was the red cabbage salad and... read more

Love the food here. Portions are the biggest you'll find anywhere. One of my favorite restaurants in South Florida. For a complete review of Checkers and more restaurants in Pompano Beach, go to PompanoFun.com

As a local, I've been here many times & I really enjoy this place. I love the beer selection and the food is fantastic. Best German food I've had outside of Germany! Service is great typically. Food comes out fast and steins are never empty. There is one lady there that is a bit rough around the edges when it... More

Nice selection of German beers and wine. Served in half and full liters if you want the "boot". The wife and I both liked our entrees. Beware: No Kids Menu Very good waiting staff that looked after each other's tables if in need.

Great dining experience. The food is wonderful. We shared an app of fresh homemade liverwurst with cheeses and breads. Entree was beef roulade with red cabbage and spatzle which was absolutely delicious. We shared both app and main course and was unable to finish either one. The portions are large enough to satisfy any taste. Service was excellent, very professional.... More

I was here for dinner with several friends. The occasion was to say good by to an old German friend of ours who was leaving for the summer. We had a reserve table which you always need as this place is always packed. The food and service are top notched and the wait staff is very knowledgeable of the real... More

Whoever wrote the "worst of the worst" should stay out of resturants because they have NO TAST. This is one of the best German Resturants I have been to in the USA or Germany. I have taken native German guests who have also given it good grades.

If you like German food and/or beer, this is the place for you. The food is excellent authentic German fare. It is very reasonably priced. The owner Mat, and wait staff are delightful. The dining room is small, so you may have to have a drink at the bar or try calling ahead for a reservation. There are also a... More

We always make a point to eat there when we come to Pompano Beach in March. The food has always been very good and the portions are large. Always wanted to try dessert but never have room. The restaurant is small and fills up fast. Would definitely recommend making reservations.

It's a shame how one bad experience can ruin a place for life. I took my husband there years ago for his birthday dinner. I don't remember much about the food or the service. But when I tried to give my credit card to pay the bill, the waitress told me they could only accept cash. How embarrassing that my... More
