Great spot for German food

I had the Assorted platter and it was all very tasty. The staff was friendly. Probably not diet food. Parking is in the back of the building.

Went with friends for some authentic German food at Checkers Old Munchen Restaurant. This place rocks. Great service with great atmosphere. From the beer to the appetizers to the main courses it was awesome. Food quality is over the top. Highly recommend you make reservations when you visit.

The food here is very good. There's only one negative thing about this place. It's very loud!!!! I'm not sure if it's the acoustics or just a bunch of heavy drinkers.

This is my go to place for German Food. The food is good, along with the service and price. I love the potatoe pancakes and my husband likes the German Beers.

To be fair the food is not bad, but used to travel in Germany a lot and its not that Authentic, there always seems to be a damp smell in the place which perhaps unfairly makes me think of it being a bit grubby.

Huge portions and everything great. Service great although sometimes too speedy, especially if ordering two or three courses. Asked for Heineken and they said Bittenburg........and that's been my beer there ever since. Their special shank is the BEST. Crispy, moist, fall apart tender.

Made a reservation for our table of 8 and we were quickly seated. Drink and appetizer orders came quickly and the sausage sampler contained some of the best sauerkraut I have tasted as well as the potatoes pancakes. After that, things were hit and miss. The good: Sauerbraten and red cabbage, the onion and apple soup. Bad: Large tables which... More

I had the veal schnitzel and it was everything I could have hoped for. The mashed potatoes and green beans were also great. The German beer on tap was everything to hope for. Regretfully, I couldn't drink any beer due to other business obligations that day, but I hope to be back to do the place justice. This is as... More

The soup was the best we ever ate. All three of us wished we ordered another bowl instead of our entrée. But then again, our entrée was also great.

prices are not cheap but German surrounds this place very close to what I had in Germany. Excellent German beer and locals have their own mugs on wall to enjoy the beer
