Consider by many people as one of our region and nation's best German restaurants. Pretty good access from US321 and I-40. Worth a trip just to eat there.

Don't get in a hurry when you dine at the Old German Schnitzel House! The food is wonderful and every meal is made to order. The food is authentic and worth the wait! The waiters and waitresses can be coxed to speak a little German. Have the spatzle, again, made fresh to order! Bratwurst and kraut is to die for.

We were in Germany 2 months ago and had so every fine food, however, this place is as good and authentic as it gets! We experienced perfection after perfection starting with the appetizers. We all tried different things so we could sample. Started with the goulash, potatoe pancakes with applesauce, Camembert baked with cheese toast points and lingonberry sauce and... More

It's probably not fair to judge local restaurants with those from EPCOT at Disneyworld, but I must say that Old German Schnitzel Haus serves every bit as great, authentic German fare as you will find anywhere. I go there on occasion with friends and family and I am never disappointed. I usually try to bring some of the ample portions... More

We had a short wait for a table, the food and service were great but it would have been a perfect experience if our waiter had not been SO LOUD wherever he went and was complaining about the hours he had to work for so little money and the previous jobs he had lost. It really just made us want... More

Great place to eat, we tried it at the recommendation of a friend after hearing rave reviews from several other people also. We were not disappointed. Food is great, staff and service is prompt and helpful, and the deserts are out of this world. 5 stars all the way around!

Went to enjoy Valentines dinner. Started with the brat appetizer and it was great. I also had the small salad which is not your typical tossed. It does have some greens but also small portions of beet, potato and cucumber salad. Being a person who appreciates a good salad, I have grown to really enjoy this change of pace. I... More

which basically means, "great food". 14 friends had the idea that we should have a German meal together which we did at the Old German Schnitzel House in Hickory. I have a weakness for German sausages, so...although they did not have knock-wurst or German hot-dogs....I ordered the brat and it was fabulous. Came with German potatoes and kraut. Great food;...

Visited the restaurant recently on a business trip and was pleased with the experience overall. Entering the restaurant on a Tuesday night, I was a bit skeptical because there was only two other tables being used. Yes a Tuesday night in Hickory, but I was a bit nervous. Fortunately, a colleague I was with had been there before and told... More

The minute my husband and I arrived we were warmly welcomed. The waitress explained the menu, and told us the potato cakes were worth the drive. It is an appetizer and there is plenty to share. The waitress was right, the potato cakes were excellent. I had Jaeger Schnitzel with spaetzel, and it was the best I have ever had.... More
