I've eaten here on several occasions and the food has always been great. The servers always aim to please and it's in a convenient location off Highway 70 near I-40. My only complaint is their tap broke and now they can't serve the German beer except in bottles.They do have good selections in bottles, but it doesn't taste the same... More

Got there with a group of 8 about an hour before posted closing time on Saturday night. The waitress was very helpful answering any questions. They never rushed us. Food portions were generous for the price. Meal was delicious. If you are in the area and enjoy a good German meal then this is worth your time and money.

This German restaurant could easily hold it's own in a city like New York! Reservations a must to get a table.

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
