Wow, even with our seat belts on, last night's visit here was a bumpy, bumpy ride. Emotions went from irritation, to incredulity, to anger, to resignation, to a feeling of admiration for the single waitress who did everything she could to make this mess at least manageable. One of the reasons we came to Hickory was to eat at this... More

The food was fantastic. Very rich flavors and good size portions. The female owner of the restaurant was not very friendly. There are a lot of neat items to see inside the restaurant. This would be a 5 star restaurant, Minus one star for the abrasive female owner.

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
