We had always loved this restaurant and went by Saturday to satisfy ourselves that it was closed. There was a construction permit in window, so maybe there is hope that they will remodel and reopen sometime in future. We had found another great German restaurant in Winston Salem (about 70 miles East) which was also great. It is the Old... More

My mother was of German descent, this restuarant was the best food I have ever eaten that tasted exactly like my mother and Oma made. It was all home made and very authentic. I don't know who wrote that about the food(sxtitch2832) but you obivously don't know good food if it jumped in your mouth. I hate that this place... More

Although I was never overly impressed with the food or the friendliness, it was the only German restaurant for miles around. It will be missed (something was better than nothing at all).

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.
