“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2014 NEW

My wife and I spent 6 years in Germany and loved the food. Ol' Heidelberg ambiance reminded me of Bavarian restaurants and their food didn't disappoint. They were willing and appeared happy to change the entrée slightly to accommodate our issues. The food was really good and the staff was very friendly. We met the manager/owner who came from Germany so no wonder the food tasted authentic. Will be going back.

“Not worth the trip or money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2014

The cucumber salad, bread, and cabbage were good. Entrée of saurerbraten was below average. The kids meals wete super cheap quality. Not the German food I remember from when I was in Germany. Mostly for me, the food didn't warrent the high prices. If I pay that much, I expect it to be good quality, hot when served and it wasn't. I didn't say anything to the manager.

“Best German food anywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2014

This place always pleases with it's authentic German fare and warm cozy atmosphere! Not sure why someone though it was outdated, some things like classics never go out if style. All the schnitzels are great and don't miss the fried potatoes!! We are lucky to have several German restaurants in Huntsville and this is at the top of the list everytime! Get there early it's always crowded!

“A Taste of Bavaria in the Heart of Huntsville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

You'll find this restaurant in a bland strip mall. But as soon as you walk through the doors, you're instantly transported to old-world Bavaria. The atmosphere is warm and cozy (perfect for date night!) and truly feels like you just stepped into a German tavern. And the food was some of the best Bavarian fare we've had, from the freshly baked rye and pumpernickel breads to the sausages and German potato salad. For the sweet tooth, they have a case of beautiful homemade cakes that do not disappoint! We were delighted to stumble across this gem and hope to go back many more times in the future!

“Always outstanding food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

It is a special treat always to have food that rivals what I have had in Germany many times. I enjoy the atmosphrere and the staff. The desserts are to "die for" and a very wide selection.
