We visited Ol Heidelberg for my birthday with friends. The service was great and the food was superb. They have delightful deserts to choose from in the display case when you enter. The servers and the decor give you the feel of being in Germany. I ordered a Cordon Bleu with potato salad. I also chose a cucumber salad for... More

This is a popular place, so my review will probably go against the grain for the people of Huntsville. It is overrated. We were really looking forward to it since my husband was stationed in Germany for many years. The servers were nice, the decorations are ok, but it is packed tight and the food isn't anything to write home... More

This restaurant has been part of Huntsville for decades and this family owned restaurant continues to be a favorite. While Huntsville has 3 other German restaurants this still is my favorite . Great soup, breads, Schnizels, Sausage, red cabbage, pan fried potatoes and so on.. But the best is at the end if you have room-----Dessert!!!! The Budget-minded might want... More

My absolutely most favorite restaurant in Huntsville and best German food outside of Germany! They take reservations. Ambiance is cute and fun. They have a section a little darker (romantic) and sections more well lite. Huge menu, delicious deserts, and good beer selection. The warm potato salad is phenomenal! Love love love this place!!!

Good german food but use to be much better. Prices have gone up and quality down. I love the pan fries and red cabbage. They replaced good german beer with craft beer, probably because most Americans do not appreciate good German beer.

My wife and I have been regulars at Ol Heidleberg for over 30 years, and try to eat there at least every couple of weeks. The food and dining experience are consistently excellent. The schnitzel selection is extensive, and there are no poor choices. My favorite is the Black Forest and my wife's the Rahm. She's also a big fan... More

For superior German food in the Huntsville area, Ol Heidelberg Café is the best. I have had German food in several cities in the US, and honestly, when I think of Chicken Schnitzel Cordon Bleu, my vision is always of Ol Heidelberg. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The bratwurst plate is wonderful, the schnitzel plates... More

This great German restaurant is my must stop visit when I am in Huntsville. Don't fear it's location in a strip mall, once inside you will cherish the old world charm. I am a dunkel beer fan only and they serve Yellowhammer. Food is very good, but I can't ever make room for the desserts. Maybe next visit?

We've eaten here many times over many years. The food has always been consistently fresh and delicious. Recently we ate here with the family and everyone ordered something different. Every meal was wonderful!!
