Pleasant ambiance, excellent service, hearty portions and never any surprises regarding quality. Its always top notch. Fair amount of beers on tap; nice medium range priced wine selection. In-house-made desserts are superb.

Having lived in Germany for a little over 10 years I have become quite a German food snob. Ol' Heidelberg, while located in a strip mall in between a large Mexican Restaurant and a Nothing But Noodles, delivers everything I loved about dining out at any local eatery in Germany.. From the uniforms of the wait staff to the decor... More

Great atmosphere and great food. More of a special occasion or date night place, but well worth the trip. Will definitely be back.

The rave reviews you've read are right! This place is excellent. From the atmosphere to the beer and food, everything was great. I'd suggest calling ahead for a table if you plan to come on a weekend/ evening time, since the wait could be quite long but worth it!

I had their Jaeger Schnitzel which was very tasty. I was very pleased with the bread that was provided and the German Celebrator beer. We shared their sausage sampler appetizer which I felt could have been more substantial. The saurkraut was more plain than I am accustomed.

If you like authentic German food or just want to try what the real stuff is like, Ol Heidelberg is for you! Love the potato salad.....My wife loves the Keilbasa! Any thing we have ever had on the menu is outstanding!

We had a rather large group - 8 people - and arrived at prime dining time, 7pm. There was a bit of a wait, but it was worth it. The weiner schnitzel was fantastic, as well as the fried potatoes. They offer an excellent Leibframilsch wine. Our waitress was fantastic. Highly recommend you try them out.

Enjoyed the meal. Food was good nothing knocked it out of the park. The warm German potatoe salad was very good. I had the sausage sampler and it was very good. The liver plate was enjoyed by my sister in law . We would go back if we want German food. Cucumber salad was liked by all. Waitress was good... More

Thoroughly enjoyed shnitzel with a wonderful cucumber salad to start. Service a little slow, but hearty meal was worth the wait. Kinda dark inside, small bar, but adequate. Family was satisfied
