I would not eat here at all. Completely unhealthy and junk food. There is a good choice of beers and alcohol and the location is kinda interesting in the Village.

It was a quiet night when we went so not too much atmosphere. That said the beer and the sausage that I had was good. I think the pork schnitzel looked even better.

We lived in Germany and are always on the lookout for German Restaurants. The Old World German Restaurant may be the best in SoCal. Great ambiance and service. Wonderful entertainment. Great food choices and quality. Wonderful selection of beer and schnapps.

We had reservations, but nobody welcomed us. We seated ourselves. The dining room was empty the entire duration of our visit, except for a child doing homework. Service was friendly and agonizingly, extremely slow. Food was just o.k. There is absolutely nothing here to make us want to return.

We're very sorry to hear of your less-than-ideal experience at Old World's German Restaurant. I did have the opportunity to look into your concerns with our Restaurant's General Manager and it appears that someone from your party made (and later changed) the reservation you had secured via the Open Table reservation service, which caused some confusion as those "services" can...

I've been to the Old World German village numerous times. I've also eating at the German Restaurant numerous times over the years... My recent visit was 8/17/2016. First off, they changed the eating place from the small dining room to a larger one next to a bar. The larger dining room is brightly lighted and has a couple of TVs... More

This is a great restaurant tucked away in "Old World" village. Going there reminds you of how the cobbled paths of a German village must feel. This is now my "go-to" German restaurant. I have been here several times and really have enjoyed it each time. The food is great, there are always special events going on and there's an... More

We're happy that you found us and appreciated our community-type atmosphere at the Old World Village. When my father designed and built the village back in the 70's, he wanted visitors to feel like they were in a Bavarian village just like he did growing up. Glad you liked it and hope you visit again soon! Cyndie More

Went there this past Friday for lunch while passing through. We sat outside and the hostess told us to sit anywhere and they will send a server out to take our order. The server NEVER CAME! I politely returned to the hostess station two more times and got the same response with no server to follow. After 3 times and... More

Hi Rogers45, As General Manager of the Old World German Restaurant, I’d like to apologize for the experience you had while dining (or waiting to dine) at our restaurant. We take pride in our award-winning German cuisine as well as our service, however, it’s clear you had less than an "award-winning" experience. I’m not 100% clear on the circumstances that... More

Coming from Milwaukee, we had not found any German restaurants in our area. Not surprising because Southern California is not a German stronghold. However for my birthday, we decided to try something different. Looking at our Dining for Miles guide for the area, we found this delightful German restaurant at the Old World Village in Huntington Beach. We went for... More
