Great food, great atmosphere, great beer! Prost! The staff is great. It doesn't feel like your in Ft Lauderdale while you're inside. Everything is homemade and it tastes like it too.

Do you want german food? Then this is your place, its good, but pricey, kitschy and fun, a little cluttered.

I would recommend not going there. Very lacking in flavor. One of my mother in laws are German and comes over once a year from Germany and cooks and it is always flavorful and great. I honestly believe part of what they served me was spam. My friend was served peas and carrots from a can. Servuce was also lacking... More

Every once in a while you need a good German dinner with a good German beer. The bartender Danny is first class and knows the food and beer. Just delightful.

The schnitzel is amazing however the service is like being back in Germany. The staff is rude and not willing to accommodate the customers. The food is not cheep so you would think that the service should be impeccable however you will not get treated very well here.

Been there for years but I had never been. Wanted German food so we finally gave it a try. In at 6:30 on a Sunday. Pretty busy but got seated right away. I wanted to try their Schweinshaxe (German pronunciation: [vans.haks]), in German cuisine, is a roasted ham hock (or "pork knuckle"), especially popular in Bavaria as Schweinshaxn [vans.haksn] or...

I'm pretty familiar with German food, having eating it in several US cities. Old Heidelberg has the best schnitzel of any restaurant I've eaten in the US. The soups and cabbage are also excellent with good portion sizes. I'm not giving this place five stars due to the slow service and the pricing and unwillingness to substitute menu items. I... More

Went here with some friends. Don't know a lot about German food but was anxious to try the place out. It was actually quite good. Again, I am not really an expert on German food but I had a combination plate which had about 8 different items on it and enjoyed it a lot. The prices seems reasonable. I would... More

Our family group of 4 is quite familiar with German food and were excited to try out yet another German restaurant. The food is quite authentic and every dish was done well. We had: Jaegerschnitzel with spaetzel, Bratwurst with potatoes, Hungarian Goulash with spaetzel, and Sauerbraten with potato dumplings. The portions were quite ample. The beer selection is not as...

We arrived at this restaurant from out of town with high expectations. We were ready for some great German food (I'm German)!! After being seated we patiently waited for for 15 minutes (while being ignored by several waitresses passing by) before getting up and looking for somebody to take our order. A young lady informed us that although our table... More
