The best German food in the Tampa Bay Area. I had the Munich platter which had a little bit of everything. It is not a large place, but that is a plus in my opinion. You get that real German home experience "Gemuetlichkeit" when eating here. Beers are fresh.

Bring your lederhosen! Advise freunden of this lovely tiny Anna Maria #1 Beer restaurant. Funny servers, funny manager. 4 German tap brews to wash down German comfort food in an all-year Oktoberfest vibe. Let's go Oktoberfest.

Friendly people, nice staff, outstanding food. We came as strangers, had a bunch of beers with authentic German food and left as friends. Gary is the best.

We were visiting the island for vacation and decided to try this place based off reviews, and we were not disappointed. The servers take great care of you and the food is great!

This place should be the best place on Anna Maria Island? That's definitely ridiculous! Read the critical reviews and consider them as moderate, then you get an appropriate judgement. The food is neither authentic German and often nor good quality. They offer sometimes good quality, but there is no consistency. Look at the bottom of your Schnitzel - it's often... More

Gary and Chef Armen have MORE than stepped up to the plate since Wolfgang and his lovely wife left. We have been there twice (Gary and servers always greeting everyone as soon as they walk in), and each time we keep saying everything is delicious. I really like their dinner salad with their home-made mustard-style dressing. And you'll never be... More

We've passed Schnitzel Haus many times over the years and finally booked for dinner. Warm welcome from a great staff! Authentic atmosphere. I had an excellent Jager Schnitzel and great fried potatoes. What more could you want for satisfaction?? Also, good wines by the glass and the desserts looked very tempting. If you like German food, check this place out... More

Not at all familiar with German food, but willing to visit with friends. Greeted warmly by staff as we arrived for our reservation. Enjoyed the creamy potato soup, potato pancakes. Sampled the duck and schnitzel. Everything was delicious. Apple strudel to go for dessert later. Enjoyed trying something new. A very pleasant experience.

Great German restaurant hidden in a strip mall on Anna Maria Island. I have never seen such service in the US. Garry, the owner, has been working as a high class resort in the Black Forest in Germany before moving to Florida. I would say the service is better than anything else in Florida or Anna Maria Island. Food and... More

Description
Authenticity is the key for us at the Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus™, and we strive to bring you the best in traditional German and Austrian cuisine. Our menu includes various versions of schnitzel, roasts, sausages, potato pancakes, brats and of course, German Gemutlichkeit (German hospitality). No question, we only serve the best German beers and wines.

The atmosphere at the Schnitzelhaus™ is like what Anna Maria Island is for Florida: Fun, laid back, simply “gemutlich”. Come hang out and enjoy yourself on one of the wooden tables or by enjoying a or two beers or wines at the bar.

Schnitzelhaus™ is the “Wirtshaus” where you gather with your friends, your date or even your grandmother. All are welcome, and all are encouraged to stay a while.

We, the owners of the Schnitzelhaus™, are proud of what the Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus™ Team started bringing to the Island some 15 years ago. We want to keep their heritage and take the German spirit on Anna Maria Island up to new generations. So all will know what German food and spirit stands for in today’s world and what it means to enjoy a fantastic Schnitzelhaus™ night.
