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,...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....More

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...More

Gemütlich! This place is simply gemütlich. Hard to find in Germany these days. I got this tip from a local in Bradenton to try them out. Excellent "essen" food, great beers. If we get our new vacation home here in Bradenton, we will be regulars.

Great German food. We knew Wolfgang and Brigitte for years and are happy they retired. The new owners are a great addition to the Island and we are happy to have them here.,

Wolfgang and his wonderful wife have sold the business and are very happily retired living in Germany. Knowing Wolfgang and his good memory I am sure he remembers you.

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.
