About once per year, my craving for pigtails and sauerkraut is fully satiated here. Not sure what to recommend to those without such cravings.

The best meal ever! This is not a fancy place nor good for picky people, you go there to have fun enjoying the best Smoked Pork Hock meal and drinking their brewed beer with friends, family and/ or relatives.

Family run and the service is excellent, but when busy then you have to be patient.

Plenty of parking and not too far from Waterloo/ Kitchener area/ St Jacobs area.

We went in March and was raining so I am not sure if there is an outdoor seating.

Our group was looking forward to checking out wing night at the Heidelberg, and was terribly disappointed. The service was atrocious, and the food we returned to the kitchen was 'recycled' and sent back to us! (health codes, anyone?) Since when does 'medium wings' mean blackened with bbq sauce? When we returned the wings - these were just gross - they got doused in the kitchen with hot sauce and returned to us as is, on the same plate. Unfortunately, our server didn't really care about how unhappy we were with the food (basically, take it or leave it - that's how we do it around here) and the owner didn't care (I suspect she'll never read this) - she couldn't be bothered to help us out and have customers return. So, this experience means that no one in our group of 7 will return - and we strongly recommend that others avoid this dirty restaurant, with poor service and food that is mediocre at best.

I eat in this restaurant often, and I have never been disappointed yet. The food is simple and unvarying but very satisfying, and the service always friendly. The atmosphere is great, and last time we went there (on Octoberfest), there was live music. I recommend to make a reservation in the restaurant if you are planning a weekend visit.

I ordered the fried chicken with mashed potatoes, corn and coleslaw. It tasted like they had defrosted a frozen dinner. Actually it tastes very much like the McCain's frozen dinner... only you have to pay 4x more... The portions are relatively small for this kind of restaurant.

Then the servers disappeared... We wanted pie... The pie was okay... not amazing not bad either...

The the servers disappeared again... after 15 minutes we were finally able to get our check... :( and it was freezing cold in there... which is okay in summer but not on a cold, wet, rainy day in October...
