Have visited many times, but this is my first review......I guess you get used to this restaurant's general excellence. Food is great and there is plenty of it. Service is just as good. Surprising large lunch crowd, but just as good for dinner.

I have plenty experience with good German food (in the US), but few good experiences with German restaurants. This was by far the best German restaurant I have tried yet. The Jaeger Schnitzel was better than most. The slaw was the very best. The potato salad was served cold. It was good, but the same thing served hot would have... More

The European Chicken Melt was great. The German potato salad was very very good. The Wiener Schnitzel and Chicken Schnitzel were also excellent. The desert looked amazing we will try it next time.

I don't get the rave reviews. It's a German restaurant. Nothing spectacular. Outstanding service though. It will not disappoint.

Visitd with friends for dinner. I have heard about this place from one if them for years. Ordered the Black Forrest Veiner Schnitzel which was very good. The German Potato Salad was ordered warm and the vinegar didn't over power the potatoes. The Cucumber Salad was great. The decor needs a bit of a face lift. Service was quick and... More

Pleasant ambiance, excellent service, hearty portions and never any surprises regarding quality. Its always top notch. Fair amount of beers on tap; nice medium range priced wine selection. In-house-made desserts are superb.

Having lived in Germany for a little over 10 years I have become quite a German food snob. Ol' Heidelberg, while located in a strip mall in between a large Mexican Restaurant and a Nothing But Noodles, delivers everything I loved about dining out at any local eatery in Germany.. From the uniforms of the wait staff to the decor... More

Great atmosphere and great food. More of a special occasion or date night place, but well worth the trip. Will definitely be back.

The rave reviews you've read are right! This place is excellent. From the atmosphere to the beer and food, everything was great. I'd suggest calling ahead for a table if you plan to come on a weekend/ evening time, since the wait could be quite long but worth it!
