I have been to this eatery several times and try something different every time, and all of it is very tasty.I spent 5 years in Germany for work and this is the real deal. I wish it was closer to where I actually live in Georgia. Every time I visit my grandchildren who live in Huntsville this is usually on... More

This was such a wonderful dining experience. We had planned to go to another restaurant nearby, but last minute changed our plans. Our waiter was excellent at giving honest information about the options on the menu. Both my husband and I have German family, so we were excited to try cuisine we were used to cooked by someone other than... More

We went here for a date night and enjoyed it. My hubby had the veal cordon bleu schnitzel with potato salad, slaw with a salad with homemade ranch dressing. I had the goulash with spaetzle and red cabbage also side salad with homemade blue cheese dressing. We got the sausage sampler. It's been years since I've eaten here and my... More

I had not been to Ol Heidelberg in quite some time and I was happy to see it still is excellent German cuisine. My wife and I really enjoyed the atmosphere, and of course the food as well as the desserts.

We stopped in for lunch recently. The service was slow and the food was under seasoned and average at best. There was also a bad smell in the back of the restaurant. The overall cleanliness was below our expectations. This was a favorite German restaurant for our family a few years ago. However, based on this recent visit we most... More

I have a word or two of advice for the restaurant... they should take reservations for special nights like Christmas Eve. They did call ahead seating but for 5:30 arrival we were seated closer to 7pm. The food was delicious and service was conscientious once we were seated. I recommend the schnitzel and the fried potatoes.

After eating at a chain for dinner on this business trip, we took a break for lunch and were taken to Ol Heidelberg for some local fare. There aren't many German restaurant options where I'm from and this was really good. I was impressed with the German potato salad. The service was good and it was pretty quick if you... More

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions to get our German food fix. The food is always on the very good to excellent side. The service, however, is ALWAYS slow, inaccurate, and just generally unhappy. Do not bring children if they tend to be impatient or restless. This could be a really fun place with some tweaking. The desserts... More
