“Eat German”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We've been to Germany and can say that this restaurant is authentic. The food is wonderful. The restaurant is located in a mall and you really have to look for it. Otherwise, it's just right.

“So full. ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Decided to see why all the fuss over German food in northern Alabama. Ended up at the ol Heidelberg and it was the best German food I've had outside of Germany. We didn't do the chicken dance or prost on the tables, it was all about the food.

I knew I'd only have one chance to eat here so I went for the sampler. Snitzle, cordon blue, and a brat on one playe. It was delicious! !!!!!

“Great Schnizel and German food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

I have always ordered wiener schnitzel at many German restaurants and find that Ol' Heidelberg's is one of the best. I also always get the sweet red cabbage and this was out standing. Off a busy highway. this restaurant is in a shopping center next to a Mexican place. It can be seen from the highway (university drive) but must be accessed by side roads. Dinners are on the expensive side, but good quality and the décor is very German. Service was very good, however I was there in the early evening before 5 pm. A must if you like German food.

“Sausage platter: Tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

I stopped by today when I arrived from the airport and was pleasantly surprised by the food. I ordered the Schlachtplatte which consists of a choice of three of their four sausages. All were very good, served hot and with boiled potatoes and red cabbage.

The menu had the typical schnitzels and German-American fare. This was the lunch menu. I'd like to see what the dinner menu offers.

It's tough to generate much atmosphere in a store front. While the place is nicely decorated the menu was badly worn and dirty. Lighting was terrible.

Service by Christy was very good, however.

“A Must.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

After a visit with a co-worker in 1990 have been driving the 100 miles from Birmingham at least once a month for lunch or dinner. Wife and I order the same thing every time (chicken schnizel gordon blue and black forest ham) and then get something different to go. Sausage plater is a good meal for two.
