We have had good German food before, this is the Best German food we have ever had. We shared our plates of veal wiener schnitzel, red cabbage, Checkers scrambled eggs, spaetzel , potato dumpling. Filling and awesome!

“Delish!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

My husband, who is German, loves this place. Me, I do too, but don't like to eat heavy. Food is very good, service excellent. Bread also good! Good value as well.

“Wonderful all around!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Great atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, excellent food! Hubby and I both braved the "boot" of beer and managed to finish them! I had a stuffed weiner schnitzel which was delicious. Hubby had a variety platter which he enjoyed too. German potato salad was delicious as was the spaetzle. Apple strudel rounded out a fantastic meal! Will definitely go back on future trips to Pompano Beach,

“Bad Service, Bad Food All Around”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Very disappointed - food was terrible - I had the pork knuckle and it had clumps of fat that did not smell good. The service we received was also terrible. I have never had such a rude waitress (Natalie) - as soon as we received our drinks she asked what we wanted to eat without hardly giving us time to look at the menus. The whole dinning experience (if you could call it that) was rushed - at the end of our meal (while we were still finishing our beer) she came over and said "goodbye" - not "can I get anything else for you" - not 5 minutes later she came back and said "good night" - it's not like we had been there a long time - we were there for about 45 minutes from start to finish. As soon as we got up to leave the waitress and the owner pulled the table away to move it (my wife hardly had time to take her bag off the back of the chair). If they needed our table then they should have told us when they seated us - instead they rushed us in and out of there like cattle herd. Very disappointed will not be going back - much better food & experience at Cypress Nook.

“Authentic German food in Pompano Beach”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

A visit to Checkers Old Munchen restaurant is like a trip to Germany -- right down to the imported beer and das boot they serve it in. German specialties and desserts are made in-house with pride and served with a smile. Favorites include a brat and knackwurst platter with sauerkraut, potato pancakes, spaetzel, wienerschnitzel, sauerbraten, topped off by classics like Blackforest and German chocolate cake -- made from scratch. We'll visit Checkers Old Munchen every time we're in the area!
