I highly recommend this restaurant for their food and exceptional service. We are here in town for a class conference for my husband. I had reviewed the local restaurants on TripAdvisor before deciding we wanted to try this one. It has been our best restaurant decision so far on this trip. Our waitress was wonderful. She was extremely helpful, attentive,... More

We were in Huntsville to visit Huntsville Hospital and were driving around looking for a place to eat when Tripadvisor told us about Hildegard's. Food was excellent, service was excellent. By the time we finished with the doctor it was time for dinner, so back we went. Again excellent food, and so much we took boxes home with us.

This is an outstanding restaurant! My wife is not a big fan of German food, but she loved the salad and spätzle. Their breads are outstanding. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely come back to this restaurant the next time I am in the Huntsville area.

In the spirit of Germans in Huntsville (space research) we decided to find German food. Hildegard has pretty good German food and nice size portions. The red cabbage and spaetzle tasted homemade. Service was good and friendly. Unfortunately the restaurant decor was tired and old. Not much charm.

The Huntsville area has a large German population due to the early space program employees so there are quite a few restaurants in the area that cater to the special tastes. This is a very small restaurant tucked away just off the highway near some older downtown areas. Seating is limited to about 9 tables or so with a German... More

Sorry we don't live close by so we could go more often. Tucked away in a corner, this little touch of Germany has authentic food and beer. We had holstein schnitzel and sauerbraten topped of with apple strudel, all excellent.

nice, clean place with excellent service. i had the chicken salad on mixed greens with strawberries and grapes and toast. it was a light (but filling) meal, the kind you don't feel guilty about eating after you leave. good local place...check it out if you haven't already.

Hello, Marcus A, Thank you for supporting our local business, and for posting this nice review! I'm glad you had a great lunch here. We do have "lighter" options that aren't necessarily a large schnitzel with potatoes and gravy, but no matter what you get here, it will always be freshly prepared and you will get your money's worth -...

Hildegard's is as close to being back in Germany as we have found in the greater Huntsvillle area. Having spent 5 years in Germany and returning in 2014, we miss the German cuisine - and Hildegard's helps greatly with the 'homesickness' of missing Germany. The Gulash soup is excellent, as is the schnitzel. Music in the background is a bit... More
