We tried this restaurant, recently, for the first time. Between us, we ordered a variety of menu selections so that we could share and try. Everything was fabulous!! We will definitely go back.

Authentic German cuisine in a quaint environment. The Goulash is off the chart! Don't forget to finish with one of their unbelievable home-made desserts! Make sure you ask for Shauna if you want the best personalized service. She always gives 110% to make sure our dining experience is top notch! We've been coming here for 10 years and never been...

Nice environment, but expensive and not authentic German food. If you don't know the difference then you will like the food. It does taste good.

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

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
