I am sad to say that I went there for the first time just a little while ago, although I have lived in Huntsville my entire life. The service was fast, the food was fresh and delicious!! I can t wait to go back.
Just ate there yesterday. Ol' Heidelberg is a nice restaurant with a warm atmosphere and excellent food. Our main waitress was a little Bavarian but the other waitress with short dark hair was very sweet. Does anyone know if she's married?
This is a really great restaurant. We go there often; we have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, absolutely delicious, and the staff couldn't be better. This is truly an outstanding place. I give it TEN stars on a scale of five.
I'm German. In America, it's as close as home you'll get. Saurbraten I don't have to make myself. I host corporate birthday parties there once a month. We never have a problem and their's usually 10 of us or more. They give free slices of cake on your birthday and they have a million desserts.
There's a guy who always takes care of us, and if you have a big group I'd ask for him. He's very polite and he know's his stuff. We always get him and he's never once messed our order up. If you have any questions about anything, just ask him.
Stay away from the specials if you want real German food. Some are authentic, some aren't. They have a decent selection of beer, but nothing like home. I love the Dinkel Acker they always have on draft. It's the only place I know you can get a liter.
Wernher Von Braun used to eat there, and from what I hear Konrad Dannenberg still eats there from time to time. Ol Heidelberg is definitely an oasis if you are German and live in America. All said, it's a nice place to relax and enjoy a meal with friends or coworkers.
I agree with CJ. I lived in the netherlands for three years, about five miles from Germany. We were in the country 4 or 5 times per week. I was in Germany four times last year and find this place very acceptacle. As for the person who said it's too expensive, you must have grown up eating at fast food places. You should stick to Mcdonalds a place more fitting one of your stature. Please, the next time you get a thought just let it go.
Great food, great service, CRAZY PATRONS. We drove up from Birmingham last night with my wife, kids and parents for a great meal at Ol Heidelberg. It's well worth the drive as the food is always great. Too bad they don't scan the patrons for basic cogency.
We're sitting there laughing and enjoying conversation when a fellow patron approached us asking if we were from New Orleans because she was and felt outraged that we were laughing at the destruction and death that was facing her city. She had overheard parts of several conversations and gathered that we were laughing at the plight of Hurricane Gustav. By the end of it, she and a friend were telling us that the souls of our children were in peril and that we had no respect for the sanctity of life. No matter of explanation could convince these people that we weren't laughing at tragedy, only enjoying schnitzel and lively conversation utterly unrelated to current events.
My suggestion for the restaurant is that they no longer allow crazy or irrational people to dine there. Regardless how hard we tried to convince the woman that we weren't talking about New Orleans or their current problem she and her companion kept saying that our entire family and our children were in danger of going to hell and suffering God's judgement. Coming from a family of conservative Christians, I found the comments beyond the pale of reasonable behavior. Fortunately the waiter and fellow patrons found the pair's behavior as off the chart insane as we did. I rest assured that not everyone from New Orleans is insane, just these two incensed women who refused to listen to our explanations or assurances.
What the hey, take the risk of being insulted and assaulted by stressed out wackos and go to Ol Heidelberg for dinner. Great food, prices, service and sometimes a free floor show.
This place is too expensive for bad cuisine. And they play the same music over and over again all the time! Germans don't listen to beer festival music THAT much. Don't waste your time with this place.
