This restaurant has been considered an institution for decades in the greater Fort Lauderdale area, and the go-to place in October, or any time of year for traditional German cuisine. Lately however the customer service has declined to the point of being an embarrassment and certainly not characterized as gemütichkeit. In fact both the service and some of the patrons... More

Walked over here as we were at Hampton Inn and not much else around. What a great place! My mom and I split the Jaeger Schnitzel which was amazing. I could have licked my plate after that. It was definitely big enough to split.We also had at the table, Wiener Schnitzel, a meatloaf dish (can't remember the name) and the... More

We really enjoyed our time at this restaurant. We walked there from nearby Best Western Hotel. The service was very friendly & efficient. Our friend's plane was delayed and they were running late. Our waitress, Venessa, was very kind and patient and attentive. We really enjoyed the DJ and the German dancers that came out and performed a nice little... More

The dinners are very large and we always share them. The food is wonderful and the service is very good. They also have live music and we were there on Friday night when it was playing.

Went here tonight and had the Jager Schnitzel. It was very nice. Came with red cabbage and Spätzle. The service was good.

Food was quite salty overall. Our party of 6 was disappointed in service and food. Very strict about making any changes .....any deviation costs extra. Suggested wine for one of us was not satisfactory but was charged for regardless. Black forest cake was very unauthentic and a big let down. Bratwurst sausage was good but everything else was below expectations.... More

If you are in the mood for really delicious authentic German food, head on over to Old Heidelberg Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. The owner/chef offers a tremendous amount of variety, from schnitzels to sauerbraten, to Bavarian duck, all served with the appropriate sides - hearty soups, salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, red cabbage etc. There are many different kinds of...
