Thoroughly enjoyed shnitzel with a wonderful cucumber salad to start. Service a little slow, but hearty meal was worth the wait. Kinda dark inside, small bar, but adequate. Family was satisfied

Ol Heidelberg is my favorite German restaurant in Huntsville. Unfortunately, it's so expensive that I've only been able to eat there a few times in my 25 years of living here! I think they would do well if they had some specials for lunch or on certain days of the week.

I have ate German food at other places, and liked it. That was not the issue. Not a good value. It was edible.

We always come here to get our German fix. My fav is the mushroom snitzel w boiled potatoes. Be sure to get a side of brown gravy to douse all the goodness in. If there are two of you, try the Bistto assortment platter, it has a bratwurst, cordon blue and wiener snitizel, the one plate will feed two and... More

What a friendly staff and was atmosphere. First time I tried escargot and I feel like it was very well prepared. The liver was good as well. Some of the best sauerkraut I've ever had. Make certain to wash it all down with a huge draft beer.

Came to this restaurant on the advice of a business associate that lives in Huntsville. I can say with no hesitation that the service was great. The food was better. I had Chicken cordon bleu, German potatoes, and for dessert Big Fat Cake! Amazing from start to finish. No wait to get in. Gotta try this place when in Huntsville!!

Super German restaurant of course. It really is very good food and a good feeling atmosphere. The sausages, schnitzels, and deserts are all very good!

Thank Jeff H
