A Groupon brought us to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The sausage sampler was fantastic as was the pretzel bread. The veal schnitzel was good and the pork shank was a little gross to look at but very tasty. The place was very busy-I would suggest making a reservation.

We just ate there tonight. I had Sauerbraten, warm potato salad, and Sauer kraft. Wife had spaetzle, red cabbage and pork schnitzel. We split an apple strudel. What a meal. Great service and atmosphere.

We lived in Germany for nine years. When we moved to Pompano Beach, we tried most if not all of the German restaurants in the area. Checkers is like a German neighborhood restaurant. Since the fire a few years ago the restaurant has the same excellent food and friendly service, but has a fresher appealing look. We took friends with... More

I personally didn't enjoy their food, or their prices I go to another restaurant for their Wiener Schnitzel.

Great food and atmosphere. Service was spectacular! Food was exceptional and authentic. This is a superior, small restaurant that any fan of German food should try.

This place is an absolute GEM. The worst thing about the place is their sign... it's easy to miss it! They've got a parking lot around back and a rear entrance.. From the greeting from the very lovely hostess, to the good and friendly service by the equally lovely waitress (a beautiful Russian girl), they know how to make you... More

Second visit. I will start by saying the food is excellent. The service stinks. I'm not sure what the staff is irritated about. The first time we went the bartender and our waitress while they served us well seemed mad about something. Today, Upon our arrival, the hostess says that the wait is a few minutes. No problem. To the... More

Arrived without a reservation and we're seated immediately. Server took our drink orders, I had a liter of Octoberfest (they served it all year). Food was delivered in a timely manner and it was super. We have been here previously and was even better this trip. Highly recommened.

I have been here about 5 times and this is the first time I am reviewing this place. First off I do not like German cuisine. I don't like veal and other typical German dishes. So why the 4 stars? They do an excellent grouper entrée. Grouper is a fish by the way. All my friends who have the German... More
