I first ate at Ol Heidelberg when it was at the old "The Mall" on the Parkway 40+ years ago. Never had a bad meal, schnitzel is the best you will find. Great service and great atmosphere. The hot bread is awesome!

The food was authentic and very good. The service was excellent also. If you like German cuisine I highly recommend them.

Having lived in Bavaria for three years, my wife and I are familiar with German food and found the Ol' Heidelberg Cafe to be a great reminder of some of the great food we've missed since our return to the States. It was no surprise...More

Husband and I discovered this restaurant while looking for another great place we'd discovered in Madison on an earlier visit to the area. We both love German food so our next chance to go to Huntsville, we timed it to have lunch at Ol Heidelberg....More

We eat here occasionally. They have a kids menu, which is a plus. I haven't had anything that was bad here. They have all the usual menu items for a German restaurant like schnitzel, pan fried potatoes, bratwurst, euro slaw, etc.

Their desserts are on display when you first walk in the restaurant. When you want a dessert, you get up from the table, look, and choose.

I do not have a desert menu but, just imagine any delicious cake you may want and they have it, plus baklava.
What are the prices for each item on the menu?

The menu is large, so I can't cover everything but I will list some of the prices to give you an idea. I'm using the dinner menu: Home Made Fresh Soup of the Day $3.95 for a cup or $4.95 for a bowl House Salad... More
