We had a wonderful lunch here, outside in the Beer garden. For appetizers we had the kasespatzle - which is spatzle with cheese and caramelized onion, and a pretzel as big as your head! Both delicious! Their schnitzel was perfect and their Bavarian pork shank...More

Went for lunch with a friend who lived in Germany and his report was very good. The food is good and there is lots of it. Hadn't eaten much German cuisine before, but would recommend this restaurant.

I always enjoy the schnitzel but this time several of us tried their specials. I had the duck and it was great. Others had the lamb chops and said they hadn't had lamb that tasted so good in a long time. The desert that got...More

Craving German food in CT? Look no further that the Old Heidelberg in Bethel, CT. The building is a quaint cottage that looks as though it was picked up from Germany and placed here. The inside of the building is small, but when full on...More
