Restaurant is closed – This restaurant is closed. New restaurant taking it's place - currently renovating.
What is going on there? Open or closed? – When Anna Marie ran it, the place was wonderful. Now I can't even tell if it's still in business. The outside is covered with something & no one answered the phone when I tried calling earlier this week.
Anyone no what's going on there?
If you post your open hours.. BE OPEN!! – My husband and I have driven from The Woodlands area on 3 different occasions to eat at Old Heidelberg and on all 3 occasions, they have been CLOSED! We went during hours they had posted as OPEN but only to get all the way down there to be told they were closed or closing. SO... We will NEVER make that mistake again and have since found RUDY'S Leichner German Restaurant and theyare WOINDERFUL!!! and OPEN WHEN THEY SAY THEY WILL BE!!
Old Heidleberg German restaurant – I come from Chicago where Germantown and all ethnic restaurants are just the best. I went to this restrant about 15 years ago, and continued to go there for the music and being single, to meet guys and giriends there. It was a meeting place for the plus fifty crowd and it was fun. Now it just reminds me of a quiet restaurant that has fallen quietly into dispair. The food was not what I remembered and I wasn't give the cabbage and rye at the table free. Everything was costly and did not have that special flair I remembered.The Weinerschnichel was too crisp and not enough vegs......everything was dipped and fryed. All in all, I wish this place was the same as I remembered, but I guess that's too much to ask. There used to be another German restaurant off Post Oak.......Does anybody remember the name???
Great Food! Gutes Essen! – The food was really amazing, and the waiter was incredibly attentive for how busy he was. Very friendly!
The atmosphere is rather loud, but could be entertaining for a weekend night. We were expecting a full German experience, but it was quite Americanized. None the less, we will definitely go back. :-)
It?s me again. It was on Friday January 30th, 2009, and what a great way to start a new year. I came in around 7:30pm to meet with a group of friend. Even though, I ate early (5:30pm) and was not ?that hungry?; But knowing that I would have to stay for awhile, I decided to order something to eat so I would not go home hungry.
I requested to speak to the owner and ask to see if they have something light. The cook came out and suggested something she recently came up with, it is called ?WIENERWICH?. It is a Wienerschnitzel sandwich on a white toasted bun (instead of rye bread) with lettuce and melted swiss cheese, it has a special spread which enhanced the flavour of the meat, so good that I had to take a second bite before putting it down and opened it up to see what?s inside. The order also came with german potato infused with bacon and onion and garnished with slices of tomatoes and pickles. I washed it down with a cold glass of ?Paulaner?. For those who prefer other kind of meat, The Old Heidelberg also offers the wienerwich with chicken.
Pros: walked away with a complete satisfaction.
Cons: Again? None
Longevity comes in many forms! – I'd driven by the Old Heidelberg for many years and finally decided to go. The menu is strictly "rib-sticking" German food, although they do have some low carb entries. The bread arrived but was cold, not warmed up. Salads come with dinner, but they never came (for 4 people??) In fairness, we never followed up, we were so busy talking. Lots of people got up and danced. I was expecting oompah music, but it wasn't. You need to go to Rudi Lechner's for that. If you're older, love to dance, want a cozy atmosphere, this is the place! Service was good, attentive.
AWFUL – We went on a Saturday night (1/19) and the service and food was awful. We even had to send a plate back and the waitress came back and said the cook was "angry" because we did not like the food quality ... so we had to pay for it! The service was terrible ... very slow. Waitress was rude telling us to hurry up and order because she "didn't have all day". Beer was hot. Bathrooms were dirty ... ceiling tiles were stained in the bathrooms and falling down. We will never go back. One of the worst dining evenings I have ever had. TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best German restaurant in Texas – Me and my husband have gone to other german restaurants before but this place is a WHOLE lot better. The food was very fresh, and extermely tasty. The variety of wines/beer is more than your typical restaurant, and the workers and very educated about their products and food. The band plays many types of music and everyone has such a good time relaxing and listening to the band. Staff is also very nice. This is the type of place I would definitely go to again to enjoy my time and have excellent food. I had no complaints!
Best Restaurant (let alone German Restaurant) in town! – A group of us went to the Old Heidelberg to celebrate a birthday, and it was great! I had gone a few times long ago, but it was better this time. The food was authentic German food (I am familiar with German food), the service was very good with friendly and professional staff, and the live music made the place very cozy and friendly. Ever since the new ownership food quality has improved, and the minor remodelings of the place have definitely opened up the whole area. The band plays a variety of great music, and there are more than 60 different types of beers to choose from. We enjoyed our time there very much and would recomment it to anyone, we'll be going back for some more German food pretty soon.
