This German chalet-themed restaurant been open since 1991 and sports an adjacent deli next door where the original owners, Dieter Doerrenberg and Heidi Brueggeman, make sausages, schnitzel, and all sorts of German baked goods daily. Old Heidelberg's menu is almost as big as the cavernous restaurant itself. There's plenty of meaty German fare like schnitzel and duck, plus a variety of roasted pork and beef dishes ladled with rich sauces. You'll also find more European-inspired dishes like steaks, seafood, and chicken cordon bleu. Go for the house potato soup; chunky and flavorful and loaded with bits of aromatic vegetables and crumbled sausage. Finger-size sausages made at the deli next door included fatty knockwurst and bratwurst, plus a rich and garlicky link of keilbasa.
