This is the best place for german food in the oklahoma city vicinity. Been here a couple of times and each time i was very pleased with their meals. The prices are a little above average but the meals are worth it. The owners are very friendly and so is the staff. They also have a room set up like a wine basement, very neat to lounge around in. My company had their christmas dinner there also, we had problems with transportation and basically just gave this restaurant one hour notice that a lot of people will be showing up, they welcomed us and even stayed open late..go here if you want a true german meal.
This is the place to be for a wonderful german meal .As you step into the resterant you are transported to germany with it's wonderful rock cave for it's bar and it's great seating areas.YOu can hear someon'e Oma and Opa in the kitchen cooking everyone's meals and those meals are wonderful!
This resterant and it's staff is well worth the trip into choctaw to get a bite and enjoy yourself while doing it!
PROS: wonderful staff,atmosphere, and food
Food was bad and cost to much!!
Food ok but far from great. Ordered wine revived less then half a glass full. My father any grandmother from Germany and they both didn't enjoy the food or the price.
I recently dined at Old Germany Restaurant with a friend. I am half German, half Austrian and spent my first 30 or so years in these two countries so I kind of know what I'm talking about. My expectations were on the higher side based on earlier reviews.
In a nutshell, Old Germany is one of the poorer choices for German fare that I have found in the U.S:
Ambiance: 3.5 stars. Lots of German-American kitsch and paraphernalia inside, yet acceptable for a place in the US. that wants to serve the German cliche. On the upside, tablecloth and napkins were real fabric.
Service: 4 stars. The waiter was attentive, yet not going overboard in the attention we were afforded. The bread basket with German style whole grain breads and butter was nice. However, there was no freshly baked bread served, like a brezel or semmel.
Beverage: 1 star. My Spaten Oktoberfest beer (0.5 liters) was served in a Weizen beer glass. This is an absolute sacrilege and would disqualify the place in Germany right away. The beer accordingly was stale.
Food: 2 stars. My Wiener Schnitzel was appropriately thin cut and tender. However, the bread crumb crust was way too thick and too dark (the color should be bright golden, mine was almost ebony). There was no lemon slice served with it which is a must. The side red cabbage was overcooked. The Spaetzle (German egg noodles) served as a side were apparently not home-made. The side salad was crisp, but the house vinaigrette dressing watery.
Normally, a highlight of German/Austrian food are the desserts based on fresh fruits, ice cream, a light mousse and fresh pastry. For dessert, Old Germany is a total disappointment with the usual selection of prefabricated dessert cakes rotating behind a glass window.
In summary, it was not worth the money. For rural Oklahoma, their business model may be working. Just do not get fooled into believing that their restaurant and the attention they put into preparing their food reflect the better of German cuisine.
Pros: Attentive service, decent ambiance
Cons: Sub-par antiquated "German style" food, hardly any fresh ingredients, overpriced
Will admit the prices are high but other than that delicious. The manager will come to your table as she does to all the tables to check on her customers, I thought that was great. The atmosphere was very German like. If you are around the first week in September this restaurant hosts an Oktoberfest that is out of this world. It is a blast. The beer is real German beer.
I?ve was very excited to try this restaurant , went on a Friday with a couple of people with no reservations, the wait was about 15-20 mins not bad considering the place was packed.
The service was good, the atmosphere was cozy and rustic. The menu looked fabulous and it was hard to make a choice so everyone had something different so we could sample a larger variety.
The bread was stale and dry. The salad was different, tasty, but the canned green beans were ?funky?, totally contradicts the freshness of the other ingredients of the salad. When the entrees came out I was taken aback. The spuds were decent, again with the canned veggies! And the meat? all I can say is ?where?s the beef??
Think about it. This restaurant is in the heart of cattle country, but they skimped on the meat, and for the price we were paying for the meal the meat shouldn?t have been able to fit on the plate. The Germans are robust people with hearty appetites, WE FELT SO TAKEN!!!.
Don?t get me wrong, the meat was cooked to perfection; however I would like to have more than three(3) bites of protein with my meal!
Bottom line: 1 beer, 3 sodas, 4 entrees over $120.00 OUCH!!! That?s what I spend on groceries for the week for a family of 4. It was an experience, but I won?t be returning again. The next time I?m in the mood for German cuisine, I?ll get the recipes from the epicurious website and do it myself, it?s not THAT hard.
*** TO THE OWNERS OF OLD GERMANY***
Die Nahrung war gut, aber der Teil, zum fur Preis Verhaltnisses festzusetzen ist, also skandalos, wei?t du, dass du nicht Recht hast!
Pros: food was tasty, atmosphere was cozy, service was good.
Cons: extremely small portions of meat, canned vegs instead of fresh, high prices not justified
The absolute best meal I've had in a long time! Great authentic atmosphere. Very friendly staff. A welcoming place.
Pros: The food, service, atmosphere
Cons: The drive to Choctaw
