From what I gather, this place is an Ann Arbor tradition and landmark. I visited on a recent sat. afternoon, up stairs was a traditional german style restaurant, down stairs was the Rathskeller. I didnt make it upstairs to the third floor. You are either gonna love or hate this place, its old fashioned, sorta cheesy, looks like it needs a real good cleaning, but some folks call that "character". German food o' pleanty, German Beer galore. If I was local, I'd spend more time here so soak up the athmosphere and eat some tasty German food.

When I visited: March 2012.

What I had: Bell’s Two Hearted Ale (draught), Flying Dog Road Dog Porter (bottle), some of my friend’s Spaten Optimator (draught).

What I liked: Raucus and dingy dive bar vibe, quirky German beer hall decor, hilarious servers with lots of attitude, respectable tap list, 1L boots of draught beer, out-of-place Wolverines memorabilia.

What I disliked: Beer selection and cleanliness could improve, but this place is really fun.

Would I go back? Yes.

The Heidelberg is a fun place to head to when visiting Ann Arbor. If you want something different, get a big boot while you’re there. There’s a big deposit, but it’s always fun to pass around the giant glass of beer. The atmosphere is only okay. It is very loud downstairs and gets awfully crowded. Not a place to go if you don’t have a table. The beer selection isn’t great, and I haven’t really tried the food. Head upstairs for dinner, or all the way upstairs for some blackjack and poker (it used to be more of a dance club or place for bands to play). All in all, there are much better places to go in Ann Arbor. But if you want the German pub experience, this place does the trick.

This is probably the most consistently best food I've ever had. The veal was perfect with slight undertones of lemon in the breading.

The cordon bleu was insane: get it if you're ever there.

My only beef with this place is the Juke Box. It has terrible music (Uhhh Journey is on there) and it's loud when people request music.

My friends and I started going here just for dinner and subsequently made this our bar. Certainly has a great atmosphere. They also have a dunkle weise on tap which is out of this world. I'm shooting to have it at my wedding.
