Great food, great service. Ambience and music was wonderful. Always a great time.
Really nice ambiance. Fun atmosphere. Food was really good and a true variety of German recipes. Also have vegitarian. Our waitress was new so it was slow service but the other servers there seemed to do really good with their tables so think it was just a learning curve for ours.
I love Old World. The food is good. It definitely needs some updating of the restaurant and bar.
Old World Restaurant in Huntington Beach doesn’t seem to be connected to OpenTable. They had no idea of our reservation. They were great at accommodating us though.
The food is fine at this restaurant but the real reason to go is for the experience. The olde worlde decor, one man band, and waitstaff in traditional garb make it especially fun. There is a shop attached where you can buy many of the foods to take home, or cook yourself, and there are many other shops in the charming center where it is located. We have not yet gone on a theme night (trivia, board games, sports events) but we plan to. Fun for the whole family!
We went with friends visiting from out of state. They enjoyed it , other than the noise level from the bar patrons. But we had expected that so we were prepared.
We wanted a fun environment and a new experience. This place was perfect.
Fresh, homemade stuffed pretzels - fabulous! The musician, Jim Gilman, was excellent - had an unbelievable repertoire. We had planned to visit over dinner for a couple of hours, but had such a good time that we stayed 3 and a half hours! Amongst the 4 of us, 1 had beer, 1 had wine, 1 had a mixed drink, and I had iced raspberry tea. We split two appetizers and ordered various entrees. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and the wait staff was perfectly attentive.
Good German and Polish food Cheap price POO=Baa band
I relocated from Columbus, Ohio to the OC. I was thrilled to find an authentic German restaurant! Good food. Live music. Nice beer selection.
the food was fantastic and authentic. We ordered the pork shank and it was already plenty of food for two people already. waitress was very friendly. overall an A+
It was exactly what we were looking for. An authentic German restaurant as I met up with friends and we had lived in Germany many years ago
We arrived to find a talented live musician playing German and other favoured tunes for us as we enjoyed our brunch. We all ordered our favourite German dishes, and they were tasty. The beautiful waitress was friendly and efficient, always quick to notice if one of our coffee cups needed a refill. We will be back.
Took great care of us for my boyfriend's birthday. Our kid loved it and loved the accordian player. Great food! Best bratwurst I've ever had at great prices.
Went here with our younger son and his girl friend to celebrate my wife's birthday and my younger son's girl friend's birthday.
Excellent German food. I had rouladen with rotkohl and potato pancakes. My wife had sauerbraten wth the same sides. The rouladen was the best I have had. My wife liked the sauerbraten.
large portions, but we all cleaned our plates and emptied a pitcher of spaten Oktoberfest beer.
There was an accordion player and a singer. They were good. The only downside was they had a recording supplementing their playing.
It was the end of Oktoberfest, which was in an outside area.
Excellent service and the price was reasonable
We went for Octoberfest. Had we gone for dinner rather than lunch, we may have felt differently. The waitresses didn't smile or make us feel welcome. We did enjoy the lively music though.
We lived in Germany and try to eat in as many German restaurants as possible. The OLD WORLD is, by far, the best in SoCal! Great ambiance, service, entertainment, beer and food!
This restaurant was a huge disappointment and did not compare favorably to reviews that were posted online. From the outset everything went from bad to worse. In spite of reservations made on Open Table, nobody was there to greet us when we arrived at the scheduled time. We were seated in a room that was quiet so we could talk, but that made us invisible and the harried waitress was busy in another part of the restaurant with OctoberFest. The food was not even worth all the endless waiting. It came out fairly cold, not well prepared at all in my opinion, and altogether unmemorable in either presentation or flavor. The only other people in our dining room were children doing homework. The chairs were uncomfortable and the atmosphere so-so. Will never return.
Authentic German restaurant and food. Excellent for Octoberfest. It was much noisier than I prefer, but that was mostly due to the German band. The food was very plentiful for the price.
Authentic food. I grew up eating my fathers German dishes. I was taken back to my childhood at this restaurant. Great experience!
Wonderful Father's Day brunch! Great selection of food!
Loved the mimosas and beer too.
We went to the Father's Day brunch. There was a good food selection and the servers were very prompt about refilling drinks and clearing plates. We all had a great time.
The authentic food, charming atmosphere, old-world service, and welcoming attitude is a delight to behold. This is a favourite place to dine, to bring friends and family, to enjoy with large groups, to celebrate! We had a lovely Sunday lunch, dropped in to shop at the bakery and deli next door, and will return again soon. Thank you Old World for being part of our community.
The food at this reastaurant is ok if you have no idea what german food is like. Maybe it was just because we are germans but in our opinion the food was awful. If you have ever been to Germany do NOT visit this restaurant. The waitresses are kind but the food takes long and is nasty.
All 7 of us loved the food and the server and we are planning to return! It was a little quiet in the village due to inclement weather on a Sunday night, but we had a great time!
Wonderful place to eat authentic German food.
Excellent service, Excellent people, Excellent food.
We will come back and visit again.
Fabulous meal - reservations through OPENTABLE make it soon much easier! We had two full meals, with sides and a couple of beers and the tab was under $40 pre-tax.
Ate here years ago and was craving the snitchel. So looking for
ward to the wonderful tender flavor. So, so disappointed. Not tender at all, looked old and the breading was falling off. Yuck. Also the air was not working and they wouldn't open the door. Just wanted to pass out and forget the whole experience.
very good food and fantastic service. I really enjoyed the different sausages and the authentic market
Tanner was an awesome server! Food was great and portions large!
It was our first time to try this restaurant and the place has a good reputation from locals but as soon as you get there the first image of the restaurant can be deceiving.
The place has a market and dining area in the same building so when you get in, you think that you are on the wrong place.
The dining area is small but cozy. The food is good especially if yiou like german sausagaes however the service can be a little bit tricky since I have to ask for refills all the time.
Overall the experience is great. Just don;t expect a fine dining type of restaurant.
