The Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus is an Anna Maria Island Institution. It was established in 1999 by a German couple. In 2015 they retired and gave “the spoon” to an Austian / Germans couple, Gary and Chef Armin. They decided move to Florida and take over Wolfgang’s and Brigitte’s heritage.
The signature dishes are the Wiener Schnitzel with German Potato Salad, Pork Roast, Sauerbraten, Potato Pancakes, famous of course Bavarian Brats. Since Gary is the front of the house, they offer more, especially German Gemütlichkeit (German hospitality). The Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus is the #1 Anna Maria Island Restaurant with the German touch. If you have a sweet tooth you will also want to have a piece of their homemade Apple Strudel or the Black Forrest Cake, which is to die for.
The atmosphere at the Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus is like what Anna Maria Island is for Florida: Fun, laid back, simply “gemütlich”. Of course, they also have the best selection of authentic German beers on tap (Warsteiner, Oktoberfest, Köstritzer, and König Ludwig-Hefeweizen) as well as the best German wines. Freshness guaranteed!
Here is where the locals (and tourists – but not just tourists) go. It’s the place to go for authentic food, fresh beers, and great atmosphere. It is one of the very best Anna Maria Island Restaurant on Tripadvisor practically ever since the current owners are in charge.
Reservation highly recommended, especially during season.
