The Old Heidelberg Restaurant, Hamilton



THE OLD HEIDELBERG RESTAURANT, Hamilton
A place not in the Burg but quite familiar to many Burg
folks in its days.

Opened in 1929 by Mr. and Mrs. Herman Rennert of Bavaria,
Germany, the Old Heidelberg started out as a hot dog
stand on Hamilton Avenue. In the 1930s that part of the
township was known as Sandtown or Oiltown because of the
sandy dirt roads and the many gas stations that lined
Hamilton Avenue. Beachgoers on their way to the Jersey
Shore would stop for a snack while filling the gas tanks
of their cars. Those with leisure time would sit at the
restaurant's one-table dining area. Later, the Rennerts
added a full dining room, a working kitchen and a bar.
In 1960 the Rennerts sold the restaurant to German
immigrants Joe Kobel, Walter Schwartz and Alfred
Kleinman. The trio also ran Old Mill Restaurant in
Spring Lake. Kobel retired in 1978 and the remaining
partners sold the business to Ruhls in 1985.

Note: artical says Mr Rennert from Bavaria..his WW2
Draft Registration says hes from Bad Salzuflen, a town
in the Lippe district of North Rhine-Westphalia Germany:)

Mack: That was one of the finest restaurants in Trenton. I haven't found a German restaurant as good since I moved. Their Sauerbraten and Red Cabbage was to die for. The place also had atmosphere and the service was great.

HI AGAIN MAC...IT SEEMS LIKE THE HEIDELBERG RESTAURANT WAS THERE FOREVER. EVERYONE I KNEW WHO DINED THERE HAD NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR THE MENU AND SERVICE AVAILABLE.

Well, as much as I liked the Heildberg and red cabbage, I can't share Mr. Z love of sauerbraten. Horrid thing to do to a perfectly good piece of beef. I know, it was winter survival food in days of yore.

Most of our family gatherings were held at the Heidelberg.

But Bavaria? How could someone ever leave there. A Catholic region of Germany, The Alps, the fields of pasture with every barn painted with a beautiful religious theme. One of the most beautiful places on earth.

My family & I loved going to this restaurant. My Mom particularly liked their marinated herring in sour cream. Great snitchel and onion rolls.

Hi everyone:)

Baden area of southwest Germany where quite a few of our Trenton folks families came from also looks pretty. The town Heidelberg looks beautiful..but as they say you cant eat the scenery thus they went 350 miles north and caught a ship from Hamburg to America. My family also from pretty areas in Scotland and Slovakia:))
