About Us

Here at The Heidelberg, we believe tradition and quality go hand in hand…

That’s why townies and newbies alike have frequented The Berg since 1963, proving that good food, good service and good company never go out of style. Consistency and hard work are key ingredients in The Heidelberg’s success, as well as the popular Fried Pork Loin and German Potato Salad you’ll find on our menu. (Not to mention our mouth-watering Reuben.)

Thank you Columbia, Missouri – for your continued support!

Between 1963 and now, a lot has changed – times – faces – places, but always there is The Heidelberg… where good times and good food are famous.

Have an upcoming event and need the perfect banquet room space? Celebrate with us! Our Banquet room and spacious upstairs patio provide ample space for your next party or get-together.

Located in Columbia, Missouri, ‘The Berg’ is a great spot for locals as well as college students.
