Get out your lederhosen, spruce up your dirndls and prepare to eat and drink German style — It’s time for Oktoberfest at Middendorf’s!

The popular Middendorf’s restaurant, which has been famous for its thin-fried catfish since 1934, is featuring Oktoberfest again this year, a tradition that began in 2008 at the original Manchac location, after owners Horst and Karen Pfiefer bought the landmark restaurant. In 2019, the dynamic couple opened their new Slidell location, which loyal fans called “Dorfers” love to frequent.

Authentic German meals are prepared by Horst himself (he grew up in Germany), which is why the Oktoberfest meals and the days they are offered are split amongst the Manchac and Slidell locations. A joyous tone is set by lively music played on the accordion by Horst’s adored brother, Heinz Pfeifer, who flies to Louisiana from Germany each year just for this Oktoberfest celebration.

Join in the Oktoberfest fun every Wednesday and Thursday at Middendorf’s Manchac and every Friday at Middendorf’s Slidell Oktober 7- November 13. A different menu will be available each week (scroll down to see!), and for guests who dine at Middendorf’s all six weeks, they will get a special Oktoberfest prize. Patrons can join the fun by dressing up in German attire – lederhosen and dirndls – just like Heinz and the front of house staff. For all the details, log onto www.middendorfsrestaurant.com.

Middendorf’s Slidell is located at 1951 Oak Harbor Blvd., Slidell, LA in St. Tammany Parish. Middendorf’s Manchac is located at 30160 Hwy 51 S., Akers (Manchac), LA in Tangipahoa Parish. Both restaurants are conveniently located right off the interstate, and they are open Wednesday-Sunday, 10:30am-9:00pm. Both will serve the same menu.
