We had just arrived into town and we really wanted some spätzle. The reviews for this place seemed decent enough so we decided to give it a go. The first warning sign perhaps should have been the cold sterile LED lighting and the fact that the place was empty aside from an old couple at dinner time. But we stayed... More

Awesome chow. Highly recommend. The schweinhaxen and schnitzel in wine sauce were great, as was the brautwurst - a hit with the kids.

We loved our visit. The food was good and the service was very friendly and helpful. The cordon blue was fabulous! Portion sizes were good and we loved the homemade sausage.

I agree with several other writers that there was a general unfriendliness to the staff. Maybe just local German culture that we are not used to? A large group of us went there one night - we were expected, we had reservations - and they seemed put off by us from the beginning. The food was exceptionally slow coming out... More

When Spaetzle is part of the name of your place, you have to figure it will be real good, and it was! My delicious spaetzle accompanied a perfectly executed pork schnitzel; my wife's came with mushroom sauce a la Jaegerschnitzel. Nice local rotwein. Friendly and efficient service. A nice respite from the more directly obvious tourist places.

After a morning of walking around Rothenburg, we found a quiet street about a block from the main square where we came upon the Spaetzle-Schwob. We sat outside at cute little tables flanked with pots filled with flowers. To our surprise this little gem of a restaurant served us the BEST Spaetzle we had on our trip to Germany. Soft,... More

Haven't been treated this badly in a while. Came for lunch with a few family members. Waited for 15 minutes before the waiter ( and they had one person working on Saturday! ) got to us with menus. Waited for 40 minutes after ordering until the food arrived. Weren't even warned about the wait time. They also automatically added 19%... More

Popped in for lunch with my wife as she had a yearning for potato pancakes. They were on the menus served with smoked salmon and a dill sauce. Pancakes were thin and crisp with generous portion of smoked salmon. Service with a smile and good price: a great place.

A group of us went here for a specialty local food dinner. I had the Pork knuckle with potatoe dumplings & it was amazing. Also the choice of local cakes were fabulous. Their mum prepares all the "local" food.

Dinner and service here was excellent. The salad was delicious. I enjoyed the salmon and my husband loved the spaetzle. Definitely try the Black Forest cake for dessert.
