If you like home-cooked German/American food, Schneider's is the perfect place to go. Superb, consistent quality makes it a winner.

There used to be a lot of German restaurants in this area, but no more. So, decided to try Schneider's. Though the Menu was quite extensive, less than half the menu was German food. The Schnitzels were OK, but I was thinking about dumplings and gravy, etc. Also, what disturbed us was the open cooking area with several microwaves in... More

We ate here one night while staying by the beach. The food was good and staff friendly. The serving portions were plenty with enough to take home for the next day.

Went here for lunch with family. I looked forward to going there as there are not a lot of good german restaurants in the area. So many choices. They have a good variety of sausages, we all tried a few different ones. I would like to go back to try some of their other items. THe sausages were served with... More

One of the last German holdouts in the area...you won't find many in New Jersey these days. We're always greeted by big, pretty smiles from Tiffany and Ioana...their service is filled with laughs (in a good way!) My friends and I meet there to down beers (BOYB that saves you $$ folks!), hangout and dine on Bavarian traditional dishes. Go... More

Owner is very congenial and friendly - a hot balloon enthusiast. Waitress was polite and helpful. Food is good, hot with plentiful servings. Reasonable prices. Many choices on menu (liver, burgers, soup, sandwiches). Easy to get to and they have their own parking lot. They have no liquor license but allow you to bring your own and will even direct... More

My grandparents were German, met grandfather a butcher and chef at Gasthaus Kaiser Wilhelm in Eisenach, so I know what real German cooking tastes like. Schneiders is a decent attempt and a good value but it's not gourmet dining. The place is old and eclectic with a mishmash decor, kind of like a Roadhouse in Bavaria. I had the jagerschnitzel,...

There are not too many places like it left in NJ. This authentic Bavarian restaurant has all of the old world charm and atmosphere. The food was served hot and fresh and the service was impeccable. The only concern is the decor has not changed in over 40 years. The specialty items on the menu are to die for and... More

My sister and I ate dinner here Saturday 12/5/15. Very quick to seat us. Waitress came quickly to take the drink order. Came back quickly and took our food order. We were initially excited. Place was decorated with license plates from all over. This is where anything good ended. We never saw our waitress again. She was not in the... More

My family and I ate here a few weeks ago (Saturday, September 26, 2015). It was my mother-in-law’s birthday, and she picked to go here to celebrate the occasion. If she only knew what the evening’s results would be, we’d have chosen McDonald’s over Schneider’s. Or perhaps we would’ve gotten hot dogs from 7-11, which would have been a better... More
