Awesome to be in the oldest bar in Austin. Very popular for locals and can be crowded at lunch. German style food is offered and the Ruben sandwich was excellent as was the German Burger. A wide selection of beers at a good price.

This is a fairly typical German bier garten with seating both indoors and outdoors. They have an excellent selection of beers and a good menu for casual eating. Scholz's is over 100 years old and is a frequent gathering place for both UT students and state legislators.

I go here twice a month with friends. The service is always good, the food good and the beer cold. A good array of beers. A good selection of German food and American food. German burgers and Reubens are fantastic. Bar b que entres are good. Outdoor seating is ample. Oldest German style place in the city. A favorite.

BBQ baked potato is delicious, you can never go wrong with it. Avoid going right at noon but normally I pretty quick lunch stop.

During visit to Austin we went to Scholz Garten for German food as name indicates. We were surprised they also serve Tex-mex and barbecue. We stuck with the German and enjoyed the Wiener schnitzel and jaeger schnitzel which were very good along with sides of red cabbage and German potato salad. The restaurant is in an older building with wooden... More

My husband and I took a ride share here for a quick bite to eat before an event. Upon entering the garden area we noticed a small party going on near the stage. In the back of the patio area near the outside bar there was seating available which is where we ended up. We ordered a beer at the... More

Historical hangout for University of Texas Longhorns fans before and after sporting events. The bar is over 100 years old and worth checking out and menu contains some authentic German cuisine. The food is good. Nothing fancy here where you can sit inside or outside. There seems to be a band playing outside where a small permanent stage is setup.... More

I hadn't been to Scholz's more than twice since my college years when I hung out there multiple times a week since it was only three blocks from my dorm. When I found myself just a stone's throw (with a good arm) away on a business trip, I had to go. It is still a great place to hang out... More

You have to go here to see where all the movers and shakers of old Austin drank. The bar is very impressive with it's size and history. The building is amazing. But, if you order the food, expect it to taste like the floors.
