Three of us girls went for lunch. Roast beef sandwiches and pop in the smallest glasses I have ever seen. Too many other excellent restaurants in the area to go to. Heard so much about Schwabl's, and we were so very disappointed with the quantity that you get for your money.

I've only had the Beef on Weck there but it is delicious and a very large sandwich. Cost was about $10.00 but you get what you pay for.

I don't understand some of the negative comments about Schwab's. The sevice was excellent. Kristen our server did not rush us one bit! We finished our cocktail before she took our order which was per our request. The cocktails were excellent and not watered down with too much ice! We both had the Beef on Weck with German potato salad... More

We are formerly from Western New York and have gone to Schwabl's for over 25 years. On visiting this month, we again went there for a roast beef sandwich and were very surprised at how expensive our meal was. We ordered a roast beef on kimmelweck sandwich, and added mashed potatoes with gravy. It also came with coleslaw and beets.... More

We always try to eat here when we visit Buffalo, NY. The best Beef on Weck in the city. We both had the beef on weck meal. Wonderful German potato salad, fries were o.k., pickled beets really good. Beef done to perfection. Buns could have been toasted a bit more. Horseradish on table has a wonderful kick.

This restaurant serves average tasting home cooked dinners. The portion amount is good and fulfilling. Their main focus must be on adult beverages because there was not many options for soft drinks. They do not have Pepsi or coke but a local beverage served straight out of the glass bottle (not good tasting). After dinner if you still find yourself... More

Met a friend here for a Christmas lunch. We each had a Tom & Jerry, a warm drink made with rum and brandy, with cream added. Different. I enjoyed it. We each had the signature beef on weck sandwich. The meat was tender and the doneness was as ordered. The meat, however, didn't 't have much flavor. Two drinks and... More

Took my kids there last fall and the food was terrible. Thought maybe they were having an off day. Went for Tom and Jerry's the 26th. They were great but the staff was less than pleasant. No conversation. We stood at the BAR ! Which seemed to the people behind the bar like a bad idea. No stools, no chairs.... More
