This reminds me of the authentic regional German dishes grandma Vi could whip up, complete with the cat on the front porch! Well cooked potatoes, my favorite Jagerschnitzel, finished off with the peach cobbler, my mouth waters just thinking about it. Like restaurants in Germany- you have to pay for water. This is not fast food. you want that, go... More

Living in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas we are inundated with Mexican Restaurants. I have a friend who has been telling me about this restaurant for years. He loves the Sour Brautten. It is arguably the best he has tasted. I had the Chicken Corden Blau which was fantastic. Huge amount of food for the money. There is... More

Went with a group of coworkers that have visited Schnider's each time they are in town. What a friendly staff. It was way to hot for the outside beer garden (next time). So we had to sit inside. I had the brat's which were great. The owner stopped by and asked our thought on the food. We provided our feedback,... More

We arrived at 5 . There was 12 of us. We had reservations. I have had sauerbraten here before and it was good. This time it wasn't even passable. Small portions the meat was barely warm the spaetzl was cold, no gravy. They did heat it to warm and brought out small bowls of gravy without a spoon or ladle... More

After reading some reviews on the place decided to see for our self. It is a little out of the way but well worth finding. We went on good Friday and it was not overly busy. They have German Beer...even some non alcohol. They have a special for the day or you can order off the menu. We sat outside... More

We have learned the meals are too much for a couple of seniors. This time we ordered one meal and an extra salad. Was lots for us. Several German beers on tap and domestic wines available. Ursula and staff very good. This was a Friday night and the entertainment was good. Always enjoy coming here.

I've been wanting to go for a while, It has a great out door seating section which is nice during these cool winter nights. My family and I sat and were waited on by a very nice waiter. He helped us choose our food, which was great since we're new to German food. The food was delicious and got her... More

GOOD German food! A small place and set back off the road a bit - but it's worth the hunt for it. If you like German food - it's the best place to go. TRULY authentic! Try the schnitzel and spaetzel! They serve good German beer too! Heaping helpings of food, you won't leave hungry that's for sure. Wait staff... More

Went on Friday night and it was very busy. Sign on the road is not lit so makes it a little hard to find. While we a table right away it took a while for a waitress to come around and just give us a menu. Took another while to get drinks but the beers did come in large glasses/steins... More

This is as good as it gets. Enjoyed the Oktoberfest draft beer, the bratwurst and the schnitzel. All fresh and tasty, perfectly done. I missed the strudel as they had ran out. Highly reccommended!
