This restaurant is no longer open it's open under a different name called River Hofbrau so if you were looking for Schobel's it's no longer hear the new restaurant has more of a Texas Hill country theme to it that's trying to be German

Delicious Southern dishes with great variety and ample buffet portions. Terrific desserts! Watch the open/close hours and be careful if you are at the later end of the meal hours as choices do diminish. Great decor and good family atmosphere with bar service.

Great buffet. Near "home cooked" items with a German flavor. All items are fresh and well presented. Always clean and staff are friendly.

It's just the buffet..and it wasn't good at all. They didn't even have any potatoes! We live in New Braunfels and this is a poor representation of the great places we have to eat here. I don't think it's under the same management and if...More

No refills on tea and water, staff was too busy. The available meat on the buffet was greasy and tough. There was plenty of gristle on the meat portions. I endured two days of IBS after eating here. I will never go back. Never. The...More

Knew it was a buffet. And you can order off the menu. Had both the breakfast and supper here. And hated it. Breakfast wasn't great and had to wait forever for the buffet to get refilled.
