We visit the Schnitzel House each year for either Mother's Day or my Mothers Birthday. She was born in Germany and going to the Schnitzel House gives her a feeling of being back home. The food and the staff are sensational. I would recommend to others to go.

This place is better suited as a catering business. The food was quite good- but everything felt chintzy. Not enough sauce, dry spaetzle, no seasoning, charged for water etc. The building was run down, men's room closed so everyone was using the same restroom with a busted lock on the stall. We felt like we paid high end dining prices for a less than mediocre experience.
However, the schnitzel did have a perfect sear. The curry wurst sauce was excellent, even though we were charged for the sample. We had fresh kraut which was a treat. As I said, if I were catering something I would give this place another try

We were craving some spaetzel and had been wanting to try this place for some time. No joke, the frankfurter was delish. We will be back!

This awesome German restaurant is tucked away, and I'm so glad we found it. The service was impeccable. The food came out quickly and was made perfectly. We've been searching for a high-quality local German place and we're thrilled we found one!

Not quite what we expected from the picture. It's just a pizza hut redo, and not very good at that. We drive over an hour to go for a special birthday. Not worth the time. Although you do get a plate full, but limited on German food choices. Very disappointed. Will not go back.

Very nice German restaurant. Food was good , so was the service. If you want schnitzel they have it many different ways. We tried 2 types plus the brauts and potato pancakes. Highly recommend the brauts.

Second time to this place, I had the combo GF with snitzel and brats.
Both were wonderful, I was surprised by the lack of other diners.
This place is truly a gem, would go there more often if I lived closer.

This is a local gem. The food is fresh and delicious. I ordered the “let the chef surprise you” where you specify the meat, chicken pork etc and the chef makes you a meal based on the meat you choose. I got the pork. It was absolutely delicious with fresh vegetables and a really fenourous portion. I will definitely be back.

Quite a gem!!! Nothing to look at inside and out, the food was awesome and freshly prepared. Had the schnitzel with hunters sauce was awesome. The potato cakes were also awesome never had them with caraway seeds. The owners were very welcoming, Open Table had the address correct but the map depiction was incorrect. Called and Ed gave great directions. We warned to make reservations friday to sunday

The Schnitzel House is a great place for good, basic German cuisine. Our group shared kartoffelpuffers as appetizers, we all had the red cabbage salad and most of our group had schnitzel of one kind or another. As a finish, we shared a freshly-baked German chocolate cake. Our server was very attentive and she and the hostess explained each dish we asked about. As I said earlier, this is good, basic German food. That's what you go to the Schnitzel House for. Alles war ausgezeichnet! (Note: the Schnitzel House is currently BYOB.)

When we drove up, I wasn't sure about the restaurant. It looks like an old Pizza Hut. However, don't let the outside fool you. The food is authentic German cuisine and well worth the money. We talked with one of the owners/chef and she was delightful and could not do enough to make our meal delightful I had the pork schnitzel with lemon sauce and it was a good size portion. The potato soup was pureed and delicious, but very filling. Our friend had the crepe for dessert and oh, did I wish I had room to eat one. You can tell, even if you think German food is peasant eating, it was made with fresh ingredients and very authentic.
This is a BYOB.
Not fancy, just good food reasonably priced. Plastic table cloths, so don't dress up.
p.s. get the baked potato with cucumber sauce as an appetizer.

First I must say the food here was wonderful. However when we first walked in, the resturant's over all décor was lack luster. So much so, that had I not made reservations I might have walked out. I'm glad I didn't, I enjoyed my meal. I understand it used to be a pizza and they did a great job changing that look, but I think getting a professional decorator in that place would seriously go a long way. And maybe tying in a German theme. Maybe murals of the Rhineland, something anything that says Germany would be really fun. I think this resturant has a lot of potential and certainly great food and wonderful service. I just hope that eventually they can give the place the ambience it deserves.

Disappointed. No beer. Food was just ok. Looks like the family lives at the restaurant, and it's hard to imagine a German restaurant in an old Pizza Hut, especially when you have lived in Germany.
