Get your schnitzel here and you won't be disappointed. With or without gravy, with red cabbage or sauerkraut and roasted potatoes. The food is made right there with fresh ingredients and you can really taste it. Staff is friendly and the portions are huge. The place is not huge so it's a good idea to go at an off time,... More

Went with 5 co-workers at lunch and here's my take. First, it was very busy and it was a good idea we booked ahead. The portion sizes were generous; this includes the sandwiches, which one of our group had to cut in half first. I had the Austrian Schnitzel and both the Schnitzel and the potatoes side were fantastic. The... More

A friend asked if I wanted to go to the Schnitzel Works for lunch, I am not overly fond of schnitzel so I checked their online menu to see what else they offered. I found a nice variety of other offerings (smoked meat, classic Reuben and roasted sirloin) so I said yes let's go. When we arrived at the restaurant... More

We never learn, and maybe that's a good thing. We always go the Schnitzel Works hungry and order accordingly. We never finish what we order and end up taking the left overs home for dinner or lunch the next day. The portions are substantial and the pork schnitzel is fabulous, served in a variety of national flavours on a bun.... More

Best schnitzel in the region. Generous portions, the fried, juicy piece of meat overwhelms the big bun. Warm and friendly staff, proud of their product, which is becoming all too rare... Great onion rings too!! Selection is wide but not overwhelming, prices are great too.

Huge schnitzel, great toppings, good service, good price. Highly recommended. My wife and I both had the schnitzel on a bun, I had the canadian with bacon and cheddar, my wife had the polish with sauerkraut I believe. Could hardly finish it.

Had their Slovac Schnitzle with the egg on top. The presentation is very good. Service is quick. A big screen tv is a great entertainment while eating.

What a great find when we stopped in one day to this tiny little place on Cyrville Road. Nothing to look at from outside and the inside is simple but the food is great! If you love schnitzel, speatzle and sauerkraut, this is the place to go. It is only open from 11-4 so caters to the lunch crowd. Portions... More
