I guess I'm used to larger portions at lesser prices. We ordered pork tenderloins and the meat didn't cover the buns. The sides were good but again, smaller portions. I felt it was fairly expensive given the amt. of food you get. The restaurant was...More

Searching TripAdvisor while in Greenville for a business trip, I noticed that there was a German restaurant - my favorite. It is difficult to get authentic German because preparing this type of food takes time and many people don't like to wait. I ordered my...More

Once again we had a delightful evening at the Schwaben House even though Annette, the delightful owner/hostess/waitress was off for the evening. As always there was a nice selection of draft German beer, my Paulaner Lager was particularly delightful and paired beautifully with my Sausage...More

The food is excellent and they have a beautiful back patio. Very nice ambiance inside and outside + great service. We sat outside so our only complaint was the flies and mosquitos. They should probably consider purchasing a bug zapper and/or several citronella candles to...More

We visited this restaurant last night to try it out. My parents have been before and really like the food. The food is tasty. But, customer experience is lacking. My dad wanted to make a substitution on his meal and was told "you know this...More

Family and I had lunch here today. The food was good, but it wasn't great. I had the cheese spaetzle. The cheese sauce was distinctly odd and not what I expected, having lived in the Schwabia region of Germany. I asked our server what kind...More

Hi Travelin_Schoolin, I am sorry you found our restaurant disappointing and that we didn't live up to your expectations. You are right, we could import or buy the more expensive cheeses like Emmantaler, Gruyere or Raclette, (which are regionally more authentic), but then unfortunately we...More

It was my first time here for lunch with a co-worker. I tried the Jäger Schnitzel. I forgot the name of the dish my co-worker tried but there's a picture of it. The spätzle tasted homemade. The server was very attentive and delightful. I would...More

Sarah, you are obviously a minority in your opinion. I came on this site to write a great review, but was compelled to respond to yours. If one didn't know any better, i would think you work for or have a relationship with that other restaurant you mentioned. By mentioning a competitor it discredits your review. I happened to have been there this weekend, and it was by far one of the finest dining experiences I have had in a long time....not to mention that the food was as authentic as it gets. I personally was very impressed. My hats off to all of them!

Nope - I live several hours from both places. If you look at my other reviews, I tend to suggest other places if the original was bad. The food was awful - my guest who lived in Germany for years agreed. No clue why... More

Do you have gift cards available? I live in Denver but have family there and I thought a restaurant gift card for Christmas would be nice.
