It is located in a not so crowded street but the food there is definitely worth giving a try! I tried the salad and the bf had the pork. The salad was really really good with perfect dressing! Yums!

This place is a fair distance from the main Altstadt area, but was probably the best rustic pork & beer meal I had while I was in Nürnberg, and a great price: I think it was around €11 for the lot. I was so pleased I snapped a picture to send home to make my pork-knuckle-loving friends jealous. I would... More

While this restaurant doesn’t look any super and is bit hidden behind the Main train station, it would be a big pity to miss it. I went there with one friend of mine and we were both very surprised how the food in this reasonably priced restaurant tastes. I recommend to make a reservation, because it can be very busy... More

My fiancé and I decided to come here for two reasons – the menu and the positive trip advisor reviews. It’s a little off the beaten track (the opposite side of the Hauptbahnhof to the old town) but not too far to walk. The decor inside is rustic and welcoming. We arrived late in the afternoon and there were only... More

I found the restaurant “Schäufelwärtschaft” here at Trip Advisor and read the postings, so we visited this restaurant and we had a great dinner. Both we had “Schäufele”, a typical Bavarian food. It’s a big peace of pork meat from the pork shoulder with a bone. From the form of the bone comes the name “Schäufele”, because the bone looks... More

We visited this restaurant when on holiday in Nuremburg on the basis of reviews on Tripadvisor. We are so glad we did! This was the best meal of our holiday by some distance, and I would walk back to this restaurant from my house if I could. We ate outside in the courtyard on a hot summer night, and just... More

We ate at this restaurant on our second night in town ( on advice of trip advisor # 1 rating ). The food was good but the menu was very limited. You had a choice of pork shoulder (excellent) or schnitzel. The third choice is a small portion of pork shoulder.

In town for just one night, we walked to the restaurant from near the train station. Just what you want in a German restaurant. Many types of beer that were terrific. This place is all about the pig. The shoulder of pork is exceptional. Had it with a side of red cabbage and sauerkraut. Cabbage was terrific and the sauerkraut... More

We ended up eating here twice during a 10 day trip to N'berg. Fantastic - it's basically shoulder of pork and a beer, but it's the best shoulder of pork you'll ever eat. No question. The potato dumpling I could take or leave, but it's all about the pork and the red cabbage. We went with colleagues and then ended... More
