My husband and I found Schwaben House by accident several years ago and we come here several times a year for special occasions. The food has been consistently delicious through the years. Another consistency has been the frosty nature of the serving staff and owner. We are both Northerners but have lived here for 20+ years and agree that there... More

We had a small family celebration at Schwaben House with family visiting from Greenville, Boston, Chicago, Germany, and in between. The owners could not have been more accommodating and gracious. They reserved the out-door patio space for our party and it was set up beautifully with an air of casual elegance. The food was amazing from appetizer to desserts. Everything... More

We had a very enjoyable evening at the Schwaben House. We enjoyed every course f r om the appetizer to the deserts. The salads were great and we enjoyed the yaeger and the winner schnitzel. I ate everything our server brought. Our server was great but seemed a little stretched out, taking care of the outside group and our table.... More

My wife and I came to this place today. It was good but not amazing. I guess maybe our expectations were a tad too high after recently coming back from Germany. The food was good and the prices were fair. Overall I would come back here again. The server does speak fluent German. And every one was very nice.

We have friends that live in Stuttgart. Our teenage girls have not had a European experience yet though, so I thought we would give this place a try for some German American food. I was hoping at least they would have some sort of struedel. Wow, was i in for a pleasant surprise! The restaurant itself has an outdoor patio,... More

MY wife and I were staying in Greenville overnight and decided to try something different than my typical steak or seafood choices. Saw the excellent rating on Schwaben House and decided to give it a try. It was excellent and authentic. Salads were great with a mix of veggies and greens. My wife had the Weiner Schnitzel with German Potato... More

Like in 2014 I was for my company in Greenville. The quality of the german food has not changed since then and is still excellent . The waitress is very pretty and helpful. Also there ist a beautiful terrace behind the house so that you can eat outdoors if you want. it´s really a beautiful place!
