This is the real deal. The owners are from Southwest Germany (=Schwaben) where I myself lived for 24 years and boy, did I enjoy the authentic food and very efficient and friendly service. It tasted just like I remembered it in Baden-Wuerttemberg. They had only two waitstaff that were so amazing. They made sure that the food made it to... More

I lived in Germany for a year, so I can say that they offer a pretty typical menu. My husband liked it, vut unfortunately since I am not crazy about heavy, fried foods it wasn't the type place that appeals to me

Wonderful place for dinner. A little more formal than some other places. Had a little trouble finding the place from the road. Great atmosphere and decorating. Even the bathrooms are nicely decorated! Had Maultaschen soup. It was good, but the broth was just a touch too salty for me. The salad was fabulous. The Jaeger schnitzel was good, as was... More

Old world service with chef sending out a free sample of something he just tried to see how you like it. Food is just like what I had in Bavaria and it is wunderbar. You feel more like a guest instead of customer. Dining at its finest. We drive 130 miles to eat there and it's worth the trip.

Celebrated our anniversary here on the outdoor deck. Wonderful friendly service made us feel like special guests. My wife visited Germany several times and said the food tookher back to those visits. It's a little pricey but the quality, quantity and presentation of food is worth it.

I love this place. I've been there one or two times a week for the last 6-7 weeks! Every time the food is amazing! The specials are truly special! I keep taking my friends there and they are taking their friends and family there. The atmosphere is perfect and the service is really great!

This is very authentic German food. I like very much eating there. People are friendly. The food is so much fantastic. I can not accept when people say this food is not good because there is no bratwurst or because food not enough to feed elephant. Germans do not eat bratwurst all day or every day or all the time....

Being married into a family from Swchabia I am very pleased with the food and atmosphere of the restaurant. For those of you who do not know Swchabia is located near or on borders of France and Italy so you see the food is going to be very European influenced. Hence the advertisement. I would recommend anyone to enjoy the... More

Went with family, spouse, three daughters and my mom. This was our 1st visit to Schwaben House since they relocated. The menu is different. The decor is different. The staff was different from our last visit. Most noticeably, the food was different. On the whole, we enjoyed our dinner. Our Waitress was engaging, friendly, informative and happy to answer all...
