This restaurant seems to be authentic German food. Decor is creative and unique. Music is not obnoxious, appropriate in volume. Red cabbage is outstanding. Also had green pea ravioli. Portion sizes are filling, but not overly large. Nice for a relaxing dinner with friends. The dessert of the month was Tiramisu, but did not order it since it wasn't offered... More

We visited Greenville (from Atlanta) and read the reviews before we arrived, knowing this would be an excellent choice. My husband loves German food (me, not so much), but we found both of our dishes to be delicious. My husband had their specialty of Maultaschen, which was like a German ravioli with pork and beef. I had the grilled chicken... More

Had the pork schnitzel sand which and soup which were both outstanding but the prices were a little too high. I will come back again for an expense report business lunch. Atmosphere is very nice but a little dark inside. They have outside seating. May come back and try for dinner or happy hour.

We went there for lunch. The food was average, however the portions were ridiculously small. My husband left there hungry and he isn't a huge eater. When he mentioned this to the waitress, she tried to upsell us dessert. The service was so-so. We waited about 5 minutes to be seated, even though there was no line and several of... More

I am by no means an expert on German food. Having said that, I know what I like and it was fantastic! The staff is very helpful in explaining their dishes and their beer selection is outstanding. Everything was delicious - cream of squash soup, spaetzel, potato salad, schnitzel, red cabbage. The location is a little tricky to find and... More

We were spending the night in Greenville and we checked Trip Advisor and saw this restaurant was ranked #1 in the area. We looked at the menu and couldn't figure out what several of the entrees even were, but we decided to try something different. I had the Maultasche with cheese spaetzle and it was absolutely unique and delicious. My... More

We learned that Schwaben House was finally open at its new location. We had lunch there on Friday and weren't disappointed. We've been waiting for months for them to open. First, the interior of this unassuming building has been decorated with real style. It is very up to date and classy. The space in the interior belies its exterior. The... More

I visited Schwaben Haus this evening and was pleasantly surprised. I am from Nuernberg Germany and always look for good authentic German food. I can truly say that I found that tonight. I had a Sauerbraten, dumpling and red cabbage. It was best I have tasted other when I go home to Nuernberg. Restaurant is quaint, implacable service, great atmosphere... More
