The best in home-cooked German and American food. We also serve a great fish fry and other seafood, gluten-free, vegetarian choices and offer a kids menu. We have 5 Deutsch Biers on tap and several more in bottles as well as the usual Domestic and Canadian brews. We also offer 3 Wines from there and several others. Scharf's has a full liquor license. We bottle our home-made German House Salad Dressing. We offer catering for private parties and office parties. In-house parties are also welcome. Potato Pancakes are our claim to fame, hand-grated and mixed on site, using graters imported from the old country. Rouladen, Sauerbraten, and Schnitzels are on the menu, besides Roast Duck and Pork. On the American side, we have Roast Beef (on weck or dinner), Fried Chicken, Pork Chops and more. Our fish can be served breaded, battered or broiled. We also have Yellow Pike! Serving Buffalo since 1967. Coupons are available on our website. Patio open.

An OK meal

First, Scharf's is no longer on Crossman Street. In 2014 that location closed and they reopened at 2683 Clinton St, West Seneca, NY. Secondly, it's not a place that we will probably go back to. It's not that the food was bad - it was just OK. The potato pancakes were large, fat and without... read more

I grew up eating a lot of German food, so I was excited to find a German restaurant in the Buffalo area. However, I was disappointed by pretty much everything I ate there (and I am not a picky eater!). The salad bar (if you can call it that) had mostly lettuce. The bread that came before the meal tasted... More

My son and I stopped here the other night. Got seated right away. Took a little bit to get a drink order but, no big deal. Ordered the special of the day which was a sampler platter for 2. Good way to try things we have never had before. The food was very tasty! Not too many authentic German restaurants... More

We have been wanting to try the "New" "Old Scharfs German Restaurant & Bar - new because they are now located on Clinton St in Buffalo, NY and old because Scharf's has been around for decades. The current location has a lot more parking and the restaurant is much larger. There is a nice display case inside the restaurant with... More

Probably the worst restaurant meal I've had in many years. My grilled pork chops did not have a grill mark on them...obviously fried in a pan. The garlic mashed potatoes were watery and had gravy on them so I couldn't eat them with a fork. Red cabbage had absolutely no taste. Salad bar was boring. I was with 6 other... More

I have heard about this as being one of Buffalo's only German Restaurants and even signed up as a Facebook friend a few years ago when they were in dire straights. I am sorry I ever heard of the place and probably will give newbies a bad 'taste' for German Food. First of all it is a DUMP. They moved... More

Nothing good about this trip at all...sorry we wasted our time & money. we entered the restaurant and were asked if we had reservations, which really weren't necessary, there were a few empty tables the people that did have reservations were at the bar. We were accommodated with a table in the bar area, which was ok, but crowded. It... More

4 of us walked out hungry after a $84 bill. The German sampler platter for 2 was barely suited for 1 person. The "Schnitzel" was so small, I would be ashamed as a restauranteur to call it a Schnitzel. Our anger over such a rip-off makes it hard to rate the food's taste. In Germany this offer would consist of... More
