This bar is a Schlitz tide house. Really cool bar with a great selection. Great bar staff. We came for brunch and got the burrito and pastrami sandwich. Both were really good. The fries were over cooked but didn’t spoil our experience.

Went up to see Todd Carey do an album release party and show. The venue had good sound and the small bar being inside the same room of the venue was convenient. I didn’t have any food, just beer :-). Anyway, it is a good...venue to attend.More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked the show, but when the doors opened up it is a great little venue to see a show. Stage can be easily seen with good acoustics. They have a little bar towards the back to get...drinks. I recommend arriving early before your show and sitting in the tavern portion. Odds are it will be happy hour and they have some great deals. Decent local beer selection along with liquors. Bar staff in the tavern could be friendlier, but not that big of a deal. The ladies inside the venue were more friendly. We had a great night.More

I was at Schubas for a Monday night event. It was a Release Party for Todd Carey and his Future Throwback Album. The acoustics in the venue were really good. I was able to park on the street about 100 feet away. The main bar...is separate from the concert venue, but a small bar was within the concert venue. I would recommend attending events at this location.More

Nice tavern with a generous music venue. Beer was cold, with many choices, had some interesting cocktails - one with mezcal that was really nice - I don't remember what the name of it was.

This is a great venue for a show. The staff are friendly, the drinks are good, and the sound is great. I sincerely hope a band I love plays there again soon!

There is a reason why this place is packed on weekends. The food is great, there's tons of adult beverages flowing, and there's a wide variety of alternative dishes using tofu, seitain and more. I had tofu sliders with BBQ sauce and Cole slaw -...delicious! The restaurant serves lots of beef and chicken dishes as well as interesting salads, decadent desserts (homemade blueberry cobbler!) and more. They also specialize in a decadent Mac and cheese that can be served a million different ways. Our server was fantastic and patient. And prices were very reasonable. You could sit indoors or outdoors, even though there's not a lot of seating. And there is entertainment all the time. We'll gladly be back for another meal at Schubas!More

A really great brunch menu. The crab cakes with eggs and hollandaise were wonderful. And the smoked pork with tomatillo and eggs was worth the visit.

The food we had here was excellent. Typical bar menu items.The waitress was attentive. The atmosphere was dark but clean. There is an outside patio and entertainment. We were happy with cold beer and a juicy burger
