The atmosphere inside is really cool. The food is ok but not as good as they say in other reviews. We were there for breakfast, the bacons were so overcooked, they were tasting a little carbonized. We also got encouraged ( I don't want to say forced...) by the waitress to give more receipt (and she still didn't seem so... More

Ate here twice during my last trip. Good Reuben, good German food overall. Folks in our group tried just about everything on the menu, and everyone enjoyed their food. Price is a little high for a Deli, but worth it. Service was good.

Lunch time and we met in this quaint place that has nostalgia. The root beer was good and very sweet but worth the taste. I had the split pea soup - delicious. Great service and good atmosphere.

We had a great, late lunch here. Both of us had the Rueben sandwiches, hot potato salad, the incomparable root beer, and shared the house-special cheese cake. Everything was excellent, the staff were all friendly. I'll have to come back for the bread pudding!

My wife and I met another couple there. We had eaten a late breakfast and were not going to order. We were told that the food (sandwiches) were great. We ordered a Reuben and split it. It was an excellent sandwich. Will definitely go there again.

My wife and I ate breakfast here. It's very good and a great traditional breakfast. Service was good, food was good, and it's located in a very neat old building. You can't go wrong if you want to start your day here with a hearty breakfast.

On our most recent visit to Schilo's deli, my husband had the chicken and dumplings daily special, and I had the Papa Fritz sandwich with potato salad and vegetable soup. No complaints about the food. It was all delicious. This location is right on the River Walk, so it is always packed. I really feel for the wait staff! They... More

I loved the heritage of this restaurant. The menu tells the story and we heard they are celebrating 100 years in business! The homemade rootbeer floats are a must try! I personally would request extra ice cream because they are somewhat conservative with the serving size. But the flavor was amazing. We also had the fresh pretzels which were delicious.... More
