The dinner was great. We had the sampler for two and all of the items included were great tasting and well prepared. This is one of the better German restaurants that I have visited within the USA. The spätzle, sauerkraut, potato salad, and potato pancakes...More

This place has gone downhill over the years. I ordered the roast pork with red cabbage and german potato salad. It was good, our server was adequate but argumentative. Don't want to argue with my server. There is another restaurant closer to home. It's more...More

I'm sorry you were disappointed with your recent visit to Scharf's. We take great pride in our food and would like a chance to win you back. I'm not sure if you realize that the Sauerbraten must be cooked ahead of time. I don't think...More

Thanks for your review of Scharf's. It is always good to know our shortcomings. Sometimes when things are as busy as the night that you were in, things slip through the cracks. Please rest assured that your findings will be addressed. I already know what...More

The place was very nice atmosphere but the food was absolutely the worse I have ever had. The Schnitzel was frozen processed, the salad was from a bag, the potato pancakes were burned. I would NOT recommend this to anyone.

Have a few beers here while you still can! Few Buffalo institutions have preserved the past like Scharf's. This should be a destination for locals and visitors alike. The food (German traditional) and service are good and I can truly say you'll find no place...More

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 6 Deutsch Biers on tap and several more in bottles as well as the usual Domestic and Canadian brews. We also offer 5 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 Pork and more. On the American side, we have Roast Beef (dinners), Fried Chicken, Pork Chops and more. Our fish can be served breaded, battered or broiled. We also have Yellow Pike! Serving Buffalo since 1967. Patio open in season. Bar open Saturdays and Sundays at noon (limited menu available).
