“Good lunch joint- great location”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Schu's about 6 times the past couple years. The food is good, the service better than good, prices fair and the location is great (across from the beach=great Lake view, especially on the patio dining area).

Only negative I have is the decor looks, well: tired. It reminds me of a 1985 family restaurant in "anywheresville" Midwest. Not necessarily a show-stopper bit a face lift could make it much better feeling while dining there. Love their burgers and salads and a great beer selection as well.

“Why we stay away”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

As a longtime local, this restaurant used to be pretty decent, however the last few times we have been there, we have been disappointed with the food, and lately the price. There are far too many great restaurants in Southwest Michigan to waste our time and money at Schu's. We won't be going back.

“Wonderful Food, Very Accomodating”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had a huge group out for a special dinner out in Saint Joseph--our extended family of 18 people! Shu's doesn't take reservations, but gladly gave us tips on when to come to get a table, got us set up in record time for a group our size, and was more than accommodating. The staff was excellent, our food was phenomenal, and we had a great time!

“Get the gumbo!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Covered outdoor seating and nice views inside too. We opted for a table by the window to take a break from the humidity. The salmon Blt was good - the salmon was cooked to perfection, but I would have just ordered as a fillet with some veggies - the fish was so good, I wanted to eat apart from the bread. The turkey panini was excellent as well - good portion size, but I couldn't eat the entire focaccia "roll" that it came on. The gumbo to start ROCKED - spicy and flavorful. Out server was excellent too, we are from out of town and he gave us wonderful recommendations about what to do for the rest of this rainy day.
