The Schwaben Haus has moved and is open at their new location at 1810 Laurens Road, Greenville,SC. These folks have been renovating this present location for some time and you have to see this place. The owner has used her touch/talents to decorate the environment, that surrounds you. From the new bar( Truly Beautiful ) area and to the unique touches ( even in the restrooms!!) she has designed a wonderful environment for your dining experience. The atmosphere is not rushed and the service is excellent! Last but not least is the wonderful menu and the food! Their presentation is top notch and the dishes are always delicious and consistent. I had the Jager Schnitzel with the mushroom sauce, complimented with the Spatzlel and the German Mixed Salad. Truly delicious. Their desert menu varies with some specials, but I chose the Apple Strudel, which is always excellent. I am so glad that they are open once again and they are now owners of the property and plan on more renovations/improvements and personal touches. Great place, Great owners and Great Food. Go, you will not be disappointed.

There are few restaurants that can make your dining experience perfect. After learning about Schwaben House in the GV News we tried it for lunch. Then returned two days later for dinner. Having traveled to Germany on business since 1983 I have had many great meals in German restaurants and learned they are about perfection. Annette, the owner, has managed to transfer the perfection of southern Germany to Greenville.

The soup, the sea bass, the dessert and the expresso could not have been better. The wine list is limited but adequate and my guess more wines will be added as this restaurant becomes more discovered. Greenville has several good restaurants but you will be hard pressed to find one with better balance. All was great and since it met all of my requirements I gave it five stars.

My family is from Germany and my German grandmother raised me on hearty German/Polish foods and this restaurant is wonderful if you like German foods. The portions are just like served in Germany, large and relaxing. There is no such thing as a 'quick meal' if you are German, as pauses between servings are good for the digestion! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, German or not!

Schwaben House reopened a few weeks ago on Laurens Road.

I went there for dinner on the first week and although food was good, service was simply awful and it took me nearly 2 hours to complete a full menu after waiting for ages between plates for attention from the waitress. On the other end, the staff was very attentive with their German customers taking the time to discuss with each of them so I guess if you work for the right company or are German you will feel at home at Schwaben House otherwise there are better places around.

After a too long hiatus, Schwaben House has opened in their new location on Lauren's Road. The atmosphere is still charming and intimate. The food is indescribably delicious and the service is stellar! Kudos to Annette and staff. Welcome back!
