Schnitzel as big as a toilet lid!!!! Portions and quality is outstanding!!! The price for food and drink is very reasonably priced. There is no "Bedienung" (waitstaff) in the biergarten witch keeps the prices really low , however if you don't mind grabbing your own drinks and food and returning your plates and Biersteins and enjoy the beginning of der...

We came to this restaurant when visiting a friend stationed here in the Army. The open seating concept outside was nice and the schnitzel I ordered was bigger then my head! The food was wonderful and a great taste of traditional German fare. Great place for families as there are play areas for the kids.

Very typical German restaurant located in a forest. Although the drive to the place does not look promising (we went in February) then on arrival you're welcomed by a cozy authentic restaurant. Large variety of daily specials and pizzas. They serve nice local wine with the food as well.

First meal in Germany was at the Schiesshaus. Was not disappointed! Great amount of food for the price, friendly staff and location in the woods, North of the city.

I have been going here for years and it is a great experience every time. I love that it is located in the woods and it provides a terrific atmosphere. This is super kid friendly and there is plenty of room for your little ones to run around. Most of the eating is outdoors so warmer months is when you... More

This is probably one of the best places to eat in Schweinfurt. It is a bier garden in the middle of the woods with a self services kitchen in the summer. During the winter months you can get a seat inside a very rustic atmosphere. Great staff as it primarily family run and owned. It boasts local cuisine and very... More

A group of friends and co-workers road bicycles through the forest and up the dirt road to get to this popular, busy, boisterous outdoor beer garden. Biggest dishes of schnitzel you will ever see! I ordered the half size of jägerschnitzel and it was still big, but manageable. It came with fries and a pickled salad. Shouldn't have ordered the... More

Bring your appetite!! The portions are HUGE! Our families favorites are jäger schnitzel and pizza. You will get a lot of food for the price! The restaurant is somewhat hard to find and it's hard to park in the warm months(because it's always full!) but it's worth it!

The food here is simple and traditional fare, with large portions. If you order a regular size schnitzel be prepared to take home left-overs or sit awhile and contemplate if you could walk. Their pizzas are also an excellent choice with a great selection. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming and has an interesting play area for the kids.... More

My mom, a German native, raved about the Schisshaus's schnitzel and she was right--absolutely delicious! We used to run there from our house--a weissbier was quite the motivator! Moreover, the outdoor biergarten and big play-area/swing set for kids made it so easy and hassle-free to bring my nephew.
