Enjoyed our Sauerbraten dinner next to fireplace . Their Sea scallops are also very good too . They used to have a " meatloaf " ice cream , 😍 miss so much , sad that they don't have to many old flavors .

Snowy wet cold saturday night in January and soon homestyle warmth. Roast tenderloin was amazing. Pierogies and German style potato pancakes tremendous. Must have apple strussel with icecream for dessert. We will be back!!

My husband & I had been wanting to try this restaurant forever. Finally did. Everything about this restaurant is average. The salad bar, the menu selection, the food and the atmosphere are underwhelming The place was crowded early on a Thursday night. I do not get it. The decor was dated & shabby. The menu was a disappointment, Expected more... More

If you like home-cooked German/American food, Schneider's is the perfect place to go. Superb, consistent quality makes it a winner.

There used to be a lot of German restaurants in this area, but no more. So, decided to try Schneider's. Though the Menu was quite extensive, less than half the menu was German food. The Schnitzels were OK, but I was thinking about dumplings and gravy, etc. Also, what disturbed us was the open cooking area with several microwaves in... More

We ate here one night while staying by the beach. The food was good and staff friendly. The serving portions were plenty with enough to take home for the next day.

They have a good variety of sausages, we all tried a few different ones. I would like to go back to try some of their other items. THe sausages were served with... More

One of the last German holdouts in the area...you won't find many in New Jersey these days. We're always greeted by big, pretty smiles from Tiffany and Ioana...their service is filled with laughs (in a good way!) My friends and I meet there to down beers (BOYB that saves you $$ folks!), hangout and dine on Bavarian traditional dishes. Go... More

Owner is very congenial and friendly - a hot balloon enthusiast. Waitress was polite and helpful. Food is good, hot with plentiful servings. Reasonable prices. Many choices on menu (liver, burgers, soup, sandwiches). Easy to get to and they have their own parking lot. They have no liquor license but allow you to bring your own and will even direct... More

My grandparents were German, met grandfather a butcher and chef at Gasthaus Kaiser Wilhelm in Eisenach, so I know what real German cooking tastes like. Schneiders is a decent attempt and a good value but it's not gourmet dining. The place is old and eclectic with a mishmash decor, kind of like a Roadhouse in Bavaria. I had the jagerschnitzel,...
