We always try to eat here when we visit Buffalo, NY. The best Beef on Weck in the city. We both had the beef on weck meal. Wonderful German potato salad, fries were o.k., pickled beets really good. Beef done to perfection. Buns could have been toasted a bit more. Horseradish on table has a wonderful kick.

This restaurant serves average tasting home cooked dinners. The portion amount is good and fulfilling. Their main focus must be on adult beverages because there was not many options for soft drinks. They do not have Pepsi or coke but a local beverage served straight out of the glass bottle (not good tasting). After dinner if you still find yourself... More

Met a friend here for a Christmas lunch. We each had a Tom & Jerry, a warm drink made with rum and brandy, with cream added. Different. I enjoyed it. We each had the signature beef on weck sandwich. The meat was tender and the doneness was as ordered. The meat, however, didn't 't have much flavor. Two drinks and... More

Took my kids there last fall and the food was terrible. Thought maybe they were having an off day. Went for Tom and Jerry's the 26th. They were great but the staff was less than pleasant. No conversation. We stood at the BAR ! Which seemed to the people behind the bar like a bad idea. No stools, no chairs.... More

One of the BEST roast beef on kimmelweck sandwiches in WNY. Even though they have great menu options... I always get the roast beef special plate.Tender roast beef that is cooked perfectly and piled high on a fresh kimmelweck roll with homemade German potato salad and homemade pickled beets. Yummy. The German potato salad is just my Grandma used to... More

In addition to one of the top three roast beef on kimmelweck sandwiches in WNY this restaurant also as a pretty extensive selection of other traditional German themed and WNY bar/restaurant specialties. We lucked into them having liver dumpling soup as a daily special. I've had dumplings all over Germany and Austria, but Schwabl's is closest to my mom's. Nuff... More

We were in Buffalo for a few days in October and visited Schwabl's twice. There is no place like it, anywhere! The staff is always friendly and accommodating. When you walk in the door it's like going back decades in time. The beef on weck is the best! Loved the Tom and Jerry. I had two. We came in with... More

My husbands family is from buffalo so we come out a couple of times a year. We can't leave without a meal at schwabls. The atmosphere was straight out of the 1940s. The bartenders in their whites and the lady servers in their white dresses. Scott had a beef on wick....he was in heaven. I don't like the wick bun... More
