I have eaten at the Schwaben House six times over the past two years. It is always excellent in every way.....food quality, atmosphere, service and value. This is more than just a German restaurant as other items are on the menu. Two in our group had the salmon and the other beef filet medallions. Their soups are the best in... More

I will firstly state I am not familiar with German cuisine. This was my first experience with a restaurant that considers itself to represent refined German cuisine in the USA. I have eaten in Germany itself, but none of that would have been called "fine" dining. The Schwaben House is "fine" dining with a beautiful atmosphere and presentation, and very... More

I guess I'm used to larger portions at lesser prices. We ordered pork tenderloins and the meat didn't cover the buns. The sides were good but again, smaller portions. I felt it was fairly expensive given the amt. of food you get. The restaurant was fairly quiet but service average at best. It seemed we waited a long time for... More

My wife and I are always hunting for authentic German restaurants as we travel across the country. Good German restaurant are hard to find. This restaurant was SPECTACULAR, in every way. The waitress was very accommodating and the food was fantastic. I can't imagine ever getting tired of this place. We will be back.

Searching TripAdvisor while in Greenville for a business trip, I noticed that there was a German restaurant - my favorite. It is difficult to get authentic German because preparing this type of food takes time and many people don't like to wait. I ordered my favorite beer - Warsteiner Premium Verum. That's when I knew my waitress was from Germany... More

Once again we had a delightful evening at the Schwaben House even though Annette, the delightful owner/hostess/waitress was off for the evening. As always there was a nice selection of draft German beer, my Paulaner Lager was particularly delightful and paired beautifully with my Sausage Plate, a special of the evening. All three sausages were excellent and perfectly prepared and... More

The food is excellent and they have a beautiful back patio. Very nice ambiance inside and outside + great service. We sat outside so our only complaint was the flies and mosquitos. They should probably consider purchasing a bug zapper and/or several citronella candles to keep their patio pleasant.

Usually stop in Greenville on the way back home from busi5trips and used to stop at various places near 85. Had a customer recommend Schwaben House and wow, so worth the extra time to stop! Fantastic authentic German food. I would not miss if you have the opportunity!

We visited this restaurant last night to try it out. My parents have been before and really like the food. The food is tasty. But, customer experience is lacking. My dad wanted to make a substitution on his meal and was told "you know this is not an American restaurant". He just wanted home fries instead of potato salad. She... More
