Hungarian Goulash, a side of potato

Hungarian Goulash, a side of potato pancakes and dark German beer: doesn't get better than this late night dining.

Fun place to throw birthdays for adults

I have visited Germany twice in the past year and loved it, I would live there, but besides the point, I thought I'd bring my husband to this place for his birthday. It was amazingly fun with the polka band, large portions of beer and food, and the ""schtick"" is that the server is abrupt like. This is all show, the waitstaff is actually really nice and accomodating, you just better know what you want when they come around to take your order. My husband loved this place so much that he...view more brings all his friends for their birthdays to Schroeders and they love it as well, das boot is amazing but you should check out their 5 liter monster stein of beer, beware of falling in! Great food, great atmosphere, it's fantastic.view less

Don't Do It!

As a German who appreciates good food and nice people I would not recommend this place to anyone. Food was lousy, the service was extremely rude. No more words needed!

German food and Beer to boot

I just had the Hungarian Goulosh and it was quite acceptable, I plan on going back next week to get one of the other 8 dishes that I sat drinking my stein of beer pondering what to order.

Now I just got to get a group of folks together for their Polka night.. Time to search for some Lederhosen!

Enjoyed a Great Lunch with my Dad.

Back in May, my Dad came out for a visit, and we dined at Schroeder's after shopping at Embarcadero. I had the Hungarian Goulash with Spatzle, he had the German Meatloaf. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and the space is beautiful. Murals adorn the walls, the bar and sideboards are a beautiful wood and brass, and the restaurant is lit with glowing antique German light fixtures. The place reminded us both of the types of restaurants my grandfather and great grandfather too...view morek us to in Chicago. A must try!view less

Romantic and Lively with Affable Hosts and Servers

I love the big burly gentleman host with the ready smile and kindly ways. I'm just a fool for a handlebar moustache! I've lived in the City for 12 years and somehow had missed this place--I feel like Indiana Jones discovering a lost treasure! During a recent visit my friend ordered Kassler Rippchen and I'm not ashamed to say I couldn't keep my fork off of his plate! If you like to eat and you like to make merry, this is a terrific place to enjoy hearty fare and learn how to polka.

Tourist rip-off

We came to invite my parents in law from Europe because they love german food. The owner asked us where we are from to determine our tourist status. After we paid the waitress came back complaining that we didn't give her enough tip, showing us bills from other guests and even bringing a calculator. Although I'm german, but living in the States, I'm familiar with the tip procedure and know that this was not only completely rude but not legal either. It put me in an embarrasing situatio...view moren and we left the restaurant with an awkward feeling. Other than that the food is very americanised. I won't recommand the restaurant to my friends.view less

My experience was quite different

I went to Schroeder's on a Friday night at about 7pm and I could barely squeeze in. There must have been over 200 people dancing to a band that featured a great female accordion player. Everyone seemed to be having a great time and the people that were having dinner were chowing down with gusto. Yes, it's not Chez Panisse but DUH! I love the Goulash.
And on some occasions they feature Pinkelwurst!

Best order meat!

I made the mistake of ordering the ""hot vegetarian platter"" here and it was an insulting mess. The place is enormous and fun, and the waitstaff friendly. I think meat is thing here, not vegetables.

You Want German Food?

This is the place for German food. My daughter lives in Germany and on her last visit home she brought her German/Russian boyfriend. He was impressed by the service, atomsphere, and most of all the food! I have visisted Germany and I must say Shrodeder's is as close as you can get in San Francisco to being in a German eatry. The beer is wonderful, too.
