Looking for local flavor? You've found it

I love this place for the food, the atmosphere and the general feeling you get when you walk in the door. It's located in very small, old house - so quarters are tight. When you walk in, you'll see the bar to your right, complete with a very old cash register, brass rails (for your elbows and feet) and a polished wood bar that's seen thousands and thousands of patrons. Their male employees are wearing shirt and tie under butcher jackets (those white jackets that tie) and their female employees are dressed in white tops/skirts/shoes - kinda reminds me of a nurses outfit. They have one person up front carving (a huge) roast beef continually - in fact he finished one off and started another while we were dining. The beef was just like I like it - rare (they ask what temp you'd like it). I had the Beef on Weck with a side of slaw and german potato salad ($10). I'd HIGHLY recommend the potato salad. We got a couple of appetizers (fried cheese and aged cheddar plate) - they were 'eh' at best. I would skip these and save room for ice cream at Antoinette's on the Hill just a few blocks away. I think this place is a must when visiting Buffalo.

Still great after all these years

My family has been going to Schwabl's forever and we love it. There's no better beef, and they make THE BEST german potato salad. Go there as soon as you can!

Wow! The Best food, great atmosphere, impecable service. Never have I seen any place serve beef rare the way I like it, like Schwabls'. The horseradish is always fresh. I love their homemade mashed potatos and gravy!
