Beef carpaccio to die for...light yet creamy soups to savor, perfectly spiced...Good German Beer on tap...good wine list...salmon with leeks...and of course heavier German fare.... Schnitzel, Spätzle, etc. Serving sizes can be a bit more than the progressive European décor might lead you to expect. Tastefully decorated interior with light jazz as background music makes for a pleasant ambiance. Small... More

We enjoyed roasted Brussel-sprout soup, a sausage & cheese salad, jäger schnitzel and a trio of great desserts. Food was very well prepared, clearly all freshly done and of excellent taste. We will be back.

If you like original German food - this is the perfect place. High quality and nice atmosphere. You can taste the difference of real homemade cuisines.

Excellent German Food. Definitely worth a visit. I have only eaten at a handful of German restaurants but this one is the best I have experienced by far. Truly Delicious

Not authentic. Food was overpriced. Decor was odd. Unterhause in Simpsonville is much better. Disappointed we wasted our time and money.

This is the most outstanding German restaurant I've visited in the United States! I will alter my travel plans just to fly into / out of Greenville, so that I can dine with them. The food is excellent and the wait staff outstanding. You cannot go wrong if you enjoy a meal at the Schwaben House!

We had our wedding at the Schwaben House Easter weekend. The owners Anette and Georgio are simply fantastic, they decorated the back deck in the most perfect way for the ceremony! They were absolutely amazing in every aspect. From helping plan a welcome drink for guests, to the appetizer selection (carpaccio - which was mouth melting and incredible beyond this... More

While in Greenville I suggested to my coworkers to try Schwaben House for lunch. Our lunches were great and we want to come back and try more great entrees.

We enjoyed our experience here but I found the food unexceptional, the prices high and the service uncomfortable. We got a lecture on good German food versus low brow German food.
