I wasn't impressed with the service, nither the food. They do have a wide range of beers to pick from though. This is a good resturant (beer hall) for a drink. But the food isn't worth the wait. There is about a 45 minute wait for food. I personally like to eat and go.

Since almost 1 year I go there maybe once a month and I have to say - the place changed. Especially the food. In the beginning the place felt comfortable and relaxing (especially in the beginning of the week). And the food was ok. Since a couple of month I have to say - the place is still wonderful after work to chat and relax, and the best: The food is amazing. The pork shank, the potato pancakes, the kasespazle, WONDERFUL. And as usual, the beer is sooo german. I will definitly always have time to have a nice meal there and talk to the nice staff. Definitely something different and something to always come back!

I have yet to find a restaurant or bar with better beer. It's mostly german beer of course, but if you really like beer that's what you order anyway. I'm so sick and tired of going out to places with great food and having to order water or wine because the only beers they have are coors, bud, heineken, corona., etc. My favorites are paulaner hefeweizen and schneider aventinus, but most any beers from them or spaten are excellent. Some of the food ain't great, but you won't be disappointed by the brezn, weisswurst, bratwurst in der semmel, kaesespaetzle, or sausageplatter. - all at very reasonable prices. My favorite is the gebackner camembert appetizer - baked camembert with lingonberries, side salad and bread basket. ($9, but plenty for two and absolutely delicious). The crowds can get a bit rowdy, but you can always sit outside or show up early, around 6pm. if you mind. The dining area is cozy, with not much room to maneuver, but it makes holding a conversation easy. The tables and benches (if you eat inside) are a nice wood that makes you feel a little bavarian.

Best selection of german beer in new york city, excellent food, service is good, but it get awfully crowded Thur - Sat nights, extremely...so go Sun - Wed to get a seat easily.. Get the pretzels with mustard, very good. Take the price of 1 Liter down a bit also, please. Cool Decor a plus.

My friend told me about this place and I'm glad he did. This place is AMAZING! I love the trees inside and the food is excellent. I loved the potato pancakes, the wurstsalad and the grilled half organic chicken! absolutely amazing. And the beer is the best in town! It is such a great place and the atmosphere is casual. The staff are really friendly and answered all my questions regarding the menu and they know their beer. I recommend Zum Schneider highly and will be back soon.

Authentic food, decor, and atmosphere. Great for larger groups if you get there early. I'd definitely recommend it - especially if you like good beer!

No doubt that the list and quality of beers is first rate. The atmosphere is also authentic, but the frat boy feel takes away from the experience of being in the East Village (my home neighborhood). The food is quite good, but can be hit or miss. The waitresses are all usually very nice, but typical of German service, not always very attentive. I think it's best at off hours when you can sit at a comfortable table in relative calm and enjoy a great cold beer and some good free pretzels.
