We've been around since 1971. The building was originally the Victory Theater that opened in 1942. Pizza has always been our mainstay, but we also specialize in a variety of appetizers, hoagies, sandwiches, and dinners. We also have a full service bar located in the original theater area.
Since opening its doors in 1961, Schnitzelbank has preserved the Bavarian traditions of hearty cuisine and bountiful beer as one of southern Indiana's only German restaurants. The extensive menu builds transatlantic bridges with a cornucopia of traditional German specialties, American favorites, and an enormous supply of suspension cables. Limber chomping muscles for a marathon meal with the full Wunderbar salad bar or the chef's special kraut balls, which marry seasoned ground beef and pork with sauerkraut and cream cheese under a veil of toasty breadcrumbs ($7.95). In the beef rouladen, bacon, green peppers, onions, and mushrooms snuggle together in a sirloin-tip sleeping bag, while Wednesday and Saturday evenings delight guests with a two-inch thick hickory smoked pork chop slathered with a signature barbecue sauce ($21.95). Schnitzelbank's lunch menu presents traditional southern German and American dishes between curtains of fresh bread for a savory midday aside or bratwurst-inspired soliloquy. Customers can also feast from the Lenten seafood buffet on Friday's through Easter Sunday, April 24.
Tables that can accommodate big groups and cozy, home-cooked meals evoke a sense of camaraderie inside Old School Cafe. Chicken noodle soup, reuben sandwiches, creamy mac and cheese, and biscuits galore populate tables. A giant burger stacked high with bacon, cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce is held together by a steak knife stabbed through its middle. The creative endeavors continue with desserts, including bear-shaped cookies and cupcakes topped with maple bacon or toasted marshmallows.
One step inside Old School Bakery and guests are treated to the smells of freshly baked cupcakes, iced donuts, brownies, and pecan pies. The menu of all things sweet and sugar includes custom cakes decorated with fondant flowers, colorful icing swirls, and the first 1,000 digits of pi.
The Christmas enthusiasts at Santa's Candy Castle entertain children and their parents with an interactive computer lab directly connected to the North Pole, an old-fashioned candy shop, and a holiday-themed exterior that resembles a gingerbread house. One access card (a $10 value) to the North Pole Network—a group of six computers directly connected to the North Pole and its inhabitants—grants children a straight communication shot to one of six elves. Computer tables and chairs lowered to the level of a grown man's kneecap support the candy-filled bodies of youngsters while they plunk away at colorful, oversized keys on durable keyboards made to withstand even the weightiest Christmas wish list. Once connected to the network, children ask an elf if they've made it onto Santa Claus's good list. All of the children, good or bad, receive a good list certificate emblazoned with an official gold seal, endorsements from the elf and Santa Claus, the child's name, and a discarded nose light bulb from a famous reindeer.
