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.
For its 31st year, the Taste of Southern Indiana titillates tongues with sample menus from more than 15 local restaurants, caterers, and bakeries, while benefiting various local law-enforcement, substance-abuse-prevention, and addiction-treatment providers in Vanderburgh County. Peruse saliva-inducing selections from vendors including Just Rennie's Catering, Old Mill, Touch of Home Catering, Michelle’s Icing on the Cake, Wolf's Bar-B-Q, and more. Samples from The Pie Pan and The Cake Place will help prove the Dessert Fairy actually exists outside of children's dreams and dieters' nightmares. Southwestern Healthcare, Brentwood Meadows, Old National Bank, and News4U will co-sponsor this event.
Inside Honey Baked Ham, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop.
To go with the meats, the kitchen whips up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.
In an effort to find a healthy alternative to fast food without sacrificing speediness, the creators of Pita Pit began assembling their signature sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night snacks. At each location, thin, Lebanese-style pitas encircle lean, grilled meats and fresh veggies, all grilled to order. Sandwich selections span the spectrum from gyro meat and falafel to turkey and prime rib. The staff empowers customers to make healthy choices by displaying nutrition information for each bread, meat, and post-meal toothpick and corralling a selection of healthy sandwiches.
