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.
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.
