I really wanted to be wowed by Schilo's, but that was not to be. The food was just average...nothing special. However, our server was great on every front. Unfortunately, I probably wouldn't go again when in SA regardless of the outstanding service.

The best pea soup in town. The Reuben and Chicken and Dumplings are also very good. Building is old and filled with character. Root beer served overflowing in a frosted mug is great!

We have been wanting to try this place for years, but it stays crowded with a long waiting line, or we’ve missed it because it isn’t open all day. We finally had a chance on Memorial Day. Yes, it was crowded around 11:00 a m,...More

We had a very enjoyable lunch here on Memorial Day. The food was excellent and the restaurant itself was very unique and interesting. The service was good although slowed down at the end of the meal (it was very busy). The chicken and dumplings, green...More

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
