Open Monday-Tuesday: 12PM - 1AM; Wednesday: 12PM- 2PM; Thursday: 12PM - 3PM; Friday - Saturday: 12PM- 4AM; Sunday:12PM - 1:00AM

Inspired by traditions of the Rhineland and Cologne, Loreley Restaurant and Biergarten brings us delicious German foods, beer, and Gemütlichkeit, which translates into coziness. Loreley strives to be a fun loving atmosphere for a young crowd while still grasping tight to their old school German roots. Their long wooden benches allow one to socialize with neighbors, sharing laughs, good vibes, and plates of schnitzel fingers, "Bratwurst mit Sauerkraut und Kartoffelpuree," and "Currywurst mit Pommes Frites."

This Bavarian Biergarten is all about celebrating life. Zum Schneider is always a fun time whether they are celebrating their annual festivals, monthly events such as Karneval (a cabaret with live performances), Oktoberfest, or sports viewings. The bar also has their own soccer league that frequent customers join and/or support. Zum Schneider loves to bring in the community in for a great time and has even imported 100 year old communal chairs all the way from Munich in hopes of good energy and for guests to engage each other.
