Bad waitress attitude and ok food

I had the same experience as a previous reviewer. I met a group of friends at Zum Schneider around Oktoberfest thinking it would be fun. Granted, it was super crowded but still the waitress was ridiculously rude. I've worked as a waitress and tend to have complete sympathy for them considering all the stuff they have to deal with (kitchen staff being slow etc) but this was the first time that I was ready to call the manager over. The food was ok but SUPER overpriced (ok, granted it was Oktoberfest) but the waitress was unabashedly rude. Surprise, surprise the tip was included in the bill. Frankly, I think Heidelberg on the upper east side was WAY better atmosphere, better food, better pricing and the waitresses treat you like human beings.

Good beer, rudest waitress in NY.

Came for a friend's birthday with a party of 6 and sat at a table. Waitress with glasses gave us a difficult time because we weren't buying meals. She kicked 3 people off the table next to us because they were only drinking, and not eating. We bought finger food and beers that came out to a $200 tab. She gave us a dirty look and was absolutely rude to us the whole time. She ended up adding gratuity to our check of course given her lousy attitude. I have no idea how this lady is employed as a waitress at a bar in NYC. On the plus side, the beer was good as you would expect from German beer but never coming here ever again. If you want a good beer garden experience, I'd recommend Astoria.

Great place to grab a drink with friends!

I had a group of friends in town for a big football match and we made our way over here sometime in the afternoon (1 or 2). We got a seated on the sidewalk, which was great for relaxing and doing some people watching. The service was great (especially for dealing with eight guys who'd been drinking since 7am) and the beer selection was not the standard you see at most bars. It was nice to try some different brews and get to drink them in proper glasses. I'll be going back for sure.
