Welcoming Guests Since 1909!
This summer, instead of taking to the skies for our vacation time, we've decided to stick close to home and discover what's around us. Last weekend we took a drive to Marshall (Michigan). It's not all that far from us, and what a gem of a find we found there in the name of Schuler's restaurant! First and foremost, it has been open and serving patrons since 1909. You know when an establishment has been popular for over an entire century, that it's got to be worth trying.
Fun fact: after trying the restaurant, and raving about how wonderful it was to my in-laws, my Mother-in-Law told me it was where her and her husband of 53 years went on their prom date, many moons ago when they were still in high school.
|The entrance area is full of charm!|
No idea who is hiding under that pillow. ;)
|The many items for sale in the entryway take on a|
whole new level of interest once you've sampled the declicious items from the menu.
There are also items like home-baked goods (including cookies, yum!), jam, coffee, and Schuler's memorabilia for sale in the seating area. These items take on a whole new level of interest once you've tasted how delicious the selections are on the menu.
There are a good number of photographs along the many walls inside of the restaurant that showcase a sense of pride in its history. I thought the pictures lent such a wonderful touch to an already cozy environment.
|I love the sayings all along the tops of the walls,|
and the large pictures on display in the main dining area.
The ambiance everywhere you turn is very welcoming. Of course, what really matters in a restaurant is the service and the food, and in those areas Schuler's did not disappoint.
Our server was most excellent at her job, from the beginning of the meal until it was time to leave. She made us feel most welcome, including our little one who is a little shy with people he doesn't know. And the establishment is very large, so you don't feel rushed to finish your meal. You can sit back and enjoy, like you're supposed to be able to do when you're out and about.

My husband liked these so much he took what was left home and had them the next day (a rarity for him).
|Being the salad lover that I am, I was happy that their salad was so busy,|
busy meaning packed full of some of my most favorite veggies.
|Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli|
House-made basil sauce with roasted vegetables and Parmesan
Flank marinated in soy, ginger, and apple juice, button mushrooms
|He was loving that milkshake!|
|But I think he loved the build-your-own ice cream|
that came with the children's meal even more. ;)
|The Signature Pecan Ball is vanilla bean ice cream rolled in|
roasted sweet pecans and served with hot fudge.
We'll be returning to Schuler's, and I for one can't wait. What a gem of a find in our very own area to come across!! Oh yes it is going to be a fun summer of exploring new places that are close by (within comfortable driving distance) this summer.
