History FAQs

Is Schuler’s the same as  “Win Schuler’s”? 
After Win Schuler retired in 1982, his son Hans Schuler took over the operations of the restaurant, and the corporate name was changed to simply “Schuler’s.”  Many longtime guests still refer to it as Win Schuler’s, however.

What is the Signature Room?  The Signature Patio? 
The Signature Room itself is a unique space for a small to medium size event, seating approximately 50 persons comfortably, with an additional 15 or so seats now available on the patio.  Bring your guests past pictures of the four generations of the Schuler family (with their signatures, naturally), into the Dickens-themed Signature Room and outside to a beautiful new space that is also perfect for cocktail or grill events.

What awards has Schuler’s received? 
Over the years, Schuler’s has been awarded numerous awards and recognition, including:

  • Restaurant Business’ “Top 100 Award,” the first annual Ivy Award (an honor conveyed by colleagues and competitors in the food service industry),
  • Three-Diamond rating from AAA
  • 37 consecutive Travel Holiday Fine Dining Awards
  • Award of Dining Excellence from Distinguished Restaurants of North America
  • The restaurant is also a Michigan Centennial Business.
  • In 2012, Hans Schuler was named “Restaurateur of the Year” by the prestigious Independent Restaurateur Magazine.

Can you buy the cheese spread at the restaurant?
The name, recipe, and rights to the original “Bar Scheeze” that Win Schuler popularized was sold to Campbell’s Soups in 1982 (and can still be found in some regional supermarkets).  You can find Bar Scheeze online with Bogart Gifts. The restaurant created a new, healthier concoction called “Heritage Cheese Spread,” which is served today in the dining room and is available for carry-out at the restaurant (along with our house-baked crackers).

Is there a Schuler’s cookbook?
In anticipation of our 100th anniversary, a special cookbook “Schuler’s: Fresh Recipes and Warm Memories” was produced.  The cookbook combined recipes from the restaurant and from Hans Schuler’s son, Chef Jon Schuler, with anecdotes and history of the restaurant.  Although still available in some bookstores, the cookbook has sold out and is not currently in print.  The latest Pure Michigan cookbook is available for sale at the restaurant, and it contains a page and recipe from Schuler’s.

How did the “Famous Sayings” on the beams originate?
The Schuler philosophy has always been to make you, our guest, comfortable.  Figuring that guests like to talk about quotes and comments from celebrities, and drawing upon his love of history and literature, Win Schuler, a fan of English men of letters, came up with the idea of inscribing quotes on the wooden beams of the restaurant.  In some instances, instead of British history, contemporary sports figures became the source of the quotes.

When was the Centennial Room created? 
What started out as the livery stable for the old Royal Hotel is today the legendary Centennial Room in the Marshall restaurant.  In between, like the restaurant itself, the room underwent a transformation of function and appearance.  In the 1940s, a bowling alley had taken a front-and-center position on Eagle Street.  Ironically, a pinboy strike in 1946 led Win Schuler to conclude that the bowling alley was no longer a profitable venture, and he decided to replace the lanes with a dining room to meet the expanded customer demand.  Using lumber from the Northwoods and their own sawmill, Schuler’s worked around post-War building restrictions, and the Centennial Room took shape.  The new dining room featured murals of historic Marshall, hardwood beams, and, because of the configuration of the building, different floor levels.

What is the Signature Room?  The Signature Patio? 
The Signature Room itself is a unique space for a small to medium size event, seating approximately 50 persons comfortably, with an additional 15 or so seats now available on the patio.  Bring your guests past pictures of the four generations of the Schuler family (with their signatures, naturally), into the Dickens-themed Signature Room and outside to a beautiful new space that is also perfect for cocktail or grill events.

 

Recipes & Culinary FAQs

Are all of Schuler’s breads and crackers baked at the restaurant?
Schuler’s in-house bakery produces daily breads, crackers and other baked goods on the premises. Special order cakes, holiday baked goods, and desserts are also produced fresh in-house.

What is the weekly bread baking schedule? 
A bread schedule is available online and in the lobby of the restaurant.

What is Schuler’s Private Label wine (and who produces it)? 
Schuler’s Private Label wine is in its fourth vintage, with Cabernet and Chardonnay available here, as well as Schu’s (son Larry Schuler’s place in St. Joseph, MI) Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.  The wines are produced in conjunction with Windsor Winery from California.

How does Schuler’s prepare its Roast Prime Rib of Beef?  What is an “end cut”?
The Classic Roast Prime Rib of Beef, prepared in the English tradition, has been a staple of the Centennial Room’s menu for years, and Winston’s Pub features a Prime Rib sandwich on its menu, as well.  Prime Rib is a large roast that is difficult to prepare well, and most people don’t do it at home anymore. For its Prime Rib, Schuler’s selects the best possible meat.  Then we take care to age it properly, since aging provides natural tenderization.  We use special seasonings and slow-roast it in a specific type of oven to control the quality.  The “end cut” of the roast, which is popular with some guests, is available if the timing is right!
