Howard Schede has been retiring from the restaurant scene and his daughter and son-in-law w own this location. There is some good and some poor to be had. The vegetable sirloin soup is rich and delicious. The French onion soup was salty and seemed to have a burnt flavor. The salad bar ($3.95 extra) is pretty good.
My pasta dish with meat balls and sausage was just right in spice but the sauce was an uninspired red paste. Overall not yummy Italian. The DW's pasty was covered in a dark gravy that seemed like a cross between canned gravy and Jiffy Lube. Portions are large, I took 1/2 of my pasta home and DW took her whole pasty home.
If it's a premium entrée you seek, go somewhere else. If you are content with average comfort food and a few tasty items then pull up a chair.

We went to Schelde's as a family. Great light in the front of the place under the skylight. The salad bar is small but packed with everything good. The soup was clam chowder and was excellent. Kids got portions large enough we had to take food home. Great all around experience. Thank-you!

We showed up a half hour before closing and asked if it was ok. We were assured it was fine they seat people right up till closing. Everyone in our group only ordered soup or an appetizer or dessert. We knew it was late and didn't want to order big meals. Evidently our server did not agree with the policy of seating customers till closing. He was very unhappy and unfriendly. The French Onion Soup was the worst I have ever had.

The food was great. The service was outstanding. The restaurant was very clean. Definitely will return. The music didn't fit the atmosphere.
