Bahama Mama is the best! German Knockwurst & Bratwurst are also very good. If you want something sweet their cream puffs are excellent and huge. Saurbraten & Weiner Schnitzel are also very good. Also, their Schmidt's draft beer in a frosty mug adds to the experience!

The food is good. The atmosphere can get a little crowded and there may be a wait. But overall, I really enjoyed it!

The place has a jovial atmosphere and the food is delicious. My favorite is the knockwurst sausage. Their mustard and kraut is wonderful.

The food is great! The Bahama Mama sausage is a must, as well as a cream puff for desert. I live right around the corner and see people constantly flocking to Schmidt's. I always bring my family when they are in town, they absolutely love it, and appreciate the accordion play on Friday and Saturday nights. It never disappoints!

Overall OK at best. Honestly, it's a Cbus institution, so I'll round up. The Bahamas Mamma brat was OK, the rest of the food is.......basic at best. If you are looking for local options and high quality or "fancy" food isn't the goal, I would try Thurman's First.

Cozy, relaxed, great desserts. Fan of the Bahama Mama, but also love the turkey reuben. Cream puffs original and specialty flavors are delightful, but so is the cherry torte. We regularly bring our German exchange students and never leave disappointed.

Schmidt's has the best German Food and the Cream Puffs are to die for. All the sausages are made there daily. They have a great buffet @ lunch time too. German Potato salad is the best.
