Gotta stop and have the sausage

It's a must to stop and enjoy house made sausage and save room for the cream puff! Trust me it's a true delight. Good selection of great sausage and brats

We were drawn to this restaurant in a whim because it appeared in Man versus Food in the Food Network. But make no mistake, the food is outstanding and easily lives up to the hype. We both selected the buffet which included 6 selections of sausage, hit German potato salad,other veggies, and a fresh and well appointed salad bar. One... More

This German Village, family run institution sustains high quality food and service after more than a century. The Bahama Mama spicy sausage is the "go-to" item on the menu but there are other styles and items as well. I had the sampler platter with 4 different sausage segments with sauerkraut, red cabbage and German potato. The deserts are famous especially... More

If you want genuine German cuisine, this is the place. We have been coming to this place since we were in college, and that's been a long time ago. I am most happy to report that the food is still of top-notch quality, and the service efficient and friendly as usual. We started with an appetizer, Schmidt's Famous Pretzel Nuggets,... More

Staff was great about substituting items and making suggestions for dietary restrictions, which we very much appreciated. Large portions for a low price at lunchtime for entrees. Bathroom was not kept up well (visited at 2pm on a Monday, so it wasn't like they were overrun with customers.) Loved the pretzel rolls for sandwiches.

We sought this restaurant out due to its rating and the fact we have no good German food options were we live. So glad we did. Loved the neighborhood feel and decor of the facility. Our server was friendly and helpful. And most importantly, the food was excellent. We both did the buffet and enjoyed the quality and variety. Hope... More

We went there for lunch a couple of weeks ago while on a visit to Columbus. It was a Friday and we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, but it was worth it. Very yummy sausage and friendly staff in a really nice cozy part of German Village. The menu includes plates (the size of large entrees)... More

We shared this experience with guests from North Carolina and all enjoyed not only the food but the atmosphere and fantastic service. Three out of the four chose the buffet; the fourth had wiener schnitzel. The variety of the buffet definitely makes it worthwhile, but, the discounted dessert makes it a real meal deal. We all took our desserts to... More

I traveled to Columbus, OH regularly for over a decade without visiting Schmidt's because I thought parking would be a hassle. What a mistake because street parking is readily available and the German Village district has incredible old-world charm so having to walk a block through one of the neighborhood streets is a pleasant part of the experience. I've now... More
