Had not been there for years, but when visiting friends in the area last week we had to stop by. We were there in late pm so the crowd was no problem. Wife had the buffet which she said was great. I usually eat too much when I choose the buffet so I just got the Garlic Knockwurst sandwich with... More

I grew up in Columbus but live in Houston now. I can get some great German food down here but Schmidt's is hard to beat. They really know what they are doing. Their food is just down right delicious! I miss being able to go more often.

This place has sausages galore and you can even partake in the sausage buffet for a very reasonable price. The cream puffs here are legendary and i mean world renowned. They are 1/2 lb and worth sharing with someone you love.

Service is excellent, servers are very courteous. Food is delicious & jumbo cream puffs are best I've ever had. I had the award winning " Bahamas Mamas Sausage " and German potato salad. Excellent and priced to suit anyone's wallet. Surrounding German Village takes you back in time with brick streets and beautiful old homes. People are so friendly and... More

I had the unusually named "Bahamas Mama" sausage sandwich and the amour and type of spices used in it were amazing. I ordered the potato pancakes with it and those too were excellent. We went on a Sat. Afternoon and the wait was only 10 mins. The atmosphere was fun too- very authentic

While the wait was a bit long, I would do it again and again! The food was excellent, the service was fantastic, and OMG the cream puffs! If you are full from dinner, get a cream puff to go. You do not want to miss out. We waited about 30 minutes for a table for 2, but many other parties... More

The food tasted amazing. However, the wait was almost an hour. So, if you don't like waiting don't go. The sausage house is also very noisy and there is no where to sit and wait. You have to stand in a crowded little room. The servers are all dressed the part for a german feel. The food is not too... More

In town for business and this restaurant was a must. Not only does it have charm, the food is delicious. As previous folks say, save room for the cream puff !!!
