If you like German cooking, this is the place. I get the Buffet so that I can enjoy a little of everything. It is truly one of my go to places when I'm in Columbus and have time for a great meal. If in town, this is one place you do not want to miss.

We're in Columbus about twice a year and always stop here. Yes, the sausage is excellent but we come for the other traditional German fare such as sauerbraten, schnitzel, beans and spaetzle, and, most importantly, the beer. they have a decent variety of German beers and some local ones as well. But, if you're really into sausage and are really... More

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
