This was one of our first places to eat while we stayed in Columbus. We went during the fall and walked around German Village after we ate. Price was very reasonable and plan on taking my in-laws from Germany there this fall.

Good food and atmosphere. Nice area and well kept building. Our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner was here upstairs. The only issue would be if you have elderly people in your family who need assistance, the steps going upstairs are not accessible.

I drove from Indianapolis to have dinner with my Dad before an important surgery tomorrow am. We were a party of five late afternoon today when the restaurant was not busy. Our waiter was not rude, but clearly was uninterested in any amicable conversation. He was annoyed at our attempts to clarify his directions. Everything was placed at the edge... More

Ended up here quite by accident. Our first choice was not open until 5, so after checking TripAdvisor, chose Schmidt's. When we arrived, down a long brick road, lined with quaint older homes in a very nice part of town, we were greeted by a mass of folks waiting to get in. So, we found a spot to park, and... More

The food here is excellent. There is a buffet that is most reasonable during the week, and expands on the weekend. They have a variety of sausages such as the famous Bahama Mama and side dishes, including German potato salad and braised red cabbage. You can order soups, dinners, platters and sandwiches from the menu also. The service is usually... More

Returned to Columbus & Schmidt's after a 20 year absence. Walked the Oval, ate at Schmidt's. Ohio State has changed. Schmidt's is exactly the same (and I'm ok with that). If you are visiting town, Schmidt's serves classic Bavarian food. Almost every American calls this German food, which I guess is kinda true, but not every German eats this. ANYway,... More

A clear favorite to take friends or just pass by to pick up some sausage and a growler of beer for the barbecue. The food is good German fare so you will leave full, and the atmosphere is very nice, very genuine, family friendly.

Soon after its grand-opening, my fiancé and I tried to go to Hofbrauhaus in Grandview Yard. It was so packed that we couldn't get a table. So we decided to go to Schmitz instead. As always, the food was great and so as the service! We are never disappointed when we go.
