I went to OSU and stayed 18 years in Columbus. I've visited Schmidt's many times with friends and family. Now, that I've moved to FL, this is one restaurant we always keep on the list to visit when pass through Columbus. This place is always busy. I'm amazed how fast tables can be turned over for the next patrons to... More
