Located in the German Village area of Columbus, OH, you'll find Schmidt's. During my visit to Columbus, at least four people recommended it when I asked where I should while in town. The main dining room is cozy, well lit (not bright, and just dim enough to add to the coziness). But, the main attraction is the food. They do... More

I don't mean it was full of dudes (it was crowded, though), but the buffet featured a nice selection of sausages that got me back for more after a full plate. Tasty food, great service, good beer.

Fabulous authentic German fare in a wonderful atmosphere. The bakery is a treat for the senses on its own and the Sausages are truly fantastic. Staff are welcoming and accommodating and the neighborhood around it truly makes you feel like your in a section of Germany, not Ohio. A destination onto itself. If you have a group make sure to...

If you want the cozy comfort of the German culture and a beer...this is a must place to eat, drink and experience! Once you taste the Bahama Mama & Kraut you will never want anyone else's sausage!

This is a must stop place while in Columbus. They have authentic German cuisine, and ambiance. You will think you are back in Germany for a while. The food is great and they have everything you can think of for German items. The cream puffs are huge and amazing for dessert so save room!

Stopped in at one of my favorite places over the Thanksgiving weekend for some Saurbraten with red cabbage and hot potato salad. The red cabbage is just the way I remember it growing up - with apple slices. Washed it down with a local dunkle beer. But the best part was dessert - a creme puff as big as your... More

Yes, this restaurant serves a lot of tourists, but the food's still good (and good value) and the staff obviously enjoy working here. If you like old-style German food (sausages, sauerbraten, and the like, served with authentic sides), come try it out.
