Schmidt's is a family / tourist friendly locale. The sausages and oompa band lend to its charm. Food is good, not great and reasonably priced. Get a "cream puff". They are out of this world.

I always have a great meal at Schmidt's. I usually do the buffet so I can sample everything. Save room for the Cream Puff. It is absolutely the best part of the meal. It was a busy Sunday. We had about a half hour wait. We met a family from California on they way out & they said they had... More

We planned our summer road trip from South Mississippi to intentionally stay a couple of nights in Columbus so we could eat here! There is variety on the menu in all price ranges plus a $15 buffet. We get the Bahama Mama and bratwurst plates both of which are served with apple sauce, sauerkraut, and potato salad. Amazingly delicious! Then,... More

We wanted something from a local, non-chain restaurant, so we were recommended to try Schmidts in German Village. As a family of 5 (three kids ages 13, 11, and 6) that had been walking the city, we all opted for the lunch buffet except for the 6 year-old-it was the crustless grilled cheese and fries for him. Although, we don't... More

We were so thrilled to see this restaurant, had been wanting German food and no one near us! We were having a heck of a time deciding, and the waitress told us they had a buffet -decision made! Everything was perfect - ordered a pitcher of dark and we were in heaven. The apple dumpling was perfect to be shared... More

A group of us decided to try Schmidts while in Columbus. The palce was full, but after a short 15 min. wait, we enjoyed a great meal. Homemade pretzel bites, Weiner Schnitzel, followed by their famous cream puff. Perfect!

Well balanced menu, large portions, great service and fantastic desserts. Although I can't get past ordering the sauerbraten, my wife is working her way through the menu and everything has been excellent. The sauerbraten (very lean) has just the right amount of ginger in gravy, served over delicious spatzle with green beans, potato pancakes w/apple sauce and a dinner roll,... More

I've been craving German food for awhile and even though I travel a lot, I haven't been able to find any. What a treat to discover Schmidt's!!! I looked over the menu before I went and still couldn't decide. And then to my amazement....they were having a buffet, so i could try a lot of different things!!!! I adore the... More

My husband & I could not leave until we ate here since we have heard such great things about it. We started off with the pretzel bites & I tell you soft pretzels will never be the same. These were so good, I could have had them as a meal! My husband had sausage & I had the grilled chicken... More
