In mid-Sept.2014 went to Schmidt's on a weekday night (tried on an OSU football Saturday around 1 pm and it was a 45 min wait). Food and service were good but the noise level was not so good. I am glad to see that they remain so popular. Still, not my favorite destination but worth a sometimes visit.

I always like going to Schmidt's, service is usually great, but I try to avoid going when they are packed. They have a buffet called the autobaun which I sometimes get. If you aren't that hungry just order off the menu. There is usually a band playing in the evenings for that real German feel. Good placs nice atmosphere right... More

ok I have been to schmidts on numerous occasions, The sausage is awesome, as long as you're into that. The creampuffs are to die for, and roughly the size of your head. The music is awesome especially on a saturday night. You do want to be patient, as the lines are very long, but its totally worth it. Also the... More

All in all the food is mediocre. I do like the addition of the pork knuckle though. It's quite good albeit pricey.

If you're looking for an iconic German Village meal, German food, and are up for stuffing yourself to the gills, you'll love Schmidt's. Get the buffet -- it's cheaper than ordering ala carte -- and if you're coming to Schmidt's to EAT, you can do it non-stop at the buffet. Obviously, the sausages and brautwurst is great, cream puffs are... More

We checked menu little pricey. We than checked the buffet awe everything looked delish! We stopped at lunch one of the first customers. Right before noon it was busy~noticed they seem to sit families in one area which makes it nice. The staff dressed in old Italian clothing and the Restraunt had very home feeling.
