Great fish dinner

We went there for fish on a Friday night. It was very busy. We had to wait a bit for our reservation but our order was taken very quickly and then we went to the salad bar. The salad bar has a very good selection. The fish dinner was more than we could eat. Service was great.

We had reservations for 6PM. It was very busy/ The salad bar was awesome and fresh. It is a locally owned restaurant/bar. The waitress was very attentive. The seafood platter special for that evening was superb!

We grew up going to this place because all our aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents lived within blocks. Fun to go back - still owned by the same family. It's a nice little neighborhood bar/restaurant. Food is decent, drinks are decent.

Schmidty's always has a family friendly atmosphere. We've never been disappointed by their food, including an always fresh salad bar.

The large dining room has very big windows that let in a lot of natural light! Waitstaff is pretty attentive and courteous. Salad bar was what I ordered..it was decent..but not the greatest. Overall a good choice if you are looking for a local place to eat! Cheese curds are outta this world!

I always enjoy my entree (my favorites are Prime Rib, Fish, Steak) and the salad bar is so good! Super Friday night fish also.

We visited Schmidty's on two different evenings; once for drinks, and the second for drinks and dinner. The bar is a very alive local hang-out and everyone seems to know almost everyone else there. Very friendly atmosphere. On our second visit we decided to have dinner, and in that regard it was very disappointing. I had a seafood platter which... More

The quality of food and wait staff is superb. No other dinner club offers the salad bar that they do.

I grew up going to this restaurant as a child. I went there last night with my mother hoping to enjoy the same great food and atmosphere. This restaurant used to be known for their great steaks. Ordered a steak told the waitress I wanted it medium to medium rare. The steak came out well done tasting of shoe leather.... More

Not sure why most everyone thinks the food here is above ave much less ave. The food here back in the day used to be great. as some others have recognized it has gone down hill. I think it's because they buy a lower quality of food than in years gone by. Breakfast is better but how can you make... More
