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

Non-pretentious place serving good quality food with excellent, speedy service. My king cut prime rib was cooked precisely at medium rare, and my wife's beer battered cod was to die for! To top it all off the waiter came by at the end with a basket of packed treats for my children. Truly a great place with children!

We were on a hunt for a.great dinner. We went into downtown and was turned away from a well known place. Apparently they said it was graduation night so there was no way we would find a place available downtown. Well..we decided to try Schmidty's and what a pleasant surprise. We both had prime rib with Bacon wrapped shrimp along... More

We discovered Schmitty’s by accident and have gone back several times in the past few months. Schmitty’s has obviously been in business for decades, kind of a local “institution”, which means the food and service keeps bringing people back. Schmitty's is an old style supper club that you find in this area of Wisconsin. Nothing fancy, but they have good... More

Schmidty's used to be the local favorite that you could count on for a quality no-frills meal at a great price. Now, the focus on supper club wanna-be atmosphere has detracted from the quality of the food. The Friday night specials were greasy, cold and bland. The price is easily DOUBLE what it should be given the quality of the... More
