“JT Schmid's is the Place for Tasty Food and Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Located right across the street from the Honda Center, home to the Anaheim Ducks, JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery is a nice place to eat, drink, watch sports, and more. A full service restaurant and bar, JT Schmid’s has all the food and drink you need and plenty of sports action to keep you and yours entertained for hours.

JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery is a fully- functional brewpub, which means it brews its own beer on site for sale to customers. Like with any brewpub, the beer options are many and I recommend asking for a sampler of the homemade beer. This is a good way to discover the different flavors/styles and decide which one you like best before committing to a full pint. The beers are very nice and they range from a light beer to an extra stout with several styles in between. I liked them all, but I was partial to the stout and the IPA. Each person will have his/her own preference which is why I strongly recommend a sample of each to help you decide.

JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery is known for its beer, but this establishment is every bit as much a restaurant as a brewery. Appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, pizza, seafood, and other menu options present a wide array of choices. The emphasis is on American style food but there are more options here than what are usually found in a pub. Like I said, JT Schmid’s is a restaurant just as much- or more- than it is a brewpub. Take away the brewing tanks behind the wall and you would still have a nice size, full service restaurant so even if you’re not partial to beer, this is a good place to visit for the food alone.

Menu offerings at JT Schmid’s Restaurant and Brewery are quite tasty and the service is top- notch. It can get busy when the Anaheim Ducks are playing across the way and it can get rather loud when the crowds are heavy, but regardless of the season, I recommend paying a visit to this Anaheim establishment. The food, the beer, the atmosphere, the sports, and other positive qualities make JT Schmid’s a place worthy of your time.

“Good menu options, quick service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Value for money here with plenty of menu choice and good service. We liked the location, the outside and indoor seating options, and the food was tasty, plentiful, and all American, which we enjoyed early in our visit.

“Sports Fan Place to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

This is a nice place for sport fans as it is across the street from the Honda Center/Anaheim Pond.

I went here with a friend before the LA KISS Arena Football League game.

The atmosphere was lively and the food was tasty. It may be slightly pricey but the atmosphere is what you are really paying for.

Nice gathering place for the sport enthusiast as they had numerous TVs on showing games happening at that point in time.

“Very Nice Business Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Met recently at JT Schmid's for lunch and a very nice meal. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was not too noisy so that a casual conversation could be had. Had the grilled salmon salad, which was excellent. Will be back.

“One of our favorite local spots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Good food and a good selection of house brews. A little pricey.
On game nights the menu is limited and the crowds can be big so you might think twice when the Ducks or Angels are in town unless you have tickets. Proximity to Honda Center and the stadium is great, but they charge for game night parking
