I visited Schmidts with my fiancé and another couple that had previously visited. Upon driving up to the location I was skeptical because I had never really heard of anything on the menu. We ordered the buffet and it was amazing! The food was so fresh and authentic. We couldn't leave without sharing one of their famous cream puffs. By... More

I LOVE Schmidts German Potato salad, it is a must every time I go! I had the lunch buffet which had so many different sausages which was a plus because I could try them all. I love the Bahama Mama and the Garlic Sausage. They are my favs. I ended my meal with the homemade Coconut Pie. Everything was AMAZING!... More

Great place to pick up items to make any BBQ easy and delicious . The chocolate pie is the best for dessert. Love supporting business in my neighborhood.

I love German food and I always enjoy the wurst and beer at Schmidt's. Located in German Village, this has been an iconic eatery for decades.

This place has such good food. The Homemade chicken soup was filled with large pieces of white meat and lots of noodles. The potato soup was really good, too. The case full of desserts looked incredible. I settled on the German Chocolate Cake--totally delicious!!

Housed in the beautiful brick paved roads in German Village, this is the place to be for a great meal! My favorite is always their jager schnitzel (pork steak, sauteed & a mushroom gravy on top) with spatzels (pasta noodles with a cream sauce) & red cabbage. Delicious!! If you prefer sausages, no problem. They have every flavor you could... More

It had been awhile since I dined at this location, but after visiting for lunch last week, I don't know why I waited so long. Had, and recommend, their lunch (or dinner) buffet - you get a chance to try a lot of what they have to offer bratwurst, Bahamas momma, and my favorite - German potato salad. They also... More
