Description: This iconic German Village restaurant is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends. For five generations we have been serving authentic German food. Our sausage has become so famous that the Bahama Mama has been voted the official food of Columbus and the building is registered as a historic landmark. Come take a trip around our Autobahn Buffet or, if you want something other than sausage, try one of our traditional German dinners. Of course, for dessert, you can have one of our half-pound jumbo cream puffs. Stop in today and celebrate with us!

“Many Memorable Nights Here”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I really really like Schmidt's. It's a great place to go after a football game, even though you'll wait to sit down, it's a party atmosphere. The buffet is the way to go. Really, I have some great memories with family and friends here, but the food lives up to the memories each time I go back.

“A touch of Germany just a few blocks from downtown Columbus!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Great food, fun atmosphere, good service! LOVE the cabbage rolls! The green beans and spaetzle were also exceptionally good. There's more here then just sausage and kraut (although those are great selections too)! Good choice for young and old!

“Sausage King of Columbus”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

And don't forget the cream puffs, another house specialty. Be prepared for a wait - this is a popular Columbus landmark.This gem is tucked in the charming German Village section of Columbus so you can stroll around the cobblestone streets and check out the boutiques,brick cottages, and lovely gardens.

“Sausage Heaven!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

If you like German sausage this is the place for you!! $14 for all you can eat sausage. There were 6 different types on the buffet along with 2 kinds of sauerkraut, 2 kinds of potatoes, mac-n-cheese, and rolls. They also have a large traditional German menu, tons of great beer, and the greatest cream puffs in human history. The Buckeyes are awesome!!

We even got to meet Arnold when he was in town for the Arnold sports Fest. I know we'll be back same time next year!!

“Try the Lunch Buffet for best selection”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This place has great sausages - try the lunch buffet so that you get a wider selection - don't forget a cream puff - they are famous for them - they are honestly too lard filled for my taste (I like a lighter pastry) but you just might disagree with me (millions of people do)
