A word from JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery - Tustin
JT Schmid’s was established in 1997 on a simple premise – to offer a splendid variety of the finest California cuisine and microbrews under one roof. We also wanted to create an atmosphere that was warm & inviting, thus our dedication to craftsmanship is reflected in our comfortable yet lively surroundings. And, because we take pride in our brewing process and delicious food, we have displayed our brewery and kitchen so that you might enjoy watching our Chef and Brew master as they carefully work their magic. It is our sincere hope that our commitment to quality will make us your favorite brewery and premier eatery in Orange County. California Cuisine best describes our diverse menu. We offer cuisine from all corners of the world. The centerpiece of our kitchen is a wood-burning brick oven which generates gourmet pizza and other of the Chef’s creations. Other specialties include Seared Ahi, Sweet Potato Fries, Jambalaya, and Steaks & Seafood.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Had the goat cheese burger and the farmhouse burger. Both were ordered medium rare but came out medium well. We didn't say anything since we were hungry. The goat cheese burger was very dry . There didn't appear to be any attempt to melt the cheeses. You pick up the burger and the cheese falls off. The farmhouse burger was much better. The tater tots must be cheaper to serve since you get more than necessary while the onion rings are limited to about five. They were both good."

  • "Had the Mexican burger and the buffalo burger. Both were excellent. The blue cheese dressing on the salad had chunks of blue cheese in it. That isn't that common anymore as places try to cut costs."

  • "There were several cigar smokers sitting on the patio and the smoke inhalation was unbearable. Almost impossible to eat or taste what you are eating with all the smoke. Too noisy to sit inside and would be impossible to have a decent conversation. The food was reasonably good if the air had been clean."

  • "There was no brunch menu for Fathers day. I thought that this restaurant had bottomless beers for fathers, but it did not. There was nothing special for Fathers day which surprised me because I was looking for a restaurant just for that purpose. We were seated inside by a door to the patio that kept whistling and blowing in cool air, and this was at 12:30 in the afternoon. The initial service was slow to contact our table. We watched another table be seated after us and their order taken before ours. It was nice but not special that I wanted for Fathers Day."

  • "I had a mozzarella salad and the beef tacos off the appy menu section and and my firend had the steak salad off the entree salad section. my food was ok and his looked only slightly better. it would be better if the mozzarella was not so dry. my tacos were not worth it. BUT on the REALLY positive side, I had 2 top shelf Long Island Iced teas and they were amazing though so kudos to bartender."

  • "Came to JT's a few weeks ago for a girls night out and had a wonderful time. Food was amazing and service was the best! Decided to take my husband and another couple out and this time was really disappointing. Had to ask for refills on everything. The music in the dining room was so loud, we had to shout to hear one another. The food was just ok. My hamburger bun was dry and the fries were cold. The soda didn't have syrup in in them first time around and the server never even noticed. Will go back, but ask for a different dining room and server."

  • "Saturday evening before Easter, 6:00 p.m. Very few people there, got seated immediately and greeted promptly by Bailey, our server. Had a couple of the IPA's...nice, not too bitter. Wife had the baby back ribs with sweet potato fries and creamed spinach. I had the blackened shrimp tacos with mango salsa. Both were served quickly, presented nicely, and tasted great. No dessert. Very reasonably priced, friendly service."

  • "I am in love with the JT Buffalo Wings. There is something about them that is incredibly addictive. Their beers are also amazing. I prefer anything they make over one of the chain brands like bud or coors. Now the negative and the reason for only 3 stars. In addition to the wings and beer we got BBQ chicken breast. The Chicken in the entree was nothing like the white mean goodness in the boneless buffalo wings. Instead it was a pounded thin, flat, piece of over processed rubber chicken. It was awful. The BBQ sauce was watery, and not so great. I tried salvaging it by dipping the rubber chicken into the buffalo sauce I love so much, no luck. So, for this place I'd stick to their favorites. Boneless buffalo wings are a must."

  • "We live right down the street and the last 2 times we have been here, the service has been so great that I needed to post about it! We had the same server both times, John B. He was a tall, dark hair guy with glasses. Anyways, we have a toddler and as any parent knows, it's hard to go out to enjoy dinner with a toddler. Lol. But everytime we come here, we actually can have a nice dinner and our toddler is entertained the whole time. John B. gives great service, our drinks are never empty and he actually takes the time to pay attention to our kid! She loves him! We definitely will be coming back on a weekly basis now, and will try to request him everytime!"

  • "We ordered the ahi tuna poke and Hawaiian coconut shrimp, 4 martini's, blue cheese prime sirloin, and thai salad with seared ahi. The tuna was just ok. No flavor and the color was not as vibrant as it should have been. The Hawaiian coconut shrimp was good and that helped save the disappointment in the ahi tuna poke. My husband ordered the blue cheese sirloin "medium" but received it rare. It was disgusting to our taste. We sent it back and proceeded to wait another 12 minutes before it came back out again and by that time we lost our appetite. Waste of food and money. My thai salad was very bland that after 3 bites I was done. I couldn't taste the sear on the ahi and the salad had no taste. Won't be back again unless for drinks only"

  • "When your forced to pay and 18% tip you expect good service. We thought we would go to dinner and a movie on New Year's Eve. The table next to us arrived after us got their food before we did. The desert came before our food. The dinner was served in bits, you got a sandwich and later came the fries. I've never had fish and chips served with thousand island dressing. By the time tarter did come our food was cold. We will not recommend this place to anyone. Our server seemed to try to correct everyone else's mistakes, but the overall experience was not a group effort. It took so long we missed our movie"
