A word from JT Schmid's
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.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service at JT Schmid's is very good and it's a great restaurant to have lunch or dinner prior to going to any event at Honda Center since its right across the street from it."

  • "Our group had a better then expected experience at JT Schmid's. We were running late on our reservations, and to our pleasant surprise the Hostess honored our reservations by putting us on the priority waiting list and as soon as we arrived we were given a table at a great location. We were also worried about getting to our event at the Honda Center on time, but again we were very pleased that our waiter rapidly worked on our order and our food came quickly. We were able to enjoy our food and make it to our event on time! The food was fresh and delicious!"

  • "Mani fish tacos are always a favorite. We sat at the bar to get a better view of the basketball games on the TVs. Bartender was friendly and attentive. Manager stopped by to check on our satisfaction. Have always had a good experience at this restaurant."

  • "Great location across from Honda Center in Anaheim but very noisy, crowded and very SLOW service ( not fault of waiter but the kitchen was slow). We had 1 order of nachos and 1 pizza and 2 ice cream desserts and it took over 3 hrs to be served and fed. ( right before sporting event but shouldn't have been that slow for what we ordered) Typical food for brewery type restaurant."

  • "Loud party in room next to our table. Waitress wouldn't move us even though there were empty table--held for larger parties than ours. Food is not of highest quality. Good belly filler and that's it."

  • "We LOVE going here just before the game! LOTS of people so go early! Everyone so friendly--close to Honda Center--great food--great ambience--very loud and energetic!"

  • "Unfortunately we were placed at a tiny table by the kitchen enterance. When I asked for a booth I was told those were for reservations only...I was on a reservation. I was made to feel like I had done something unreasonable by asking for the booth. The food was good and the server did his job well. Unfortunately, the bar tender needs a refresher course. I ordered a Moscow mule. I was asked if that was made with a "bourbon mix." Really. Who doesn't know that a Moscow mule has ginger beer, vodka and a lime. This Moscow mule was a muddy color. I sent it back"

  • "We arrived early for our 5:30 p.m. reservations. The restaurant was not crowded at that time, so we were very disappointed that the hostess took us to the most remote area of the restaurant. There were at least 6 booths available in the main dining room. When we asked to be seated in booth we were told they were reserved. She did manage to move us to the main dining area, where we saw those booths sit empty for at least an hour. We did appreciate her moving us to the main dining room, but wondered why weren't we weren't seated there to begin with? Would only recommend this restaurant because of it's proximity to the Honda Center."

  • "Went here before a concert at Honda center. Menu much much smaller than I expected or remembered. Very dissapointing. Prices from low end for a small medium pizza was $14, as our server correctly described, to a high of $30 for steak at this place... Just isn't a $30 steak house... Got the raspberry mojito, which lacked any flavor despite being filled to the Brit with muddled raspberries. App was the order of tots.Which you really can't screw up. I got a modified cowboy burger... Best burger value at $13 since they otherwise start at $12 and to add cheese or bacon or practically anything else was priced a buck a piece. So I got my cowboy burger with goat cheese instead of blue cheese.It came with two giant onion rings and bacon."

  • "This is a great place if you are attending an event at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Good atmosphere, good service, food was better than most breweries I have been too. Bar area is the best for a quick bite and some drinks."

  • "We loved everything about JT Schmidt's! The food was great. I had the salmon salad and it was excellent. The salmon was prepared perfectly and the salad very fresh with many extras in it. My husband had the steak salad and it too was excellent. The steak was tender and a perfect medium rare. The chicken -avocado egg rolls were ridiculously good! The service was excellent. We were seated by the kitchen and it was fun to see the care each plate received before going out and the organized system for ensuring each plate is served as ordered."

  • "The filet mignon is delicious well seasoned and so very tender.. the seafood plates are also very good (I would know since i deliver their fish lol) they recieve fresh fish daily, I would definantly recomend the chilean seabass when available.. salmon is usually available daily and would def recomend that as well.. also they are one of the few restaurants who make their fries fresh from whole potatoes so if u enjoy fresh fries ud enjoy this place"

  • "I was completely satisfied with my service. I was seated on time, the service was wonderful. The menu had a wide variety to choose from and was very delicious."

  • "Had a reservation at 5PM but it took the 3 people behind the desk to deal with one person that held up the line for about 4 to 5 minutes--did not make sense to our party of four (why all 3 people)??? Food was good but service was fair at best---one person brought us drinks, another water, a third person silverware and napkins after we asked for it when appetizers arrived and still did not get it until I asked a table cleaner for set-ups. Seems that waitresses were covering too many tables--too little attention including trying to find one fo the three to get us a bill. Again, service was poor to fair"

  • "I always come to JTs for a pre game meal and beverage. Service and food do not disappoint. And the big screens with other hockey games showing get you in the zone quickly. Plan on needing a reservation if the game is a sell-out or get there early!"

  • "Very busy,service a little slow but not surprising because the place was rammed. There was a Bass Guitarist function happening. Food good, acceptable price, great beer!!"

  • "We were in town from St. Louis for work and decided to get tickets to the Ducks game. Great place to go before the game for a bite to eat and a few drink. You can valet to eat and for the game for $20. I had 3 of their house brews and they were all great. Good food selection as well."

  • "Made reservation for 90 minutes before Duck/Bruins game, place was packed but still was immediately seated. Waitress was there right away for drink and app order, which arrived quickly. Entree orders came quickly and hot. Waitress though busy was very attentive, an overall great experience. If your in the neighborhood whether for a game, other function or just nearby this is the place to go for a good meal,good price and great service."

  • "JT Schmids is a family favorite! The food is always great and their service of course is great too. They just reded their outdoor dining area, which I highly recommend. And if you're with a large group they have a section off to the left that is quiter than the rest of the resturant. If you're going to a Ducks game or any event at the Honda Center, JT Schmids is a must!"

  • "Great spot before any event at Honda Center. Large kids menu and nice beers brewed within. Adding draft beer from other microbreweries would be a huge improvement."

  • "At the last minute decided to see if I could get in before the Ducks game. Went on Opentable and found a 530 reservation. Was shocked that when I walked in at 530 they actually sat us right away. The place is larger than it looks on the inside. All the food we saw and tried tasted great, big portions. Thanks for a good quick dinner!"

  • "Had dinner and Valet parking across the street from the Honda Center before a Hockey game. Friendly staff, fast service. Good food selection. Valet parking was convenient but cost $20.00 instead of the $15 at the Honda Center for a hockey game. Would recommend this restaurant"

  • "The food was great up to a point. We had to send back 2 meals due to waiter error. Made me very uncomfortable. The food saw on the table quickly though. Restaurant wasn't too busy. Looked like a good place for a group of friends."

  • "A good menu with a variety of choices well prepared. We usually go for the seabass or salmon which are both very good. The service is excellent and the servers know the food and beers that are brewed onsite. We ususally eat on the pation, but it was a little chilly and sat inside. Service is excellent in each location and inside can be a little noisy if there is a loud group at the bar. Still, not a deterent to enjoyment."

  • "Service is always nice and attentive. Clean & upbeat atmosphere. Menu needs some help. Food is ok but not a great selection for the prices. Have dropped a couple of our favorite items from the menu...blackened ahi and calamari we miss!"
