Great service.
Food was yummy.
The prices were very high!

Because the prices were so high, I would not recommend JT Shmid's.

Drinks were so so small. Only filled glass half full. Asked waitress if there was a mistake in making them. Her reply was that the restaurant is now corporate owned and they have strict guidelines as to how many ounces drinks can be. If this is the case they should at least put them in smaller glasses so they it isn't so obvious you are being ripped off. Menu very limited, but food was OK for bar type food.

Great location if you are attending an event at the Honda Center (which we did) as it's a 5 min walk across the street. Make a reservation, those without were being turned away. Nick, our server, was great!!

Food wasn't great, but the convenience to the Honda Center is unparalleled. Made a reservation for 4, was allowed to increase to 6 which we greatly appreciated. Thank you. Restaurant has always been very accomodating.

The old shoestring fries were the best. Hate that they changed the fries to regular thick-cut fries. Super average. Honestly super disappointed about the lack of shoestring to their fry.

Very disappointed the outdoor television are no longer working. Wanted to watch the World Series. Seems like an easy fix to me. JT Schmid's use to be a great outdoor restaurant and bar, but now it the outdoor area is mostly shut down.

Have been coming here for years. Our go to restaurant before attending the Ducks games. Many changes have been made after re opening due to Covid and new ownership. Menu is VERY limited and Very expensive from what it once was. Staff was friendly, service was good, but food and prices...not so much. Sadly, will be looking for a new pre game dinner spot. :(

Limited menu on patio, but still plenty of great food options. Their jambalaya (they call it Jamba Ya Ya) was outstanding. Just enough spicy to get washed down by their Hazy Day IPA. Cheers!

This the not the JT Schmid’s of old. The long-time wait staff is gone as well as all the good beers and ales. Also, the food was terrible. A very limited menu with food similar to fast food. Gone are the ribs, mac & cheese, burgers with bacon and blue.
The waitress was very nice and apologetic. Too bad as we have eaten at Schmid’s prior to walking over to the Ducks games for many seasons. Now we will be going elsewhere.

What a disappointment! Used to love coming here before games and events at the Honda Center. But since the Ducks purchased the restaurant the menu has been greatly changed. The choices are very limited and not a whole lot of variety. Thank goodness our server Nick was amazing, or it would have been a complete waste of time. And talk about overpriced!

This was one of our go to places for lunch, we ate more at the now closed Tustin location than this one, but with all of the changes, we doubt we’ll be back. The beer is still good but after an appetizer, we thought we should get out while we could. We got the nachos and were beyond disappointed. For the price, it wasn’t worth it. The brown gravy on the nachos was supposed to be some sort of meat sauce but lacked meat and had the consistency of chili one would find at a gas station snack bar. There were a few jalapeños, onions and some type of watery cheese sauce. The nachos were brought to the table with no plates or napkins and no server in sight to request them from. These are the type of nachos that one would know expect to get at a sporting event concession stand and not from a place that refers to themselves as a restaurant. The nachos at a sporting event are a better value since the ones here aren’t worth it.

Busy night as we were going to a show at the Honda Center right after dinner. While it took a while to get our food, it was worth the wait and the service was excellent. The waitress and manager made sure we were happy and satisfied with our meals. We truly appreciated the ice cream sundae with chocolate brownies and churros with whip cream and sprinkles! There is plenty of parking in the back of the restaurant and it’s very kid friendly. Will definitely be returning.

We were disappointed with our experience. It was our 19 year anniversary on this date, premised it on our reservation and with the waitress upon entering and no acknowledgement. Was hoping for a small dessert, candle or anything to enlighten our day. The waitress had to be new. She was unable to answer meal questions, didn’t put things on side as we asked. Didn’t bring our salads 1st, got our meal 1st. What brought us in was a coupon. They would not accept it since it was from prior ownership. Manager not professional in my eyes. All around unhappy. Restaurant was empty. No customers and I may see why. No complaints on our food other than French fries Luke warm.

The table we first had was too small but the host ended up moving us to another table which was great. The menu seemed very limited. The service was okay. It was my birthday which the waitress was aware of, but didn’t do anything special. I kind of expected a free dessert or something.

The Restaurant is nice and our server was efficient and professional . The food was ordinary for the price. $20.00 for a small pepperoni pizza that did not taste homemade and comparable to a frozen pizza. The $23.00 burger was ok , but the french fries were lukewarm and not very tasty.

I would not go back again.

The new menu items were nice to see. Steak and frites was cooked perfectly and well seasoned just a little pricey not to include a salad. Beers are always excellent!

We came after my 2 sons games. It was one of my son’s birthday yesterday. I put it in the notes thinking they’d him with dessert. That didn’t happen. We hadn’t been here in a few years. The food has gone downhill. What happened to the skinny fries!? The pizza was not fresh. The nachos are a joke. We won’t be returning.

Showed up before reservation said table wasn’t ready. Waited 10 min after outside and finally had to go inside and ask about table. We’re told its been ready but no one came to get us. Didn’t even stay for reservation. Total ghost town. Chased down to our table because we didn’t have masks on. Maybe 2 other groups in entire restaurant. Assuming it was the manager very rude. Waitress seemed nice and understanding. Go down the street on Katella. Better restaurants down the street! Highly recommend prime cut cafe!

When a reservation is made, it has to be known that the menu is extremely limited!! This restaurant was chosen mostly because of the diverse menu.
Also The employees had very little experience taking care of a customers. Several mistakes and annoying calls to the table.

Service and food were fantastic. Atmosphere and environment were also excellent. Food was a bit on the pricey side and while I plan to return, not all of my guests were excited to come back due to price.
