The nachos nirvana were great but our server unfortunately was not. He wasn’t very attentive and our entrees were cold. Unfortunately we are never coming back here again.

My partner and I used to come here before the pandemic and it was great. They had a lot of food items, decent prices and drinks. This time around was very disappointing. The food was way overpriced, didn’t make sense with the food combinations, didn’t taste very good, the appetizers we used to love...are no longer on the menu. The cocktails were very weak. We would not be returning.

We were looking for a quick bite before the game so it was great. Great for burgers and something quick. Not a fine dining place but very good before a game or to watch one there!

We had tickets to Opening Day at Angels Stadium. The game started at 7 pm so I wanted to be at the stadium by about 6 pm. We arrived at JT Schmid’s at 4:45 pm and were seated immediately. The patio quickly filled with patrons. It took 20 minutes for the waitress to take our order. The food came in a timely fashion. The pizza was bland. We finished eating by 5:40 pm and waited for the bill. We finally had to call over the manager to get the check. By 6 pm the waitress still hadn’t taken our payment. We finally left by 6:20 . By then the entrance to the parking was packed and we barely got into the stadium at 6:40 with just enough time to get to our seats. We went for the convenience to the stadium but the food and service will keep us from returning.

Our server was great and extremely nice but the food was unfortunately horrible. The ambiance is nice to get drinks and appetizers, we did enjoy the pretzel and guac. I ordered a ham and cheese sandwich and they brought out a sandwich that was as hard and dry as cardboard with a slab of sauce barely any cheese and dried out ham with almost frozen cheese curds inside. My friends ordered Nashville chicken sandwich and it had a penny like flavor to it. We also ordered the chicken lime pasta and the sauce was watered down with no flavor.

The atmosphere and drinks were great! We were served raw shrimp in the shrimp scampi, but the waiter graciously took the dish away and took it off of our bill. The food was very pricey for the quality. Would come back again for a few drinks and the pretzel.

Food was delicious. They need to keep steaks on the menu as regular customers expect them as they have been a steak house for decades. The only problems with service was that the table was not properly cleaned- still had food crumbs- and the waitress was taking care of took many tables, but still good service.

Overpriced and underwhelming. Small servings. They let this couple in without masks. Overall disappointed. 1 star restaurant with 5 star aspirations. Prices to don't reflect quality. Service was good.

We came here for Valentine’s dinner and was truly disappointed with the food and service. There was no ambiance whatsoever to celebrate the day of Love. There were several issues that were not handled correctly. Near the end of the evening I finally went to the Mgr Johnny after 3 times of asking for him did I finally get to speak with him. I expressed my views as that way they could correct the mistakes and even though we got a small credit it really didn’t help the event as we were still hungry and still paid a decent amount for the evening. I understand that the owner passed away but with management they should have gone above and beyond to make this Valentine’s special for people. Not sure if we will go back but you never know. As you can see the steak was mostly fat. Ugh.

Disappointed with the food and service. Ordered the cob salad the chicken was dry and tasted old. The food came out after a long wait and food brought out at varying times. The food was cold ex soup and shrimp scampi. My first time but other family members haven been there before and commented service and food typically much better. Maybe an off night?

We came here for lunch on Valentine's Day and everything was perfect! Service was great, the food was delicious and the patio was perfect for outdoor dining! Everyone loved their food and I had the tuna nachos and I can't wait to go back again and order them! Highly recommend them for high quality food and a safe outside dining experience!

This was my first time at this restaurant, and I loved it. Staff was very nice, efficient and attentive. Food was fantastic and very fresh. Music was great! The only problem I had was that my lemon drop martini was pre-mixed; much too sweet, and there was no evidence of alcohol. I could have complained, but since restaurants just opened, and staff was so nice, I just left it alone and charged it to paying my dues in this horrible pandemic. This is a great restaurant and I’ll go back again.

Wee we went to watch a college football game and we were thankful they put it on. They never checked me in to get my points. We had to send back our chicken wings since there were little hairs all over them and not cooked well. The tuna wonton nachos were very good. The pizza was small for the price. I even called about my points and never heard back. I will not return to this location.

We were never big fans of the food here but our opinion has changed since they reopened. The food is now edible and haven’t had to send anything back. The appetizers are great and have enjoyed the tater tots. Some discounts on Sundays for football. Too bad it isn’t done for Saturday football too.

It was just ok. They seem a bit lost since Jason died. The OC Register had an article talking about the new menu and changes, so we thought we’d give it a try. The beer cheese soup the paper raved about was too thick and not great. My wedge salad was good and I added steak which had good flavor, but it was only about 3-4 ounces. My husband ordered a house Caesar salad with chicken, and it was just ok. College football was on (yay) but the house music was on too loud and the music seemed out of place. Overall, just ok, but I don’t think we’ll be back.

We all ways go this restaurant be fore games, all ways make reservations, but my husband and I are always seated against wall at a small table. I fume because I see other couples seated at 4 or larger seated tables. This is getting very OLD. How can I get this to change?
