The cauliflower was amazing. It was a bit too quiet for a sports bar now that Covid has changed our dining out habits. I wish they were open later!

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.

Our experience was wonderful! The food was very good, we had the halibut fish and chips and it was awesome. We had reservations and were seated right away, the best part was our waiter, Steve was the BEST! We would go back again for sure! The food was also delivered quickly so if you’re going to an event at the Honda center it’s the place to be!

I made my reservation several days in advance due to the fact we were a party of 6 and there was an event at the Honda Center. We were squeezed into a booth, when asked for a table we were told there would be a 45 min. wait. I thought the reason for making a reservation is that they hold a table for you. Very disappointing. As far as the food and service good as always.

On game nights it would be nice if the table service had better coverage. Drinks sit empty for a while before server asks if refill are needed.
Everything else is good.

We love JT Schmids. This was our first time at the Anaheim location. The food was amazing as always. The service was good. I was disappointed by the bathrooms, and wondered if they were in such disrepair how the kitchen might look. The woman’s restroom only had 1 soap dispenser, there were holes where the other 2 were supposed to be. Stalls obviously hadn’t been checked in hours, most were out of toilet paper. One staff member did put rolls just sitting on top of the dispenser later, but that’s kinda gross. I inquired about soap, because the one dispenser was empty and after several minutes she brought hand sanitizer. I was grateful for that but think they need to address restrooms more. They were very busy at first with people going to activities at Honda center and Angels stadium, but it had died down enough there was time they could have checked the restrooms. Overall food was great, and that’s the most important part!

Heard the Tustin location closed and this one stayed open. Hopefully the staff from Tustin, especially the ones from the kitchen, get sent here.
