Food was great after I received it after waiting an hour and a half. I asked the waiter what happened and he said the kitchen lost the order on the floor. I then told him to send a Manager over which he did and I explained the situation to him and told him to do the right thing and he gave me credit for I drink and a soda?? Wow!!! I didn’t want create a scene with my son there as we were going to the hockey game. Your manager dropped the ball on his cheap way of handling the situation. You should teach him some customer service skills.”

Went south. Waitress changed. First one great, second one a pain! What an attitude! Food was very mediocre. Nice to meet there and walk across to Honda Center. You can pay to

Ordered pretzel, fish and chips, and buffalo burger between 2 of us.

Fish over cooked (tortured) but fries ice cold. Buffalo burger arrives not as ordered (sauce on side requested) but fries screaming hot. Strange given my cold fries. Pretzel ok but only a few drops of mustard in cup. Pretzel arrived after entrees.

Server was good.

Food and service was good. Called a head to ask about parking as was going to hockey game. Was told on phone it was $20 and would be added to bill.
Got to parking lot and attendant demanded $25 cash.
If I was told truth I would have.parked at rink for $20 which would have made leaving game easier. Feel lied too

The overall ambiance is like a Cheesecake Factory. The food was decent with the exception of the steak. We ordered 2 orders and it was chewy n highly disappointed for pricing above $30.00. At the very least get some decent steak.

Motto for service should be churn and burn. Entrees came out about 2 minutes after the appetizers. The waitress did warn us it was likely going to happen but didn't seem to be able to do anything about it. The house draft wasn't great either.

Dining here after our team worked a long show at the Convention Center, it would've been nice to relax and enjoy our meal. I never thought service that was too fast would be a downfall but it was way too fast and almost made us feel like turning the table over as quickly as possible was the first priority over providing an excellent customer dining experience. We ate fast because we felt pressured to! Fish & Chips looked good but turned out to be the driest fish ever. Rest of our meals were ok. I'm sure not all servers were as in a hurry as ours since other tables appeared to be more relaxed enjoying their meals. Canceled our reservations for the next evening and will not be booking her for next year's show.

We were there on a Thursday 6 pm. Fairly casual place to dine. Outdoor sports bar looked fabulous but we dined inside due to wet weather. Interior decor and ambiance was good. No complaints there. Overall liked the food. Our waitress was great. One of our sons thought the poke style appetizer was a a bit over dressed with ginger and masked the fish flavor. This is coming from a person who lived in Japan for 5 years. The rest of us liked it. I ordered some brussel sprouts. I liked the char and roast of them but they were swimming in oil. So next time I will mention this when I order. Beer is great with a fabulous selection along with scotch and bourbon. Portions were ample, was able to feed four adults (three men) for about $120 with beers. I had made reservations through Open Table and noted it was my husband's birthday but no acknowledgement was made. It truly was not a bit deal for us but I thought I should mention this for the sake of others. For the same reason, I mentioned it to the hostess on my way out. She was very apologetic. We plan on returning, just a few tweaks here and there and it would have been a four star or even a five star rating.

I really enjoyed my luncheon with 2 other business associates. The service was great, the food was timely and the noise was at a good level so we could talk! Back to the food....it is great! I enjoy the uniqueness of the menu and their ability to have something for everyone that is yummy. Even kids enjoy it here! Thanks for a meal and environment that you can count on!

Beer selection and service were very good. However, at $20.95 the fish & chips were overpriced. In addition, they were dry. Secondarily the wings were meaty, but didn’t have a lot of heat or flavor.

Very average food for the price.

Picked this restaurant based on the great reviews. While server was top notch, the quality and taste of food was sub-par (fish tacos, tasted off and chips were stale). Hostess took five minutes to seat us even with reservations, not crowded and three of them at the arrival area.

JT Schmid's has a great variety to their food menu and has great service overall. Like with any brewery, they have a good selection of their own beer. Good atmosphere and is perfect if you are going to a Ducks game or other event at the Honda Center across the street. The only thing they could improve on would be their dessert menu. Great place overall though.

Had early 5:45pm reservations for Valentines Day with many booths available but they tried to seat us at a table. We requested a booth and was then escorted to the one booth right outside the server kitchen with approx 6 more available in that same row. I had just signed up for their loyalty program and the host/hostesses and server knew nothing about it so I had to ask our server to check with the Manager. Finally was told they don't give cards anymore but instead they use the phone number. The final thing was we had both ordered the Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken. It was so salty neither of us could finish it. If I didn't have a bad cold, I would've fought this bill but we called it a night. FYI - The Manager was never seen visiting tables, just standing on the ramp outside the servers station watching the Olympics. We'be been here quite a bit but after this visit, probably won't be going back.

Our food was good, but it was warm not hot. The restaurant was busy, so the waitress wasn't as attentive as I would have liked. I like that they take reservations. It makes it really easy when you have an even across the street at the Honda Center.

The food and service was very good at JT Schmid's. The Cherry Moscow Mule was delicious and so was the Stout beer. Hamburgers were cooked to order and tasty. We were impressed with large size of the restaurant and the outdoor bar area. Because it's so large with lots of people the noise level was high, so it was hard to hear each other. The location was perfect for Honda Center and City National Grove of Anaheim. Will come back in the future.

we showed up and were told we did not have a reservation . That was upsetting . The 3 girls seemed unsure what to do when I showed them my reservation conformation on my phone . They looked at me like I had done something wrong and were upset I had proved them wrong . We were seated and the service was stellar . local beers were good and the drinks were strong. The food was like a really good bar food . For me the ribs were over cooked and way to much sauce . I have eaten here several times over the years and the steaks have always been great. I have never been unhappy with the food but the ribs were just not what I prefer . The smell of the rids when we entered the place is why I ordered them. service was great food is normally great and the price was good. There is a outside bar where my guest can smoke which they really like .
