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.

The restaurant itself was fantastic inside with an outdoor patio area; also, the bar area was well placed and a good venue to watch a sports event; But, the food was terrible and not cheap. What chef cannot make rice??? The jambalaya was sticky and gooey!! the egg rolls were frozen and tasted as such. I hear that the Buffalo Burger is good?? the waitress was excellent!

I go to JT Schmid's frequently for dinner or lunch before events at Honda Center and enjoy the typical sports bar fare and ambiance. Reasonable selection and good appetizers.
Usually, I get great service from wait staff ( especially Gabbi and Katie) but, on this visit, had the ABSOLUTE WORST wait staff ever ( Jenn B). She was rude, did not get our order right ( how can you mess up order for small caesar salad and soup?) Told us they could not make a sandwich from menu as they did not have "the right bread" and could not fit to go pizzas in bags( too big for bags) - when they have fit EVERY OTHER TIME we ordered.
Enjoy JT most times, but not this visit.

A noisy, fun place for Happy Hour or a meal. Lots of TVs with a variety of sporting events. Good food and service.

We came here prior to the Hurricanes game. I expected that the parking charge would have been discounted if not free since we were dining at the restaurant. We were told the parking would be $25. That is more than the general parking at the Honda Center which is $20. Very disappointing that there wasn't a discounted rate since we spent money to eat there. The service was not good. We saw the waiter 3 times. One to ask our drink order, two to ask our food order, and three to drop off the check. I was not impressed with the food either. We sat at a small table for two and did not have enough room on the table for our plates of food and drinks. We were also placed right by the kitchen so it was very distracting and chaotic. Overall, I will not come again. Total bad experience.

We were there for business and there was a Ducks game across the street so the noise level was high. I should have checked prior to making this reservation.
We were disappointed when one of the dishes came to the table wrong; wrong cheese, wrong potatoes, etc. Waitress offered to bring another plate, but we decided to pass as we all already had our meals. The wrong meal went untouched and the waitress was very nice to remove it from our bill.

Fish was over cooked. They had trouble finding my reservation. When they finally found it, I told them I was there for a birthday celebration. They said they would tell the server, but did not. Would not go back.

We went before the rush hour so it was pretty empty but I know this place can get packed considering it’s proximity to the Honda Center and Angel Stadium. Great waitress with excellent customer service. Nice talking to her as well! Food was good for what it was and I would go back here for some drinks with friends or to watch sports games.
