Another post where all I can say is keep up the great work. Very cool staff, good food & great beer
Liked the fish and chips!
The Mac and Cheese was delicious! The fish tacos are not bad just a little bland. I’d suggest requesting more seasoning on fish.
The beer is great, the buffalo burger was nicely prepared and the staff are really very cool... I realize that my review of this place is rather consistent, bordering on monotonous, but this restaurant is constantly that good. Keep it up
We like coming here!! Great beer!!
Great casual restaurant with a huge menu! Would definitely recommend the red pepper hummus appetizer
We enjoyed are meal! Both burgers were great! Will come back again!
Enjoyed the ahi poke!
Loved our waiter enhanced our experience. Good is always good
Love the lunch menu- Mexican Burger is great with good heat
We stopped in for a quick dinner on our way to John Wayne Airport. The French dip was delicious. The Poke appetizer was really good also. Our server was very attentive, so we made it to our flight with time to spare!
It's convenient to the sports venues, and a huge bar scene. Great outdoor seating. The food is, meh....The staff, were fine, but I have to say, the Duck fans sitting by us were so nice and friendly!
I had the rib eye steak and was completely underwhelmed. I don’t think this restaurant serves Prime beef. The egg roll appetizer was extremely good. Great location if your going to the movie theater around the corner. Valet is steps away. This is not fine dining. But overall it’s acceptable.
Always great food and service! Never disappointed when I go.
We had lunch/brunch yesterday at JT Schmid's. There were 12 of us and I was so pleased that I could make the reservation for the large party on the Open Table app. Our family was having a get-together from both San Diego and the northwestern Los Angeles area and Tustin was midway. We were all very pleased with the menu and the younger members of our group were very pleased with the beer offerings! Our service was great and we were able to leisurely enjoy our food and visit! After lunch, we enjoyed wandering around the shopping center. We will definitely return!
Really liked the Reuben sandwich and the buffalo chicken sandwich.
We had an appetizer and liked the green bean fries.
We had a party of about 40 people. We made reservations a week in advance. They had everything set up for us upon arrival and accommodated a few extra people that showed up. The service and food were excellent!! Great experience all around!
Great for a big group!
We went there before a concert. Nachos were lukewarm when they finally brought them out. Burger was almost raw when we ordered it we’ll done. They ended up comping our food l. Have had better experience in the past.
2nd visit. Food good but both diners food was lukewarm. Kitchen leaving on the shellfish too long? Service otherwise excellent!
We were at the bar and got to watch a young male get upset when he was carded. He lost his license and couldn't prove he was of legal age. He also wanted additional drinks and the bartender asked for an ID for each person. He didn't have them and stormed off mumbling "I can't believe this place." I can. They dont want to lose their liquor license and did the right thing.
The problem with patio dining at JT Schmid's in Tustin is the restaurant allows smoking on the patio. My party chose to dine on the patio because it is typically quieter than inside the restaurant, but unfortunately the dinner experience was somewhat marred by more than 1 individual smoking. One male patron was smoking a cigarette and the other was smoking a cigar.
I keep coming back because this place keeps doing everything right. Great beers
Great and Quick on service. They don’t excessively check on you and don’t forget either. Drinks and food were very quick as well; didn’t really need much as everything was already given. Food was good even though what I wanted was already out but was recommended for something else still came out great. The veggies even had a lot of flavor even though to seem have a lot of butter and the garlic bread as well but can’t really complain. It’s a bit dark but didn’t mind it considering going on a date. It’s nice for a date or to have a few drinks. Wouldn’t mind to come back to try something else.
Predictable brewpub comfort food 🥘, with good selection of beer 🍺 and wine 🍷, at value prices; perfect for pre-movie date night.
Goat cheese burger could have had a little more cheese on it but I did enjoy it. Good sweet potato fries. Good place to watch college football.
This is a great place, is something I would say if this was 2013. Not sure what happened today, if it was a fluke or what to expect on a typical Sunday afternoon.
We were coming from Rancho Santa Margarita and and we hadn’t been to JT since we moved from Irvine a couple years ago. We checked in at the host station and informed them of our opentable reservation and that we needed a high chair, the gentlemen confirmed yet for some reason took us to a group party room and then disappeared. We were left standing there not knowing where we’re supposed to sit or what to do. We realized there must have been some sort of misunderstanding and went back to the host stand to clear it up. He apologized profusely. Truly not a big deal but I write this part because it compounds the next issue for which there is no excuse.
When we were seated we reminded him the we needed a high chair; we were holding our son this whole time. After getting the other kids situated, we still had not gotten our high chair. We went back up to the host stand and asked if we could get the high chair, and that’s when he said he would help us after another group. We figured ok, not the best response since we’ve already been waiting but probably shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes. However, ten minutes later and my wife and I were still taking turns holding our son because we still didn’t have a high chair. After asking several times it was obvious that we weren’t going to get it so we decided to leave.
This will be our last time coming here.
Location was great. Restaurant was nice. Service was amazing. Food was not that great. Expected a lot more for the price. BJs food is better than theirs. Service made it worth it!
One of the marvels of District area. Highly recommended
Very nice looking restaurant and pleasant decor. However considering this is a brewery type restaurant it took a long time to get drinks and when my first beer arrived it was the wrong one.
The food had good taste and a great variety but when each course came out it had obviously sat in the kitchen before being brought out.
Still a great overall experience
I love this place! Everyone treats me great!
The walnut pear salad w/grilled chicken was great and priced well. The club sandwich/soup was good and priced well.
However, the cowboy burger was not so good and overpriced at that.
The Hostess needs to be more aware, especially when we asked her for the area that would be least noisy. We were seated in a room with the worst acoustics and a group of 16 people. Needless to say, it was so loud our own waiter had a hard time hearing.
Good food and drinks! Our server was very attentive and atmosphere is good. Bar and restaurant area with multiple TV’s be a great place to grab a meal and catch a game!
Found this gem on open table. It was really good. Food was yummy and the servers were really nice.
Our server Jared was great. We were seated right away.
This place keeps up the service and value consistently. Good food, great beer and great staff - keep it up
They were able to accommodate a large group with short notice. Everything was great
Excellent service, food/drinks, and overall experience.
