Schmidt's Restaurant and Sausage Haus

~ German Village ~
Columbus, Ohio
Converted from a brick livery stable in 1886 to a meatpacking house and then later, a restaurant and beer garden. There are mostly German items on the menu, many created by the Schmidt family in the last five generations.

The restaurant has old-world decor with wood floors and brick walls.
Waitresses and waiters dressed in authentic costumes take your order,
and you can have your photo taken behind the painted figures outside.
Jack and I had the Reuben sandwich with a side of German potato salad…
EXCELLENT! We wish we had left room to share the “ half-pound cream puff ” on the menu above.
Those things were enormous!

Schmidt's has provided food for the Ohio State Fair for over 80 years.
If you live nearby...check it out!


  1. Suzy - so glad to see you return to Mosaic Monday!!! Our son went to school in Columbus (Ohio State), and I know we have driven by Schmidt's many times. Looks like we should have gone in!

  2. I'm sorry. We had no electricity and therefore now my late comment here...

    ...thank you for sharing, I enjoyed reading. Wow, it was interesting.

    Happy MosaicMonday
