Was in town during the Oktoberfest period and had a ball @ this authentic German facility in what is known in Columbus as the German Village Area. Got to the place on a City Bus, Was pleasantly surprised by the great diversity of beer selections that were available in the place .
Everyone in my party ate off the menu, but I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse selection, and the great $ value that was afforded by the Buffet Menu. If you can get past the tourists, it is a great place to eat and drink.

Schmidt's? Groan, what can I say? Tourist trap in German Village. Watch those curbs, they'll eat your wheels. Cream puffs, brats, nice selection of beers. It is what it is and it's very successful at what it is. Personally, having lived in the Columbus area for over 30 years, I prefer the Old Mohawk.

Schmidt's is the place in Columbus that best capture's the city's German past by offering good German food and beer in a beer garden setting.
While the selection of beers is not huge, they do offer a good selection of both German styles and German imported brews to complement the German fare. Their best sausage is the Bahama Mama, a spicy sausage that is perfectly complemented by a nice hefeweizen. Also not to be missed are their excellent creme puffs.
If you plan to visit on the weekends, be sure to arrive early, as the wait goes to some pretty long times due to its popularity.

Just returned from visiting relatives in Columbus and made my second trip to Schmidt's. Being a holiday weekend the wait was over an hour and the place was expectedly packed. Nonetheless, it was worth it for their tremendous sausages and sides. Nice beer selection that compliments their cuisine nicely. Local brewery Elevator Brewing supplies their traditional German style house beers. The wife opted for a black lager which was tasty while I went with a Spaten Maibock which was excellent as well. The place can definitely get a little touristy and I've never eaten dinner there, only lunch, so I have missed the oompah band.That being said, if you like German food it's worth the wait and somewhat cheesy vibe, as the food, beer, and service were excellent.

I made my first trip to German Village to go to Schmidt's last night after a long day at the Columbus Zoo. Everybody was starving which was a good thing. Anyways I was surprised at how small it was, but the good thing is they packed people in here. Got there between 6:30 and 7 pm and it was a 20 to 30 minute wait, not bad. They handled my party of seven with no problems, good service attentive to my little ones and the adults with refills on our big 32oz mugs of Paulaner Oktoberfest, which I decided to stick with since it was so fresh tasting. Other options on tap were Elevator brewed Schimdt's dunkel or helles, Warsteiner, Warsteiner dunkel, Paulaner hefewezien, and one more I can't think of. They had a nice mix of German bottles as well. Food wise my family decided to ride the Autobahn, full of sausage including. Garlic knockwurst, bratwurst, Bahama Mama, Bahama Mama mild, and Sausage stew. Meatloaf was killer with some red skinned mashed potatoes. German potato salad, red cabbage, and sauerkraut. With some kid friendly options thrown in as well, vegetable soup, mac and cheese, and green beans all done really well. I've only seen one better example of ethnic food on a buffet before, that would be the Red Apple in Chicago for Polish food. Needless to say we were stuffed, so we brought dessert home, cream puffs were killer three main varieties were vanilla, chocolate, and peanut butter chocolate. They also had coconut cream pie, apple streudel, and other options. Definitely wasn't a beer destination but the limited variety of beer was really good in this small German bier and sausage haus. No live polka on this visit but it was a Tuesday night. Will go back but the novelty of the Autobahn may have worn off I'm ready for some Spaetzel and schnitzel, so a great experience overall we will be back If you go with the buffet kids eat for 4.99 and adults are around 13 dollars, and cream puffs are discounted to 2.50 with the buffet. Bier pricing 8 bucks for the big mugs, and 6 someting for a 22 ounce pint glass. It was worth it for the beer to go with the food, but if it's just for beer you'll find me at Bodega with 50 taps half off drafts during the week from 4-8pm.

As it has been said here before, this is a place you must go if you are visiting Columbus but it should not be your first beercentric destination.
Located in the middle of German Village, this is a historic part of the city. Its a very old fashioned German restaurant specializing in sausage. You see plenty of Irish pubs, but this is one of the very few traditional German restaurants.
They have made this a whole attraction with an adjacent fudge and gift shop, sausages to-go and staff dressed in lederhosen. There is usually live polka/accordion music as well.
The bar is off sorta separate from the rest of the place. Its tucked in towards the back on the left side. They have some of the typical German imports like a few from Paulaner. Elevator also brews one or two beers especially for Schmidt's. The beer selection isnt stellar, but they have decent examples of the more popular German ales and lagers (marzen, hefewiezen etc). You can get them in pretty large sizes. I believe the large mugs are at least 22oz.
On my most recent visit for dinner I ordered the Elevator brewed oktoberfest. The waiter mixed things up and brought me a Paulaner Hefe. So it is my impression that the staff knows little about the beer.
Go for the food and atmosphere, if you are looking for a huge beer selection go else where, unless you want some German imports.
