Five generations of authentic German hospitality.
Greetings from German Village, the largest, privately funded restoration project in the U.S.
Schmidt’s Restaurant and Banquet Haus is the culmination of five generations of the Schmidt family working to bring real German food and authentic German hospitality to the community. Known for their decadent Jumbo Cream Puffs and signature Bahama Mamas, Schmidt’s has been a staple in German Village for more than 120 years.
Schmidt’s, a nationally registered historic site tucked away in German Village, is located in a historic brick livery stable at 240 E. Kossuth St. and Purdy Alley. Upon entering the restaurant, you quickly realize the atmosphere is second-to-none. With a beautiful banquet haus upstairs and live German music throughout the week, Schmidt’s takes the German experience beyond their one-of-a-kind menu items and transports you to your own piece of Germany, right in the heart of Ohio.
Schmidt’s began crafting its German cuisine in 1886. Today their menu features some of the most original and delicious German dinners. Whether its the appetizing Alpine Chicken Spatzel or the well-prepared Weiner Schnitzel und Gravy, Schmidt’s has just what you’re looking for. The recipes featured on the menu have been developed and re-developed by the Schmidt family over the past 126 years to ensure that they are truly unique to Schmidt’s Restaurant und Banquet Haus.
