Great food with a great family atmosphere. Only problem is that it can get hard to talk in that "family atmosphere" as i gets pretty loud during busy times. Wonderful salad bar!

I enjoy going to Schmidty's Bar for dinner when I want to sit down and relax. They do not have a "dress code"and are not stuffy. Friday and Saturday nights can get a bit loud though and families are welcome

Ate dinner here and it was DEEElicious. I had a great salad and chiptole beef soup with homemade herb soup croutons. The prices are very affordable and we took a chance on the weekly jackpot drawing(better odds than any lottery).

I live in northern WI, grew up on foggy flats or French Island. My dad taught us about good food. This place is a disgrace, especially for the price. A TV dinner would have been better. Last time I was here (10 years ago) it was the same, poor food-sad. But my dinner companions told me to try the meatloaf... More

Visited on Friday night with my daughter. This is definitely a locals favorite. We arrived close to 8pm and the place was packed and the people kept coming. We were greeted right away, had a very good drink at the bar, and were seated within 15 min. Our waitress was wonderful and delivered my seafood platter and my daughters prime... More

I had never eaten here before and since we're always looking for different places to try, we decided to check it out. It was a Friday night and we were very happy that we got there early! The place was packed by the time we left which was around 6:30. We each had the burgundy pepper sirloin with a baked... More

Really fun atmosphere for a true Wisconsin bar. Staff is friendly! Try the cheese curds and don't forget some free popcorn. A great place to watch football.

My wife and I had lunch at Schmidty's last Saturday. We both had the pan fried cod and it was delicious. The service was top notch. Prices are very reasonable. There is also plenty of parking.

Met friends for supper when we were in La Crosse. Food and salad bar were excellent so we went back for our anniversary dinner. The steak (Jameson Whiskey Steak) was one of the best I've ever head. The beef stew soup was awesome the first night we were there.
