#4 TripAdvisor rating nearby did not disappoint! We enjoyed two baskets of popcorn and Stellas while reviewing the menu options. It was Monday, and many were there for the wings--a good sign. I had read the sandwiches were good--and indeed the Rueben and rib eye sandwich were so tender and delicious! Generous portions too--no need to add a side order... More

It's a nice place to meet friends for lunch or evening meal. Our retiree group meets in their side room where we can enjoy conversation and a great sandwich.

Been here several times and had very good food each time, the drinks are also very good. Staff is very friendly and very efficient. It is a bar mainly but serves a very good meal.

This is a tavern that sells food. I thought the food was pretty good, nothing over the top. It is a little run down but appeared to be clean. Located on a little channel just east of Fond du Lac. Quiet setting most of the time, which may change depending on what game is on. All in all not a... More

Very good food and very nice people. Only down fall was it was busy. Worth the trip. The amount of food for the price was perfect. Only thing on the down side is the parking lot when busy not enough space. All over parking across street. Well worth the stop.

Schmitty's menu primarily contains burgers and sandwiches. I think their burgers are above average, but I wouldn't call them outstanding. I really don't like the buns Schmitty's uses with its burgers. Schmitty's seems to believe strongly in large portions. It would be difficult(and Healthy) to eat an entire meal here. Their service is good and the staff is friendly. Again,... More

My wife and I visited Schmitty's twice last week, simply because we love the food, the setting and the staff. The menu has a variety of selections at a reasonable price. It sits on the lake and there is plenty of parking.

My family and friends have been coming here for years. Johnny does the absolute best running this place. The service is top notch, the food is all delicious, and the drinks are great. You will feel like the most important person in the room no matter if it's your first time there or your thousandth. My personal favorites are the... More

Great place to meet friends. The steak sandwich is huge. One of the best we have ever had. The burgers are great. Appetizers and soups compliment each. Johnny, the owner, works right along with his staff, seating customers, taking orders and checking back at the tables. Gray family owned business. Stop and see all the upgrades they did. Great job!

My family loves this restaurant. We have never had anything we didn't like. The burgers and appetizers are delicious. The prices are reasonable, too
