JT Schmid’s was established in 1997 on a simple premise – to offer a splendid variety of the finest California cuisine and microbrews under one roof. We also wanted to create an atmosphere that was warm & inviting, thus our dedication to craftsmanship is reflected in our comfortable yet lively surroundings. And, because we take pride in our brewing process and delicious food, we have displayed our brewery and kitchen so that you might enjoy watching our Chef and Brew master as they carefully work their magic. It is our sincere hope that our commitment to quality will make us your favorite brewery and premier eatery in Orange County.<br />California Cuisine best describes our diverse menu. We offer cuisine from all corners of the world. The centerpiece of our kitchen is a wood-burning brick oven which generates gourmet pizza and other of the Chef’s creations. Other specialties include Seared Ahi, Sweet Potato Fries, Jambalaya, and Steaks & Seafood.

"Found the calamari to be be a little too chewy and on the dry side. Doubt I would order it again. At least it wasn't greasy."

For Centuries the English Inn has earned a great reputation for Friendly faces, cozy rooms and cheery firesides. As soon as guests come to the Inn, the charming host and hostesses run to greet them. In front of a crackling fire one can partake of good hearty fare - the tankard is always full - the spit hung with roasting beefs - and a table heaped with sweets and such.<br /> The Inn keepers of the Summit House were inspired by the custom to create a hospitable place where friends could meet to eat, drink and delight in the views of North Orange County's countryside.<br />To one and all, welcome!

"Everyone liked their meal but I've always felt this place was nothing more than overpriced mediocre banquet food. The service was great. High markup given the day. $10 for a salad that was a few cents of lettuce. They did have unlimited cream corn but how much cream corn can you eat or actually want."

République, located in mid-city, is owned by Chef Walter Manzke and Chef Margarita Manzke along with their partner, restaurateur Bill Chait. Centered in the heart of Los Angeles, the classic building in which it resides was originally erected in 1929 by Charlie Chaplin, and later transformed into the iconic La Brea Bakery and Campanile Restaurant. République builds on this storied past, offering a gastronomic environment imbued with history and grandeur. The space features a casual bar and bistro in the front with a more formal dining area located in the rear, serving a French-inspired menu created daily by our Chefs.

"The white salad lacked flavor. The cauliflower salad was much better. The salmon crudo with pork rinds and steak Tatar were excellent. The foie gras seemed overpriced. It was okay but not something we would order here again. The service was on the slow side. The busboy asked twice if the server had been by. No. He went to get her since she was busy talking with the other servers. It took 15 minutes from the time we were seated for her to take a drink order. The busboy on the other hand was very attentive. I should have gotten his name so he could be complimented."

L’Assiette, which means “the dish” in French, located in West Hollywood, features one dish and one dish only: Steak-Frites, so it's prepared with the proper care and attention it deserves. (Delicious accommodations for non-meat eaters are available, just ask your server.) The simple yet sophisticated menu, also offers a variety of cheeses and pastries creating the quintessential Steak-Frites experience from start to finish.<br /><br />Thirsty? L’Assiette has an extensive selection of domestic and imported beers and wines available at the bar, which pairs perfectly with their new Late Night Bar Menu.

"Excellent steak and fries. We had lunch with a BBE special so don't know it the double portion is offered during lunch. The salad is a better option than the soup. Worth coming to again."

"This location is much better than the one in Las Vegas. Everything we had was outstanding. Really enjoyed the lemon chicken, eggplant parmesan, and the spaghetti. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure that we were having an excellent meal. They appear willing to accommodate your request since we overheard the bartender offering to toss a girl's salad right at the bar with a dressing that needed to be specially mixed by the server. Free parking is difficult to find in the area and you may be forced to use the valet."

"We have heard about this place for years and this was our first time here. Had a hamburger that was very moist and flavorful. The turkey sandwich was on the dry side. The drinks were great. The outdoor patio looked like a good place to sit if you wanted to be out in the sun."
