A modern Cantina, featuring authentic Mexican cuisine from Central Mexico, served in a stunning surrounding of handcrafted woodwork and wrought iron. All dishes are made fresh and in house, with an emphasis on delicious, yet health conscious cuisine. We combine a variety of fresh vegetables and wholesome proteins with traditional sauces and flavors. Our signature cocktails are made from scratch, with whole juices, agave nectar, and natural sweeteners instead of prepackaged mixes or syrups.

"Good place to watch a game but the food is nothing to get excited about. The place was nearly empty but they have a set TV pattern for the games that can't be changed."

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. 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.

"Good place to eat and watch college football. Much better when the offered points were higher. Is that why they are always empty now?"

The Ayres family has been serving up fantastic Steaks, Chops, Ahi Sandwiches, Signature Salads and House-made Desserts for decades. Each location bears a lively atmosphere where friends and neighbors can be seen table-hopping while business associates hammer out important deals.<br><br>In Brea, we have an exquisite private dining room and a fabulous covered patio that can host private groups of up to 150 guests.

"The portion sizes seem to vary from order to order. The couple next to us had so much calamari they had to get a box to take it home. We didn't seem to have that problem."

"Found the guacamole with baon to be a little odd since the bacon is on the side and not mixed in with the guacamole. Possibly it is done that way in case you have a vegan is eating with you. Other than that, not bad spot to watch some games."

"We started off with a couple of appetizers. When they were brought out, we were told that they had run out of one of the appetizers and did we want something else. Our question was why did they wait until they served the food to tell us? We could have ordered something else if we haD known. When the ticket got to the kitchen, wasn't anyone there able to tell someone that the item had been 86'd? Found that to be really strange. We had no idea if this was a common practice for them. We ordered our food at 5:30. If they had a shift meeting, wouldn't it have been discussed that they were low on that one item and to check to see if they still had it before an order was placed. Looks like the kitchen doesn't communicate with the wait staff."

"Liked the chilaquiles with chicken but found the picada de carnitas to be on the tough side. Great guacamole."
