My friends and I were here for brunch last Sunday while it was raining cats and dogs. I loved the skillets! Tasty and yummy! Everyone loved their orders and the staff were super efficient and helpful. Food was great, restaurant was kept clean even though customers were coming in out of the rain. I'd go there again.

We were welcomed and served exceedingly well. my wife and I had classic burger and fries, wings and a plate of onion rings, along with a coffee each. All food was hot, tasty and exceedingly generous. We wished we lived closer to this establishment so we could eat there more often. Highly recommended. Burger and fries: $11.29 Wings: $10.99 Onion... More

We had come all the way from South Shore to try Smitty's for the first time as a family. Coming on Mother's Day was such a great idea as they were offering an all-you-can-eat buffet for breakfast and the choices were fantastic! Prices were great, the food was replenished in a timely manner, and everyone in the restaurant seemed to... More

Friendly staff and good service. However, the food could use improvement. The breakfast sausages were tough to cut into although tasty. The eggs which were supposed to be over medium were really over hard. The waffle was so so and the french toast below par. Coffee was very good. Hash browns were excellent.

Went in for a quick lunch and ordered soup and sandwich. Mine was great, however, hubby's bread was VERY stale (like it had been exposed to air for a long time). They tried to make it right and didn't charge him for the meal - they also gave him a gift certificate for next time so they handled the situation... More

Had supper by myself at Smittys on Lacewood Dr. Halifax NS on this date. It is a clean and friendly family atmosphere with a good selection of everyday food. The server was friendly, courteous and I learned he was a university student. Had a roast beef sandwich with a dipping sauce and fries with a beer for St. Patrick's Day.... More

We go to Smitty's, probably every few months when we are in the Tantallon area. The food is always very good. Service is friendly (sometimes overly) and punctual. We did not like being referred to as "darlin". There are a couple of staff there who need to tone it down a bit. However, this will not stop us from going... More
