Standard Chain Breakfast Restaurant

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... read 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

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

My wife and I eat at this restaurant frequently, but always it has been for evening dinner. However, as of the beginning of October, brunches are now being served on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 2pm. There is no other brunch buffet in this end of Halifax. We went yesterday to try the brunch. It was very good and... More

We met friends from Halifax for Lunch on our way home to Florida. Went to Smitty's. The service was outstanding. The food was typical dinner fare. Nothing special. However, if your on the road and want adequate food with good service Smitty's will do.

Nice looking restaurant, good location, friendly service, SLOW kitchen. Waited 1 hour for French toast and was served the kids menu French toast. I dared not wait for my proper order. Waitress was friendly and helpful but this is just ridiculous. By the way they still billed me. At least they only billed me for the kids menu, but it... More
