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

My husband and I stop here time to time to have breakfast for supper. The service is always fast, friendly and the food is always hot.

A group of us met for brunch on a Sunday. Staff were accommodating and put tables together for 6 of us. Service was fast. Lots to choose from on the menu. Food was good and hot. I like the fact they give the table a pot of coffee, so no need to wait for staff. The back room was great... More

We eat here at least once a month. Friendly waitresses, short wait times, good food for a good price. There's not a lot of variety of places to eat in the Tantallon / Hammonds Plains area. This is definitely a safe choice.

We were really looking forward to eating here. However once inside it was almost deserted ! I must say that the place was very clean and so were the "loos" The server was friendly enough,but she called everyone of us "darlin" ! Very annoying. We all looked at the extensive menu and was impressed with the variety on offer! The... More

My wife and I eat at this Smitty's regularly and much prefer it to the only other comparable restaurant in Upper Tantallon. We were there last Thursday, 25 April, 2013, and started with the garlic cheese bread. It came with a lot of cheese so delightfully hot we had to wait a few minutes until it cooled a bit. However,...
