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,...

Waited forever for order. Husband's cold and had to go back. Had to serve ourselves refills of coffee. The restaurant was almost empty. Won't be back.

After a day driving, needed to find a place to eat and had a craving for pancakes. No better place to try than this Smitty's which was close by. I had the Hay Stack, several nice light fluffy pancakes with lots of syrup. My more health conscious better half had the Greek Chicken Wrap with a fruit cup side. The... More

We had eaten at smitty;s just after it opened and resolved to give it time to get the kinks out. Alas...a year is not enough, The restaurant was nearly empty...and looks uninviting without any plants..pictures on the wall...anything... More

I'm starting to see why this Smittys always has available seating. The service and food quality is not up to par with the other Smittys. The server seemed to rush us even though it took 20 minutes to get our cold pancakes. When my wife brought this up to the server she said that she noticed that the food was... More
