We have eaten here lots and always find the service great and the food good. If we have wanted an adjustment to an order it is always okay. This restaurant likes to please!

My husband and I ate here late on a Friday evening. The waitress was cheery, the roast beef dinner was good, the portion just right. We were very happy with our Smitty's experience and will definitely eat there again.

We visited this restaurant for a lunchtime meal and were not disappointed. The service was excellent - we were immediately greeted and attended to consistently throughout the meal, even though there were quite a few other people in the restaurant. There was a bit of a wait for the food but when it came, it was good. I would definitely... More

The food was excellent, service was very friendly and efficient, and the timing was wonderful. Though it was busy, we didn't have to wait long for our meal. Will go again!

It's a family restaurant in a decent sized town. I have to admit, the food was good, hot and fresh. Great service. Their skillet meal was tasty and not overwhelming. And when they recognized that they didn't ask if my husband wanted strawberries on his pancakes, they took them back and whipped up a fresh batch, not just scraped them... More

Arrived to a dirty table, lazy waitress "cleaned" the table with a sopping wet, dirty dish rag and left the table wet. Ordered eggs benny, done medium with fruit cup and a side of chunky style hashbrowns. One of the eggs was soft very soft and when I cut in to it, the yolk all went running in to the... More

Lovely renovated family restaurant. Kids meals available. Prices have steadily risen over the last couple of years. We always hope to get one of the older gals as our server as whenever we have a younger gal they give poor service as they prefer to chat with friends or be on their cell phones. Wide variety on the menu. Owner... More
