Breakfast served anytime!

Good comfort food at reasonable prices. Closes at 8 pm on Sundays but they were very accommodating when we walked in 20 minutes before closing. Multigrain pancakes are delicious!!

This is a mainstay in it's same location for years. Food is consistent and average. The place is clean and the staff are very good. There are two in particular who go out of their way to be helpful.

This Smitty's is a good place for breakfast & lunch, even dinner with a family. Well-kept & friendly staff. All the usual pancakes/waffles, etc. with an extensive menu for all meals. Seniors' menu. Good location. Watch the traffic go by, especially during annual PA Toy Run! Not classy, but good, wholesome food.

We were craving some pancake and Belgian waffle and we found the perfect place in this small town in Port Alberni. We are family of 4 with 10yds and 13yrs old children. Food was great and service was good too.

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
