Good location. Watch the traffic go by, especially during annual PA Toy Run! Not classy, but good... read more

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

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
