Just your usual Smitty's ... but we have been here for a couple of breakfasts. they have been very accommodating in changing the specials up a bit (pancakes instead of french toast).

The service here was rather slow. The restaurant wasn't that busy and the waitress disappeared for long stretches so getting a coffee refill or anything else took longer than it should have. The food was ok and the prices were reasonable.

I went to Smitty's with my wife last month and I thought it was delicious. I have never tasted better breakfast food in my life, besides at home. My wife ordered the pancakes and I ordered a custom toasted sandwich. That's another pro of the restaurant. It allows you to create your own custom breakfast with different ingredients and combinations.... More

Food is average to very good, service is attentive and parking is easy to find. The lunch specials and soup are worth a try. Meals generally are served in generous portions. I found getting a refill on coffee slow.

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.
