My husband and I went to Smitty's for what we thought would be a good breakfast. We were there by 9:00 a.m. and the place was not busy. I ordered the Seniors breakfast and my husband had the Senior Denver Omelet with pancakes. My egg was cold, my bacon was not done to my order and the hash browns were... More

Our favourite meal at Smitty's is breakfast. The servers keep bringing the coffee out and filling your mug and are always very cheerful and friendly! The food is okay and definitely plentiful. Also, Smitty's is great if you have a rushed schedule, as we didn't have to wait very long for our meals to arrive.

The breakfast here was not too bad, but the dinner was the worst. When the waitress brought my diet soda, I took one sip and sent it back for water. It was nasty. The food was bland and tasteless. During most of our meal someone was scrubbing the floor in a little area and it was a very loud brushing... More

Our family had dinner here and never again. The one waitress took a while to ask us if we wanted something to drink, and we noticed there was no smile on any of the servers faces. My mother-in-law ordered fish and chips, as well as myself and the coating was soggy and overcooked, as we both shared the meal. My... More

I was disappointed in their pancakes as they were tough. my husband's eggs were ordered over-medium and came out over-easy.

As I am leaving for an extended trip next week I decided to take my daughter and two granddaughters out for supper at Smiity's Restaurant, a place that we had always had good meals in the past. Sadly the evening supper 'treat' was not that at all. We had an order of Eggs Benedict; Clubhouse Sandwich; Chicken Burger and one... More

We ate twice at Smitty's a breakfast and a supper. For supper we both had their senior meal and we were both full and than they came with a small dessert that was included with the meal. We had a nice breakfast the next morning also. All the staff was very friendly and our waitress was very helpful and pleasant.... More

We ate here recently and would have to say that although the waitresses were decent, and the food itself was decent, that the portions were on the small side for the price paid. In comparison to say Denny's, IHOP or White Spot, their portion sizes here are much smaller although the price themselves were similar. I ordered the BIG breakfast... More
