On the evening of 1st September I was really pleased to invite my daughter and 2 lovely granddaughters out for dinner, we chose to go to the local Smitty's in Parksville B.C.,, a long time favourite and often visited place to eat. After being seated we placed our orders and waited for our anticipated meal, when our chosen dishes arrived... More

We were reluctant to eat here but were pleasantly surprised. Good basic food at decent prices. The staff were great and on the ball. No long waits for your food or coffee refills. Worth taking the whole family to for any meal of the day.

Id been here before, it was fairly good so when back in the area figured it was a safe bet. Boy was i wrong. One member of our trio was on crutches and couldn't walk well, however they put us in the most awkward table, instead of out the way where crutches wouldn't get in the way. but whatever, this...

For some reason all the other restaurants we had wanted to go to was closed on Sunday for lunch, so we ended up at Smitty's. Service was pretty quick, and food came out quickly even though it was busy. Beef dip was good, fries were a bit cold. Club house eggs benny was a little disappointing, turkey was dry but... More

Have tried other Smitty's Restaurants in Canada, and this one is most likely the best service I've had. The staff is friendly, professional, and know how to provide good restaurant service. The menu is varied and had Canadian/American fare. Prices for lunch are comparable to other restaurants in the area.

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
