I ordered the regular breaded veal cutlet for dinner, with a side Ceasar salad. The salad dressing tasted like it came out of Kraft dressing bottle, the price for the side salad, (not included with a dinner) was $3.99. There were 2 pieces of meat on the plate, 1 was veal, the other I'm thinking was a very fat salisbury... More

Parking is in short supply and difficult to maneuver Tables are close together Good variety but most dishes rely on carbohydrates (bread/pasta/potatoes(fries)) A better option for breakfast. Alcohol is a bit expensive but this is the norm at BC restaurants. Non Alcoholic beer is not available.

I haven't been to a Smitty's in years because of bad experiences at one of their locations in Edmonton. But when out-of-town guests invited me to breakfast, this was their choice so I went along. Surprise! Each of us had a different meal and we all gave them a thumbs up. Since then, I've been back for evening meals 3... More

Great service with good food. Smittys are a franchise but the experience is greatly dependent on each operator/mgmt.

Shortly after 7 A.M. we dropped in for breakfast after going for a blood test and several people were already having theirs. Good food, friendly waitress. Can recommend it.

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...
