Visited this establishment due to the good reviews, could not have been more disappointed. Did not rate the food at all. Nothing appears to be fresh, all precooked and out of jars and I thought expensive for what it was.

Just popped into Smith's Diner for our tea yesterday, first time in new restaurant. Absolutely delicious meal, taco chips were to die for, milkshakes were divine, really friendly staff and great service. Place was full on a Tuesday evening and I am not surprised. Try it out if you are in Cavan Town, you won't be disappointed!!

I regularly visit Smiths Diner for lunch. It has a great selection for lunch on the menu with my personal favourite being the delicious range of salads. The service is usually pretty quick and prices are reasonable. I would recommend it for sit in lunch

Had the burger here. It was really good. Ordered it with whole wheat bun but they didn't have one so they offered to go to the store to get it. Super service. Can't complain about anything here. Will be going back next time I am in Cavan.

I passed through Cavan recently from Dundalk on my way to Roscommon. I had my two children with me so I was looking for a place to eat that was clean, child friendly and easy to park at. I came across Smiths Diner & Takeaway and thought this might be good. When we went inside the décor and layout was... More
