Loved the broasted chicken!

Had dinner here on August 22nd. My husband and I both had the broasted chicken! It was delicious as were the onion rings we started out with. Our server was very good also.

"Special" Sesame wings had absolutely no sesame or other flavor, just broasted and covered in a bland oil (not sesame oil). Burger was dry (Ordered it medium). Both ketchup and mustard containers still had the foil seal on them. Fries crispy. Many signs and posters for Yuengling beer, but not listed on the menu or beer list. Both need to... More

Just held my husbands 40th Anniversary at Smartys. Niantic is where he was born and mom was in Morton hotel when she went into labor. The staff is amazingly friendly and accommodate my price, dietary needs, and random requests. The broasted chicken is my favorite as well they made a great vegan pasta dish for us. Thank you to everyone... More

Could Be Better... Just a Watering Hole located in the center of town. Food is avg at best. Service is avg. at best... could be a real gem but misses on all marks. Better places to use your money. Sorry old Morton House.

On celebrate East Lyme Day we decided to stop in for some live music and seafood. My friend whom I was dining with got her salad that had 2 bugs in the bottom of it. She told the waitress and we were confused that she waitress did not seem surprised or overly apologetic. She ordered a clam chowder instead which... More

Always loved the broasted chicken at Smarty's (and my husband loves the chili, pulled pork nachos, etc.). Went here recently. He still loved his nachos, and the desserts were still great. I found the chicken (exactly as someone else said) tasted as if the oil hadn;t been changed in a while. The mashed potatoes tasted like a baked potato that... More
