My family ate there today 11/9/13 around 1pm. Our server was very nice but too many people standing around staring. We watched a couple stand at front door for 13 minutes while servers saw them. There were maybe 4 people eating in there. The couple finally left. IT MADE ME VERY SAD because that would had NEVER happened with Jack... More

I can't say much about the dining experience here other than it was less than memorable. I had the Brunswick Stew, which didn't exactly wow me. I'm not even convinced it was homemade. My dining partner had a barbeque something or other and salad bar. He said the barbeque was just so so. The salad bar had a good selection,... More

I ordered the all you can eat chicken and it made it to the table in a timely manner. However a different server immediately brought my ticket and asked me to pay and I hadn't even finished the plate I was originally served. Now mind you can, this is 2p.m. and only 10 customers in the restaurant.I did talk to... More

I have to agree, with the previous review. However, I think Smitty's just changed management. Our family was there during the Holidays, food was delightful, service was very good, and the manager, at that time was very helpful. We went back, in April, it was horrible and the management had changed. We won't be back either.

When you pull in the parking lot at 6 P.M. and there are 5 cars in the parking lot I should have known. This restaurant is at one of the busiest intersections in town and across from the Mall. Where are the customers? Took for ever to be seated. Can't stand for the waitress call me baby. I am almost... More

If you love BBQ this this is the place to go in Panama City. My family and I were just there in March 2013. We all ordered something different off the menu and everything was fantastic. One reason we all love it is because they offer nightly specials of all you can eat and its a lot of food. So... More

I just left Smitty's and I can still smell the bbq flavor from the hickory smoked chicken. Great service from Dee. I ordered the smoked chicken half with a salad and baked beans. Very yummy.The inside is decorated with planes hanging from the ceiling and typical bbq atmosphere. Seating is casual with wood benches and tables. Just the way I... More

From the beginning Smitty's served delicious bar-b-cue.... plus the great salad bar! To top it off, the original owner Jack Smith, offered wit to be remembered on his outside sign! Love this place and the memories.

This is a great place for southern barbeque. Everything is priced very reasonable. You are sure to get a great meal at a great price. The menu is primarily barbeque fare but there are things like chicken strips and hamburgers available too. Great salad bar. Nice place for casual dining.
