Terribly serve had to track down the waitress to get our cold okra.The waitress gave us sweet tea when we asked for unsweet tea and said that the containers were mixed up how could that happen. Just simply terrible.

We were there at 11:30 a.m. and were seated immediately. Waitress Tina mentioned that the staff makes a point to get people in and out quickly, as they know diners are there on a limited lunch period. She brought our drinks immediately, took our order, and was back with our food before we hardly had time to blink. I'm sure... More

Let's just say that I wasn't expecting one of the best meals I had ever ate to be off the beaten path in Panama City. I went to Panama City Beach with my mom to attend a meeting at her timeshare and she suggested we go to a little barbecue place in town. I was one of the best eating... More

We were leaving Panama City, Florida. My husband spotted a restaurant that I have mentioned repeatedly for their Monterary Jack Cheese Sticks, Chicken and White Chicken Sauce. In our day to day life, I eat 5% meat protein. I adore nuts, veggies and fruit. Smitty's has a good salad bar. It always has been very good. Yet, this is not... More

We stop in every year on our way home from PCB. We have always had great service and excellent meals. The owner is very personable as he spoke with us and was glad to know we visited even if it was only once a year.

We stopped at Smitty's on a whim, hankering for some good old BBQ. The restaurant is decorated, perhaps excessively so, with model airplanes hanging from the ceiling and the walls covered with flying related memorabilia. The ceiling, by the way, had a few water stains and the entire restaurant could use a cleaning and a coat of paint. We were... More

I had the ribs, corn on the cob and fries. Seating was prompt....the order was taken in a timely way. Service through the meal was good and very friendly. The overall impression was it was about average as barbecue goes but was among some of the best in this area. The area just isn't really big for barbecue.

Our first and only visit to this place. I am a restaurant manager and my experience with this Large Wanna Be Intimidating Black Man was completely under part for what the service industry should be providing. The situation was me thinking wrongly that I could take some food home from the all you can eat. I understand the part that... More

Good food at reasonable price and located close to hotel. Have eaten there before as well and food is always good. Good size for price you pay.
