Idaho Falls classic

If you want to eat breakfast at a local classic, you should do it here. They really do have some great food options and I can eat the same menu items I ate when I was a kid. There are certainly better places to eat but Smitty's does have a certain nostalgic flair about it.

We had breakfast at this location. It was the first time we have eaten at this restaurant and it was a nice surprise. The inside was awesome and the server was outstanding. The food was very good. We will be back in the future when we are traveling through the area.

Smitty's is a very short walk to see the snake river. This well established diner is where you want to go if you want a feel for the locals... who were very nice to us by the way. The regular customer seated next to us has us some good advice on our travel destination... Yellowstone. The old-er-ish lady was so... More

While the hotel we were staying at offered a continental breakfast, we chose to eat out. Smitty's was recommended. There is ALWAYS a wait here - there was never a "down" time when we were here. The hostess was very pleasant. We had asked for a booth, and after a time, she came over to check w/us - as a... More

There is a reason Smitty's has been in business for so long. Good food and good service. Great egg breakfast and great pancakes. You can walk to the falls after breakfast

The staff was friendly and attentive. A sweet family run restaurant with good food. Four flavors of syrup for the pancakes should be satisfying to anyone.

Waited 10 minutes to be seated and the restaurant wasn't busy - hostess was MIA - sat at table by kitchen - no sliver wear - slow slow slow service -- omelet was okay - hash browns were not good -- no refill on water -- Checkout cashier seemed stressed out -- probably won't go back!

I have eaten here many times. The food is consistently great and the service is consistently bad. Breakfast was served hot and good portions - great flavor. Waitress never came back out the food was served - water glasses were never refilled. Come for the food but don't expect any service.

During our travels west, on our honeymoon, we had to stop for an oil change. We walked along Broadway and took pictures at the river looking for a place to eat. We went to Smitty's Pancake and Steak House, and were pleasantly surprised. I had the chopped steak with potato pancakes, which were delicious. My husband had the Swiss, turkey,... More
