I have eaten here many times. My favorite meal here is breakfast. I love the potato pancakes. You won't find anything like them anywhere else.

After an all night drive we stopped at Smittys for breakfast based on many rave reviews.They had a seasonal menu of drinks which looked amazing and we tried the apple cider and pumpkin chocolate mocha. The mocha was decent and the cider tasted like watered down apple juice. In all fairness, we ordered omelettes in lieu of pancakes (which seem... More

A few years ago we stopped by here and loved it. We were traveling through again so stopped for lunch and some of us had lunch and some breakfast. It just was not the same and the service was ok but not great. I don't know if I would give it another try because of that. Our friends actually said... More

It's been around a long time, and it is very popular - but I feel like it's just "meh". We did have a fun server - and the coffee was good! Food was decent - but again, nothing spectacular. Usually a line to get in on the weekends - but I wonder if it's more because of tradition, not food?... More

People in Idaho Falls have voted Smittys the best breakfast restaurant for several straight years. All of their meals are a excellent and resonably priced. I think my favorite is the strawberry roll ups. I have never had anything served that wasn't just excellent. Service is top notch.

Yummy! Classic favorites, always delicious. Fast, friendly efficient service in a hometown atmosphere. Right across from the IF Green Belt at the Falls.

We ate breakfast at Smitty's while staying in Idaho Falls on Vacation. This is a relatively large restaurant (for a pancake house) with two dining rooms. The staff was friendly, efficient, and quick. Our wait person checked back frequently to be sure we had coffee and water and that our food was satisfactory. The breakfast food was tasty and hot.... More

We chose to have a Sunday breakfast here before heading to the hills to check out the fall colors. I grew up in Idaho Falls and this place was a staple. I remember the food being very good, with good sized portions and consistent quality. Today was different, and not in a good way. The place was busy, but not... More

If you want the best breakfast in Idaho Falls this place is it. The breakfast is hardy and not for the faint of heart. The hash browns were great! Eggs over easy were wonderful!
