My husband doesn't like the Marriot included hotel breakfasts and this place was right next door. It's a locally owned place that is very popular and definitely fit the bill. We'd rate it even a cut above Ihop, one of our favorite breakfast chains.

The place was packed on a Saturday morning. Lots of locals. Excellent pancakes and great service. Try the apricot syrup. Great place to bring the family for a hot breakfast.

The food here is amazing, but you have to get the breakfast. Pancakes are amazing along with the German pancakes, don't love the omlettes but everything else on the breakfast menu is superb. The service sadly has gone down over the years and some of the women are extremely rude but just ignore them if you get a bad one... More

Good food. The hubby got the French Toast which was really super good. I wanted to try the sourdough pancakes but was too nervous so I went with the regular ones. The OJ was good which is saying a lot coming from me. This place gets busy Sunday mornings so go early.

We ate here twice during our stay in Idaho Falls - it was convenient to the hotel. The food tasty good and looked appetizing,. The restaurant was clean and the Early American décor was a nice throw-back. Our servers were pleasant and efficient. However, there were several ice cubes on the floor near a work station and the 2 servers... More

My husband has been coming here for forty years. We shared Swedish pancakes and an omelette today, our kids ate the cheese pizza and could have eaten another one. We loved every bit of it! Their syrups are so delicious, we dipped our toast in them. Yummy hash browns too. Fun story behind the restaurant. Friendly and helpful waitresses too.

The breakfast menu is amazing. Little pots of tea and great food. On the weekends it is a bit of a wait but worth it.

Smittys was probably one of the first places we went to when moving from California. The food is always good I like the fried chicken. and it is one of the best breakfast places in town. The first time I ever had sourdough pancakes was at Smittys.The service is great. Nice family restaurant.

Smitty's is a nice old fashioned café/restaurant. Good traditional American menu items. Serve breakfast all day. You have some other choices like this in town, North Hi-Way Café (good), Mitchell's (good), Me-n-Stan's (Rigby- great) and BA's Country Kitchen (horrible!). But Smitty's and Me-n-Stan's are by far the best for this type of place. I would go to Hi-Way and Mitchell's... More
