Smittys is an old family tradition when traveling through Idaho Falls for fishing or camping trips. It's a quaint old place with excellent pancakes served with multiple flavors of syrup. Breakfast is served all day. They have a complete meal menu but we are partial to breakfast when we are indulging in this kind of nostalgia. It's family friendly. The... More

Long standing restaurant with excellent menu. Serves breakfast all day long. It is just a short walk from the falls on the river where Idaho Falls gets it's name. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful and the service is quick. Nice homey atmosphere appropriate for the family or a business lunch. Wide variety of menu selections to choose... More

Good breakfast of French toast and bacon. Typical family breakfast food menu. Service okay but not terrific. Had to ask for my check.

When traveling, I enjoyed going to locally owned places, as opposed to the familiar chains that you find in every other city. So going to Smitty's was just a natural thing for me. I thought it was cute& homey and my breakfast was just fine. Quality, service, and décor also met expectation.

This place had always been a favorite and getting breakfast there after a wonderful night at Destinations Inn made a great beginning of the next day.

My wife and I had excellent meals. I had a steak that was just right, good flavor and a baked potato that was one of the best ever. My wife had a taco salad that had more items included than she was used to. She raved about how good it was.

Happened across this place whilst walking the river trail and decided to give it a try. Big mistake! Service was terrible and we had to wait 35 minutes just for a sandwich. Decor was like your grandmothers parlour and had not been decorated in 40 years. Food was mediocre and definitely not worth the wait. Stay clear of this restaurant.

We've eaten lunch and breakfast at Smitty's. The food is well prepared. Somewhat average menu, but good value. It is clean and convenient to motels along the river. We chose to eat there rather than the stock motel breakfast. Eggs were done perfectly,

Service was friendly but a little slow given the number of empty tables. Wife tried the sour dough pancakes and was not impressed leaving 2/3 of her order. I had the potato pancakes which were OK but would have been better without the chives embedded in the batter. Coffee was hot but lacked richness.
