Great food and service!

My family and I went to Smitty's because it is conveniently located next to our hotel. It was a great choice for lunch. The food was very tasty, there is plenty of choices and the breakfast options are just as great. The fresh clam chowder and homestyle fried chicken were fantastic. The kids also... read more

You have to try the German pancakes! End of story! This is one of the last great American coffee shops. Keep it going. Love this place.

We were meeting family in town and were looking for a location that could seat a table for 12. We were there at 9 am, peak time. Our Server, Linda, was experienced, professional, and very helpful. Not only do they have traditional style pancakes but also German and Swedish varieties as well. We had a great time, excellent food and... More

I have eaten at Smittys since the mid 70's but I usually eat only breakfasts there so I can't comment on later meals. I am a pancake aficionado and finding a restaurant that makes pancakes from scratch is difficult and Smitty still makes real food from basic ingredients and so keep in mind that slow food takes longer. If you... More

This restaurant served a lot of food and was good. The atmosphere was like an "old" coffee shop. The employees looked and acted "rough" but they did serve a good meal.

I enjoy finding little mom-n-pop operated businesses when traveling. Smitty's is a real gem. The food is prepared from scratch and served with a smile and friendly conversation. We asked the waitress and fellow diners for suggestions and everyone gave us something different. Basically, you can't go wrong with anything you order at Smitty's. The portion sizes are plentiful too.... More

Smittys is a good breakfast place in a town that doesn't seem to have many great options for breakfast. The food was all good - not the best we've ever had - but it took way too long to get. We were fine with the 20 minute wait to get a table. It was probably actually only 10-15 minutes; but... More

My favorite is the turkey pot pie with a salad. Their coffee is excellent and they keep your cup full. My husband will always have ham and eggs no matter what time of the day it is. Great family-home-owned restaurant!

You can't go wrong at Smitty's. I travel nation wide every week and still look forward to having breakfast here on the weekends.
