Think "Cheers" Midwest, on Ground Floor...

Local neighborhood pub holds up well against "chains." More than the usual choices of salads plus the usual pub fare and a few items thrown in for variety (they work). Salads are good and generous but sandwiches are the star of the menu (esp. the steak sandwich). Food is generally very good and... read more

this is my favorite neighborhood restaurant. I go there whenever I'm back in town. The food is excellent and the good service is friendly and consistent.

I took a friend to lunch at Smee's today at her request. She had a Santa Fe salad which was reasonably good- although using the large strips of unseasoned tortilla isn't particularly good. They used to do this differently- something you could actually put on your fork and that added flavor- not just crunch- to the salad. Anyway, she liked... More

A great place to sit and have a drink. The food is okay. The service is fast and friendly. Never had a long wait to get a table. Fabulous carrot cake.

Went to lunch with my co-worker and daughter. Waitress, Lisa, very unfriendly and did not ask if food was okay, did not ask if we wanted refills on drinks. Did not ask if we wanted deserts. We did not tip as felt as though service was not even close to being satisfactory. I gave her two credit - gift cards... More

This place is one of our favorites for a casual dinner. The food is better than the usual bar food with daily specials on entrees, soup and drinks. We enjoy the sandwiches, and my favorite is the turkey on wheat bread with cranberry relish. The entrees are a little more than we need so we normally order a burger, tenderloin,... More

I took my large group of out of town business partners here based on a referral. I am never been more embarrassed. What a horrible experience! The appetizers arrived with our meal. When she had dropped off all but one of our plates, she dusted her hands and said down with this table. Only she wasn't... We waited a long... More

I met a friend for lunch and was not disappointed. They had many options to choose from. I ended up with a Santa Fee Wrap and fresh green beans as a side. The wrap had a lot of flavor and the beans were cooked just right. I took 1/2 of the wrap and about 1/4 of the beans home for... More

We love that Smee's has a smaller, 'neighborhood pub' feel to it, and we love that it is locally owned. We enjoy sitting at the bar, partaking of the good drink specials. The food is OK, definitely room for improvement. Although the last time we were there I ordered the breaded tenderloin, and would definitely order it again. Yum!
