Ate there twice and got sick both times! The second time I had to go to the hospital. Can't believe I was dumb enough to go back the second time.

We have eaten here several times and are never disappointed...lots of menu choices which are all good, cold drinks, serve yourself soft drinks and tea. And of course, it is interesting to look at the props and articles the owner saved from the various movies filmed locally, which are numerous. In good weather, the outdoor seating is a great place...

What a great place flow the whole family! The entry is inviting and resembles a front porch. Inside the restaurant is not too big but very comfy. Several 4 tops and bar tables make choosing a table easy. The cashier at the front was friendly and very familial with the menu. The menu is printed on the wall and is... More

The Pocket Grille is one of the first restaurants one sees upon entering Smithville and it sets a great tone for the town. The menu is hearty and creative, the counter staff efficient and the restaurant well-managed. We're carb-free these days, so we were able to maintain that with a grilled chicken salad that tasted great. #ProTip: if you sit... More

After a full day of helping out on the Hidden Pines fire, a few of us decided to try this place out for dinner. We went about 8 pm, place was almost empty, but the service was good. I had the chicken tenders and fries, all was almost too hot to eat, which was a good thing. The only negative... More
