Weekly visit

Lately, my son, grandson, and I have been meeting here on a weekly basis. Neither my son and I live in Fond du Lac, but the restaurant is very convenient for both of us to meet. Food is good and; service is great. We intend to do this for some time to come.

While I have heard many locals rave about this place the two times I was there I did not find that the case. The first time I had their famous fish fry. I found it greasy and the breading was not crisp. The second time I had a burger which was average but the service was poor. I would not... More

One of the better pub and casual meal places in Fond du Lac. The burgers are very well made with fresh ground beef and excellent toppings. The Cacti burger is especially recommended. The chicken sandwiches are juicy and well-seasoned. I especially like their Buffalo Chicken sandwich. Their onion rings are hot and crispy. Their Gyros are also very authentic and... More

The food was average, the service great and the ambiance was comfortable. It is the perfect place to go for a spur of the moment restaurant experience.

Pizza, sandwiches, wings and fish fry all great choices. I love the chicken focaccia and Reuben sandwiches. The pizza is very good but only served at certain times/days. The restaurant can be busy on their half price pizza nights so there is sometimes a wait if you are ordering pizza.

We stopped in for a quick meal and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It was our first dining experience in Wisconsin. The cheese curds were great!!

We stopped in Fond Du Lac on the way to Door County, and looked for a restaurant that could offer local flare-Smitty's fit the bill! The food was really delicious - my Rueben sandwich was as good as any I have had in New York City - and the wings were great. Casual dining with a neighborhood bar feel. Surprisingly... More

The cheese curds are the best in the county. The calzone was good too. Not a lot of atmosphere. The local yocals sit around the bar so may be not a good place for the kids.

Out with friends. Have eaten at schmittys many times, food not always the best, but the group seems to like it there. Food last night was very good. One person ordered the fish, I wish I had ordered that as it looked great. I have been bitten more times than not with bad fish at this restaurant. Will try it... More
