“New Decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Have you been in the redecorated Smitty's yet? We have and it is very attractive and cozy. The dividers they added give you more privacy. The food is still as healthy as ever. My husband tried the potato pancakes and found them to be pretty bland. We felt the shredded potatoes should have been cooked before going into batter. They appeared to be brown on the outside of the pancake and uncooked towards the middle plus they need to be served with syrup instead of apple sauce or sour cream. Other than that the coffee is great and the service is fast and efficient. This restaurant appears to be serving health conscious food. They also have a Seniors Menu which is a wonderful idea as it gives you the same delicious food, but smaller portions. A plus for us seniors. Nice relaxing place to get a good breakfast.

“Good place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Had breakfast here the other day as part of our shutting down for the holiday season. Food was very good, service was good and the overall experience was very good. We visit here a few times a year. The portion sizes are big enough to satisfy the biggest appetite. We were 20 in our group and the staff had no problem keeping up with us.

“Just ok at Smitty's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Slow and couldn't get orders correct. There was no telling how you where going to get your eggs! Food was ok once we returned half our orders from a table of 12.

“Funny how some places never change”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is one of those places that does not change. This location is close to my mother-in-laws so it is easy to stop in for breakfast when we want to take her out. The place needs a big make over as things are showing their age. The staff is what you expect if you go to a Smitty's anyplace and the food is decent road side food. The pancakes are good!

“Ok but not much more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We used to eat at Smitty's with both our sons and their girlfriends/children fairly often. The place hasn't changed much over the years. Regular family fare (pancakes, omelette, waffles, sausages, eggs, etc.) at not outrageous prices.
