My wife & I used to love going to Smitty's but lately it has been going downhill. Our visit this time was again disapointing as was our last few visits. Our server on this last visit was friendly although not very good at her job....More

This was a very disappointing meal. Service was alright. Coffee was dreadful. Food was very mediocre and in all the Smitty's I have eaten these were the worst pancakes I have ever been served. We would not visit this establishment again.

I happened to drop in here on Seniors' night, and got a free soup and free dessert. Both were great. The fish and chips were very good and. although the servers were all very young, there did a great job. I'd stop here again.

My girlfriend and I try to go to Smitty's about once a month to have their Liver and Onions, which we really enjoy. The cost is very reasonable too. They have a big breakfast menu that I have tried in the past, very nice too.
