We left Edmonton early and drove to Edson before we had breakfast. I was quite hungry by that point and was really pleased with the speed of the service. We both ordered the breakfast special which included eggs, bacon, sausages a choice of toast or pancakes plus juice. This all for $10. The restaurant is large and fairly clean.

Very typical Smitty's. Good Wednesday night prime rib special (I didn't have it, but many others did). Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere to visit, food was quick and service with a smile :)

Saw several cars parked here so decided to try this place. We had the senior Salisbury steak dinners and they were delicious. The veggie was a mix of broccoli, cauliflower, squash, carrots, etc. which my hubby does not like so they graciously substituted sliced tomato for him.

We stopped for lunch on our way through to Jasper. The restaurant was very nice and clean and the staff were lovely. We had the hot turkey sandwich and the turkey dinner. Both were very tasty. The veges were probably frozen, which is fine, but they were a little dry and overcooked. The turkey was lovely and so was the... More

I was looking for a place to have lunch today, as I was driving by, I noticed the parking lot was full, so I thought their must be good food. I was seated right away, the staff are very freindly, the place was large and lots of seating. The beef barley soup was good, but the Canadian Burger was average.... More

I tried to like them I really do but there service flips and flops too much sometimes it's good but mostly it's bad, I live in Edson and this is one of the worst places to order half of the time they don't even bother to answer the phone and most of the time they don't even get the order... More

As we come from Edmonton, and the points program is honoured for all the Smittys in our city, we assumed it would be honoured in Edson. NOT TRUE. they offered us a Diners points... More

After a long trip, myself and my son stopped at smittys for lunch. First time in the establishment. Our server Sam was the best server i have ever had. Food was delicious.

Food came quickly. I had chicken taco salad, and my co-workers had the mac and cheese. The meals were excellent. Service was efficient and friendly.
