It was okay as I was starved and travelling by myself. Would not recommend it for great food but it did take the grumbling pains away. I did enjoy the lady looking after me as she was very personal and loved to ski and it was clear she loved FErnie.

Waited 20 minutes to be seated. Found paper towel in my omelette. Owner gave me 20% off my omelette rather than not charging me for food I obviously didn't finish. I'm a local and will not be eating here anymore.

When you come to Smitty's you know what you are going to get, dated decor, burgers, breakfast, etc. TIP: if you pay with the machine & tip by %, you will tip on the total amount (including taxes!) huge pet peeve of mine!

Had a late lunch here on Friday and the place was empty. We both ended up ordering the same item, Fish & Chips. I know it's not a highend restaurant and it's a franchise but boy the fish was inside a huge hunk of batter that was thoroughly cooked and very greasy. (Should have known better) What was most annoying... More

We needed a place to accommodate 8 golfers for breakfast. The staff was excellent and they made sure we were in and out in good time. Nothing fancy but enough variety to satisfy a large group.

We had just entered Canada and found this to be the first restaurant we came to in our travels. What a mistake to eat here!! The service was painfully slow, the price for two breakfast meals was almost $30.00, and the food was AWFUL! Customers seated all around us got their food with heaping plates of delicious-looking items. I ordered... More

The restaurant was recommended by locals and I was very happy with my breakfast experience. Erica was friendly and efficient. The food was cooked exactly the way that I ordered it. Whenever I will return to Fernie I know where I'll have breakfast!

We are visiting in Fernie for a few days and stopped in to Smitty's for breakfast. We had a a fairly standard bacon and eggs breakfast. Found the restaurant to be typical of most Smitty's though a bit smaller than average. It was clean, service was quick and friendly and the food was good.

I am not a hard person to please. We had breakfast there and I had the oatmeal. Brown sugar came with it but It was mixed in already. Okay, no worries- I asked for more. It took her awhile to come back and when she did, she had extremely hard "brown sugar". It was clumped together like extremely old brown... More
