This place has some of the best chicken fingers you can find in the entire area. Great flavor, and a very nice (large) ratio of white meat chicken to breading. The attached photo hopefully shows the large hunks of chicken -- and not the thinly sliced and heavily breaded fingers that many other places serve! I have ordered the buffalo... More

After a full morning of shopping, my wife and I stopped in for lunch today. There was no one at the door to seat us, in fact some older guy in an old t-shirt (no badge or ID) said it was ok to find our own table/ didn't say hi either. It was about 3/5 full and we picked a... More

We have been going to Smitty's since it opened more than 25 years ago. It has been our "go-to" place forever, it seems. Sadly, that's no longer the case. Overthe years we have seen it slowly deteriorate, and we've gone from making weekly visits to making only yearly ones. We just made this year's annual visit last Saturday and WOW,... More

My friends and I are regulars who enjoy the house band Randy Lee Ashcraft. Since the influx of new eating places around Smittys the we have all witnessed the fall of service and food over the past several years. For instance on my friends and I shared nachos on our last visit. The seving is smaller, the absolute cheapest chips... More

Smitty's has been a family fav for years...kinda like a chain restaurant...you know what you will be getting time after time. Better than average bar food. Service could be better on some days. Football Sundays are excellent with NFL Sunday pass showing, the place is usually rocking.

This is a nice restaurant to go to, and the service is fast and the food is great, and I recommend this restaurant to families with children or a date or a solo visit. They really do have great food.

We went in for lunch at opening time...tables were very dirty. Asked the waitress to clean our table and she developed an instant attitude that carried through the entire visit. She paid us back by hanging out with the other staff instead of giving us good service. We watched her carry our soup around the kitchen for several minutes before... More

This is our late night, off-season go-to. Staff is friendly and/or witty, but I wish there were more healthy offerings on the menu (besides a salad loaded with high-fat ingredients). Husband loves the crabby tots/fries and the burgers are quite good.

We went here for dinner with a party of 5 at 6:30pm on a Friday night. Got a table after waiting 20 minutes (not bad) but all the tables are squeezed in so tightly that it's impossible to get in/out of your seat or even sit comfortably at the table because the people at the adjacent tables are bumping into...

Unfriendly staff served our family the other night yet I tried it solo tonight and got the same attitude from the bartenders. They had our waitress busy cleaning restrooms and not attending to us. She never came back to check on us. The bartender tonight never smiled and tossed my over cooked wings to me and never checked either. Wings... More
