We were in the area and decided to come here. I grew up visiting Al’s Restaurant and have not been to Harbor Beach since it burned down. This place had great food, great service and is a great replacement

The food here was very good. What impressed my family the most was the amazing service. There was only one waitress for the whole bar, but she attended everyone with a smile & made sure that everything was going well. She knew many of the...patrons, and yet treated everyone equally. I look forward to returning again.More

We stopped here for the first time for lunch. They have good burgers, fries and quesadilla. The water was horrible, and the coffee was dreadful, but the food was very good.

We come to town 3/4 times a week from 18 miles away. We always ask each other... “ do we go to Smally’s before or after shopping? A wonderful local restaurant and bar with the best food. Never had a bad meal day here. Treat...yourself to a great experience. CaptainMore

This review's title was once to be the title of the Humphrey Bogart movie Casablanca. That is what I thought sitting awaiting dinner. The front door was swinging non-stop after my wife and I arrived after a long drive to this welcomed stop. Smally's is...the town's watering hole. Music, friendly, and a younger (compared to my wife and me) crowd. The music was entertaining, the waitress, pretty, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive, and the crowd in good spirits. A good selection of spirits at the bar (I had an Edmond Fitzgerald which was very good) and a better than anticipated menu. I had a Reuben. I would not mind returning and spending more time. Easy downtown parking.More

My best friend and I went to Smally's Bar and Grill as per a local man's recommendation from the night prior. One of the employees from Smally's was standing in front of us in line at a store in town and they both knew each...other, He jokingly said that was why he recommended the place, although he was actually very serious. He said the Grilled Chicken Quinoa Bowl was excellent and that the burgers were so huge that his friend could barely take a bite out of one when they ate there. The next evening, we went to Smally's for dinner. My friend had the Grilled Chicken Quinoa Bowl and I had Pasta Amelia (grilled chicken with pasta and tomatoes in a wine sauce dish). The meals were very, very good and plentiful. Our waitress, Denise, was just wonderful! She was extremely efficient and had a great sense of humor. I hope to visit Smally's again in the future!More

Small town bar with a food attitude Has the best burgers. Anything on the menu is good. The food is fresh and served by a very friendly wait staff. So if you sped thru town you'll probably miss this place, and that would be a...mistake.More

Exploratory trip to this area of the hand. Stopped here for refueling our body. Local bar with that definite local feeling. However the food was not ordinary. Had 3 appetizers, fried pickles, fried green beans and pretzel. All were excellent and large portions. Chicken fingers...were very good and so was the chicken salad. I had an open face steak sandwich and besides it being a full New York strip it had excellent flavor and cooked just right for me, rare. Service was quick and very friendly. Waitress was helpful not only on menu choices but on things to see in area. Definitely worth going to again.More

Smalley’s is a gem in a small town. Superb friendly service staff with great food. It is not a fancy restaurant but the food is good. We will definitely stop back again.

Had lunch and the steak sandwich was good and priced reasonably The fried Perch sandwich had numerous bones and bland, which was very disappointing. Fries and coleslaw were good. Filled with locals and service was a bit slow. Would not return.

Best selection of Beers in Four Counties, Hamburgers out of history, and starters and entrees which defy expectation. Great Kid's menu, fully stocked Bar and good wine selection. All of this is wonderfully affordable.

This place is very deceiving from the outside. Has a very long bar with lots of seating and remaining dining area is quite spacious with lots of tables tables well spaced out. This place is clean and service was friendly, attentive and quick. This is...a place the locals go. Smalley's has a nice selection of draft beers, including a number of popular Michigan craft beers. Burgers (fresh Angus beef, not frozen) and salads are excellent. This is one of the few remaining places in town to get a good meal.More
