Smiler's make you feel at home. The food is always cooked the way you want. Servers are very friendly and always smiling. Try the turkey burgers and grilled cheese. One of my favorites is the capiletti soup with spinach! Even in the summer, it hits the spot. You won't be disappointed!

We come here once a year when we are in the area for a family reunion and it is one of the highlights of our trip. The staff is fantastic, the food is always good and the beer is cold. The waitresses truly are exceptional and they always have something a little bit different on the menu that takes it... More

Nice watering hole. Friendly staff owner is very outgoing. Food is not excellent but good. Not fine dining but a nice place to kick back with friends and family

Once again, the food, ambience, and SERVICE was amazing. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this establishment for any business venue. Serene and June were, ARE, the epitome of great servers.

This is a small, fun place to dine. We seemed to be the only out-of-towners in the place. Little neck clams were delicious as was the sesame crusted tuna. Pierogis with butter and caramelized onions were delicious and filling. There were three of them and they were quite large and very tasty. Don't pass them up. You can feel at... More

I chose Smiler's for our group solely because of the reviews on tripadvisor... Not disappointed!!! The ambience was great- a nice, small-town feel. The food, specifically the steamed clams, was phenomenal. The New York Strip was cooked perfectly, and the sides were top notch. I highly, highly recommend Smiler's, for both business and pleasure!

My wife & I dropped in to have supper on a Wednesday night around 6pm. The bar area was pretty busy, but the dining area in the rear only had a couple tables taken. I must say, we both loved our Chicken Caesar Salads. The portions were fair along with the price & most of all, the service was great.... More

Our Microtel desk clerk recommended this place, and we were glad they did -- only it was a longer 3-block walk from the hotel than we anticipated. However, it was well worth the walk. The front bar/seating area was pretty crowded and noisy in a fun way, but we opted for a quieter table in the back room. It seems... More
