“Great place for breakfast - good food, good for family, good roadside food.”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

I am surprised to read the other reviews that are not positive. We stopped here for breakfast on our way from Calgary to Crawford Bay BC. Our party was three adults and four teens - we had a variety of items - oatmeal, burgers, eggs and bacon. The food was good overall and the service was good - very friendly. It is a good "road side" restaurant - you don't expect a culinary delight at a place like this; but as long as the food is fresh it is fine by me for this type of meal.

“Stopped here for lunch, what a mistake.”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

From the moment we sat down, it went downhill from there. The waitress asked what we wanted to drink we said water she took our order for soup and sandwich and never came back. We asked again for water, the it came with the soup, no sandwich, It finally came after asking it was cold, then we had to ask for napkins. Never came back again, to ask if everything was okay, of course not. This place needs help for food quality and especially the service. In a hurry, avoid this place.

“Consistently Very Good and have never had a miss.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We visit this Smitty's quite often for breakfast and it has always been very good. The staff in this restaurant are well trained and really excellent at their jobs there's a couple who have been there along time and you can tell by the efficiency.
Unfortunately as to the other meals we have not tried but am sure it would be as satisfying but don't know.
If you're looking for early breakfast in and out this is it.
