“Surprisingly delicious snapper!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This place looks like a backyard bbq place for decent burgers and cold beer, however the grilled snapper and steamed veggies I ordered was amazing. Just a simple garlic marinade, perfectly cooked, even the patacones had a unique seasoning.

“Reasonable prices, good pastas”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We liked Smileys so much we ate there both nights while in town. Their pastas are excellent and generous portions. The Smiley's pork sandwich was good but not great and hence the very good over all review. Very friendly and quick service. Live music (locals jamming) Tuesday and Friday nights. Reasonable prices.

Good food and drinks at a reasonable value. Live music on the weekends and NFL channel during football season! Good pasta specials and love the flan.
