“Was our Favorite place in Smithville”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

This was our favorite place to eat when we visit Smithville Village.And we go the a few times a year.But this time is was not to good.And they were not to busy,It was dinner time.And our waitress was not good at all,very slow,and not to friendly.It took a long time to get our food.Each food portion was barely warm,the soups have changed too.The bar was very busy.Iam wandering if its new management or poor staff working there that nite.We were going to go back again before New Years,but we will eat somewhere else in Smithville.

“lunch at Fred and Ethel's”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Food is delicious and you get huge proportions, but it is a little pricey. Knowing this ahead of time, we still chose Fred and Ethel's. The staff is very friendly and very accommodating.

“Good food, good prices, average service”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Had dinner here with my family. The food was good, solid American-style food - nachos were well put together, and my burger was tasty. Prices are good. Service could have been a little bit better - our waitress wasn't very friendly.

“Great Food.. Great Atmosphere.. Great Prices”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

On Tuesdays, Fred and Ethel's offers a $10 dinner. You get soup and salad, an entree from a selected menu plus dessert. I had the steak which was tender and delicious, and for the price, it was a generous 6 ounce portion. It came with garlic mashed potatoes and delicious grilled vegetables, and with bread pudding as a dessert option we were thrilled. After dinner you can stroll around the Smithville grounds and enjoy the scenery. Highly recommend Fred & Ethels!
