Smitty's DOES NOT honour the Smitty's national senior discount card. The Smitty website clearly states that all Smitty's restaurants across Canada will honour the 10% discount card, and the menu provided in the Sidney Smitty's restaurant also clearly states that the card will be honoured, yet the General Manager and Store Manager have refused to do so. Either Smitty's Canada... More

I was looking for a basic breakfast but got a big helping of attitude. They didn't get my order right but I was hungry and it was no big deal. I did let waitress know it was not correct but that it was OK (no need to take it back )and suddenly I was persona non grata. Coffee and water... More

food, although hot and fresh was pretty bland. and for value/cost very expensive for what you get. I had a Ceasar chicken wrap that may have had at the most ,2 strips of chicken, and some romaine lettuce. I should have got a chicken strip meal for less money with 5 fingers, Fries were hot but being so thin, became... More

We had breakfast here after staying at the Best Western before catching a flight at Victoria International. It is also convenient to BC Ferries at Swartz Bay. The food was good and prompt, the server pleasant. Price was reasonable. $26 for two incl. tip. I generally think of Smitty's as a breakfast restaurant but they have a full menu for... More

Small portions, high prices, expensive coffee. Breakfast for two was over $40 inc tip. Won't be back, actually just ate at "Timmies" across the road for our breakfast today. Thank goodness for Google.

The restaurant is clean, staff friendly. Our waitress was a bit inattentive in bringing coffee refills. I had the Western Skillet and my husband the Bacon Denver Omelette. We both enjoyed our breakfast. We had no complaints, enjoyed the food. Personally I have a hard time spending $30 for breakfast for 2 before tip. I would rather put the money... More

Because it was convenient for us since we were staying at the Best Western and we were offered a 25% discount, we ate here because we were familiar with the extensive breakfast menu that they offer that should have something to satisfy anyone. If you haven't eaten at a Smitty's before, it is very similar to IHOP or Denny's, known... More
