“Watch what you order”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

I've been to this smittys a few times and have never been overly satisfied; some of the breakfasts I ordered tasted alright but when I went there for dinner once I had quesadilla that was honestly the worst food I've ever had at a restaurant . The cheese was on top of the quesadilla instead of inside, inside was oversized raw greened tomatoes with what I thought was old ground beef but according to the waitress was bacon, I didn't think it was possible to screw up a quesadilla,at least the waitress thankfully compensated the meal.

“No complaints, just average”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

Went there for a large private function and the food and service was excellent! On a regular day though, I find the food, service and atmosphere average to good but nothing special. No complaints! :)

“Good value”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

We visited this restaurant for Brunch on Labor Day Monday and, in spite of the crowd, the food and service was quite good.

I opted for the buffet ($12.95) and found fresh eggs Benedict, crispy bacon, great cubed hash browns, salads, pancakes, fruit toppings, yummy desserts and much more. The items were replenished when needed and the food was always fresh and hot.

An interesting offer is a $2.00 'club' card for seniors, good for one year, that gives a 15% discount, but not on the day you buy the card.

Overall, a good experience on a busy day.

“Never disappointed.”

At least two of the servers have been there for a long time. The manager is always pleasant and is always hands on. Food is always good and hot. Restaurant is clean.
