“Wholesome food!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

I went there for first time with my niece. She has lived in Pasadena so she thought this would be a good opportunity to try good American food! I was not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food fresh and tasty! The atmosphere was warm and relaxed.

“Great American comfort food & atmosphere”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

whether it's a business lunch or dinner you can't go wrong here. French Fries or Baked Potatoes! Steaks or Meat Loaf your choices are many. Great bar and a good selection of excellent wines by the glass. The service is near perfect!

“Always Great”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We are regulars that enjoy the great service and friendly management. We use to go the Parkway Grill several times a month, but Smitty's is now our favorite.

“COMFORT FOOD AT HIGH LEVEL”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We came here for a late evening dinner. The restaurant was still busy. We had a reservation and were immediately seated. The menu is definitely American comfort food. It was well served and the presentation of the food was attractively done. For appetizers we had the cornbread while good is done better elsewhere and the bean and cheese dip. Two of our party had the chicken pot pies which were quite large but tasty. Sand dabs and a pork chop rounded off the orders. Both were very good but not extraordinary. However, given the ambience and the size of the menu we will be returning to further explore the offerings

“Noisy, busy, but great food”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Loved the food and wine list. Hated having courses rushed to table. Interesting menu tilted to comfort food.
