Smith Bros. is based on a very simple idea..."going out for a great steak and a couple of beers shouldn't drain your wallet".

We're about awesome, 28 day wet-aged steaks and prime rib and we feature about a dozen local, craft beers on tap. A wide-ranging list of Mains includes Chicken Marsala, Panko Panko Shrimp, Mussels and Fries, the vegetarian Farmhouse Salad and Tavern Burgers.

Sharing appetizers include Firecracker Shrimp, Shanghai Chicken Dumplings and Prime Rib Sliders. Dessert choices like Creme Brule, Triple Chocolate Brownies and Smith Bros. All-Natural Ice Creams are the perfect way to complete your meal.

A unique Smith Bros. feature is the "Completes" menu category that includes a choice of starter, main course and dessert.

    everything was great. I had to wait a bit at the end to get my bill..seemed like my server stopped checking in at the end. But overall a good experience. Would of been nice to see some dinner specials. Even on just the weekends. The food we ordered was great and the restaurant met expectations. Will return. Staff were great.

    We were pleasantly surprised from the minute we walked in when we were warmly greeted by the hostess and waitstaff. We ordered the complete meals, our steaks were done exactly as requested, the authentic pepper corn sauce tasty, the salads were fresh and tasty, the wine list was very reasonably priced, the highlight of the meal however was the deliciously creamy creme Brule with the perfect crisp sugary top and the wildly delicious beer and praline ice cream. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. All in all it was a lovely meal and we will be back, the restaurant may be a little out of the way and the decor nothing fancy, but the reasonably priced meal and service were well worth it.

    Glad friend introduced me to this place.. Have come here many many times and recommended to others. Steak quality is top notch.. Price is fair. Only suggestion is to ask them to lighten up on salt on the steak (usually a little too salty but knowing that, always order with light salt.. That way, you could just add it to your liking).

    We went to celebrate my fiancee's 30th birthday this past Monday and we were blown away with the service and food we got at Smith Bros. George, our server, was amazing- it was very busy but he made sure we were treated right! The food was so, so, so amazing. From the PEI mussels to our steaks to the creme bulle everything was on point. The manager walked around and made sure to stop by and ask how our service was. We loved that personal touch. We couldn't believe we had something so close to home and we have never stopped by. Definitely will be coming back!!

    This was the 3rd time I have been to this restaurant, service is friendly, knowledgable and quick. Food quality has consistently been amazing. I had the prime rib platter cooked exactly as ordered I have also tried the salmon and steak all with the same review. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if looking for a goto quality steak house.

    My filet mignon was done just the way I wanted; medium rare and very tender. Other steakhouses don't cook steaks properly. Reasonably price and good to last bite. Spring rolls are crispy and dumplings are tasty appetizers. You can also try beer from local microbreweries. They serve a light apple cider beer that's refreshing. Smith Brothers are always consist with food and service.

    If you looking for a great restaurant in Scarborough, that should be down town, then you need to go to Smith Brothers Steak house & Tavern. They have craft beer from Canada. It's great value for the money- really where else you get a 3-course steak dinner for $26?? It's always tasty and cooked to perfection. You got to eat here!!!

    We enjoyed being able to sample different kinds of beers. The meal was good with the exception that all our steaks were under cooked. We did however send back one meal and the other 3 it was not until we got further into our steaks did we realize that they were under cooked as well. They were however very tasty with the different sauces.

    Way too dark for our liking - could not even read the bill when it came. The server was excellent and informative and friendly; menu unusual. Everyone was friendly, but for our first time there, not sure I would come back. You need some kind of light on the table and you should serve a vegetable with the dinner. Roast beef - English style was fantastic, as was the mashed potatoes. Atmosphere very plain and cold.....

    This is my second time at Smith Bros and as I expected, food was on par. For $25 (w/ tax $28) per person on Wednesdays, you get a lot of good food for the money. My steak was grilled to medium rare, was juicy and well-seasoned. The creme brulee was a surprise since it was cold inside and the sugar was hot and crispy (normally warm/hot). Although the restaurant was not busy on Thursday, my server (or all the servers) disappeared for a good period. I had to get the manager to get my bill. Shortly after, my server reappeared!

    I went with a group of old co-workers to celebrate one of them moving on to another job. When I was seated, I was politely greeted by our server and was informed of the alcohol selection that they have at the restaurant. The service throughout the night was top-notch (other restaurants need to learn from them as they have Customer Service 101 down to a tee) as the server was not aggressive in any way and the manager came by a few times to enquire about our experience. The only issue I had was that my steak came under-cooked; I had asked for medium rare and believe that it came more on the rare side. Aside from that, the overall experience was good and the prices were very reasonable. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    We had a reservation for 4, which they lived up to but put us under the AC, it was cool and drafty (blinds were moving). It took some time to relocate us. Our waiter was on-it and good, however the management seemed confused about where we should sit. Salad was good (we had the Ceasar); two of us had steaks - they were only okay - mine was under-cooked (I had asked for med, not med-rare) it was a sirloin and was a little tough & the matchstick fries were greasy. All in all it was only a fair dinner. We didn't speak up about the food, as we all felt it was too much after the confusion with being relocated. Previous visits were better, we will think twice about next time.

    We often visit because it is someone's birthday. It is the closest steak house to our house and is reasonably priced for steak. They do a good job, the service is good, it is dimmly light, but for some reason the sound echo's a bit. It's not as loud as some restaurants, but it's not super quiet either. We like it. It's in the neighborhood and the food is good. Our son loves the huge all you can eat mussels and fries dinner. My wife loves the steak, sausage and asked pot pie. I like the steaks. They are decent quality, but the sauces they offer makes me wonder. Don't get me wrong, they are delicious as are the sauces. But high quality steaks usually means no sauce required. Do you know what I mean? They cook them the way you want though.

    I had heard great things about this restaurant from friends, and for good reason. Food quality and service is excellent and price point is very good. Staff who we interacted with made the experience wonderful. We had the complete Prime Rib Platter dinner for $36. This includes a starter, entree & dessert. We had the Ceasar salad which was good and generous, prime rib platter; a large, thick piece of prime rib cooked & seasoned perfectly, that came with au jus, yorkshire pudding, & choice of potato, then berry cheesecake for dessert. Everything was delicious. Table spacing feels nice and roomy; You don't feel like you're too close to neighbouring tables. Additionally, parking is plentiful. This is a great steakhouse! Highly recommended.

    What a great restaurant in Scarborough. Steaks are as good, if not better, than The Keg and they cost a lot less. My sister and my Aunt had the salmon and I tried it - OMG it was yummy! My rib steak was done to perfection and was so tasty and tender. Their garlice mashed potatoes are delicious. Brittany was our server and she was a consumate professional. Efficient, fast, friendly and we really felt attended to. Well done Smith Brothers!! I'll return, that's for sure!

    We came to celebrate my roommates birthday and were very pleased with the food and the service. I work in the hospitality industry and am hard to impress but they did a wonderful job. We ordered the lobster and steak dinner combo and it was very good. The waitstaff were knowledgeable and attentive but not hovering. They only one thing was that the person who brought the food out must have been new and didn't look comfortable with the platters and didn't wait to be sure the steak was cooked correctly. When the waitress came back to check, she noticed right away that one steak was a bit undercooked and offered to correct it.

    We felt like steak but didn't feel like dropping double the amount for some of the higher end steak places downtown. Decided to drop by Smith Bros and I'm glad we did. We ordered the Filet and NY Strip and while both were good, we both liked the NY Strip more. This steak place is now my 2nd go to place, ranking even higher than some of the fancier places I've been to. The only thing we didnt like were the sides. The mash potatoes wasn't as flavourful as we hoped, and while the match stick fries were good, they became soggy from the steak juices and soaked it up. The baked potato looked good so we'll try that next time.

    It was too cold in the restaurant, asked the waiter to move and he told me if I could find a spot where the air wasn't blowing down on me then I could move..he didn't suggest any other location. He also didn't go to management to let them know of my complaint. The prime rib was cooked exactly the way we wanted it, however the beer was warm and the bartender/waiter had to look up how to make my cocktail (rusty nail). The cheesecake left a lot to be desired, it was more like a mousse than cheesecake. Overall this was a very disappointing experience as I had raved to my husband how good my last visit had been. Lesson learned, when I'm in the mood for steak I'll go back to the Keg.

    My husband and I had heard about SB and wanted to try a new restaurant. The overall experience was average but we were very disappointed in the food. The spinach dip was unseasoned and bland. We were shocked that neither the chicken Marsala nor Prime Rib came with any vegetables and was just meat and potatoes. As a couple that doesn't go out to eat to often we were looking forward to an enjoyable meal but left feeling underwhelmed and disappointed.

    I can't believe this place has been a hidden gem all these years! I came across this when I was looking around a good restaurant for steak and this places popped up. Yet, what draws me back to this gem is their appetizer mussels!! It was the best I have had for a while! The portion was absolutely unreal for a reasonable price, and was so deliciously cooked! My boyfriend and I have made plans to come back just for that appetizer! Their steak was also amazing. Best part was that you get to choose your own sauce for the the steak! I'm quite surprised this steak house has not gone viral!
