A word from Smith Bros. Steakhouse Tavern
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.

    We both ordered the prefix dinner, which included salad, steak and dessert. we had a very pleasant server.THe house salad that came with the meal was very bland a looked like it came out of a bag, like the kind you can buy at the grocery store. The steak was prepared as ordered but was very bland. The sauce that we ordered with it was also very bland. I only wanted veggies with my meal,so a large crown of steamed brocoli was on my plate and that was all.Very bland. MY husband had everything the same except,he had mashed potatoes which he enjoyed.There was nothing else on his plate also,like some veggies. We both enjoyed our dessert.One was a creme brulee and one was a ice cream sundae. We have both been to this restaurant before and had a very pleasant experience.We obviously had not ordered steak dinner the first time.

    We got to this restaurant an average of once a month currently. We see a show at the Cineplex and then go to Smith Bros for dinner with another couple - usually on a Friday or Saturday night. This time it was Saturday night and it was busy - We had reservations so there were problems getting in.

    Food was very good but I felt the overall ambiance was a little casual. Nice restaurant but lack luster. Prices were in line with the food but high for the setting. Kind of nice but sorta looked like a fancy diner. Service however, outstanding! Overall, Great food and prices but excellent service.

    We had to wait about ten minutes for our table which was no big deal as I had only made the reservation that day. But the management apologized and gave us a free appetizer-this is the first time anywhere that I have been offered this. We enjoyed the dumplings. the food was excellent. We also like having the wine recorked; no more fears of DUI, plus we get to finish our wine in leisure at home. thank you all very much.

    When I asked for a glass of hot water from the waiter, his eyes just rolled up. I was surprised, as it was our first time dining here. The food was very filling and quality was good. We ordered 1 prime rib platter, 2x steaks, and 1 ayce mussels and fries and 4 glass of beer (1 for each of us). Overall, it was a good experience but would rather try another place next time.

    Food was good but not "Special". We had the roast beef dip (horseradish was missing) and the burger with cheese and bacon. Shoestrings potatoes were initially good, but became cold and greasy quickly and there were too many. Fries would have been preferable, but they don't offer fries. Crème Brule and Mocha Orange Mousse were both good as was the cappucinno. Will make a return visit to try other items on the menu. On the way out we walked through the area in front of the open kitchen and it was VERY hot and smokey. Would definitely not want to sit in that area.

    I loved that this restaurant served Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving day. Our kitchen is being renovated and we do not have family in the city, so this was a nice treat to get out and have Thanksgiving dinner served to us. I loved the squash and mashed potatoes. They have cool light fixtures in the restaurant as well.

    My husband and I had the Thanksgiving Dinner Special this past weekend. It was excellent...the portions were substantial and the food quality was excellent. We plan to return and try the steak menu in the near future. It was nice when one of the managers came by and welcomed us and asked us if we were enjoying ourselves and the food. This was the first time we went to the restaurant, but it will not be the last. The best part was our waiter (George) we never saw anyone move so fast and he was very helpful and friendly. Recommend highly.

    My steak was delicious and done to perfection. The matchstick fries were great and crispy. My friend had the chicken marsala with a salad, and her plate was cleaned. The service was excellent. Don't try the peppery cream sauce it is not good with steak. This place was huge and noisy. The music was a combination of jazz and who knows what played very loud. sa..

    Went to Smith Bros for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. Server was great however both my daughter's & husband's steak were very under cooked (asked for med well and at best was rare-medium). Mine was OK - but I ate alone and they ate theirs after I finished my meal. Manager was apologetic and took off our appetizers & gave us free desserts as well as a voucher. My daughter had the ice cream (vanilla) which was delicious and I had the berry cheesecake. Was not impressed with cheesecake...seemed more like a mousse and would not recommend it. All in all 6 out of 10. When I'm craving a steak...I'll Keg it!

    First time at this restaurant. The food was overall fair. The mussel app was ok, the sauce was a bit bitter and the mussels small. The bread was outstanding! Steaks were good and kids burgers were generous but slightly well done. Fries were tasty and fun. I had the steak with Lobster on top ... The lobster sauce stuff seemed a bit over processed like it came ready made. Mashed potatoes were good but slightly cool like they had been prepared much earlier. Ceasar salad could have been a bit more crispy. Our server was very nice and the atmosphere was good.

    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!!
