From the moment we arrivedFrom the moment we arrived to the time we left, our experience surpassed our expectations. The waiters were attentive and very helpful. We were not used to dining in an upscale casual restaurant but everyone made us feel so welcome and still gave such a respectful grace. We were more than pleased!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSmitty's RocksSmitty's is such a good restaurant I go every year and love it more and more each time I go.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSmitty's is consistantly goodSmitty's is consistantly good every time I have been. Homestyle classics that have tons of flavor.
The cornbread in a skillet is a great starter, warm out of the oven.
All the entrees deliver each time I have been, a few of my favorites include the Beef Stroganoff, creamy and rich with tender chunks of beef, the Macaroni and Cheese with chunks of Ham, and the Pork chop is perfectly cooked double chop, extremely moist.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day mealOur Family had a great night. The service was excellent. The Manager, Tom recommended the Bean Dip Appetizer which was very good. My only complaint was the boneless short ribs which were bland, chewy and somewhat tasteless. The Halibut and Porterhouse Steak and HamBurger that the rest of the party had were very good. We will return but I will avoid the short ribs.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent AfternoonI brought my assistant to Smitty's for lunch to celebrate this 23rd birthday.

But outside was lovely. Service was good and the food was tasty. Also they were willing to make substitutions on items. I had mussels and clams that were out of this world! Everyone else was very satisfied with their meals.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and with theExcellent food and with the added addition of comfort food specialties, such as meat loaf and chicken pot pie, both house specialties. The salads are generous and the sides ample. This particular night we were a group of six, the service was excellent, though the wine service left something to be desired, uneven pours on the first serving, the last glass filled almost to the brim in order to empty the bottle. That would be the first disappointment we've had here. It is highly recommended since the food is what you are really there for.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and in split the WedgeMy wife and in split the Wedge and had New York and the meatloaf.

The specials are well done and the "restaurant in house" specials are fabulous comfort food. The portions are ample and the corkage fee is $15. This is a wonderful place to go to for a nice special night dinner, just for a relaxed dinner out, for a business meeting, or just to get out of the house. Highly recommended.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI will returnSmitty's Grill is one of best restaurants in Pasadena. We have eaten here many times and they
