Diner Reviews
  • "Haven't been here in a while- was very excited to reacquaint myself! I gave it three stars for reasons listed below. We were ready to order cocktails- first on the list was the mai tai! We were so excited to try it! The waitress told us they weren't available that evening. What? I was shocked. So we ordered some other drinks that were ok, but we weren't looking forward to them like we were the mai tai. Next- the waitress asked if we would like sourdough or cornbread- we said both! 20 min later, still no bread. They were over run w bread orders, waitress said. It was delicious when we got it. Finally, for dessert, I wanted the crisp. They were out if it, as well. A few disappointments."

  • "Smitty's Grill is always a great meal. I've been here many times and it's never disappointing. I most recently had the Prime Rib, which was delicious. I've also had the filet and some of their fish specials which were memorable. The service is excellent from the entire staff. Like many other Smith Brothers restaurants, the staff seem genuinely happy to be working at Smitty's. (If they're faking it, they're doing a good job!) All in all, I'd recommend Smitty's for a better-than-average meal, special occasion or not."

  • "We chose Smitty's Grill simply by reading ratings and reviews on OpenTable. Our last evening in the LA area celebrating my wife's birthday. The food was great and the server was exceptional. I would definitely return on my next trip to the area. Menu offers a wide variety and everything was prepared great."

  • "Seldom does one find a place that made its bones on comfort food that has that additional touch of innovation to remain fresh and appealing year after year. Such is the talent very much in evidence here. The old favorites--meat loaf, macaroni & cheese with ham, etc.--remain stellar representations of a bygone era that bring back a flood of warm memories. But the versatility of the kitchen staff extends well beyond the tried and true. And their flexibility for dietary restrictions or simple taste preference is the stuff of legends. Want the roasted chicken boneless? No problem. Want to change a side? Done. In addition, a wait staff that knows what it is doing and does it with a crisp professionalism that one doesn't find often. Terrific!"

  • "I'm moving out of town soon so I had to come back with friends and enjoy the great food and service at Smitty's one last time. We tried the bean and cheese dip with chips which was a delicious alternative to bread. I got the cob salad which is laid out like a piece of art when it arrives. Big chunks of chicken, tomato's and the rest. The chocolate mousse cake was excellent as well."

  • "It's warm and welcoming decor and broad ranging menu of gourmet treats mixed with comfort food is just perfect for any meal anytime. Great service, and with chicken pot pie on the menu, how can you go wrong. A dream."

  • "The food was good, but it was so loud in the restaurant that it was almost impossible to converse without shouting. It took over 15 minutes to receive the drinks we ordered, and we had to grab a staff person (very nice Thomas) just to order the drinks."

  • "We have celebrated our anniversary at this restaurant a couple of times. The service has always been great with friendly and attentive servers. We have always been perfectly satisfied with the food. My husband had a rib eye steak and I had a petite filet - they were excellent - tender, juicy and cooked perfectly. The restaurant made a special point of recognizing our anniversary with a hand-written note, orchids for us, and a delicious dessert. The only complaint we have is that the noise level is very loud. It was difficult to talk across our table. We will definitely dine here again, but perhaps not on a weekend night due to the noise level. "

  • "I was happy to discover that Smitty's was open for lunch. We had a great table on the patio. The service was very extraordinarily nice and responsive: had our group out within a hour. The food is always outstanding. Never had a bad experience. One of my favorite restaurants in Pasadena. "

  • "I always get a great meal and excellent service here. As a matter of fact, I was having a business meeting with two colleagues and both of them have dietary restrictions. Smitty's server did not even blink when one of my guests asked to design his own salad; server just said as long as we have it, we'll make it. I selected Smitty's trusting this would be the response and I'm glad they didn't let me down."

  • "Service was spotty. Something you expect at Denny's or Coco's but not at a restaurant that wants to cater to business lunch crowds and executives. "

  • "Halfway through our meal, the lights dimmed so dark it was inappropriate for dining with friends. In an attempt for romantic dining lighting, it alienated our non-romantic group."

  • "This place was great! The food was very good, and very reasonably priced. I walked in and they were playing my favorite music from the 70's ... totally fun! I would skip the chicken pot pie that everyone raves about, but other than that it was just an extremely satisfying experience from start to finish. Free valet parking ... can't beat that!"

  • "Smitty's is favorite for comfort and classic dishes. The wine list is interesting and they make a great cocktail. Prime rib is done perfectly in different size cuts. The menu offers variety for every level of appetite. Our entire table ordered from a full dinner to a salad and came away happy. The crowd always seems happy and the wait staff very attentive to diner's needs. A dependable dining experience when visiting or living in Pasadena."

  • "I generally love Smitty's and selected it for my birthday dinner. While I had clicked on 7:30, it turns out our reservation was set for 8. Not a problem, had cocktails. Clearly, they had read that it was my birthday because they did present a card and some orchids, nice touch - but, they sat us in the booth right on the hallway to the restrooms and the kitchen, certainly not the seat I would have selected if someone was having a birthday dinner. My sister flew down from Sacramento, this was not the best experience. The server had a very dry personality, not very engaging and we had to flag her down a couple of times. Sadly, I'm going to revert back to having all special occasions at Ruth's Chris. "

  • "We went to Smitty's when it first opened and were not impressed. But recently we have gone back, based on friends' recommendations, and were extremely impressed. The ribs and beef dip are outstanding. The manager was very attentive and sincerely interested in making sure everyone had a good time and great meal. Highly recommend Smitty's Grill."

  • "My daughter and son in law loved the restaurant. Our waiter was very good and always around when we needed him. He was funny and we appreciated his food suggestions. I also liked that we were seated earlier than our reservation without a problem. The ambiance was lovely and we could talk without shouting- very comfortable."

  • "At one time, Smiity's could be relied on for very good grill food -- great steaks, good salad, fantastic starters. Now it is all "pale" and mostly flavorless. They'e riding on their reputation. A real loss to Pasadena!"

  • "It was my wife's birthday and she had been away in Houston for a month. We had the whole family there and they found us a nice booth and even delivered flowers I had ordered along with some more from them with a card. The food is always good and the ambiance romantic. "

  • "The menu offers traditional American dishes, comfort food, and nothing outlandish - and sometimes that is simply what you want: Steaks, a good mac and cheese, a couple of fish options, decent burgers. And these items they do, they do very well. Where Smitty's sometimes falls down for us is with its service. While the waiting staff are always very pleasant, attentive service can be hit or miss. The other evening was not busy but we were left a while wondering if anyone would come to our table with menus and take our orders for drinks. A side dish went AWOL. Wines are good and there are enough choices by the glass. All in all, we always enjoy ourselves there, it's just for such a polished-seeming outfit, the service really could be better."

  • "I've had lunch at Smitty's in the past and recently took my family there for dinner. The service was very good and I like the location. But the food was very average. The meatloaf was o.k. but my wife's steak was not good at all. "
