Smitty's Grill Ratings and Reviews
Came here for birthday dinner late one evening and had a fabulous experience. The service was impeccable. All the staff was polite, helpful and personable.
The food was excellent. We ordered:
buttermilk fried chicken with two cute little cornbread muffins and honey butter - great crispy but light batter crust. The cornbread was good. I might have even ordered more if we sat a little longer.
Smitty’s Famous Meatloaf - a nice slab of meatloaf and gravy always hits the comfort spot.
The Grill Cheeseburger - good burger cook medium perfectly. Shoestring french fries we crispy and plentiful.
They had a salmon special, I don’t remember what it was called. It was a wee bit over cooked for my liking but the flavors were good.
We also ordered a side of creamed spinach. It was pretty hearty. I personally would have liked it a little more “creamed”.
Since I booked on Open Table and let them know we were celebrating a birthday, they had a birthday card waiting for us at the table and a small ice cream sundae at the end of the meal for the birthday girl.
This was our first time here. We were pleasantly surprised how much my husband and I enjoyed dining at Smitty's. We made the reservation online easily and the times available were plenty. When we arrived we were immediately seated in a booth which surprised us because the place was busy, not crazy busy but it looked full. Our waiter was very nice and courteous. The only minor issues is that our cocktails (and coffee later on) took a bit on the longer side to arrive but we were not in a rush so no big deal. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was very nice. Had a Houston's vibe but not as loud and much easier to have a conversation. My husband said we will definitely come back because next time he wants to try their specialty pot pie. Also, they do have a private parking lot in the back which was hard to see at night. We didn't see it on time and parked in a paid parking lot right next to their lot. Doh!
The atmosphere, which I relly like, is up scale east coast urban. From the welcome at the hostess desk to the end of the meal, all interactions with Smitty's team are professional and pleasant. Of course, the food is great. For value, you cannot beat the several standard specials that are very moderately priced. The chicken pot pie is amazing. This place is a winner - which may be why Smitty's is so popular.
Always love eating at Smitty's. Shrimp cocktail is awesome! Had the trout the other night and it was very good. Only disappointment is that they took liver and onions off the menu except for the first weekend of the month. I am from CT so I think they should have it every FR, SAT, SUN. Sand dabs are also tasty.
Smitty's has a great lunch menu as well as dinner. We spent three hours there because you aren't rushed to eat. You can have your cocktails and/or wine with an appetizer then order your dinner. Their menu has delicious comfort food and daily specials. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Came here Saturday to celebrate Valentines Day early. Food was good and our server was attentive but, it was just way too loud. We could barely hear each other. Probably because we got seated by the bar even though it was 5:20 and the restaurant was half empty.
No one said anything when we left, even the waiter who was right behind us as we opened the front door on the way out. A simply thank you would have been nice after spending over $150 on dinner. I doubt we will ever come back.
I would eat here every night and every meal if I could. Smitty’s never ever disappoints. The food is spectacular. Every single thing I have ever tried. The service is fabulous from the hostess to the wait staff. I love the ambiance young and lively but not trendy. It’s the best of what Pasadena has to offer. I love it here!
Smitty's is a major winner. Food was superb both in the restaurant and with take out later for dinner. My wife and I enjoyed at home and my friend and I loved our lunch.
Service from Taylor excellent. Host very nice. Could not be better. I wish it was closer to home, but at 60 minutes can't very often.
Thank you to all.
We had an early dinner on a Sunday, after a theatre event. The seating preferences we requested were in their computer and worked perfectly. Staff was attentive and helpful, accommodating special requests. Wine list by-the-glass choices cover a solid range of options and prices. Food was fresh and well prepared. We always enjoy Smitty’s- it’s comfortable and easy to find tasty options. It’s the perfect place when you want a delicious dinner but don’t need bleeding edge trend ingredients and preparations!
We had excellent service! Friendly, quick, fun. We had theatre tickets at CalTech at 8pm and the service we received made it easy for us to make the performance on time. I choose Smitty's Grill as it was listed on DINE LA 2018 and were given a wonderful choice of meals. We've been to this restaurant previously, and will definitely come again.
