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.
Very over priced for the quality of food and the ambiance. Food took over half an hour to arrive and my medium rare steak was beyond well done. Avoid the crab cakes as they taste as if they were previously frozen.
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!
Fabulous - ALWAYS! We love this place. Come here often because it is so good, so consistent and service and food are wonderful.
Service was great. Chicken was over cooked and dry. The noise is so loud you can’t have a conversation.
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 is always my first choice for a great lunch or dinner with business associates and friends. The food, service and ambiance are top notch.
My cousin, his wife and my girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed my birthday dinner. Great food, service, and atmosphere.
Overall experience was good but had to wait 30 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. We overheard someone who arrived after us with the same reservation time get seated before us.
