Back patio lovely and secluded, only one other table occupied, fireplace warming the chill of the evening. Great drinks, food, and service starting and ending with Carlos at the back entrance taking my car. An out of town first timer loved it as much as I have for many years.

The cornbread appetizer hits the spot. It has a crumb topping that is just sweet enough without being too sweet. The pot pie is quality comfort food and big enough for 2 people to share. The dining room isn't huge but there are a few tables out front on Lake Avenue and a few more tables in a small bamboo-ensconced courtyard patio behind the restaurant. And there's a fireplace in the courtyard. You'll see people walking in and out of the rear entrance, but the courtyard is a great setting for a meal.

I try to get there as often as I can, at least once a month. They've had to reduce their hours, in part due to the minimum wage increases, but I can usually adjust my reservation time to accommodate. During the day the patio is delightful. In the evening l like a quiet booth.

Make reservations for the first seating is the answer because people tend not to leave.

One of our party selected one of these items assuming it would be about the same as similar items on the regular menu. It turned out that the selected meal was about twice the cost of the other similar items. We got a bit of a shock when the bill came. In our opinion, the waiter should have advised when he saw we were ordering a more expensive item. Not every diner is oblivious to the cost of their meal.

We were two women dining and were seated first at a table that was hidden behind a booth (worst in the house) and literally was like being under burger warming lights. The glare was crazy. They could not turn down the lights so we were moved to a table behind the bar... not great either... lots of traffic. There were other tables and o had a reservation so not great placement. Otherwise, it was fun, easy and delicious.

She represents the restaurant well - she is friendly, helpful, efficient and a joy to work with. When I was there on Wednesday, I noticed that her usual section had been limited, and wonder why? I have never noticed her having difficulty serving all of us.

Will go again. Thank you Smitty’s !

High end comfort food. We had the fried chicken and meatloaf but have also tried the chicken pot pie on past occasions. Healthy portions & all tasty & worth ordering. Some come with sides & others do not so we ordered creamed spinach & fries. Cocktails were rather small but that shouldn’t stop you from coming here. Overall, great place.

While the restaurant provided nice touches like an orchid and a card for my assistant's special lunch (which were appreciated), the gestures were off set by the fact that our waitress made NO effort to be friendly or engaging. When the waitress brought her a birthday desert she just set it down, made no eye contact with my assistant, didn't say a word and walked away. I thought, wow, not at all what I was expecting from this venerable Pasadena institution. Additionally, the restaurant was quite noisy at 12:30 p.m.. The food was fine, but unfortunately the overall experience didn't leave me satisfied.

The noise level totally put me off. If I knew it would have been that loud I would not have made the reservation. But I have to admit that everyone in the group enjoyed their meals, especially my sons who were celebrating their birthday with their mom!!! However, my chicken piccata was little too sour, and I totally had very bad reaction to it later that night. Since, I personally prefer to enjoy my dinner in a calm and relaxing atmosphere, especially if I am going to spend a lot of money, I am sorry but I cannot recommend Smitty's for its ambiance and noise.

On a recent trip visiting from Orlando, FL, my husband and I liked our beef stroganoff and short ribs with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts that we had our first visit so much that we returned 3 nights later with our 2 daughters and their husband and boyfriend. 4 of us split 2 large prime rib dinners and the portions were still generous. Daughter's boyfriend said his chicken pot pie was the best he ever had. Tossed green salad was even really good. Great service as well. Servers wear crisp white shirts and ties. Our new special occasion restaurant for the family. Only downside is it's a bit noisy, but hey, it's because it's popular and everyones having a good time :).
