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.
I love the chicken pot pie and this time, it was the best I've had... the taste was excellent and there was more chicken. Always love the crispy crust! The champagne was excellent. Loved our dinner!
Smitty's is always delicious and fun - it's my absolute favorite restaurant!
Always a great meal with a calm ambience
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.
It was great. The noise level was a bit much. We enjoyed it.
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.
An early birthday lunch.
Service could have been a bit better, otherwise it was fine!
Oh I love “ our” booth - and our Server is wonderful too- met Greg Smith this time- well done for my birthday lunch thank you !
Great food great service!
Always consistent food and service
Menu could be upgraded at bit
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 always a pleasant and reliable place to have a lunch with friends or business associates - great food, service and ambiance.
My family & I come to Smitty’s at least once a month, one of our favorite restaurants. Wonderful food & great service, I highly recommend anyone give this place a try when in Pasadena.
The food and service is always excellent. At lunch time I prefer the back room, or the patio. It could get very noisy in the main dining area; and some tables are too close together.
My family and I have been coming to Smitty's for over ten years and EVERY time we have had an OUTSTANDING meal. The service is EXCELLENT as well as is the beautiful setting. We HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for virtually any and every occasion!
The food was great. Everyone enjoyed the night out.
Disappointed with the stroganoff (shouldn’t the noodles be premium quality and al dente?) and chicken pot pie (watery and tasteless) Had to ask for bread - which is the very BEST anywhere. Shrimp cocktail was beautifully presented and delish.
Superb service, delicious food as always.
Great food and service is outstanding. Kathleen at the bar is amazing.
