Couldn't ask for a better Mother's Day celebration! The food was superb—everyone enjoyed their choices immensely. Parking was a breeze and economical. Will try to stop in whenever I am in Pasadena. (I came from the Westside for this occasion.)

This spot used to be one of my favorites in the San Gabriel Valley. About a decade ago, they would offer a plate of two plump, juicy, succulent pork chops (which was a must have when you visited). About five years ago, they cut the portion in half to a single pork chop. I learned on Mother's Day, that the pork chops are no longer offered. So sad. The signature corn bread is still tasty and the chicken pot pie is good. But some of the magic has dissipated when you visit Smittys now.

Very nice restaurant and good food. Had a reservation for 8:45 and we had to move it up to 7:00. Restaurant was willing to accommodate us even though they were very busy on a Friday night. Thanks very much especially to the hostess who helped us.

Outstanding service and ambiance. Every dish we ordered was well prepared and very tasty. I, feel, however, that their prices are a bit out of wack for the style of restaurant: $7.00 for a cup of soup; $8.00 for a standard side salad consisting of lettuce, cucumbers and a few tomatoe slices: $9.00 for corn bread. My $18.00 Old Fashioned, while quite good, was small in portion and personally not worth more than then normal $15.00 you would find in most upscale restaurants. I would return again to Smittys but with the pricing, it would have to a very special occasion and just no "an evening out".

I've driven by Smitty's many times and never thought to try it, even though I have tried some of its "sister" restaurants such as Parkway Grill. We came to celebrate a birthday and a card with a handwritten note with 2 sprays of dendrobium orchids were for the guest of honor! We knew it was going to be a nice occasion. Server was attentive and knowledgeable. We had a party of 4 and all chose different entrees. The strawberry salad was shared and was delicious. I had the fried chicken dinner that offered 5 pieces of chicken and choice of a salad or soup or steamed vegetables. Chicken pieces were cooked perfectly and were juicy and flavorful. Generous serving of steamed vegetables of stringbeans, cauliflower, carrots. Guest of honor had the chicken pot pie that was enormous and one of the best I've eaten. Lots of chicken and vegetables with a flaky crust and delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, Smitty's will fill that need! We shared a key lime tart , chocolate mousse pie, and the honoree's brownie with vanilla ice cream. All the desserts were incredible! We've decided that Smitty's will probably become one of our favorite restaurants and will try something different the next time. We know it will be delicious!

We ordered the Dungeons crab salad and ribeye steak. Both were pretty good. The only issue is there was one waitress for whole back dining room so the wait to order was long. She did the best she could.

We were short on time since it took us 1 1/2 hours to get to the restaurant from the Westside of Los Angeles. However, it was well worth it. The food was delicious. Sand dabs are so rare these days and had to order when I saw them on the menu. My husband ordered the famous chix pot pie. So so yummy. Wish we had time for a little dessert but we were off to the Pasadena Playhouse. The food was so much better than the play we saw. Anyway....can't wait to come back!

We've always enjoyed Smitty's, however, our last two visits have been slightly disappointing. I asked for my steak medium rare and it was over cooked. I asked for a baked potato because the mashed potatoes lack flavor. The rest of my party enjoyed their meals but there were no raves. We will continue to patronize Smitty's because the staff is friendly, the service is efficient, and we are comfortable there.

Had a lovely night with my wife! Ambiance and service was just fine.
Food:
We had the shrimp and calamari appetizer --- very good!
My wife had the Smokehouse (?) burger --- also very good!
I had the New York steak aged 40 days (cooked rare) --- not that great, especially for a $42 steak.
I was expecting a very tender cut that would be easy to chew. What I got had a huge chunk of un-edible gristle and fat that ran the entire length of the steak. Just cutting that sucker off was quite a to-do. The edible part of the steak itself was seasoned just fine and wasn't dry, but ooph, I found it rather tough to chew. Sizable steak that it was, my jaw was a bit tired by the end. Now I'm no master chef, but the $7 on-sale steak I bought at Vons and grilled on the BBQ was more tender than that. I wasn't going to say anything to my wife (who very much enjoyed her burger), but she said to me after a few bites of my steak "The steak you cooked last week was better."

That I spent $42 on a sub-par steak is a bummer, but we did still enjoy ourselves! We would definitely come back again---I would just be more hesitant to order steak.

It's one of my wife's favorites but our larger group was crowded, the noise level was too high, and frankly the menu choices are a bit too familiar. Maybe they could add a duck and a pasta special.

Food was not up to Smitty's usual fare. Had to wait for reservation table to be vacated and re-set. Noise level is most difficult to hear a conversaton - better when adjacent tables were vacant.
