Great spot for Breakfast or any other meal. Get there early and you get the local paper for free. It is nice little feature. Meals are good and they have good specials. If you look for the specials you can get good deals. Lots of local shopping. Home Depot is right next door and Cosco is just down the road.... More

I rarely eat breakfast, but find when I'm travelling, it's a must. This is my favorite place for breakfast. I love their 3 cheeze omelet with an order of bacon and oj.

It is hard to imagine that a restaurant could ruin something as simple as a Western sandwich but Smitty's managed to do it not once, but twice in one sitting. The first attempt had nothing but a few strands of ham in egg that was wafer thin between two pieces of soggy toast. After sending it back with the suggestion... More

Good place for breakfast or lunch. Not fancy. Affordable prices. Decent menu. Good service. Plenty of free parking. Nothing special but an OK spot to obtain a quick feed bag!

I went with my family , wife and daughter . The service was horrible it took more than 30 minutes for our food to arrive . We had to call all the time for coffee to be served and the prices were extremely overpriced . Small portions. Bad experience.

Had the Denver omelette, got mushroom instead of onion and it was super good. Thought it came with hash browns so I got fruit as my side, but you only get one side, be aware LOL. Friend had the 3 strawberry pancakes, big order, fluffy, whip cream, super good but no side unless you add one. Overall, good meal but... More

$13.69 for a ham & cheese omelette. Ordered $1.49 add ons - mushrooms plus spinach. The whole thing was miserably small. The ham was just a few little cubes, the mushroom (singular) was cut razor thin and vaguely discernible, and the spinach may have been three leaves. Toast was an additional $1.49. The other meal was a 6oz breakfast ribeye... More

This is a great place to go for breakfast any time of the day, I often go there at lunch time for brunch. Good value for the money.

The food was okay but the portions were tiny! Just a dribble of hollandaisse and less that a handful of potatoes. For the price my portion was tiny. Tried some some of my bf's pancakes as I was still hungry! Did not seem fully cooked. Worst coffee I have had in a long time, and it was a real hassle... More
