Deep fried hash browns. They market breakfast but can't be bothered to grill the potatoes. Might as well order a plate of French fries for breakfast. Enough said.

Ate there on Tuesday this week after a 7 hour bus trip. The salmon special was so delicious.

Everything was done to perfection and I couldn't finish everything. Great value for money. Glad I chose the salmon... More

Our family stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning and we were seated (after a short wait which is normal I am told). The food was good, service was friendly and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this for a visit and be prepared to arrive early or wait.

The last time I went to Smitty's was out west, and their reputation wasn't the greatest, which is probably I've waited until now to go to this local one near my house.
