I took my son there on a weekend. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was good, you can't mess up eggs too bad and pancakes were ok. Smittys decor is getting old and tired.

I do not know what has happened to the pancake houses that specialzed in pancakes. Possibly with the varied menu items they have forgotten how to cook a pancake. A pancake is light, golden brown and served hot. It is not served warm dark brown, crunchy and chewy. BAD BAD BAD PLACE FOR PANCAKES.

We left Edmonton early and drove to Edson before we had breakfast. I was quite hungry by that point and was really pleased with the speed of the service. We both ordered the breakfast special which included eggs, bacon, sausages a choice of toast or pancakes plus juice. This all for $10. The restaurant is large and fairly clean.

Very typical Smitty's. Good Wednesday night prime rib special (I didn't have it, but many others did). Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere to visit, food was quick and service with a smile :)

Saw several cars parked here so decided to try this place. We had the senior Salisbury steak dinners and they were delicious. The veggie was a mix of broccoli, cauliflower, squash, carrots, etc. which my hubby does not like so they graciously substituted sliced tomato for him.

We stopped for lunch on our way through to Jasper. The restaurant was very nice and clean and the staff were lovely. We had the hot turkey sandwich and the turkey dinner. Both were very tasty. The veges were probably frozen, which is fine, but they were a little dry and overcooked. The turkey was lovely and so was the... More

I was looking for a place to have lunch today, as I was driving by, I noticed the parking lot was full, so I thought their must be good food. I was seated right away, the staff are very freindly, the place was large and lots of seating. The beef barley soup was good, but the Canadian Burger was average.... More

Food was mediochre. Coffee tasted like watered down coffee with no flavour. Cost of this experience was not worth the food. Waitress was overly bubbly,very annoying. As we come from Edmonton, and the points program is honoured for all the Smittys in our city, we assumed it would be honoured in Edson. NOT TRUE. they offered us a Diners points... More
