This place has good hamburgers & cheeseburgers. They have other items to eat, but these are what they are known for. They have a special sauce that they put on their burgers so this is what people go there for.

Smittys is a family owned well known burger place and bar in a little community. They have the best burgers. Their wings are also amazing! The atmosphere is great for anyone including kids.

Smitty's does a good business. The food is good at a nice price, and the staff is professional. A very clean restaurant with a nice bear/ lounge area, and an outside patio.

Smitty's is known for its Smitty-burger and an Obama visit. The food is good with daily specials. While I miss the bag of chips that the server opened for you at the "old" Smitty's place, the burgers continue to be good here.

Too much like Midway Oh Boy but with a bar. My friend enjoy the hot dog and onion rings. It would be great if they got their own signature style.

Half bar half restaurant. Small and local feeling. Special are specialty items not on the menu usually. Food is good but not really all that special. The prices have gone up it appears after the commander and chef stopped by. Doesn't seam the same value it obesity was

Local pub, good perch, sandwiches and reasonable drinks. Their version of the OH BOY, better that Norway's. Nice outside area, good for reunions and get togethers.
