The pub is a nice noisy pub. The food is bad, very bad even compared to other pubs in the area. Tried the burger and it was over cooked with no flavor at all. French fries were also over cooked and potatos unpealed.

This restaurant was close to where we were and didn't have a line. The food was reasonably priced and decent. The service could have been better but I think they were short on staff. It is average.

Probably the best omelette in New York, served with great coffee and nice crispy bacon. There are many similar bars close by but Smiths is really worth a visit.
