Four of us went for dinner and were very pleasantly surprised to be treated to any excellent evening. The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and attentive without being bothersome. We each had something different. All meals were very good. Well worth a return trip!

Recently taken over by new management and it has gone downhill, inattentive staff, dirty utensils. Food all over the floor. Dirty plates with left over food abandoned in full view of guests.

Stopped on our way home from Banff. 5 of us ate, food was good, service was good and quick. Portions were quite big, only my son finished his food. We had breakfast and non-breakfast menu items and everything was good except the sweet potato fries were way over cooked.

It's a Smitty's what can you really say. The service is good. The food is decent as far as Smitty's go. It's a great place to take a bunch of people for lunch or breakfast.

A roomy comfortable restaurant with plenty of choice, we had the special at $11. It would fill up the hungriest of people, very good and included coffee
