Waited for over 30 minutes to get service once seated and finally decided to leave. Just a typical diner with typical diner food. Nothing special.

On our way through Idaho Falls we stopped in for lunch. The restaurant is dated but clean. My soup was so salty I could not eat it. The waitress said she would let the kitchen know but did not offer me a salad or deduct it from the bill. The BLT sandwich was supposed to be toasted sour dough, but... More

We came from Utah to visit family and this place was highly recommended. The waitress came by and took our order and then we never saw her again for OVER AN HOUR! No drink refills, no explanation of why our food was late. Nothing! There were 4 of us and as we decided to leave they brought out 3 of... More

We went on a Tuesday morning and they were not equipped to handle a table of 12. When we went in we told them that we were on a tight timeline. We waited an hour for our food. The food was good and the portion size was adequate.

Sometimes the food is excellent and the next time it is mediocre. The breakfast is average to good depending on the day you go and who is cooking.

This is where the locals eat and they know good food. I've eaten there many times when I'm in town on business and I've never been disappointed. I am a true fan. It's a local landmark worthy of the title.

I grew up going here and it wasn't until I was a teenager the I realized they had something other that Crepes. Steaks are excellent and cooked right. To be honest, I stick with what I like here and it is the Ribeyes. With the salad, pancakes (yes it sounds strange but its good), and desert I am always full... More

This restaurant has been a hit in my city for many years. Many gather here on Sunday for dinner as well. Their food is some of the best and everyone in this city knows Smitty's. From homemade rolls to homemade pies you won't be disappointed. Very generous servings as well.

The food was great well priced and the setting was excellent. The only complaint (if you can call it that) is that on average I believe the wait to be seated was 15 min. Not bad but could have been better.

This used to be a regular stop until we started bypassing Idaho Falls. Glad we stopped again and found that the place hasn't changed much as has the great food. My wife loves their pancakes (pecan this time) and I like eggs benedict. Also like the way they prepare the hashbrowns, not dripping in grease. Good job, keep at it.

Thank Michael E
