We used to eat here all the time and loved it. Recently we went and I was served kielbasa as "Italian Sausage". They are no where near being the same. We asked the waiter and he said it was Italian sausage (No it is Polish)...More

Had an awesome late dinner with my husband, service was wonderful and the steaks were cooked to perfection as usual! Great drink menu and overall food selection! This place will never get old!

The food was great! I loved the look of the old tin ceilings and the bar. We got there pretty early and it was still packed. The service was great! The dessert was delicious. It is a little pricey but not too bad.

Having recently moved back to Evansville's West Side, we decided to try Smitty's on a Friday evening. The building is 1890's vintage and the interior, while not fancy, is comfortable. We arrived at 5:30 and were immediately seated, although the restaurant was about 2/3 full...More

Met friends for lunch recently. There was a good variety to choose from. I ordered the cod sandwich with the vegetables. You could get the code grilled, fried or blackened; I opted for the grilled. The fish was cooked to perfection and the vegetables were...More

Dined with wife & son. We split a fried pickle appetizer, the breading was good. We all had the house salad, just a standard salad but the dressings were good. I had the rib eye, medium rare. Steak was properly cooked but somewhat bland. Mac...More
