We've stopped at Smith's before and really enjoyed the food. This time, we stopped on Sunday around 1:30 pm and had a 30 min. wait from the church crowd. We didn't mind that so much but then order a tenderloin sandwich to split and waited 30 min. for that. Got dessert to go as well and it was just okay.... More

It was Sunday busy but we were seated within minutes. Waitress was attentive. Food was very good. Chicken strips, baked beans, yeast rolls, pork tenderloin sandwich and onion rings were excellent! Mashed potatoes were lumpy. Chicken fried steak was hand breaded but was more crust than meat. We would have liked one of the varieties of cobbler but we were... More

Food has been consistently good recently. Good value for your dollar. Hubby had the fried chicken special. Good roll, chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy. This visit I had a Patty melt. Good and good fries. Last visit I had an alfredo pasta with blackened chicken. Excellent.

Love this restaurant! Huge portions for the cost! Down home cooking! Giant tenderloin sandwich! Enough for 2! Breakfast is awesome, as well as any lunch or dinner choice! Like restaurants of days gone by. Very friendly!

I live very close to Smith's Restaurant. Have been several times. I like salads and lighter fair, so never have had the tenderloin. My favorite treat is a milkshake. You see, they will make a milkshake out of any of the 10 to 15 homemade desserts they have. Blackberry cobbler milkshake? No problem...turtle pie milkshake?..you got it. Coconut cream pie... More

Every time I pass through here I see the signs, taunting me "Home of The Giant Tenderloin Sandwich", turn left now!! So, I made the left turn and said, challenge accepted!! Needless to say, I walked in and found the place very clean, staff friendly and polite and plenty of seating. My waitress whose name is Paige was very courteous... More

Stopped here on a college visit to SBU, and everything about it was fantastic! The employees were very nice and helpful, the service was super fast, and the food was phenomenal. I got the tenderloin dinner, which was a very generous portion. The mashed potatoes and Texas toast are also a must get. There is also a small gift shop... More
