Were seated as soon as we entered, and service was very fast, and the food was great, had breakfast on a Monday Morning as was very happy with the speedy service and friendly staff. The food was hot and tasted great.

Deep fried hash browns. They market breakfast but can't be bothered to grill the potatoes. Might as well order a plate of French fries for breakfast. Enough said.

Our family stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning and we were seated (after a short wait which is normal I am told). The food was good, service was friendly and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this for a visit and be prepared to arrive early or wait.

The last time I went to Smitty's was out west, and their reputation wasn't the greatest, which is probably I've waited until now to go to this local one near my house. I was very pleasantly surprised though. The service was prompt, friendly and excellent and the food was way better than I remember it being. I ordered a custom... More

a nice Restaurant for Breakfast with good Service and friendly Waitress, special orders as a menu combination is possible, but is expensive

We had lunch here and it was really good. The prices are fair and the staff very friendly. Close to the Lord Nelson Hotel. They also serve a wonderful breakfast.

The service was fantastic, and the omelette was fantastic, Buffalo wing hollandaise sauce, wow impressive. Good coffee. I had to visit and I am sure this is one of the few places I have been to before when I last came to Halifax.

Not impressed with the service or the food for the price. The surroundings were okay and the location worked for us at the time.

A fairly average visit. As a gluten free vegetarian I find they have a few easy things on the menu for me. I had the spinach and cheese omelette with gluten free toast and a fruit bowl. I was slightly disappointed when it arrived at the table and it still had onions, tomatoes and mushrooms in it, which I specifically... More

I have eaten some really good meals in family restaurants - for a really good price - but I don't like the general atmosphere of most family orientated establishments. I don't enjoy the bright lighting, the fast pace or the general noise that is the norm for most family restaurants. Any restaurant that advertises 'kids eat free' is one that... More
