Went here for dinner after our visit to the Pasadena Showcase house. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. At first it seemed so loud but after sitting for a minute or two it was rather nice for a very busy restaurant. The floor...More

The wait staff was great. Food delicious. No complaints at all-I would go back again. I had the salmon and it was perfectly prepared.

Good reviews brought me there 1st time....very disappointing. Gave them a 2nd chance, but I was right the 1st time. High prices for fancy meatloaf?. Fool me once, shame on Smitty's...fool me twice, shame on me! Would never return.

Prime rib and baby back ribs were both quite good, but the star of the show were the humongous shrimp in the appetizer. Perfectly cooked and almost an entrée by themselves.

One of my favorites is the short ribs, their steaks are also outstanding. My wife likes the seafood specials and we both like the wedge salad which we always asked to be chopped before being served. A very vibrant bar scene which can get a...More
