Fantastic prices. Located on a back street, the place was full of locals. I had the chicken wings. They were perfectly cooked. The cornbread was some of the best I had ever had and did not crumble into tiny crumbs. Service was prompt and friendly....More

We eat breakfast there on Saturday mornings when we visit the Farmer's Market on the opposite side of the street. My eggs are always cooked perfectly and the browned country gravy over the perfectly made biscuits is to die for.....but......they just can't get the service...More

Country cooking lives up to its name at Smitheys. Old time atmoshpere and down to earth staff! Good place to have breakfast!
