Waited 20 minutes to be seated. Found paper towel in my omelette. Owner gave me 20% off my omelette rather than not charging me for food I obviously didn't finish. I'm a local and will not be eating here anymore.

When you come to Smitty's you know what you are going to get, dated decor, burgers, breakfast, etc. TIP: if you pay with the machine & tip by %, you will tip on the total amount (including taxes!) huge pet peeve of mine!

Had a late lunch here on Friday and the place was empty. We both ended up ordering the same item, Fish & Chips. I know it's not a highend restaurant and it's a franchise but boy the fish was inside a huge hunk of batter that was thoroughly cooked and very greasy. (Should have known better) What was most annoying... More

We needed a place to accommodate 8 golfers for breakfast. The staff was excellent and they made sure we were in and out in good time. Nothing fancy but enough variety to satisfy a large group.

We had just entered Canada and found this to be the first restaurant we came to in our travels. What a mistake to eat here!! The service was painfully slow, the price for two breakfast meals was almost $30.00, and the food was AWFUL! Customers seated all around us got their food with heaping plates of delicious-looking items. I ordered... More

The restaurant was recommended by locals and I was very happy with my breakfast experience. Erica was friendly and efficient. The food was cooked exactly the way that I ordered it. Whenever I will return to Fernie I know where I'll have breakfast!

We are visiting in Fernie for a few days and stopped in to Smitty's for breakfast. We had a a fairly standard bacon and eggs breakfast. Found the restaurant to be typical of most Smitty's though a bit smaller than average. It was clean, service was quick and friendly and the food was good.

I am not a hard person to please. We had breakfast there and I had the oatmeal. Brown sugar came with it but It was mixed in already. Okay, no worries- I asked for more. It took her awhile to come back and when she did, she had extremely hard "brown sugar". It was clumped together like extremely old brown... More
