The Restaurant overall is just OK. The food is a quite plain, and a bit over-priced. They do have a good kids menu, which is quite reasonable. The menu is quite large with a lot of selection. Overall the staff are friendly and nice, but the place could use a bit of a renovation.

I order my Eggs Benedict with my usual request for extra hollandaise sauce since I find that most places tend not to give you enough. I usually have to pay extra. Our waitress brought it, and I thought it was extremely salty. I tried it again. Then I asked my husband to try it and he agreed that the cook... More

We have over the years not been at very many Smitty's restaurants as we felt the quality had gone down over the years. It seems that each restaurant needs to stand on its own but with the common menu. It truly makes a difference I believe in the food and experience if you have great staff. This location in Cochrane... More

The food is generally ok here but I dislike their pancakes. No taste but the syrup and they aren't chewy as they go to mush in your mouth. For the best pancakes Dennys has improved their recipe to include fresh buttermilk and they're hard pressed to beat home made. so other things just family restaurant chain ok but for pancake...

Four of us went for dinner and were very pleasantly surprised to be treated to any excellent evening. The staff were enthusiastic, friendly and attentive without being bothersome. We each had something different. All meals were very good. Well worth a return trip!

Recently taken over by new management and it has gone downhill, inattentive staff, dirty utensils. Food all over the floor. Dirty plates with left over food abandoned in full view of guests.

We had a large group gather here for an annual breakfast event -- I think we had around 40 people or so and everything went perfectly smooth, right from making the reservation through to the event itself. The staff was fantastic to work with and they made sure the group was well looked after. I had many comments from the... More
