Smith Bros. is based on a very simple idea..."going out for a great steak and a couple of beers shouldn't drain your wallet". We're about awesome, 28 day wet-aged steaks and prime rib and we feature about a dozen local, craft beers on tap. A wide-ranging list of Mains includes Chicken Marsala, Panko Panko Shrimp, Mussels and Fries, the vegetarian Farmhouse Salad and Tavern Burgers. Sharing appetizers include Firecracker Shrimp, Shanghai Chicken Dumplings and Prime Rib Sliders. Dessert choices like Creme Brule, Triple Chocolate Brownies and Smith Bros. All-Natural Ice Creams are the perfect way to complete your meal. A unique Smith Bros. feature is the "Completes" menu category that includes a choice of starter, main course and dessert.

We have gone to Smith Bros. About 15 times in the past couple of years. The food is simply awesome and the service cant be beat. On Friday we went again for dinner. My wife ordered the chicken, avocado and roasted Red pepper sandwich, along with a Cesar salad. My wife took a bite and discovered there was a little spicy Mayo. My wife can’t take any spice{so sad}. The menu clearly stated it had spicy mayo on it so it was clearly our fault. The waiter was so kind and understanding he ordered another complete dinner for my wife at no cost to us. If that is not customer service I don’t know what is!!! In any case,Smith Bros. Has been around for a few years and has a very loyal following because it is a great place to eat and the service is spectacular. Give them a try. I highly recommend them.

The food was good. My steak was a bit under done. But it all tasted delicious. The service was prompt but the server himself presented in a way that it seemed we were bothering him. He was not friendly at all. The manager did come by the table to check in. We were there quite early so there were only a couple tables occupied. I was not overly impressed and probably wont go there again.

Service and food were amazing but the noise level was such that we had to talk pretty loudly to have a conversation. I think it must be generally a very loud restaurant.

A bit odd that the Waiter asked if we were there for an occasion and we said it was our anniversary... and that was the end of the discussion.

First time there - except for being placed at a booth that was right at the bathroom - that never makes me happy. Our waiter was really nice a d lots of fun. Would definitely go back.

Our Server George was superb.
1. He acknowledged us when we sat down
2. He had perfect timing when it came to taking our orders
3. He refilled our waters twice before setting down a pitcher
4. He asked us if we wanted more bread when we ran out
5. He apologized if we didn't like the dessert as he noticed that we didn't finish it
6. He wasn't intrusive, or overly friendly

Though many might think that these are obvious behaviours of a Server, they are not. They are easy tasks, but not many Servers do this. It shows courtesy and respect for the patrons.

It has been a long time since we have had service such as this. Simple and little things, but things that make the difference.

Birthday dinner.
Spinach dip app. Was good, nothing special though.

Ordered Rib Eye. Medium. Was seasoned and cooked ok, but I cook a better steak at home on my stove. Meat wasn't super tender... gristle and fat too prevalent. 50 % of steak wasn't really edible for that reason.

My fiance got the seafood and sirloin... her steak was rather tender and 100% gristle free. I found this odd. I expected my steak to be fattier... but also expected it to be more tender than hers.

Server seemed to be in a bad mood, caught him bickering with manager/supervisor. Did just enough to say that he wasn't a bad waiter.

Desert was ok, new fudge Sunday. The fudge was warm and delicious.

The food was not cooked to order, the server spilled stuff on my friend and didn't know what a new item was on the menu and the steak knives were as dull as a butter knife.

Foods, service seating and style were all excellent. We arrived before our reservation time and were immediately seated.
Our server introduced herself to us within a minute.
Everything met with our satisfaction. Managers were stationed at the open food prep area ensuring everything was sent out as ordered.
We will continue to patronize Smith Bros.

There was confusion re which server had responsibility for our table so we ended up waiting almost 15 min to put in a drink order ... even though we tried to flag someone down.

Great place! Food is so good and the complete meals are great value. I went home with leftovers. The clam soup was delicious. Caesar salads are a must and I had prime rib which was so juicy. Finished off with puddin and ice cream which were wonderful. We’ve been here several times and will continue to go back. The service is always great which I really appreciate. We love coming here as it’s closer to home and love that we can park.

Food was superb, steaks were done to order with perfect char. However the service could be much improved. There was long wait at the front even when we had reservation. Later on our waiter had to be reminded of bringing us bread, water and steak knives as the meal went on. Not as professional as the previous times we had been here

Fantastic evening out. Service was exceptional she was even able to make recommendations and was knowledgeable about the menu. Food was amazing and we came all the way from Aurora ( cuz we are sick of the poor service and mundane food at the Keg)
We loved the change at Smith Brothers - we will be back again and highly recommended to friends/family

I chose a steakhouse for my partner's birthday dinner. It was our first time coming to Smith Bros. Steakhouse Tavern. It was an overall lovely experience from customer service to the flavour of the food. We definitely will come again and we've already told a few friends about it. Thanks for contributing to a nice birthday dinner!

I was excited to go to Smith Bros. I have heard about it for years and, because we live north, never managed to wend our way south and east. The recent ads on the radio piqued my interest. I found the mussels to be OK and I was somewhat disappointed in my steak. There was nothing wrong with it but it certainly did seem to me to be Top Ten as I had heard they were rated. I think that I get better value at Canyon Creek.

Had never been here but heard lots of good thing about it. So when picking a place to celebrate 3 birthdays, 2 of them being milestones we decided to try Smith’s and very very glad we did! The steaks and prime rib dinners were exceptional, as were the sides. The service was very good and the special touch of bringing a dessert with lit candle for all 3 Birthday Boys was the icing on the cake! All 5 of us would definitely go back again.
