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.

Service was amazing especially with 3 kids in our group! Food was great. My only complaint was the boiled broccoli (seasonal veggie side). That could have been seasoned a little more. Loved the Greg's ice cream options.

I have been going to Smith Brother's for the last 3 years for my birthday. I love the food and the service is great. I have recommended Smith Brother's to friends and they have attended on their birthdays and totally enjoyed their experience. Smith Brother's is definately one of my favourite restaurants to dine.

Although food was good it was not exceptional. I think the prime rib is the better choice over the steak. We were extremely disappointed in the wine selection. How can a "steakhouse" not offer a decent selection of wines. We will not return for that very reason.

Went for lunch for a family occasion. Most of us ordered a burger, which we were pretty happy with. Steak & Potato chowder was excellent. The house salads were ok but...lettuce was quite soggy. Service from our waitress was excellent. All of us were quite happy we chose to go there.

As always the food was outstanding, serving it exactly as I like. My preference for steak is always blue rare and on the very blue side and that is exactly the way that it was presented to the table. The beer selection was very good as well, and ranging from a cider to a stout all very flavourful. The only thing that I would have asked for is a small side of vegetables, just to add a bit of colour to the plate. The service was outstanding as always and we were also visited by the manager who makes it part of his responsibility to ensure the satisfaction of every table. Well done Smith Bros. as always, we'll definitely be back.

We took our two little ones to dinner at Smith Brothers on New Years Eve. I had never eaten there before, but the reviews were amazing.

Immediately upon being seated, our waitress took our order. She made sure to bring two smaller cups with straws for my kids, and overall had an amazing personality about her. I believe her name was Lauren.

My husband and I ordered our steaks medium, but there were a little bit more on the rare side. The restaurant Manager had new steaks brought out, sincerely apologized and even discounted the bill.

We will DEFINITELY be going back later this month for our anniversay. The food was amazing!!! (Don't skip the bread & whipped butter, it's to die for!) I'm so happy that we found another steahouse with a cool atmosphere!

Went for early New Year’s Eve dinner before a movie. Atmosphere was very festive, with New Year’s Eve tokens and paraphernalia all around. Staff were all dressed for the occasion which was really great. Food was perfect and had one of the best Long Island ice teas ever: long, cool, with the right amount of lemon acidity!! Service was great. We had a wonderful leisurely celebratory dinner... The perfect way to end the old year and welcome in the new!! Five stars, Smith Brothers!

Horrible food. Ordered the rib platter and all taste awful. Didn’t meet my expectation. It was nice the owner said if there was anything they could do but really there wasn’t anything they could do. I attempted to eat half of the plate and try to fill my stomach up but no matter what the price is, it is not worth of going. I would not recommend people to go in any circumstances.

For a restaurant / tavern to run well you need a great team, positive minds and great food. Well I’m impressed by the management and on how the staff reacts to situations in a positive manner .....keep up the good work.

Had difficulty with the reservation. Used online system. It did not record the correct no of guests which meant we ended up with a much earlier dinner time than planned - which was inconvenient. But we enjoyed our evening the food and service were great. Thank you.

It was not our first time visiting Smith Brothers. We absolutely love it. Our only issue this time was being told we did not have a reservation when I had an email confirmation and then an email afterwards saying that we did not show up for our reservation and that hurts the restaurant.

We do not live in Toronto. We drive in from Whitby. (would love to see a Smith Brothers out that way!)

Amazing dinner with friends! We’ve been coming to this restaurant for years and friends of our always refused because of the location. We live in Whitby and always prefer to stay around home. They were amazed at how good the steaks were, perfectly cooked to our liking. Prices have gone up over the years for the completes. Definitely all four of us will be back! Thinking of opening another location, consider Pickering, Ajax or Whitby please

waiters could be a bit more friendly. Some other times waiters were going out of their way to make it friendly. Don't know if it is because he had to work Friday night? we were there early and it wasn't very busy. Just feel it is special for us to go out to dinner and want good food and friendly service.

Meals are always perfect. This is our go to restaurant for celebrations. Last Sunday the music was beautiful Christmas Carols (not just songs). The ambiance was wonderful. I love this restaurant. We live near Yonge and Eglinton, yet we travel to Scarborough for dinner. It is definitely worth the drive.
