Our first visit to Smitty's before a concert downtown. Arrived on a Friday night around 5pm and was seated immediately. Well after I cleared my throat to let the two teenage hostesses who were talking know I didn't want to wait to hear the end of their conversation. When we left at 6:30 there appeared to be a long wait.... More

Hands down the best steak I have ever eaten in my life. Ordered it medium and it was cooked perfectly. The ribeye was tender and very flavorful. You get a salad/soup, choice of side and bread. Totally worth the price.

We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation time, but were seated immediately. There were four of us so we were seated at a round table near the back. They were very busy, but our waiter attended to our drink orders quickly and was very friendly. We all ordered different pasta dishes which we delicious. Great service, great food... More

This was our first trip to Smitty's. My husband and I and another couple visited on Saturday evening. We were seated immediately, however it got very busy and filled up while we were there. We were seated close to the front door and as it started getting busy, people coming in and waiting on tables pretty much surrounded us. We... More

The atmosphere at Smitty's is great! Went there with friends for dinner. I ordered a sirloin steak well done. I don't like my steak to be pink in the middle but I also don't want it burned up. So many restaurants have a very difficult time finding something in the middle. My steak was perfect. I also had a salad... More

I live in Evansville, & Smitty's Italian Steakhouse is a place that should be on your list to try. I recently went there with a party of nine for a late lunch. We did not have a problem getting seated. Several of us had been there before, so we knew that we would be pleased with our choices. Our waiter... More

Level of service was fair. Young waitress seemed overwhelmed. Ordered New York Strip, which was extremely tough, and baked potato was over cooked.Cesar salad, and bread pudding was the only items that were decent.

Well looks like I'm going to eat my words. Last visit wasn't so good and thus a bad review. This time was great! Had a 12 oz sirloin, loaded potato, salad and bread. The steak was one of the best I've ever had, so was the potato and bread. Salad didn't fair so well but I'm not really a salad... More

We held a rehearsal dinner in their event room. The Italian food options we selected, and the staff were great! The cheesecake and toppings were a big hit for desert. I can't wait to try a steak next time we're in town!
