American Comfort Food At Its Best
"America the scrumptious" Food critic Merrill Shindler
“Solid, comfort-food classics have most returning again and again” Zagat
Considered a dining room away from home by many in Pasadena, Smitty's Grill continues to warmly welcome new and long-time guests to its comfortable surroundings.
American comfort food forms the core of the menu, which features iron skillet cornbread, homemade chicken pot pie, and BBQ baby-back ribs, along with daily, fresh seafood specials, and other contemporary and irresistible offerings.
Smitty's has always been defined by comfort, and the feel of “home,” down to the classic, black-and-white photographs hanging on the walls. Soft lighting envelopes everything in a relaxing glow, while the fireplace warms the scene on the Garden Patio. From the cozy booths, to the inviting bar, to the warm, helpful staff who welcome each guest – it’s a classic, Rockwellian picture.
A perennial favorite amongst Pasadena's watering holes, the cozy bar at Smitty's brings together old friends and new. Whether having lunch over conversation with the barkeep, or evening cocktails amidst the bustle of the lively dining room, a more sublime retreat from everyday routine could not be found.
