... if I wasn't so far out of the city. Didn't have any food, but it looked delish! The bar (manager) was very friendly and was very attentive to my friends and I. We all had something different to drink (mixed drink, beer, and wine), and were all very pleased. For the beer lover, the selection was appropriate. For a laid back Saturday night in the city, it was perfect. Seemed like a good place to either walk in and hang for a quick drink or stay for a while. Not sure how this place is on a weekday (but will soon find out). I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was a Wii gaming system available for enjoyment, though everyone was there to watch the Phils game at the time. Once the game was over, the music was great! I will DEFINITELY return based on the atmosphere, service, and potential for food to be amazing.

I had a large group here last Saturday, and the service at Smiths was fab from the beginning to the end. Everyone went on and on about how great the food was, and they were great about the crowd. The place is swanky enough to bring a date to but has a comfy feel that's great for hanging out. I love it it is one of Center City's best kept secrets!

I wanted to to respond to the post, with which I couldn't disagree more, regarding the turkey sandwich. I had it last night while hanging out at the bar and watching the Phillies game. It was flavorful, filling, and mighty tasty. Definitely several steps above your average bar sandwich. Smith's is a great place to hang out, grab a drink, watch the game and get a great bite to eat!

(Business Lunch with 6 others) First of all, I ordered the "hand carved" turkey sandwich with aged melted cheese and apple wood smoked bacon on a pretzel roll for about $10. The turkey was deli turkey, there was no aged cheese--there was an orange watery mess on my roll, the bacon was fatty and didn't seem like apple wood, the roll was decent. After waiting forever (there was hardly anyone in there), we waited until 10 mins. after our meal started to receive refills on empty drinks. The music created a strange atmosphere of a sports bar. And these were not sports bar prices for lunch.

I've been to Smith's quite a few times as it is right around the corner. Food is consistently fabulous - boneless wings are awesome, quesadillas are delicious and some of the best sandwiches in the city! Do not miss the turkey sandwich. Fries are also great. Service is hit or miss, but this is a great hidden find as they have darts, big comfy chairs and always enough room to walk in on a Friday or Sat night for a good time with friends. I hope a few more people discover it and frequent it as this is a great place.

Don't bother trying to order take out - they don't answer the phone!

Me and a bud came in a little late for lunch, place was pretty packed. Only seats, it seemed to us newbies, was at the bar. Little did we know until later that there was a bigger bar next door. Eureka!! Beer selection for a venue like this, on the smallish side, was fairly exceptional...Magic Hat(9 I think), a coupla local pilsners, Guiness of course, Sierra Nevada, and a few others. A beer snob of sorts, I was happy. The lunch menu is competitively priced. My portobello mush sandwich was 8 bucks, in standing with the lunch time rates, maybe a tad lower. The serving wench was friendly but very very busy. Maybe this restaurant wasn't used to such a crowd, but the time from the order to the mouth was longer than it should have been. Will I go back? Yup. Maybe not for lunch as there are too many other better choices in the area, but I will try out a happy hour there. Yup I will.
