    Great Place for Sunday Brunch!

    Just had brunch there. They had the windows open to the sidewalk, but inside, it was still quite cool on such a warm day. Brunch entrees are $12-15 and include your choice of fresh squeezed juice, mimosa or bloody mary. Coffee was $3, very good, but why do places always give you nonfat milk as creamer? half and half or cream please.. They have excellent french bread served with butter. They give you still and sparkling water in refillable bottles, free of charge. There was no wait, yet they were fairly full. Despite the EV / Union Square location, the crowd seemed more Midtown or Murray Hill. The atmosphere was non-threatening and non-rushed. The food was quite good as well. I will definitely be back.

    Unpretentious pub atmosphere

    I sat at a table near the window with a friend last week at The Smith. It is totally good glorified pub fare. We both had a steak with crispy fries and a frosty beer. We had a blast. The tunes were cool and the waiter was attentive and sweet. There is a photo booth in the basement and a little surprise hidden in a hole in the wall. OH MY! Its a fun place. Its not trying to be something its not. Its fun and downtown. Enjoy!

    Glorified Over-Priced Diner Food

    The food choices were boring, nothing remarkable you can't get for less $ someplace else that has better food and a less fake atmosphere. It's all this "new american" food that has very little character: it's basically glorified diner food! I found myself looking at the menu and thinking, I could have gone to a burger joint and gotten a cheaper, better burger - I can go to Applebees if I wanted to eat half this boring food. If you have to eat here, and have money to burn it's not terrible. But if you are looking for really good food and a non-yuppy, non-trying way too hard to be a hip downtown eatery, go someplace else!

    Not NYC

    With all the flipped collars and backwards baseball caps, you wouldn't guess you're in NYC. In fact, the best way to describe this place is to say it's the coolest restaurant from the suburbs. That said, take the above as a positive comment. It's impersonal and sort of looks like a chain restaurant - which can be a nice change of pace. And they have ample portions. They even give you a refilled bottle of sparkling water for free, which is cool. The brunch options are pretty solid, with the cheese grits and cheddar biscuit over the top in a good way. It's sort of like a swanky chain restaurant populated with frat types.

    Love it!

    This is pretty much my favorite restaurant. Everything on the menu is amazing. There really is not one thing I don't love (except maybe the Salmon, but I don't ever eat salmon!!!). DO NOT listen to Sue below, the chips with the blue cheese are awesome and are a must try!!! You will not be disappointed. Sue got it totally wrong...apparently she doesn't appreciate great food. Some other favorites of mine are the tomato soup, mac n cheese and the braised short ribs!!!! Their drinks are amazing too. Oh, and you MUST go for sunday brunch. The sugar cured bacon is not to be missed!!!!!!!!!

    Casual in the best sense of the word

    I like all kinds of atmospheres (trendy, upscale, casual and sometimes cheap.) My boyfriend doesn't. It's hard for him to feel comfortable in in fine dining or chic-type places. So we had a great time here. The black and light wood decor was notable but not snoby, the bartender, host and waiter were really nice but not sugary or fake (the waiters cool uniforms sum up their attitude - dark jeans and black t-shirt with the stylized restaurant logo on it) , and the food came quickly. The tap beer selection was lean but surprisingly exotic, the burger was really flavorful and cooked perfectly medium, the fried green tomato topped with mozzerella was baked with the best tomato sauce I've had in a while and the Pink Pussy Cat dessert had an amazing red velvet cake surprise under not too sweet strawberry ice cream and whip cream. The only reason i rated the food a little lower than perfect was because of the crab hush puppies with garlic aoli. They were salty, bland and heavy and the aoli was unflavorful and salty as well. Anyway overall it was pretty awesome. Def. one of the best in the neighborhood - casual and friendly yet visually and culinaraly above average.

    Pretty Good

    Overall, pretty good experience...good food, nice atmosphere, decent service. BUT do not try the warm potato chips with blue cheese! It's just a bag of potato chips with blue cheese on top thrown into a big bowl & heated, totally not work $6! Steak & steak salad was great though! Would probably come here again when in the area.
