What do Pittsburghers past and present think of Smithfield?

I've only been to the Smithfield Cafe after the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Then, it's been a mob, packed to the gills, with barely enough space for the band to play. The food, too, has not been great–it's been more of a "green beer" cuisine than traditional Irish fare.
 
But that's really no indication of what it's like at other times, and I wouldn't claim to know what it's really like.

I eat breakfast there about once a month.  It is above average, with quick service.  How can you spoil breakfast (bacon and eggs and toast?)
