THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Crocodile Cafe Restaurant Review

: The Crocodile Café is usually bustling---like owners Bob and Gregg Smith's Pasadena fine-dining restaurants Parkway Grill and Arroyo Chop House, as well as their moderately-priced Smitty's Grill. Is the food worth the wait during peak dinner hours? Probably not. But if you come at an off-time---a late lunch, an early dinner---you'll have less competition for the inexpensive salads, pastas and pizzas. Weather permitting, skip the bright, bustling interior (replete with open kitchen) and sit on the patio.
