Quick stop and good eats. We've been here a few times for breakfast and early lunches. Service is always friendly and the prices are family friendly. Meals are delicious. Seriously comfort food like grandma used to make.

Fish and chips were wonderful. Steak sandwich also great. The service was very good. Clean family atmosphere. When we drove past at 1000 there was not a parking spot to be had. Around 1300 no problems. Highly recommend. Prices reasonable.

We stopped by on the weekend on our way to an event. The service was quick and the breakfast was comfort food type but not anything fancy if that is what you're expecting. Our food tasted fine and my husband especially liked the pancakes; not as fluffy and dense. Coffee not very good.

We've eaten here on many occasions and each time the meal is very good. The breakfasts are amazing and well cooked. It can get a bit loud and very crowded during the after church crowd on Sunday mornings, but it thins out quickly. The service has always been good, as well!

Vacations in Va Beach came to Smithfield after lunch. About 2 pm place was almost empty and we waited but nobody came to seat us.

Longtime locally owned favorite. A good place for a full country breakfast or home-style comfort food anytime of the day. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the prices reasonable.

Ok, so it's not Ruth's Chris, or Sullivans, but you know what? It's still great! I love this place! I miss Angelos (but love the new firehouse) and this is the replacement. Same owners! Takes me back to my younger days in Hampton and Sammy and Nick's, Sammy and Angelo's or Sam and Steves, or..... whoever!!! It's a great place... More

Lots of local folks seem to go here. We have stopped by here for the past three years on a Sunday morning for breakfast while visiting our son in Suffolk. I like this place, they give you a lot of food for a very reasonable price. The wait staff is very friendly and provide great quality service. The food is... More

The staff was very friendly. We were trying to read the specials board and someone came right over to help. Our meals were very good and very filling. My husband even commented he was glad we went there instead of fast food.
