This is by far our favorite restaurant in the Smithfield area. The food is excellent, wait staff generally knowledgeable and accommodating if you have a special request. The she-crab soup is, in our opinion, the best in Hampton Roads!

We started with a soup course. It was quite tasty. We then progressed to a salad and sandwich. Both of them were good but we're not outstanding or remarkable in any way. The wait staff is very professional and the service is good. The bar and bartender were exceptional. All in all a nice place to eat but not a... More

The meals are. Always consistently good. It would be nice if the menu had more periodic updates. Specials could be more seasonal favorites. But the best part is the home town regulars that you run into. It's always fun and the drinks are great!

Lunch with family was wonderful! The shrimp and grits were absolutely delicious!! Beautifully plated and flavorful. One family member had the fish and chips. Lightly battered and crisp. Very generous portions. Deserts were delicious. Favorite was the red velvet cheesecake. Decor was so lovely. Wait staff very friendly!!

Roadtrip trip on a bonus 70 degree February day. Started off at Smithfield Inn. Lovely Main Street building with Forest Green awnings set the scene for a step back in time and a delicious lunch. Pork was the star of our meal. I had been dreaming of the salty ham on sweet potato rolls and each bit was a treat.... More

We have dined here many times. While it is expensive,the food is great. Freshness is the hallmark here. Service is always good. Hint: Eat in the tavern section. Have a little "Easier"menu.
