I was surprised to be told that only old folks order Smithwick's. I figured, when in Rome? Lol. Great staff and wonderful locals. Had a great time. (Summer 2013)

Dear Reviewer we must challenge you on this review as from the end of September each year we shorten our menu to suit winter slow down. We first of all do not serve steak sandwiches and have not served steak since the end of September. Due to the complaint received by you this could not have happened. We do not... More
