Went for breakfast here last fall (2013) and the food was wonderful. Unfortunately, this spring went during the week and they don't serve breakfast on week days. Did go to the bar for a drink before a play and had some lovely Scotch (Bowmore 12 year).

Strong emphasis on meat so don't bother if you're vegetarian. They do an excellent job with meat and simple vegetables. Stick with the simpler dishes. Funky but fun atmosphere. Outdoor seating is nice in the summer.

Service price and atmosphere seemed about average....haven't eaten there prior so don't know much about the rest of the entries....my suggestion is only for the eggs benedict....the hollandaise sauce was good but lacking in amount...not really enough....so if ordered and not to your satisfaction send it back for more...if not they will charge $2 for a small cream server of...

Smithfields is amazing, I love the food, the atmosphere, and the no nonsense service. Great for kids and adults, and anybody else. They are flexible and have the best food in Ashland. There are veggie options, awesome sides(bacon braised collard greens, o my gosh), and steak to die for. The green pepper corn sauce is fantastic and sometimes I get... More

We had hesitated going here because we heard it was mainly for carnivores, and if you want something besides meat you have to order a la carte. Well, we finally went, and it lived up to our expectations. The former delightful French restaurant had turned into a second-rate restaurant with sticky floors, no table cloths (sticky tables). The clientele had... More

After a fairly fancy meal the night before, we had some wonderful comfort food at Smithfields. I had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. I nearly licked my plate, it was so good. I couldn't stop saying, "mmmm"! My husband had a steak. He just kept saying how good it was. We waddled out of there full and... More

Came in early for our reservation, were seated at the bar. Great atmosphere, cordial bartender, attentive staff. Seated at a nice table. Great waiter helped us with specials, and the food was fabulous. This place is doing it right. We'll be back.

We had been told that this restaurant had very good steaks, and we did find lots of meat entrees on the menu. However, I would rate the quality and presentation as average. Also, no side dishes accompanied the entree unless you ordered one separately.
