Smithfield's is our favoite dining spot in Ashland for brunch, dinner or just a good cocktail at their bar. The ambience is amazing inside and out in the summer, definitely make reservations and try everything on the menu. Steaks are made to order, come with amazing encrusting or toppings and the brisket seems to put smiles on everyone's face. I... More

A great place to order meat dishes (steaks, prime rib, etc.) Great service, highly creative mixed drinks but a busy restaurant. I would recommend making a reservation. Casual dress. They make a bernaise and peppercorn sauce for meat dishes that are fantastic. The skirt steak was great and cooked perfectly.

Great "meat-centric" dishes. We had the hangar steak and it was cooked to perfection. They offer a homemade peppercorn or bernaise sauce but it was not needed. Fun mixed cocktails, homemade gelato and sorbets. Can be crowded so make a reservation.

They bill themselves as "meat-centric," and that's no lie. I had a marvelous well-smoked fork-tender brisket, and the whole meal was superb from starters to dessert. Incredibly warm and friendly service from (I assume) the owner, and the place just had a great vibe.

Wife and I dined prior to theater last week and were underwhelmed. Mediocre service typical of Ashland. Ordered a grilled romaine salad to share and the server arrived with the salad on a single plate and was surprised when we asked for another plate so we could divide the salad. It seemed she expected us to use the bread plate(s)... More

Great casual steakhouse ambiance, with a great menu. Unfortunately, if you are going to charge those prices for steak, the guys on the grill need to know how achieve the temperature you request. They didn't. Hits all the superficial trendy bells and whistles of a modern meat restaurant, but needs some gravitas in the kitchen to match even middle-of-the-road steakhouses... More

Visited on a Sunday evening at 8 PM to avoid the pre-theatre crowd. Based on previous reviews, had our hearts set on some of the specials - bone marrow, pork belly, lamb porterhouse, etc. Due to the Sunday brunch, all were sold out. Given the design of the principal dining space, yes, it is noisy, and as the autumn progresses... More

helpful and amusing wait staff, clean and contemporary surroundings with a nice view out the window. Loved the chalkboard wall with all the information on meat cuts, etc. Went with 5 others, all were pleased with the flavors and presentation of their dinners. Only glitch was that one person's order had not been put in, so she had to wait... More

Best real food I've had in a long time! This is a restaurant for meat lovers. The waiter told us that all meat is sources with 100 miles of Ashland and is all organic. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Items from steak tartar that was fresh and bone marrow that was delectable. Lamb steak, pork belly duck confit were all... More
