Description: Old world charm meets new world hospitality in this lovely lakeside landmark. A longtime locals favorite serving award winning classic continental cuisine with a modern flair. The restaurant, resurrected from an uncertain future in 1997 by the combined efforts of the Coppola & Bushar families, has since reclaimed its spot among the favorite dining locations in the Atlantic City area.

I'll start with kudos to Steph who made us the most spectacular drinks we've ever had (the French Pear was incredible!) The restaurant and bar are charming old England style. The food was perfect. The Pot Pie is enough for two and the most wonderful dish I've eaten at a restaurant in a long time. We were there off season,... More

Dinner at the Smithville Inn was by far the best place we ate in Galloway. The Friday night lobster special was superb, Steph the bartender was accommodating, offered his insights on favorites but not too much so. Everything about he Inn was perfection, from the food to the service to the ambience. Wish I lived closer!

Have always had a good meal at this establishment. Staff friendlly and courteous, food prepared as we like. Enjoyed their friday night lobster special and the place was packed, good to see! There was a piano player on Friday evening that was to be enjoyed while we were dining. Disappointed in the other patrons there at the same time as... More

We were 4 for lunch, 2 chicken pot pies, 1 arrived beautifully baked & hot , the other under baked & cold in the Center, 1 tilapia minuscule in size, frozen and... More

Three of us had dinner here on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy and bustling. It has a nice ambience. The lighting and noise level is very comfortable. Spacing between tables is very adequate. Table tops are not cramped. As to the food, it is pretty good. I had the prime rib which was just huge. Too much for... More

We took a friend to celebrate her birthday. It was a girls day out to relax and it was a sure pleasure to sit and have a nice lunch. We had great service and the food was great. A sure repeat

I was last here a few years ago, and standards have not changed. Warm welcome, good table, very pleasant staff and a nice lunch. It was fairly busy...always a good sign!

Had a delicious Sunday Brunch at The Historic Smithville Inn the first Sunday in August. We didn't have a reservation (they are suggested) as we were driving down from NY that morning and had no idea what traffic would be like. They were able to accommodate us without a problem. They had both breakfast and lunch foods. There were Warm... More

Dinner was nice at the bar. Service from the bartender was excellent. Food was good, not exceptional. They selected a nice wine for us. Colonial atmosphere was very nice.

Even when there are many visitors, the Smithville Inn manages to serve a nice dinner in a great location. The shoppes surrounding the restaurant help to make this a destination. My granddaughter,8, even loved the diversity. Great food plus other attractions make this a good place. To spend a few hours shopping followed by an excellent dinner.
