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.

Best place to stop for food if your in smithville. The food is very well prepared and the staff are extremely helpful. The crab dip is excellent. They get good lobsters too. The inn has a good variety of beer and a vast wine and whiskey selection.

We've visited the Smithville Inn countless times including having our Daughters Wedding there and it's been spectacular every time. Can't beat the Summer $20 Friday Night Lobster Special. No matter what you order, you're almost guaranteed a delicious fresh meal. The staff treats you like family with special accolades to Laura, Nick and Hank. Tony (Owner) is always available on...

We were invited to a nephew's wedding at the Inn. The wedding was on the patio in the rear of the building. There was acocktail hour then the reception upstairs. Everything was clean and well kept. Service was beyond excellent. Food was great. We really enjoyed the inn.

We had a cheer banquet here. It was served as a buffet. The food was good and service were excellent. The banquet room was clean and set up nicely. The only thing is parking as the valet was closed.

We visited on a Wednesday evening in March, and there was a nice crowd inside. Smithville is charming, and the decor is worth a step inside, but I don't recommend much more than a pint of ale. Edamame dumplings (appetizer) were quite nice, but it stopped there. The corn chowder was not seasoned well and there were lumps of flour.... More
