I've been to many weddings here over the years and was finally back for a reunion. This place is still as stunning as I remembered. It's a great place to celebrate any special occasion with great company. The staff here is extremely friendly, polite & professional. Hands down the best venue for any "important"'evening in the area. Keep in mind... More

We spent several hours walking around the Smithville complex of shops, and took a ride on their train. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and we ended our stay in Smithville by having lunch at the Smithville Inn. The Inn is lovely and we were seated in a dining room that had a view of the grounds. I ordered the... More

Food offerings are good. Pot pies, prime ribs, a number of specials. Nice wine list reasonably priced. Good service, old place charm, lots of private dining rooms. Hard to go there without seeing a wedding. Recommend.

My daughter took me to Sunday Brunch and I must say the food was delicious and abundant. There were so many choices and we were also there to survey the beauty of the Inn as she may be planning a wedding reception and wanted to see the grounds. The servers were very accommodating and the food delicious. We sat in... More

My daughters and i took my husband to Historic Smithville Inn. They have a Sunday Brunch. So we went for a Fathers Day outing. The brunch was very nice, we sat on the upper floor which i was glad because the floor where the buffet is set up is very noisy. The food was very good. The roast beef, gravy... More

Stayed in Old Smithville for a few days and had dinner at the Inn. Its a lovely historic (18th century) Inn with a nice menu. Dinner for two with drinks was only about $75, which I thought was a good value. Great way to spend an evening if staying in Historic Old Smithville. Would definately visit again. Only about 10...
