Food was good and the sauce on the table was great but for 9 bucks a plate they need to beef up the portions a bit. Literally like one small scoop of tater salad and beans next to maybe 4 oz of pig. Fried chicken was pretty good also not overly special but not bad.

Ate here at the recommendation of my hotel. The chicken was hot, juicy, and flavorful. The pulled pork was tasty and tender. The sides and the shrimp needs help. The staff was great and your tea glass was never empty. Would probably eat there again but would order different items next time.

Stopped here with our youth group and the food was not only delicious but came out fast. The customer experience was fenominal. The wait staff is very respectful and will not let you stand up for anything. They bring your food to the table and bring refills straight from the pitcher. Great experience all around!!!!!!!!!!

The food and service are good but expensive. I would like to eat there more. But they need to send out coupons more often.

We ate at Smithfield's while passing through off the interstate. The portion sizes were small for what you pay. My husband ordered a BBQ platter and the amount was small and very disappointing. I brought this to the manager's attention and she brought him more. The BBQ and tea were both awful. The restaurant was empty on a Friday evening... More

Wonderful place to get Southern fried chicken and BBQ! Great place to stop for lunch or dinner!! I also love the shrimp basket. The sweet tea is the best in the county!

Love the pork barbecue platter! Generous portions and sides. Service is friendly and fast. My favorite place to stop for lunch on the way to or from the NC coast (Ocean Isle Beach).

The manager was super helpful in preparing the meals and ensure there was no cross contamination between shrimp and the BBQ my brother in law ordered. There were... More

We stopped here on the way home from the beach. The bar-b-q was hot and wonderful. The tea, as good as we have ever had. We will stop here again. Give this restaurant a try.
