Overall, food was good. Potato salad just a little dry, maybe sitting around too long without stirring. Good service, clean establishment

Banana pudding has always frustrated me at this place , it's just jello banana pudding with wafers --- NO Bananas!

We stopped here to have lunch on the way back from Myrtle Beach. I wanted some chicken barbecue and ended up getting fried instead but it was still good.

Food is served hot and is definitely tasty with every bite. We get the combo plate and you can ask for double fries instead of two sides if you wish. Refreshing sweet tea. Lots of refills.

My husband and I eat at Smithfield's often...we love the baked beans with the b-b-q in them, the slaw taste like fresh made. the chicken is crispy and the bbq cooked just right, not too spicy or hot.

We tried the combo platter (fried chicken & barbeque with choice of cole slaw, baked beans, or brunswick stew) and everything was delicious. The southern sweet tea was awesome! Staff was friendly and even though you order at the counter and then sit down, they came by our table often to refill our iced tea. Clean and pleasant restaurant.
