They are closed, unfortunately; hopefully temporarily!

Great place! Small town place, but great folks and food. Loved eating there with or without a Groupon. But it closed as of about 12-31-14 or 1-1-15 due to illness of owner. Will just have to ring the place to see if he gets it back open--I surely do hope so! Owner of neighboring business told me... read more

Said that he was new at this and that he has been told two different things about them being open. When I asked to speak to a Manager he said one wasn't working.When I made the... More

We make it to Smedlaps a couple of times a year and are never disappointed. Their steaks are great as is the raspberry chicken. The salad is served family style with warm fresh rolls. The atmosphere is the best in the area with the old brick smithy shop offering unbeatable ambiance. The sliding board from the loft on the second... More

You don't have to dress up super fancy, but it is a better step from the casual dinning. The food is wonderful! I have tried several of their dishes and I have yet to be disappointed. Wait staff take their job serious and do great. Love the décor!!!!

Just a average place to eat. Sometimes steak is good other times too tuff to eat. Same with salad they have start using spring salad mixture and it is sometimes slimey, much better when they used just plain lettuce. Older lady is a very good waitress.

Ack! You couldn't pay me to eat here again. I've been several times, as it was a great restaurant years ago.. but I'm not sure what happened. The food is usually decent, the downfall is the staff/service and the cleanliness - both are so poor that decent food isn't worth it. There is a middle aged woman server (or bartender?... More

No late night anything, they kick their customers out at 9 pm. Bartender leaves at the exact minute the place closes. The Rude cook will flip the lights on, and cut off your whole dinner, Rude! This place had ( health violations in May!

I met a friend for lunch. There was one staffer and he was behind the bar. He said to sit wherever I'd like and he'd be right with me." Oh dear," I thought. Well, he did come right over and brought me a Coke. The bench seat of the booth I'd chosen was a bid dilapidated and I looked across... More

Average food, slow getting our food but our server was very friendly. The owner however is rude, loud and obnoxious. My friend asked to speak to the owner to ask a question about a "policy" and the man seemed to want to make a scene in his own establishment. For this reason alone we will never go back.
