Went looking for a classic salt cured Smithfield ham and found it here. My wife had the honey cured ham on chibatta and I had the country ham on chibatta, both with cheddar cheese. Our side dish of choice was the macaroni and cheese with Smithfield bacon pieces. We shared both sandwiches to compare. The country ham (Smithfield) had more... More

Super food, great peanut selection and lots of gifts for pig collectors. Food is good! Love the tomato basil soup, Mac and cheese and Terri's chicken salad. My favorite sandwich is the Wharf Hill. Great microbrews on tap too. Management is exceptional and staff is accommodating- kitchen staff wave and speak to customers as the kitchen is open view.

We have never been to area but the friends we were visiting recommended Taste of Smithfield, so we all went. We sat outside as it was a beautiful day. The couches were comfy. We started out with the cheese fries, and they were really good. The rest of the food was pretty standard. The waiter said we "had to try... More

It isn't too far, but takes me about 35 minutes to get there, so I don't go often, but it is a treat when I do. I love that you can sample their nut collection at the restaurant/store. It always translates to me getting exactly what I want. Also, I love their chicken salad for lunch or dinner. It is... More

Taste of Smithfield is located in quaint Downtown Smithfield. It is half diner, and half gift shop. You will find it located on the same street as many interesting other gift shops, boutiques and antique stores. The food is good but I personally prefer eating down the road a ways at the Smithfield Inn. However, Taste of Smithfield has a... More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting a friend. This little gem represents what Smithfield is all about, ham and peanuts. The menu included many options to suit all tastes. Our waiter was very nice and helpful. My chicken salad sandwich on sundried tomato foccacia bread with tomato basil soup was delicious, well-seasoned and satisfying. After lunch we shopped in the...

This place is awesome. It accommodates food allergies. The beer on tap and the food are delicious. The peanut store products are available too.

I was really expecting a bunch of foo-foo "gourmet" items at high prices. Man was I wrong. Good ol' stick to your ribs food for breakfast, lunch or dinner at decent prices. Down home stuff like pork chops and eggs, Smithfield Sampler, or Eggs Benny for breakfast, and I still haven't tried anything else besides the Cuban for dinner, it's... More
