My family met here for a birthday celebration. I chose the spot, as I had been here a few times in the past, and it was always elegant and the food perfectly prepared. They had just re-opened after being closed for renovations. Maybe we just hit on an off night...no one was being seated in the dining room, so we... More

We had tremendous Wings with friends. This is a special on Wednesday nights at 50Cents per wing with various sauce. A cup of She crab soup is also great with the wings. .

We are local and used to love going to the Inn until about six years ago we had the worst experience ever due to a waiter / sommelier that was beyond obnoxious and bad service. Hadn't been back since until recently and said waiter is long gone. They had great service despite it being filled to capacity and the food... More

I visited this restaurant with a large group of friends. We were seated immediately for lunch and our food and service was great. I recommend the Poohas Pasta and the Gumbo.

A group of seven ate together, so we sample across the menu and everyone was pleased with their choices. Crab cakes, chicken saltimbocca, salmon, beef tournedos, and Poogan Pasta were the entrée choices. Oysters Rockefeller, Cajun Fried Green Tomatoes were the appetizers. We were seated in what seemed like a parlor - it was quiet enough for the group to... More

We were staying at the inn to attend the annual 2015 Christmas Home Tour and we decided to eat dinner at the inn. Great staying there and being able to go downstairs to get a drink at their bar or sit comfortably in the William Rand Tavern and have dinner. We could order off the dining room menu OR the... More

Staying in Williamsburg and crossed the ferry just to come to the Smithfield Inn. Well worth the trip and a nice walk-around of the town. The service was very good and the food is excellent. The Bloody Mary is one of the best. As Smithfield is all about the Ham, I ordered the club sandwich and She crab soup and... More
