The hotel itself is an interesting old building renovated in a unique and creative way. The restaurant is comfortable and cheerful with a friendly staff and happy hour specials. Go. You will enjoy.

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving Day Buffet. Normally I am not a fan of Buffets, and this is not Smyth's typical method of serving, but for Thanksgiving it was ideal. It was a true feast and everything was delicious . Also, the service was superb; from the valet parking to the wait staff. Living in Missouri, I may not get to... More

Returned after a 2 year hiatus. I was very pleased to see that even with the new chef, the quality of food and overall experience was just as good as always. I recommend this restaurant.

We loved discovering Smyth for a date night dinner. We had previously only enjoyed breakfast here after a night at the Iron Horse Inn. We made a reservation through Open Table for a 6 PM table which yielded us 1000 Open Table points! We had a small plates dinner that consisted of a cheese board(three types of cheese:sheep, goat, cow),... More

My husband and I ate at Smyth twice during our stay. For dinner we had the chicken liver terrine which was very good, the duck breast which had a great flavor but was a bit chewy, and the highlight was the rabbit meatballs. They had an excellent sauce with a smoky finish. We also went to Smyth for their Sunday... More

It was difficult to know what to make of this restaurant. The dining room and bar had a heavy industrial feel to it due to the nature of the building and its design. Noise tended to travel due to no carpeting or wall hangings to absorb the sound. Due to a reservation at late notice, my wife and I were... More

Great variety for lunch. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. I ordered the chicken sandwich & chips which were very satisfying. Others at my table ordered the kale Caesar salad to which I had food envy. Also, another order the perch po'boy which I also wanted to steal. A bit pricey for lunch but the food is delicious.

Low lit atmosphere. Very good food. A little pricey, but overall you'll be satisfied. They have special events often that are a must attend.
