20 oz bone-in Ribeye was fantastic, and the Walleye was delicious as well. I could have had 10 orders of the mushroom fricassee. We will be back!

The Service was very good and the menu was interesting. We were a group of 13 that ordered many menu items and everyone seemed to like their meal. The portions were generous.

Have had dinner at Smyth before and the meal was exceptional. Have also visited the bar several times...very inventive cocktail menu! NYE was great...service was wonderful, the prix fixe meal was very good, and the DJ played great music. Would definitely ring in the NY again at Iron Horse!

The atmosphere in this restaurant isn't so great, bit the food is excellent. Steaks, seafood, salads, and desserts are all prepared with perfection. The wine list isn't lengthy, but the choices are excellent. If you don't mind a restaurant with a darker, bar-like atmosphere, you will enjoy this restaurant. Evidentially, they have a chef who knows his stuff,

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
