I have booked my wedding and reception here because I just love this place. It's simple yet elegant. The bar when you walk in is so cool looking. Their food is great as well is the staff. Its a wonderful restaurant. The banquet room is great for a small wedding and there is a giant fire place. I can't wait... More

Set in Historic Smithville, this restaurant draws quite a crowd on weekends. We visited on Tuesday night, when they are quite a bit slower. The inside of the restaurant is very quaint. The large span of windows provides an excellent view of the town of Smithville. There is no "bad" seat in this restaurant. Food is good, service is good.... More

The food and atmosphere is great. This is the 2nd time me and my coworkers have been here and can say that both times we were all satisfied with the service and the food. They have a fantastic selection of craft beers, which as geologists we love. However, both times we have been here there have been issues with getting... More

The food and atmosphere is great. Also, the staff & the music. We enjoy going there every year, especially for our anniversary & the Irish Fest. Also, Christmas.

I am often here for business and family stops. In the historic Smithville so a sure stop for a bite to eat. A large menu with many things for every food fancy. Big bar and they have put thought into beer selection including some craft beer. The have a few different rooms of you are thinking of a private party.

Stopped in for some comfort food after shopping in the village. We both had burgers mine with chips and spouses' with fries a glass of wine and a beer. Delicious and we timed it right before the crowds on a glorious fall Sunday. Good food and good value. It was a tough decision because the soups looked delicious.

The staff was very accommodating. Our grandson has a nut allergy, and they couldn't be more helpful. Our food was great. The prices were very reasonable.

Both times we visited Smithville we came to this bar. It is a friendly place to watch/meet others. We sat at the bar to get a good feel for the place! I had a spicy chicken salad which I loved and my partner had a California burger which really was great too. 2 pints of beer and then we went... More
