“What a Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

If you like meat...
All kinds of meat, then you are in for a treat.
Smithfield's serves rabbit, duck, pork, lamb, chicken, beef, veal,
everything.
It is a meat centered restaurant with fabulous food.
The prices are steep.
Dinner for four, with wine can run $200-$300.
However, you will walk away well satisfied.

“Good to meat you, oh yeh.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Excellent restaurant in downtown.
Friendly staff who know their menu and wine list well.
We had munchies (!) and ribeye followed by dessert and felt comfortable afterwards.
Would certainly not miss this out if we return to Ashland.

“vegans stay home... but wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

This relatively new restaurant in Ashland, OR adds yet again another great option to the already-competitive dining scene in this wonderful little theater town. It is a celebration of meat and fish--in the case of the former, locally sourced, free range, no antibiotics (etc.); in the case of the latter, fresh, responsibly caught, etc. We arrived early because we had a play (we made reservations), were promptly seated. The server was cheerful, helpful, and brisk without being rushed. My burger was enormous, and like no hamburger I've ever had (not just because of the size, either). My husband had fish and chips, and again, not your average fish-and-chips. A vegetarian would have options here (salads, etc.), but a vegan would struggle. Good pre-theater place, walkable.

“You won't be disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were lucky enough to try this restaurant on a recent trip to Ashland. I would highly recommend you give it a try. We started our meal with the bacon hush puppies with maple creme fraiche. Wonderful, we could have dipped nothing in the maple sauce and loved it! We also shared the heirloom tomato/watermelon starter with feta and balsamic vinegar. Absolutely yummy! One of our party had the lamb porterhouse, wonderful, one had New York strip, wonderful, filet, wonderful, hangar steak, again wonderful. All the meat is locally sourced. Service was delightful and the atmosphere terrific!
