“Excellent Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

The filet mignon came exactly as ordered -- a true medium rare, which I "rarely" find in other area restaurants. Their menu (www.smedlapssmithy.com/Menu.html) mentions their 1,800°F broiler... FYI when ordering steak. My two side dishes were both excellent and recommended by our detailed-oriented server -- Smedlap's potatoes and green beans with ham. The décor was attractive and the music was even better.

“Nice Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Had a nice experience there tonight. We started off with the Wisconsin Cheese soup. It was VERY thick and quite tasty. My wife had a caesar salad and I had the daily special (steak) that was listed for $9.99. She enjoyed the salad and said it was quite fresh. The steak I received was larger than I expected for the price. It was done the way I like it and I was very satisfied. After reading other reviews earlier today, I was curious to see how the service would be. It turned out to be very good! The waitress was training someone new and they were very fast, friendly and attentive. We will go back!

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The restaurant was very crowded, however, the service was good, the waitiress was excellent. The food was served hot and our meal was excellent. The atmosphere was great and restaurant was warm, related to fact that it was cold outside. I definately recommend this to anyone.

“Don't even bother going here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Food was terrible. Have been there a few times in the past with hopes that it will get better... and I'm always disappointed. If you like crappy food served by a waitstaff who doesn't care and decor that looks like its never been dusted with Christmas lights that have been up for years, then this place might be for you. If you prefer a good experience with good, clean food and a wait staff who are professional, then for the love of Pete GO SOMEPLACE ELSE! TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE, TERRIBLE FOOD, DIRTY ATMOSPHERE, RUDE WAITSTAFF! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR HARD EARNED MONEY!!!
