Surprised at how nice it is. The bar area was popular with families as the food offerings are slightly more casual there. There was live music the night we were there ( a Sat). We sat in the main restaurant. White table cloths, yet we were dressed casually and did not feel out of place. The food was good. I... More

I had luncheon at the Smithfield Inn with a group of 10 friends. Out of the 10 people, only 3 of the lunches were edible. I had a meatball sub and it was to salty to eat! I had onion rings that had a tasty crust, but they were served cold and the onions used were old and tough. You... More

First of all, the Smithfield Inn is undoubtedly the oldest place in the USA where I have slept and the experience was quite positive, but the inn is old, dating to 1752, so let's take that into consideration. I stayed in the George Washington suite for two nights, mid- week and enjoyed it. The AC worked fine. The suite is... More

We stayed in the yellow house next to the big Inn. We had a charming 2nd floor room. And there was a living room downstairs that is meant to be shared by anyone staying in that house. There was nobody else there at the time and we had a lovely time visiting with friends who live nearby. It felt like... More

Ambiance, menu offerings, service, value, location, what's not to like? We went with the signature dish, She Crab Soup, and a pair of small Smithfield country ham rolls. One of our party went for the Fried Green Tomato BLT & raved about it. The She Crab Soup is packed with strands of crab, rich, savory, (Don't judge me) bowl licking... More

The good: The food. Appetizers and entrees all really tasty. The crowd - seemed to be a lot of locals that were really enjoying themselves. The bad: the drinks - lemon drop martinis were so sugary sweet we sent them back, and cosmos so strong that they were (almost) undrinkable.The ugly: Service. The hostess who greeted us seemed harried, no... More

Had an excellent lunch on a weekday. The service was superb along with a very good meal. Worth the trip from across the James. The lunch specials are a real value. Haven't stayed there, but it is a great location

Made reservations at the Smithfield Inn Restaurant for 4 over a week ago. Special occasion with friends visiting from out of town. Was taken by the hostess to a small table in the corner of a very crowded, loud bar. Asked the hostess for a table in the dining room where we had requested reservations. She said they had shifted...
