My wife and I took the ferry over to Smithfield yesterday (Aug 24) and we wound up at the Smithfield Inn for lunch. We have been here several times before and it never disappoints. Loads of outdoor and indoor seating available. After a long hot spell we were happy to enjoy the indoor seating in the tavern area. Our server... More

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
