This is a staple in Owen County. It’s a family-owned business & the food is just good, old-fashioned southern cooking. The only complaint I have is the limited space. If you go on a Sunday, go early, because it’s a local favorite & they run...More
We were looking for a non-chain restaurant. The Smith House was recomended. We took our group of fourteen people and went in. The staff did everything possible to accomodate us. The service was excellent and the food was very good.
The restaurant has been reopened by the original family owners and that is a good thing. Food is good and consistent and the service is very good. Their operating hours are limited which is a drawback. But, the ship has been steadied and -- if...More

Recently took a group of 15 to have dinner in July 2014. Called ahead the week before and talked with the owner and made a request for broccoli casserole and strawberry pie. Have had both of these there before and both were great. Also the...More
