We have had dinner a few times and it was very good so we tried the Sunday brunch and it did not disappoint! Every thing you could want for breakfast or lunch. It was all fresh hot and excellent! It seemed like they had even more items then they describe on thier menu.

They had a pretty good lunch menu, I got the crab cake sandwich, not the best but I'd go there again and try something else. Wait staff was great, very attentive and quick!

I was at your restaurant the last time in Oct, 2016, for a romantic dinner. Was expecting a dimly lit dining room providing ambience, and being seated at a quiet table in a corner for two on the upper level.. Instead, the DR was brightly lit, we were seated in the lower level, at a table for 5 very close... More

Even though it wasn't a holiday and it was the slow season you will still need a reservation on Saturday night. Since we were hungry we went t the bar to eat. The bar was noisy but the food was worth it. My wife had the Flat Iron Steak and I had the Sausage and Chicken Pasta Aioli. Both were... More

We have brunch at the Smithville Inn every couple of years and it always leaves us wishing we lived nearer to this gem. Decor is classy but cozy, service is friendly and very attentive, and the food is very good. I'll list everything I can remember: salads: mesclun mix and Caesar with lots of toppings, antipasto, tomatoes and mozzarella, marinated... More

I had been here years ago and remember it being outstanding traditional american fare. On this visit it was apparently fly season and they were buzzing about throughout our meal. The food was fair but extremely expensive. The server kept apologizing for the flies but I really wasn't happy to have to keep shooing them off of my food.

Made my first stop for the Sunday Brunch. Couldn't ask for anything better. The service was top notch, a WIDE variety of both breakfast and lunch offerings. A ham and roast beef carving station, pastries, the usual breakfast fare were all prepared fantastically. Maybe a little on the pricey side, but well worth it

Thank SNJ08203

Old world charm meets new world hospitality in this lovely lakeside landmark. A longtime locals favorite serving award winning classic continental cuisine with a modern flair. The restaurant, resurrected from an uncertain future in 1997 by the combined efforts of the Coppola & Bushar families, has since reclaimed its spot among the favorite dining locations in the Atlantic City area.
