We had the most enjoyable lunch here! Great food and service. Nice break from the heat. And the shop is the best! Beware of the dog bones they sell, though - they are cooked and will splinter and harm dogs.

That was not our eating experience at Smithfield. It looks as if the management is offering an apology and an offer to try their food again. The patrons may have had their order "drop through the cracks." I'd encourage the... More
