As hard as it may be to believe, the food in this restaurant has gotten better over time. Food has always been delectable but the game has been improved.

This was a great way to end a day with a friend taking some photos. I had the Cuban sandwich, and we split an appetizer order of pimento cheese. Everything was delicious!

Probably the best salad I've ever had anywhere. Delicious and fresh, the other menu items looked great, as well. Have to have ham while in Smithfield!

Smithfield is a quaint southern town and this restaurant fits in with the downtown area. As you would expect, Smithfield being famous for their pork products, there were plenty of selections on the menu in this category. I had the barbecued pulled pork sandwich which...More

I had their crab cake and it was excellent... also collards! Yum. My hubby had the special pulled pork and raved about it. Enjoyed shopping in their little store as well. And great and charming service. We recommend.

If you don't mind playing tourist, and we don't, then you must eat here. Everything Smithfield for food or shopping. They had great sales on hams at the time too. Tons of peanut selections. Quaint place. Food was great.
