“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stopped here for lunch. The menu was great. I had the crab cakes with fried green tomatoes. Delicious! Other people had the soft shell crab sandwich and the spinach salad with chicken. All were beautifully presented and tasty. A charming historic place, would love to go back and spend more time.

Stopped in for lunch and what a great lunch we had. The ham buns as an appetizer were really good. The seafood gumbo was very wonderful. The shrimp and grits is a must as the grits were the best I had ever had. Prices were very fair, the waiter was really friendly, and the atmosphere was pleasant. A small town gem.

We had the best crab cakes we have ever had here today. Only problem is that they spoiled us for any other, seriously. Great atmosphere, great ambiance, small town that has maintained its charm without sprawl-induced blight. Well worth a visit, and this is the place to stay (and eat).

Our recent stay at Smithfield Inn was a pleasant one - nice room, good food and excellent customer service. Only negative was the outside of the property - torn carpet at the front entrance and twigs and leaves along the walkways and in the side courtyard. A little attention, sweeping and cleanup would only add to the charm of this Inn. We stayed in the two bedroom Dashiel/Smith suite in the Garden House that is located to the side of the main inn and faces the courtyard. Our room was quiet and had nice amenities that included some bottled water and cans of soda. We ate dinner early in the bar area (small dining room opens at 5:30pm) and we had the option of ordering off the bar and dining room menus. Food was very good but salad did not come with your meal and was priced seperate and most of the main entrees came with asparagus or warmed bacon/potato salad (not too many vegetable options). Check the menu on their website before you visit so you will have an idea about pricing and what they serve. Made to order breakfast is included with your stay and there were different options (eggs, omelets, fruit etc) to choose from. Don't forget to order the ham biscuits which they are famous for - they were really good!

We were in the town of Smithfiels for a wedding and got to stay at the Inn. A few little glitches with the check in but the room was grand and the breakfast to die for. Staff was nice. Atmoshpere the best. If you are looking for a "One of a kind" place, this is the spot.

Quaint town with gorgeous old homes, lots of fun shops on main street, great walking trail easy to get to on foot from Smithfield inn. The inn is conveniently located downtown. Fantastic crab cakes for lunch and made to order breakfast that was absolutely wonderful. I liked the room with cozy fireplace, big bed and modern shower. Plenty of room. Restaurant staff was great, hotel staff was a bit elusive - not sure if I was there for change of shift or what but I had to go looking for a live person to get checked in. I did have a reservation and arrived late afternoon- minor point. Had a little mixup with double credit card billing but when I called it was taken care of promptly. All in all a fun woman's escape-will go back when I get the chance- maybe take my spouse next time too.

Room Tip: The Captain Mallory Todd room has a great fireplace/sitting area, very cozy, very romantic

My family rented the entire inn several years ago for two nights over the Thanksgiving holidays. We literally filled the hotel with family and close friends and the fun began. This historic inn gives whole new meaning to "Southern Hospitality!" We had comfy robes, a working fireplace, a well stocked fridge, fresh baked cookies daily and they even gathered pecans from the old tree and sent us home with a stash for Christmas baking. Far and away the highlight was the fine dining from the fabulous breakfasts to Thanksgiving dinner. I have never tasted country bacon so lean and crisp nor the array of menu choices and perfect presentation as during our visit. My sister and I loved the experience so much, we are spending Thanksgiving there again this Nov.

This inn is situated on main street in the most adorable town in VA. I liken it to Mayberry with fabulous little shops and boutiques up and down Main St. There is an art gallery, a tea shop with wonderful homemade goodies and fine boutiques all around. If you are in the area, Smithfield is a must and it simply doesn't get better than the Smithfield Inn.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
“He was a very valiant man who first ventured on eating oysters.” ~ James I Here’s one for the books. The Smithfield Inn, built in 1752, is older than The Alamo or even Independence Hall in Philadelphia. George Washington slept here (No really, he did.) Here’s the whole amazing story. At the time of groundbreaking, Smithfield’s bustling wharf harbor had become a popular destination for clipper ships bringing goods from the old world to the new. The reason? They could return loaded down with two new world delicacies—the hams and peanuts that have made Smithfield world famous. To serve these travelers and others coming over the main stagecoach route from Norfolk to Richmond and eventually steamboat and motorcar, the original residence was converted to an Inn and Tavern in 1759. Thus began over 250 years of southern hospitality and charm that still defines the “Old Inn on Main Street”. Notable changes along the way included raising the roof to a full second story in 1870, part of bringing the Inn back from disrepair after the Civil War, and a major renovation by the Sykes family in 1922, adding the long kitchen and dining room wing and enlarging the porch across the entire front. For 40 years the Sykes Inn was known for its signature home cooked meals and relaxed atmosphere. Today the owner of the Smithfield Inn, Smithfield Foods, welcome you to a new Smithfield Inn, beautifully renovated yet, as always, steeped in tradition and charm reminiscent of simpler times in the genteel old South. ... more   less
