“Perfect little side trip”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Slip on down to Smithfield, Va and there you will find a wonderful little town with lots of unique shops to explore. Be sure to have lunch or dinner down by the river. You will find The Smithfield Station. Lunch is wonderful, reasonably price and some of the BEST Hatteras style clam chowder you can find anywhere!! :)

“Love this place”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Love the atmosphere of this place, including the lodge we stayed in for the weekend where our dinner for 2 was included. Service was fantastic for dinner and breakfast. Lots of choices, enjoyed it greatly.

“Good lunch with beautiful view”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We visited Smithfield in early November with our children who live in Richmond. The town is fun and interesting, and the restaurant at The Station made the visit perfect. The service was effecient and timely. The food was good, and the view can't be beat. I took our little grandson down onto the dock while we were waiting for lunch.
Overall, a great lunch experience!

“Good Food & Nice View”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The food was excellent from the appetizers to the meal and the view cannot be beat. There's glass all the way around 3 walls of the restaurant overlooking the marina. The hushpuppies are a must when you eat there!
