This was a perfect meal. Been wanting to come here for a while and had a foodie friend visiting from out of town so made reservations. Food and service did not disappoint. Their back patio is perfect for a summer night. Ribeye and pork chop were no joke and their Mac n cheese is on point.

Had a delicious dinner here for our 25th anniversary. I had the Wagyu ribeye and a London Fog, while my wife had the BLT salad and Mac & cheese with a drink called “She asked me to rum.” Everything consisted of high-quality ingredients prepared very well. The cocktails were on the small side, particularly for the price, but they were delicious! Outside seating was lovely.

The garden setting is lovely and the food is delicious. My husband had the brisket and I had the chicken. We ordered sides of roasted carrots and parsnips and mashed potatoes. All of it was extraordinary. The portions are large. We had our little dog with us and they were very accommodating. Our server brought him water. I highly recommend Smithfield’s for great food and excellent service.

Great time there. The food was amazing and the drinks were great. The bartender gave his recommendations on wine and food pairs and was spot on.

Every one there was friendly and made it a great experience.

A very nice place. My ribs were ok, although they seemed a bit overcooked and dry. It’s possible others would find them fine.

The macaroni and cheese side was great, but it’s hard to go wrong with cheese.

Was looking forward to a great night out first time in Ashland and for our 35th wedding anniversary but was very disappointed. I thought this was a high end restaurant but you couldn’t tell that by the food and especially not by the service. Our server took quite a long time to even acknowledge us and that was after I asked the Bartender if we would be waited on soon. When she finally did come to our table she didn’t even introduce herself or apologize for the delay. The only good service we got was from the Bartender. He was very attentive. Was looking forward to a seafood dinner but they were out of the one dish they offered and had to send back the cauliflower because it tasted like Mexican food when this was a steakhouse. We originally had reservations for another local restaurant and I guess we should have went with that one. Again, very disappointed.

Smithfield's never disappoints as their food and location is very enjoyable; however, I always think it is strange how stingy they are with bread on dishes that require bread (roasted bone marrow). When you have 4 bones worth of marrow to eat and they serve 3 tiny crustini, it is really out of proportion. We even asked for extra bread when we ordered because we knew about this and they only included 5. The meal really requires about 8 or so. You need to make a change.

Thanks for coming in! I'll be sure to speak with the chef about that and we will implement some bread changes. I hope you can join us again soon.

Service was quite good but food was a bit disappointing. I ordered pork loin and it looked amazing but cutting it was like cutting a dry sponge. We got a crime brûlée for desert and is was runny like a soup so not very appealing.
Ambiance certainly is nice.

Converted corner house and yard into a restaurant. Yard and patio were plain. Half of the lights that decorated the tree and fence were out. That wasn't the issue. $43.00 steak was mediocre as was wife's salmon with gnocchi. Both drinks weren't made well and our waiter wasn't very personable. Fair is about all I rate this place. It was our first date night away from our hometown since last year and the reviews gave them 4.4 stars. Very forgettable dinner and place!

Thank you for joining us. We are in the middle of landscaping the yard, and have indeed done some renovations on the patio. I'm sorry to hear that you felt things were mediocre. I am also sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your wine, cocktail, and meal. If staff are informed they will always do whatever they can to make sure you have a memorable experience. We are striving to do everything we can for our guests in very odd times. I would be happy to chat further about your evening if you have time.

Key disappointment was the Wagu ribeye. Order it med rare/rare and came out more med but since it was a Wagu I let the Dungeness slide as it was sure to be juicy...NOT. almost dry but had nice flavor. My guess is that though it was advertised Wagu it was not...not even prime, but just a choice cut. Rest of the meal and sides were good however.

Had the Char grilled wagyu ribeye and the char grilled hanger steak. Both melt in your mouth and so flavorful. Add some macaroni and you are set for some awesomeness. Really enjoyed our evening.

It was good enough to come back and try other menu items. The pork chop was really good. My wife ordered the fish and chips, which was average. My son ordered the wagyu burger and he said it was great. Overall it was a cool casual spot and I plan on going back to try the rib eye.

We were regular customers under former ownership. $26 for a few slices of Hangar Steak and an underwhelming scatter of skinny fries is way overpriced, even for Ashland. The BLT salad was much better and more fairly priced at $12. Waiting 10 minutes for a draft beer is too long. Would like to see the duck confit and side of baked beans returned to the menu. Also miss the peppercorn sauce. Your question about recommending Smithfileds to a friend is hard to answer. I would say a cautious yes to that friend but warn him about the prices. I must also mention that the service, though pleasant, was uneven to the point of disorganzation. Food and service is Brickroom level but at Amuse prices. Thai Pepper, Ostra's, Kobi, and Cucina Biazzi offer better value and...right now, at least...better food.

Thank you so much for joining us. I am sorry to hear that you feel your experience was so uneven. We are all working under new guidelines for service in Oregon. So, I can understand that the service might have felt a little off the normal pace, but we are all trying to figure out the new normal. I also recognize that prices have gone up. Unfortunately, the price of all goods, especially meat, have skyrocketed in the last month. We will strive to address your concerns and we hope to see you back.

We have dined here multiple times, as we live locally. The food, service, value and atmosphere were all excellent. The cocktails were not as outstanding as they have been in the past, which was a disappointment. All in all, we’ll definitely return. However I’ll no longer look forward to the BEST cocktails in the area when dining here.

Really loved the hangar steak and the fries with the bernaise sauce! Cooked at the right temperature and the fries were crispy and they had a very friendly staff. I had a pleasant experience but I want to give them more credit bc of the table next to me complaining about everything and the staff was so courteous and kind and accommodating without any sort of attitude (even though I was starting to think these ladies were being high maintenance and I would have given them attitude myself) but truly a lovely experience at Smithfields ❤️
