I think there are a few areas that can improve the experience easily. Like a better French fry option. The burger in our meal was found to be outstanding. The hanger steak was good, but nothing special. Good drinks, fair pricing.

The food was amazing, especially the roasted bone marrow app and the scallops developed plate! Great selection of drinks. Happy hour appetizers were amazing and for great prices. Service was a little slow for some, but not if you’re on your anniversary and you want to just enjoy each other. We were told dessert was on them for our anniversary but when the bill came, it wasn’t. We didn’t contest the bill because that’s tacky, but if you were on a budget it makes a difference. Can’t wait to go back, especially for small plates and drinks.

Smithfield’s for breakfast is a joy. In particular, their bacon is amazing. I thought all bacon was pretty much alike. I was so wrong! And the “rice flour muffins” are more like crumpets, and really delicious. As is everything.

Food was presented nicely and was very full flavored.
The rib eye steak was a bit fatty and was cooked to soft, made it hard to cut, but it tasted very good and the mashed potatoes and sauce were wonderful.
Scallop dish was very good, risotto was delicious.

The hub and I really enjoyed our dinner here-not a gimmicky menu-lots of meat expertly prepared!

I had the hanger steak and husband had the ribeye- the steaks...perfect, the fries...PERFECT, the starting salad...perfect, the collard greens...perfect! We ended with coffee and the creme brulee-- my only suggestion would be to expand the dessert menu a bit, but the creme brulee was good!

Oh and if you like cashews, the curried cashes are a nice simple starting bite

Loved our table and the service was EXCELLENT!- they really have it down.

We look forward to our bi-annual trip to Ashland and Smithfields will be part of it!

Small kitchen turns out exquisite food. Each portion of the plate is crafted by a chef and cared for till it is placed on your table. We had 1 server yet all servers played a harmonic balance of care for all tables. A little on the loud side so for one on one meals I would suggest sitting side by side. Wonderful place, much Mahaloz!!

Steaks were tough & just okay flavor while very expensive. Have to purchase side dishes separately. Service was so-so, not very attentive (especially for the prices). Very casual atmosphere (shorts, stocking & ball caps). Rather loud & not what we were expecting based on what we'd been told about this restaurant.

Smithfields was a pleasant surprise as it was not as upscale and pricey as we'd been told. My souffle was not what I expected but was tasty although extremely rich and not light at all. Our companions enjoyed their dinners although the ribs were very fatty and quite pink. We'll probably try Smithfields again. Bar was noisy.

Well, tge place had come highly recommended, and I'd previewed the menu online, so I figured it was varied enough for our foursome. We must have been seated at the darkest table in the joint. Glasses didn't help reading the menu. Neither did light from the cell phone. Thankfully a server had a FLASHLIGHT we could all share. Really? Oh...tgey explained it was for "ambiance". Doesn't fly when 3 are 80+ years old. Place was noisy, but manageable. 2 ordered BBQ ribs. Very unimpressed by the fattiness & lackluster BBQ sauce. Salmon special was good. Should be for $30. BBQ brisket was decent enough. Sides of an overpriced & truly bland & disappointing Mac & cheese & the baked beans (one thought they tasted canned!!) were buzz-kills. I'd return...flashlight in hand if we had the same table by the kitchen. Next time I guess I'd venture for a steak & expect tgat with an added sauce/topping it might be something to get excited about. We passed on dessert. But service was decent & friendly.

Everything I have tried is incredibly good. Not a lot if choices for vegetarian but great selection for those who eat meat. Not cheap but food quality and inventiveness meets the price. Over all I would highly recommend Smithfield. They also have my favorite British beer so that's just another plus for me.

We were happy that we made a reservation since it was a very busy late morning Sunday crowd. The waitstaff was attentive and made every effort to accommodate us on our pre-theatre timing. We both had the berry & oat flapjack with clotted cream and maple syrup -- it was excellent! Rich and buttery, lots of berries, and a very nice crunch to the edges of the flapjack. We'll be back!

We were somewhat disappointed with this experience, but we have decided that because it was at an early hour, the wait staff wanted to turn the table its earliest convenience. It was somewhat obvious. We understand that early diners are subject to being moved out in favor of another seating, but it should not be as noticeable as it was, especially considering that the meals are not inexpensive.

We were the first ones in at 5:15 with reservation and waited 40 minutes for food. The brisket was very dry and the sauce was not that good, although that could be personal taste. I wanted a 5:30 reservation but on line said there was none and had to come at 5:15 instead. But no other diners arrived until 5:45. The salad was very good which earned the 2 stars in spite of very unsatisfactory brisket, although it was a generous portion. Waitress was very good.

Every dish we had was spectacular! Your biggest challenge will be how to combine their offerings in order to truly appreciate what they have. I will never again order an appetizer like the fabulous bacon beigbettes in combination with any main course celebrating bacon! Way too rich and portions are generous.
What was disappointing is that with booking went the statement of special occasion (birthday) and that was never picked up on😐

When i visit Ashland (Annually for the last 3 years), I've returned and each time I have had great tasting food; whether on the menu or "specials". A little costly, but not a lot of restaurant choices in Ashland that are reasonablly priced for the quality of food you receive.

Smithfields is my adult granddaughter's favorite restaurant in Ashland, and I don't argue. They do the best steaks around, and scrumptious sides and appetizers. For those who aren't as meat-oriented, I can recommend the scallops and risotto that I had this time. Yum. The service is excellent. Wish I could talk dessert, but we never have room!
