Old world charm meets new world hospitality in this lovely lakeside landmark. A longtime locals favorite serving award winning classic continental cuisine with a modern flair. The restaurant, resurrected from an uncertain future in 1997 by the combined efforts of the Coppola & Bushar families, has since reclaimed its spot among the favorite dining locations in the Atlantic City area.

I have spent many lovely Sunday brunches at the Smithville inn. However last Sunday wasn't one of them. To start,my water glass was very dirty. The soup spoon provided for the cup of soup barely fit in the thimble of soup we were served. The prime rib sandwich was well overdone and the horseradish sauce had absolutely no flavor. All in all it was disappointing.

The food was good... very nice luncheon fare...my wife had grilled salmon with roasted vegetables that she enjoyed very much. My BBQ pulled pork sandwich hit the spot. Service was attentive and informative. Very pleasant way to spend an early Wednesday afternoon.

We love The Smithville Inn and, call it a fluke, but our prime rib dinners were cold. Very unusual for this restaurant. Everything else was fabulous including the wait staff. We are coming back on Valentine's day..

We had a wonderful lunch during the week at the Smithville Inn. Both our meals were delicious and the service was excellent. They are decorated for Valentine's Day which made the room we were in very cozy and calming. A big plus, is the way the tables are placed. There is easily 10 fee (if not more) between each table. Your safety is a high priority at this restaurant.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience. We were seated in the tavern section right next to the crackling fireplace. The food was delicious. We chose the salmon with lobster butter and the crab cakes. Dessert was warm apple pie filling with vanilla ice cream and Filo dough.

The restaurant was absolutely amazing!! Food, drinks, waitstaff, and atmosphere was great. I truly recommend this gem of a restaurant. I personally had the chicken Milanese and Caesar salad which was great and my guest had the house salad with the crabcake entrée and enjoyed it as well!

Food was excellent (crab cakes are delicious)..the onion soup was a meal in itself!
The house sangria was really good....
Our waitress was very attentive, answered all our questions, spent just the right amount of time with our party.
It was our 47th anniversary...and hopefully we will be celebrating many more at the Smithville Inn.

I have been coming to the Smithville Inn for Many Many years but always for Sunday Brunch. Since they have suspended Brunch for now do you COVID. We decided to try the Dinner.

It Was Amazing!!

The Server was on point throughout the meal. Our Drinks were also top notch from the bar. You could tell they were made with care. Bar drinks these days are typically just not that good. But here they were Great.

The Food was great from the salads to the entrees. We were a party of 4 and all 4 were great.

I do have two suggestions:

1. We asked for bread and were told by the server that it only comes with dinner. This was confusing as it was 12:00 Sunday and we ordered off the Dinner Menu. We had 2 Prime Rib, Crab Cake Dinner and the Seafood Bohuluabase.
2. Even with the great service and food I thought it was a bit pricy as our Bill with tip came in at just under $250.00 For the 4 of us. Hey maybe next time you could include some Bread 😊

Although realize revere tavern caters to adults, accommodations should be made for younger people, i.e. 13 and up; especially in these times when eating out is a special occasion, more thought could be taken into consideration when menu planning; my husband’s chicken w/arugula was just ok; think $25 for this dish is overpriced; realize that during covid many businesses have been affected both monetarily and physically; while we as adults enjoyed the atmosphere, fire was not lit b/c were told too warm out; get that but could have been a small fire that gives dining some ambiance and truly makes dining there a special experience; appreciate your wanting to hear from customers; we did enjoy being there and smithville does a wonderful job of making holidays more special; kudos to the magical lighting/song entertainment and just being a part of a community for so many years; have many happy memories of dining at the original Smithville Inn through the 50s, 60s and 70s; Fred and Ethel would want you to continue to be a destination, not just a stop;
