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.

We could not get a table by the window even though we were there early enough. Took a while to be acknowledged but the waiter. The food was excellent and the ambience was perfect. Would definitely return and recommend it to others.

It was our first time there. A group of us took my sister-in-law for her 30th wedding anniversary in place of my brother who passed on 2/11/19. I asked for the picture window view overlooking the lake and that’s exactly where we were sat. The food was delicious and the staff very pleasant. I will definitely be back and will gladly share my experience with others. Thanks for accommodating our group. God Bless you!

Very nice "old fashion" restaurant. Food was quite good and the service was excellent. Loved the piano music. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out or for a special occasion.

Excellent service. Our assistant waiter assured that our water glasses were always topped off. Our waiter also assured that we were happy with all aspects of our meal. The restaurant manager also assured that service and food were up to our expectations. Wonderful experience.

Sunday buffet was excellent. I do think it's a little expensive and I wish there was separate pricing for children.

I made my brunch reservation and confirmed said reservation many weeks ago. Yet despite my actions when I checked in the receptionist couldn’t find it. I offered to show her my smart phone with my confirmation number but she choose instead to shuttle me and my party off to a table. We received excellent service from Suzanne. However along with my missing reservation was the missing birthday cake I ordered.... then I received several e mails accusing me of not honoring my reservation.

The Smithville Inn has so much going for it. It has fabulous food, a great view, and the best waitress named Laura. Laura makes a dinner at the Smithville Inn such a special night. She's attentive, remembers every detail, and has such a pleasing personality. Another great dinner thanks to Laura!

The food was great. Huge variety. I’m not a big fan of most typical breakfast food but there was more than enough that I was able to enjoy. We went at 1015 and it wasn’t to busy but when we were finished up it started to get really busy so I recommend going before 1130.

I've been coming to Smithville Inn since 1966 (albeit with my parents back then!). Smithville has had it's ups and downs over the years. From being owned by CBS to the Merv Griffin days with the quality tracking accordingly. My daughter loves the Pot Pye and we usually make at least an annual visit to celebrate. This year they seemed to have upped their game over the past few years. Some nice cosmetic fixes that still retain the colonial look and feel. The food was absolutely outrageous. I had the Prime Rib, which was 95% meat with just a nice trim of fat around the edges. My daughter of course had the Pot Pye and the rest of our group had the Short Ribs which were to die for! One of the wines we selected was unavailable and the replacement recommendation was spot on. Good job by everybody!

The Smithville Inn has a wonderful Sunday brunch. There is such a large selection and everything is delicious. The Inn has a lovely quaint atmosphere. My family has been to the brunch several times and the service has been great every time. If you are in the area, you don’t want to miss having brunch at this historic inn.
