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 tried the Tavern side this time and really enjoyed it. There is a great fireplace there with a long bar and it's a more casual atmosphere than the formal restaurant. The tavern has the same menu, so the food experience is the same. But I would not place a huge table right in front of the fireplace though...rather arrange the tables around it to not block the view & good vib.

Great service, food and drinks delicious. Wonderful dining experience. Started with fried calamari, stuffed mushrooms and shrimp cocktail. All were excellent. Party of 4, had prime rib, lamb, crab cakes, braised beef pasta and all were well prepared and flavorful. You can tell the food is thought out with different flavors and touches that make it unique. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

It’s been on our bucket list, and so happy it’s now done...complete waste of money and time! I have absolutely no idea what people rave about...the minute we sat down, we were greeted with our water glasses that were filthy and caked with food. We have no problem with spending money on food, but don’t insult us! The service was good, but everything else left a lot to be desired. 😢

Great food at Smithville. I like that you can stroll in the Village and eat in the Bar section of the Smithville Inn, or enjoy a special night out with a beautiful view of the lake. The lights on all the trees make it very romantic too. Must try their Chicken Pot Pie...it is fabulous!

Very good all you can eat brunch. Excellent selection of foods, and nice view of the pond. Beverage service was a little spotty but it could have been an off day. Very quick clearing of the used dishes and good overall cleanliness and freshening of food at the buffet. Would definitely try it again.

Went for our 5 year anniversary, and we were also married at Smithville Inn. Food is always phenomenal. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating. LOVE the live piano. Never anything negative to say about this place. Walked around Smithville first, and they were able to accommodate us when we asked to be seated early.

Excellent food in a great setting. Large portions, great tast and great value. Nice that a restaurant thinks highly of its patrons and takes reservations in the village. The butternut squash soup is phenomenal. THE place to eat in the village!!

We both ordered the Prime Rib which came with Yorkshire Pudding, baked potato and string beans. It also came with a nice salad which was very fresh. The Prime Rib was very tender and tasty. I had a French Pear Martini, which was awesome! Service was top notch. Can't wait to go back!!!

Smithville Inn is consistently outstanding. The Sunday brunch can't be beat. There is everything there - from breakfast omelets to sushi to a mashed potato bar, full salad bar, carving station, you name it, it's there. The quality of the food is outstanding. The service is outstanding. The atmosphere is outstanding. Just can't be beat!

We love the Smithville Inn and are looking forward to our next visit unfortunately this past visit was a bit subpar. We were seated in a very crowded section and the area was very noisy. We were their celebrating our Anniversary so a table in the lower section by the window near the pond would have been much nicer where we have always been sat when we previously visited. The service was just okay. We ate half our meal before we were asked how our food was and my wife had an empty wine glass for five minutes before she was asked if she wanted a second glass. Last year we celebrated our Anniversary there and the manager came over and wished us a Happy Anniversary and thanked us for coming, this year nothing. We saw the manager walking around but never stopped by our table. The food was outstanding but overall just an okay experience this time.

Took my mom here for lunch because of the cute Smithville town and pond view. Lunch was nice. Food was good, nothing fabulous. Wished there were more hot sandwich options. Waiter was such a great guy. We enjoyed ourselves

Smithville Inn was always our go to place for special occasions. The last couple of visits were hit or miss. Last night definitely a miss. The Smithville Inn salad dressing was not very well balanced. Very oily. Walnuts were not crisp and hardly any Parmesan cheese. Rack of lamb was ordered medium rare. Came to the table blood red. Sent it back and second time still raw. On the other hand my husbands steak was delicious. Not sure if I will try again.

Monday dining is probably not a good idea unless you can go early. We had a 7:30 reservation and by 8:45 they were cleaning up around us. Most of the staff including management left and our server was left alone to accommodate us. She was great and offered to serve dessert herself since no one was in the kitchen!!! When fine dining at a restaurant of this quality I don’t appreciate being rushed. Perhaps listing their hours as closing early at the beginning of the week would be a better idea. We would adjust accordingly. Our fine dining experience turned into a rushed and uncomfortable experience. I hate when plates are being cleared while I am still finishing my dinner.

The food was disappointing. One of our party sent the dinner back. There was quite a wait for our meals. We will skip this place in the future.
