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.

Antipasto was very nice.
Onion soup was good.
Ordered medium rare and it came medium well. Waiter agreed and offered to take it back, but I wanted to eat with everyone else, so ate it anyway. Paid full price.
Chicken Pot Pies were excellent.
Limited dessert selections, did not order any.
Noisy.

We were given a table in the back against a wall with no view. If you make a reservation please note that you would like a table next to a window with a view of the beautiful lake.

I normally love coming here. However, the service left a lot to be desired on Thursday. Normally my mom's chicken pot pie comes with a salad, that never came. The sandwiches were not hot. The waiter came to the table once for drinks, once for order...then nothing until dessert. Then the check was brought. Tea with milk was ordered. Milk was only brought after reminding waiter. My mother's coffee went unfilled. No utensils were given for dessert. To go boxes were left on table without any utensil to put the chicken pot pie in, in the past (last week) the waitress took it to station and packaged it and placed in a bag, we had to walk out with the individual meals in hand for our ride home.

Always consistent and service is always wonderful. Service is so very important along with good food. We often dine out and attentive service has been an issue. Cannot understand after all we have been through with the pandemic why service would not be wonderful with happy interested servers. Thank you Smithvlle for this and we will be back soon.

What a delightful throwback. The food was all delicious (huge portions), the service delightful and the ambience with the piano music just lovely. Not a complaint about the visit other than there was no wine by the glass list, so I had to ask the server. Would have preferred to have a look at the options.

The food was delicious. The slab bacon appetizer was perfect. Just enough for 2 to share with a beer or cocktail. Followed up by the pot pie and garden salad. There was plenty for a doggie bag.

It is a disappointment to many that you no longer offer turkey on your menu, especially in November. It was always a favorite. It was taken off the dinner menu ages ago, but at least you could find it on the luncheon menu. Now it seems all together gone.

Brianna was our server and she was outstanding. Never left us waiting or trying to find her. We asked questions about the menu and she knew details of all the entree items. Food was absolutely delicious from soup through dessert. Can't wait to go back for more. Make sure you get Brianna!

It was a cold night and we went in for their French onion soup and chicken pot pie. While both were delicious, the pot pie was outstanding! The best we’ve ever had there. Highly recommend

We had a delicious meal to celebrate our Anniversary at the Smithville Inn. The atmosphere was perfect and the Halloween themed decor was lovely. Our servers were excellent! The food was tasteful and presented nicely. I have multiple dietary restrictions and they were able to accommodate all of them- gluten, dairy and shellfish free. It’s the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or just have a wonderful meal.
