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.

What a great place and fantastic dinner! The complimentary valet parking gets you right to the front door and there is a cozy lounge and bar to enjoy an adult beverage before dinner.

Dinner for four -- three got the specials of the night which were great values, fourth diner ordered steak medium but came out rare. Service was acceptable. Manager checked in with the table multiple times which I thought was a nice touch. Would return again - especially to check jazz night.

It was a beautiful day and the town of Smithville was packed. Additionally, there was a wedding reception set to take place at the Smithville Inn, so it was really buzzing around the restaurant when we arrived. We were greeted with nothing but smiles and immediately taken to our table. You could see that the staff were busy but you couldn't tell as they were handling everything flawlessly.

This was just our second time here and we will definitely be back for a third visit! Our dinner was prepared exactly as we asked (steaks cooked medium and medium well) and Laura was on-point with her service. A very enjoyable evening made just a touch more special by the piano player, who was playing softly in the background.

Ambiance and food were awesome! Although I loved the piano player and the music, our table was seated directly in front of him. The music was very relaxing. Just wish we were located slightly farther away since I felt like we had to strain to hear one another at times.

We were greeted by the very pretty and pleasant hostess who showed us to our table that offered an outstanding view. Our Order was taken promptly and delivered in a reasonable amount of time. Water was kept full and we were asked periodically if we needed anything. I had the London Broil which was very good. She had the Chicken Pot Pie that was also delicious. One thing I would have liked would have been the server to acknowledge our Wedding Anniversary since I included that on the reservation. Overall a nice dinner at the place we were married 12 years ago.

Our family always enjoys the Sunday Smithville Brunch, the food is always so good and they offer a wide selection. The servers are so attentive and always pleasant. I am also impressed that the owner visits all the tables to ask how things are. We love the atmosphere in the Inn and this time we were lucky enugh to get a window seat overlooking the beautiful gardens.
I have hosted 2 showers at the Inn , one a wedding shower and the other a baby shower and I was so happy with the outcome that I will surely choose Smithville in the future for other events.

Had a great time at the Smithville Inn. The food was delicious!! We had the best appetizer special, Pork and Broccoli Rabe egg roll. My stuffed pork chop was mouthwatering and my husband had the Chicken Pot Pie. Can't wait to return for another great meal.

Outstanding in all categories! Perused the lunch special menu, but decided to get their Caesar salad (large enough to split for an appetizer) as a main with salmon. The salmon was brought and served by Laura piping hot from the kitchen. Excellent and it had an accompanying Parmesan crisp. My friend always enjoys their crabcake with sweet potato fries. Delicious!

Our server was very friendly and nice but forgetful. We did not get our drinks until after our appetizers. The chicken pot pie was not as good as usual and my salad was drowning in salad dressing. It was very crowded and may not had enough staff for the day. I would definitely go back and hope this was just an anomaly for them.

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!

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.
