Had a nice visit in this old Victorian converted to a B&B. The rooms were big and spacious.Furniture was comfortable and the bed was big and comfy. The bathroom was a nice size although the shower was a bit small. The room was stocked with drinks and snacks which was nice. Because the inn is on a busy road, a... More

Had the experience of dining there for the first time last weekend in their small and elegant dining room. Our server was the best ever anywhere and the food was fantastic. Ordered a bottle of Ruffin 2014 Moscato d'Asti for $32. The next day we were in Farm Fresh in Suffolk and the identical bottle was $14 and some change.... More

We have made this a destination place every time we were in Williamsburg. Many many times. Lunches have been great and made the trip worthwhile. Prices have always until now been fair. However, the pricing is starting to cause us to think about making the trip. A bowl of She Crab soup is now $10. and not a very big... More

The room was nicely done with antiques and modern features. The location is perfect for exploring Smithfield. The staff were helpful and hard working. They are locals who add local suggestions for things to do. They kept the room stocked with water and snacks. They kept us in ice and glasses every night.

My wife and I took the ferry over to Smithfield yesterday (Aug 24) and we wound up at the Smithfield Inn for lunch. We have been here several times before and it never disappoints. Loads of outdoor and indoor seating available. After a long hot spell we were happy to enjoy the indoor seating in the tavern area. Our server... More

Surprised at how nice it is. The bar area was popular with families as the food offerings are slightly more casual there. There was live music the night we were there ( a Sat). We sat in the main restaurant. White table cloths, yet we were dressed casually and did not feel out of place. The food was good. I... More

I had luncheon at the Smithfield Inn with a group of 10 friends. Out of the 10 people, only 3 of the lunches were edible. I had a meatball sub and it was to salty to eat! I had onion rings that had a tasty crust, but they were served cold and the onions used were old and tough. You... More

First of all, the Smithfield Inn is undoubtedly the oldest place in the USA where I have slept and the experience was quite positive, but the inn is old, dating to 1752, so let's take that into consideration. I stayed in the George Washington suite for two nights, mid- week and enjoyed it. The AC worked fine. The suite is... More

We stayed in the yellow house next to the big Inn. We had a charming 2nd floor room. And there was a living room downstairs that is meant to be shared by anyone staying in that house. There was nobody else there at the time and we had a lovely time visiting with friends who live nearby. It felt like... More
