Smithfield, Virginia is home to the Smithfield Ham Company. Anyone who knows their ham considers Smithfield the Ham Capital of the World. So I was pleasantly surprised to find a menu at the Smithfield Inn that wasn't, er, hamhanded. One a perfect summer day, my friends and I sat on the outdoor covered patio and enjoyed one the best lunches... More

We've been going here for over ten years and have witnessed the subtle and major changes to the Inn. This one was a disappointment. First of all, they grouped every reservation into three time slots, 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, and 3:00 PM, as if we were part of one large group. None of these times suited us but we chose... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Smithfield Inn. Would recommend it highly. Breakfast was very good. This is a charming little town.

If you want a long leisurely meal this is the place for you. First of all we were assigned a window table right over an airconditioning unit which was blasting cold air so forcefully that the floor-length drapes billowed into my lap. Even a hard -backed dinner menu was blown to one side by the blast of air, until I... More

Great menu. I had the crab cakes which were awesome. Very little filler, mostly crab. They don't skimp on the portions. Ate out on the patio, where they had live music. Service is a bit slow, but this is the kind of place you come and stay for awhile.

My wife and I took a day trip to visit Smithfield and stopped here for an early lunch. We had ham biscuits and fried green tomatoes. Yum. I had sweet tea that was made perfectly. They do however have a full bar. This place is definitely worth a visit.

The Smithfield Inn is a lovely historic hotel full of charm. We stayed in the Capt. Mallory Todd room for two nights which was comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was included and proved to be ample. Our last night we also dined with friends in the more formal dining room which we had to ourselves on a Wed. night while locals... More

Amazing food. Excellent service. Oysters Rockefeller was light and creamy. She Crab soup had excellent flavor and the Ham, Cheddar and Apple melt sandwich was outstanding.

This is by far our favorite restaurant in the Smithfield area. The food is excellent, wait staff generally knowledgeable and accommodating if you have a special request. The she-crab soup is, in our opinion, the best in Hampton Roads!

We started with a soup course. It was quite tasty. We then progressed to a salad and sandwich. Both of them were good but we're not outstanding or remarkable in any way. The wait staff is very professional and the service is good. The bar and bartender were exceptional. All in all a nice place to eat but not a... More
