The Smithy has been there for a long time for a good reason! The steaks are great and the price is right! The salad bar is perfect, and the cheese table always has something different on it each time!

The meal was excellent as always. The atmosphere was better since they added more lighting. Unfortunately, we sat next to a table of four people who had too much to drink and were extremely loud and used vulgar language.

Amazing to find such a solid, long standing, local establishment! It's the kind of place we've stumbled upon during travels in European home-towns. These folks know their customers by name, treat the newcomers (us) like old friends, and serve solid plates of hearty fare. Very...More
