My husband loves the grilled lobster. We’ve always enjoyed the salad bar. I usually order swordfish. They have crackers and cheese available. Bottled beer is available as well as a bar, but no draft beer. They do not take reservations, but have a sitting area.

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!

We generally eat there 2 or 3 times a year and are never disappointed. The meals have always been good and the service also has been good. Prices are typical of the area. I would say they are not overpriced, but not cheap. The salad...More

I always come here in the winter with my family. The steaks are very good, and the side of bearnaise sauce is a decent size. The salad bar was bare bones this past time we went, some containers were cleared at the salad bar for...More

I know they have a back room but don't remember how large it is. Best to just call them and ask. Also, might try the "Stone Barn" it is part of Whitney Farms golf course (also in Monroe). We have had showers there (this past... More
