If you and your family are looking for a good, hearty meal in the Monroe-Trumbull area of Connecticut, you'll probably be pleased with your experience at The Smithy, as it's know by locals. The restaurant has many long-term fans.

My kids and I love the steak at the Smithy! My son enjoyed his porterhouse nice and rare and we had demi-strip sirloins. Always great steak and the salad bar is simple and delicious!

Arrived at 6pm on a Saturday and waited for 40 minutes to be seated. They did have a nice lounge area where we waited and had a few drinks. Sangria was not really sangria - just a cheap red wine with fruit in it. Like...More

This was my first visit here...food was good; loved the salad bar (so many are disappearing); the cheese bar is a novel experience but the one thing that struck me the most was the family-like casual atmosphere. When we arrived right at opening, we were...More
