Slow down and enjoy a family style meal. Food is country cooking at its best! Service is friendly and speedy. You will not leave here hungry! The atmosphere is welcoming and beautiful. Great lunch or dinner spot. Fried Chicken and Fried Okra are the best!

Was quoted a room rate and when we checked out the price was much higher. Front desk advised that was a week day rate and not Friday rate. However we reserved for Friday for rate that was quoted for that night. The room was nice and clean with nice amenities.

I have no complaints. It was what was expected as advertised. Not pretentiously taking advantage of its lovely history. Delightful.

We stayed at The Smith House the first weekend in March. The room was wonderful. The dinner Friday night at The Smith House was great. We loved being so close to the Dahlonega town square and enjoyed visiting the many shops Saturday morning. The people who work at The Smith House are very friendly.

Because of a lack of specifics on its website, I wasn't sure what to expect at The Smith House. But no worries! Our queen room (#7) was clean, comfortable, and convenient to historic downtown Dahlonega. After reading comments about noise outside the room, we took our white noise machine and had absolutely no issues, in spite of the fact that... More

Good, simple food. Nice for a family get together.... Not so much for a couple's night out. Alright southern cuisine.

Heard about this place for years but never been till now. Friends visiting from out of state were hungry and wanted some country cooking. Too much food to eat. Fried chicken and okra were perfect. Real mashed potatoes as well. Too many good things to list. Will say the roast was ok, but disappointing compared to the rest.

Bed was super comfortable and we had an awesome visit. It was a bit expensive but if they can stay sold out, why not?

It had been 23 years since I visited The Smith House, so was not sure if my return visit would be as good. Not to worry, it was much better!! The traditional southern dishes were wheeled out on a cart in bowls and served family style. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and the offerings consisted of pot roast... More

Famous for our all-you-can eat family style meals. Country vegetable and fried chicken is everyone's favorite. Stay in our historic inn and visit our historic town square of Dahlonega where the first Gold Rush was located. The Smith House is locked one block from the square.
