Incredibly good service from Nicole. We are so glad we stopped in for a simple lunch. You get a sense of the Smithville history, not available at the other nearby restaurants.

Old world charm meets new world hospitality in this lovely lakeside landmark. A longtime locals favorite serving award winning classic continental cuisine with a modern flair. The restaurant, resurrected from an uncertain future in 1997 by the combined efforts of the Coppola & Bushar families, has since reclaimed its spot among the favorite dining locations in the Atlantic City area.
