We were impressed w/ the big selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees! We especially enjoyed the she-crab soup and gluten free options. The staff were very attentive and friendly. We will definitely bring the family here next time we visit.

Stopped for a quick pick me up. Tea was fine, unsweetened as requested. Crab soup was rich with lots of crab meat. Service could have been better. Don't like having to flag down a waiter to ask for refills or having my glass taken away to fill when a pitcher is in view. Hubby had half a glass at the... More

Enjoyed the simple menu and the taste of fresh Ingredients including fresh pork products that Smithfield is know for. Loved the mural of the Hampshire Hogs feeding in a farm field. The service and food was so good at dinner we returned for lunch the next day.

They have a great lunch with soup and sandwich for a reasonable price. The breakfast menu has some ham dishes and usually ashore wait. Service has been great for me. I am single and usually eat more often than most because I live close to the restaurant.

Stopped here trying to find Smithfield Hams. This place not only have them, but also is a small cafe also. Decided to have a late lunch/early dinner. So glad we did. Had some of the BEST corn chowder I've ever had in all my travels. Also had the pulled pork wrap. Good pulled pork, just enough smoke flavor, with avocado,... More

If you're looking for pork products or peanuts, this is the place. Located in the heart of town, this is a good place for a quick bite or goodies to take home. Country ham and other pork selections, many flavors of peanuts, candies, kitchen and pig decorative items are pleasantly displayed.

We dined here while passing through and once again enjoyed our meal. We got two sweet teas and two of the Cuban sandwiches with ham salads on the side. Our server was friendly and attentive and was efficient with his tasks. We arrived one hour prior to closing and we never felt rushed or unwanted. The food was excellent and... More
