We stopped at The Smithy without any prior research and were delighted. They offered a starter cheese and cracker gratis. We split crab stuffed mushrooms which were delicious. The salad bar was small but adequate. The best part of the meal was the steak - beautifully cooked with a simple baked potato. The service was friendly, clearly a place the locals frequent.

Amazing to find such a solid, long standing, local establishment! It's the kind of place we've stumbled upon during travels in European home-towns. These folks know their customers by name, treat the newcomers (us) like old friends, and serve solid plates of hearty fare. Very fresh salad bar. We were seated promptly, beers served cold, cocktails generous. All 4 entrees served at once with correct temperatures. Steaks and duck were all very good. We comfortably lingered over dessert and after dinner drinks,

Recently dined with another couple on a Saturday night. Despite not talking reservations we were quickly seated in a somewhat cramped area in the rear of the restaurant. The much talked about cheese board was underwhelming, as was the bare bones salad bar. We all ordered various steak entrees, which were perfectly cooked and flavorful. Service was excellent as well.
Overall, a pleasant dining experience at a reasonable price.

The Smithy has been in the same place with the same menu for a reason......it works! Love the cheese board, salad bar and always perfect steaks! I remember going here for date night with my father around 40 years ago! Now, as a married woman, I go half a dozen times a year with my husband, because it's always very good!

Small but terrific, if you get there anytime after 5:20 expect a long wait but it is worth it, Nice salad bar and bread station AND a cheese bar all included with your meal. I ordered the filet mug on and it was perfect my wife had the cod and she raved about it. Not overpriced and worth the trip.
