We ate outside on the beautiful tea light lit patio. The menu is a blend of classic steak house and southern comfort food. Everything we have ever ordered here has been delicious. The portions are generous enough to share, but you might not want to because everything is so good.

You're seated and they bring you a bag of spicy popcorn right away! They brought plain popcorn for me (capsaicin allergy) and my child no problem! Nice touch that started off the meal nicely! Bacon beignets with a maple chive creme fraiche to start were phenomenal. SO GOOD. I had the hanger steak, subbing the smoked blue cheese shallot sauce... More

The restaurant and the bar are separate buildings!! That threw us for a bit of a loop but then we figured out that we wanted to be at the bar for the live music!! It was funky and down to earth with nice casual people who enjoy music!

We were fortunate, years ago, to be part of Smithfields "soft opening and menu tryouts." About five years later, they're still bringing on the steaks with superb, helpful service and a nicely focused wine list. If you appreciate good steak, and know how you like it cooked, give Smithfields a try. When your server asks "how would you like that... More

We each had the hanger steak, one with the au poivre sauce and the other with a red wine reduction. Both were cooked perfectly and not overwhelmed with sauce. The server gave very good recommendations on wine based on our dinner selections and preferences. The atmosphere is informal. There are a number of expensive, formal restaurants in Ashland which seems... More

The charcuterie board was wonderful and the cheese board that followed was tremendous. One challenge to the chef... as a nose to tail steak house, where are the jowls, the calf's tongue.... I can only imagine how much further you could take your concept. Oh, and the wait staff was friendly and professional. We'd go back without hesitation.

We had dinner and a Sunday brunch and enjoyed both. The dinner was in the outdoor seating area, which I highly recommend when the weather is nice. The seats in the uppermost section have a valley view. While there are other items on the menu, this is "hog heaven" for meaties. Lots of good choices well prepared. My brunch recommendation...

An hour from sitting down to plates in front of us is too long. Not many diners so the problem must have been with staffing. Particularly since the food was very good to excellent. Steak was tender and flavorful with terrific hand cut fries and peppercorn sauce. And the goat cheese soufflé was also excellent. Scallops were very good but... More

This restaurant lives up to its billing: good American food. Excellent steaks, wonderful cod fish-n-chips (BIG piece perfectly fried-lite), delicious mac'ncheeze, good wine and good service.
