I was delighted to take my out-of-town in-laws to Smithfield during their Mother's Day visit this year. I called to make my brunch reservation and advised it was for Mother's Day, asked for a window seating, and stated how I loved the buffet brunch! I was told there was a seating at 1pm, 2 pm, or 3 pm. I took... More

Ate here with a group of 12. Server kept everything organized and remained very pleasant in spite of the group size. Smithfield is known for pork/ham so it was well reflected in the offerings. Limited breakfast comes with the room. Lunch on the deck is a great option!

We reserved ahead, so we received a window table. A great view of the marina and river. The crab cake dinner was excellent. Two tasty crab cakes, Mostly crab with only the filler needed to hold it together. Service was friendly, helpful and quick. Looks like a great place too for a party or event. Parking can be an issue.... More

We just ate their Mothers Day Brunch, food was terrific. I had an omelet with: fresh crab meat; Smithfield Ham; onions; and cheese (very nice!). They had fresh made cinnamon buns that were out of sight! They have brunch every Sunday, it would be best if you call. Their Lunchtime Specials around $10 and well worth it. I like the... More

This is a confusing place. It has a nice view on the Pagan River but the food is very expensive and definitely not gourmet. Also, the service is more like a chain then a nice restaurant. We ordered baked oysters as an appetizer. It cost $6.00 more than Barrets, a nice restaurant in Williamsburg. The platter was brought out and... More

Don't miss this great local spot if you are anywhere near Smithfield , Virginia. Beautiful views and a marvelous sunset are available when you sit on the deck. Local seafood at moderate prices. Very child friendly

We ate dinner here twice while staying at the hotel and were well pleased each time. The crabcakes was absolutely delicious and the broiled seafood platter was cooked to perfection but the chef was a mite over-generous with the red pepper. The small portion was more than enough food. Please save room for dessert - they are all mouth watering.

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet on a recent Sunday morning and it was a great value for $14.95 and included everything from an omelet station, biscuits and gravy, fruit, a waffle station and more.
